Published on: 08/08/2016

The city of Reno is located in the U.S. State of Nevada, close to the borders of California. Reno is often referred to as “The Biggest Little City in the World” due to its lively gambling and recreational scene which first began in the early 1930’s. The streets are adorned with bright neon garlands which are almost as extravagant as the lights of the famous Las Vegas strip or New York’s Time Square. Nestled amongst some of the biggest and most famous casinos in the world, the city’s local gambling halls exude a warm and friendly vibe. Sports betting, electronic games of chance and live dealer games tables are all legal in Reno. Some staggering statistics show that in 2012, gambling wins in the city and the encompassing Washoe County area amounted to the sum of roughly $735.7 million, the majority of which came from slot machine success. An example of one of Reno’s larger venues is the Boomtown Casino & Hotel. Its floor space of 39,650 square feet houses 600 gaming machines and 14 games tables, which are available for play round the clock. The 318-room hotel also facilitates an RV park, three bars and four restaurants.

The Atlantis Casino Resort & Spa is a vast establishment, with 61,000 square feet of floor space for its 1,500 slot machines, 50 gaming tables and numerous restaurants. The Peppermill Resort Spa Casino houses the largest concentration of electronic games, table games, restaurants, bars and hotel rooms. Likewise, the Silver Legacy Resort Casino packs as punch for size. The 24/7 venue offers over a 1000 games machines, 67 table games, six restaurants, bars and 1,720 hotel rooms. Nearby, the Eldorado Hotel & Casino has enough floor space to accommodate more than a thousand gaming machines, 58 games tables, multiple restaurants and 816 hotel rooms.

Other major international gambling names which are located in Reno include the Sands Regency Casino Hotel, Harrah’s Casino Hotel and Circus Circus. All of these properties have vast floor spaces, housing games machines and tables, bars, restaurants and numerous guest rooms.

Reno’s community outwardly supports the locally grown gambling businesses, which include popular venues such as the Bonanza Casino, the Diamonds Casino, the Nugget, the Grand Sierra, the Nugget and the Gold Dust West.

Featuring 80,000 square feet of gaming space, 849 games machines, 41 games tables, 181 hotel rooms and half a dozen restaurants, the West Cal-Neva Hotel Casino is another favourite of the locals. The city has a profusion of fully-licensed slot machines, and they can even be found inside the supermarkets, petrol stations and corner shops. The locals have a humorous saying that a “one-armed bandit” loiters in every street. Sak´n´Save, Sierra Gold Tavern, Sierra Junction, Scolari’s Food & Drug Company and Sparkey’s Bar are just a few establishments which provide slots plus various other games of chance. The Gold´n´Silver Inn Restaurant also facilitates almost 30 slot gaming machines. Even Reno’s Airport takes advantage of its inbound and outbound travellers, tempting people with its Tahoe International Airport slots area. The airport’s large gaming space equates to some 1,500 square feet, room enough for 210 slot machines and the Brew’s Brothers Restaurant. The gambling facilities are open for play every day from 5am until 11pm while scheduled flights are in operation.
