Approximately a month ago, at the request of one of my hosts, I went to Atlantic City to play craps at Wild Wild West in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Wild Wild West is a casino that is connected to Bally’s and Caesars.

The casino in view through the doors is the upper floor of Caesars Palace Atlantic City. To the left is the walkway to Wild Wild West.

The Wild Wild West casino abuts to the Atlantic City Boardwalk. If you stay at the property, the Atlantic City Boardwalk is directly outside, and the beach is approximately 100 yards or so away.

This the the Wild Wild West casino. The doors in the right of the pic are the exits to the Atlantic City Boardwalk.

Go to those doors and the beach is nearby…

All three casinos are owned by Caesars Entertainment. Wild Wild West is Caesars Entertainment’s attempt to attract the younger crowd with loud music and a concert stage. The casino becomes very loud starting around 6 pm or so, with blaring music that is designed to turn the casino into a dance club or concert venue.

If you want to know how loud, wait until Part 2 of my Wild Wild West Casino video. Many of the Wild Wild West dealers wear earplugs to prevent hearing loss.

Notice the wild west theme that is prevalent in the facade, props, and wall paintings.

Behind the gaming pit, there is a stage on which a live band performs…

The same stage at night, when it’s in full effect. The stage is directly behind the table games pit, which includes the craps table. The music is loud. You’ll get an idea of how loud when you watch Part 2 of my Wild Wild West craps video.

As the evening approaches on the weekends, a live band comes on stage and usually performs cover songs. On weekdays, it’s usually recorded songs, but there is the same type of party atmosphere.

Wild Wild West has the typical assortment of casino games, but at very low limits. Most table games are $5 minimums.

The casino that has a name and motif that isn’t consistent with its’ current marketing attempt. Nowadays, the casino is trying to cater to younger gamblers, with its’ music and Top 50 dance club promotions. That’s somewhat at odds with the wild wild west theme, which may be a remnant of the original design when the casino opened in the late 90s.

 

The table games pit, in full swing, late at night on Friday. The craps game can get packed.

Wild Wild West also exits to Bally’ Resort and Casino, where you will find an older and more subdued crowd, if that’s your preference. It’s also much quieter at Bally’s.

This is the exit to Bally’s Resort and Casino.

Overall, I found the casino to be fun and enjoyable.  There’s a palpable energy in the casino. The younger gamblers make for a fun crowd. Almost everyone is betting in the $5 range, so no one is risking significant money. Win or lose, almost everyone is having a good time.

The employees, especially the table game staff, are very friendly. They’re probably the friendliest dealers in Atlantic City, by a wide margin. Even when disputes happen, they’re resolved in friendly ways.

RECOMMENDATION

I highly recommend the Wild Wild West casino for it’s low limits, cheap gambling, friendly staff, and accessibility to the Atlantic City Boardwalk.

Good luck at the casino!
