Jerry’s Nugget is a casino located in North Las Vegas. The surrounding neighborhood is rather depressed and dilapidated, and a drive through the Las Vegas homeless corridor is required to get to it from downtown Las Vegas. It typically attracts a working-class crowd, which is reflected in the lower limits posted on tables and small denominations on video poker and slots.

Jerry’s Nugget is most well known for its low limit table games. Players will find $2 craps and $3 blackjack. The craps offers double odds with the field paying double on 12.
