     History
    Opened in 1974 (exact date pending with further research) Closed on January 3rd 2002.

    Was considered a locals casino, won a Review Journal "Best Of" Award in 1996 for best place to play video poker.

    Casino weakened in the 1990's, due to more and more "local's themed" casinos opening, and more casinos on and off the strip realizing they need to cater to locals also.
