The Becker name is well-known in Las Vegas for business and residential development for over 50 years. Now, it’s also a brand name for hospitality. Becker Gaming owns and operates three properties in Las Vegas: Charlie’s Lakeside, Restaurant & Lounge, Charlie’s Down Under Bar & Grill, and Cariba Charlie’s Bar. They all strive to be the best when it comes to gaming, dining or just having fun.
Depending on which Becker location you choose, you can enjoy everything from 24 hour breakfasts to bar food, sandwiches, fresh grilled burgers or fine dining. Charlie’s Lakeside is located at 8603 West Sahara Avenue on the corner of Durango Drive.
They have a full service restaurant offering all of the aforementioned plus nightly specials including Meatloaf (Mondays, $11) Pot Roast (Wednesdays, $12) Surf & Turf (Thursdays, $14) and Prime Rib (Fridays and Saturdays $12-$14.) On Easter Sunday, April 1, breakfast specials include Homemade Corned Beef Hash with hash browns and eggs ($10) or Crab Cake Benedict served with hash browns ($11.)
The Easter dinner special will be Baked Ham and Au Gratin Potatoes served with vegetables ($12). They offer over 30 different beers at the bar. Charlie’s Lakeside also has private meeting space available set off the main floor.
All three locations offer gaming. There are 35 machines at Charlie’s Lakeside and Charlie’s Down Under, and 15 machines at Cariba Charlie’s. Becker Gaming Players Club cards reward players with cash redemption and participation in some of the best local bar gaming promotions in Las Vegas. (Note: Cards are not linked and each property issues their own separate club cards for use at that property only.)
The machines at Lakeside offer a variety of games including up to 12 slot and 12 video poker choices on many of their machines, plus keno and blackjack. Denominations range from 20 cents to $5.
Point earning is based on game type and denomination played, so a precise coin-in count can’t be given, but we do know 100 points equal $1 (minimum cash-out amount) in real cash back and therefore 1,000 points equal $10. Points can be redeemed for cash or used as free slot play on the machines.
Currently, Lakeside is running a March Madness squares promotion where one lucky player will win $400 on NCAA Championship Game Day. Other promotions include 3x points on all machines on Easter Sunday.
Lakeside also holds drawings every night starting out at $300. Players earn one drawing for every four of a kind they hit. If the winner is present for the nightly drawing they take home the cash. If they are not present, $100 is added to the next night’s drawing pot and continues on until a winner is present.
