Casinos in Reno

Casinos in Reno have made “The Biggest Little City in the World” famous across North America as well as other parts of the world.

Reno is the fourth largest city in the State of Nevada – behind Las Vegas, Henderson and Las Vegas North – with over 200 000 inhabitants.

After Nevada legalised casino gambling in 1931 and before Las Vegas came along as the world’s gambling Mecca in the 1950s, Reno enjoyed a position as the gambling capital of the United States, with visitors flocking to the casinos in Reno to enjoy a top-class gambling holiday.

Following the rise of Vegas and the growth of the casino industry in California, many older casinos in Reno were torn down or closed, although casinos in Reno still attract a relatively large number of weekend visitors.

Many of the closed casinos in Reno are being turned into condominiums. The Comstock, for example, has been revamped to house condos known as The Residences at Riverwalk Towers.

Downtown Reno, which used to be home to the city’s many casinos and was the focus for tourists on gambling holidays, is now an area full of nightclubs, bars and restaurants.

The pulse of Reno’s nightlife, downtown is still home to a number of the casinos in Reno, some of which have their own nightclubs and lounges to attract the punters.

Eldorado Hotel Casino boasts Roxy’s, The Brew Brothers and Bubingas, while Harrah’s is home to the stylish Sapphire Lounge.
