Rampart is an independent casino located in Summerlin; a suburb in the western part of the Las Vegas Valley. It is situated next to Suncoast on Rampart Blvd at Summerlin Parkway.
Rampart is part of the JW Marriott resort, but the two properties are operated separately. It offers several amenities, including a golf course, spa, small concert venue and several lounges. The casino has 57,610 square-feet of gambling space with over 1,500 slots and 30 table games. Aside from traditional casino games, there is also a sportsbook and bingo hall on the property.
The main table game featured at Rampart Casino is double deck blackjack, which offers limits of $5 to $1,000. Players may double down before and after splitting, aces may be split into four hands and the dealer hits on soft 17. Blackjack pays 3-2 at all double deck games. Six-deck blackjack is spread with the same rules plus surrender.

Ultimate Texas Hold’em is also offered with limits of $5 to $50. Crazy4Poker has the same minimum and maximum bets as Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
The video poker at Rampart was downgraded after the casino changed its player club in 2017. All of the full pay video poker games were removed. The best game these days is 8/5 Bonus Poker (99.17%), but other 99% video poker games include 9/6 Double Double Bonus and 25/15/9 Deuces Wild. All these games are spread in nickel, dime, quarter, half-dollar, dollar and two-dollar denominations.
The sportsbook at Rampart is operated by South Point, and it shares a mobile sports betting app. The Rampart sportsbook is completely nonsmoking but there is a bar that permits smoking in the back.

Rampart hosts a 300-seat bingo room. Sessions start at 11 AM daily. A new one starts every two hours. The last bingo session is at 9 PM on weeknights and 11 PM on weekends.
Rampart Casino uses the Rampart Rewards for its players club which is unique to this casino. Slot players earn one point for every $1 in coin-in. Video poker takes $2 to earn one point.
