Many of the most successful casinos in Las Vegas are themed, from Caesar’s Palace with its ancient Roman theme to Luxor with its ancient Egyptian one. The Manilow Paris Las Vegas hotel and casino has the obvious theme of Paris, France. Further, as the name suggests, it is also the Las Vegas home of Barry Manilow, the famous singer.

As for the actual gambling, the Manilow Paris offers baccarat (and mini-baccarat), craps, Pai Gow Poker, poker, and roulette.

Pai Gow Poker, which integrates some of the rules from Chinese dominoes (Pai Gow) and American poker has become standard throughout American casinos. Despite the Paris theme, the Manilow Paris does NOT offer European – sometimes referred to as French – roulette, with a single zero on the wheel.
