A Little About Flamingo Las Vegas
The original Flamingo, built in 1946 by casino pioneer and reputed gangster "Bugsy" Siegel, is considered by many to be the model from which modern casino gambling evolved. The Flamingo has been renovated and expanded repeatedly since its early days, and now boasts 3,642 rooms. Because of the way the hotel has grown, it's not particularly well laid out. Some of the rooms are a five minute walk from the elevators.
The casino at Flamingo, while not large by the standards of Caesar's or Bellagio, contains all of the slots, video poker and table games you'd expect to find. The Flamingo is known for its sports book, which features many attractive betting options and low vigs during football season.
