The hotel has 1,053 rooms divided between two towers: a large 26-story tower, Sedona, and a smaller 6-story tower, Santa Fe. The property has a casino with 57,457 sq ft (5,337.9 m2)of gaming space. There is also a pool and spa, as well as several restaurants.


The Edgewater opened in 1981. It initially ran into licensing difficulties when the Nevada Gaming Control Board raised concerns about alleged connections between some partners in the ownership group and members of the Detroit crime family; the rest of the group was forced to buy out their shares.

Circus Circus Enterprises bought the Edgewater in 1983 for $17 million.

Circus Circus was later renamed as Mandalay Resort Group, and was then acquired in 2005 by MGM Mirage. In June 2007, MGM Mirage sold the Edgewater and the Colorado Belle to a partnership of Anthony Marnell III and Sher Gaming for a total of $200 million.

On February 3, 2010, a speeding vehicle crashed into the Edgewater Casino’s south entrance, destroying six banks slot machines and killing two casino patrons and injuring eight. Investigators said that the crash was caused by the driver having a “medical episode”.

In July 2018, Golden Entertainment agreed to buy the Edgewater and the Colorado Belle from Marnell and Sher for a total price between $168 and $190 million.



The Edgewater has 57,457 square feet (5,337.9 m2) of gaming space with 755 slot machines, 20 table games, and a race and sports book (Laughlin’s largest). The casino has a players’ club program that is shared with the Colorado Belle, the Access Player’s Club.
