Nevada’s Best Casinos Not In Las Vegas

When most gamblers think of Nevada, they think of Las Vegas. While there are many excellent casinos along the Strip, another place in Nevada to find the best casinos is in Reno. Since the 1930s, Reno has been home to many popular casinos.

The Atlantis Casino opened in 1972 and has more than 1,000 guest rooms and boasts Reno’s only concierge tower. The games on the floor of the Atlantis Casino are more affordable than many others, with a minimum of $3 to $5. The casino’s video poker machines are higher limit games, for those who want to up the ante. The poker room features nine tables of various Texas Hold Em games. Poker tournaments are run daily and begin at 10:00 every morning.

The Bonanza Casino is so small that it doesn’t include a hotel. Players flock to this casino for its affordable table games, with $2 Craps tables and $3 Blackjack tables. There are also many slot machines to choose from. Like the Atlantis Casino, the Bonanza Casino also runs daily poker tournaments.

Boomtown Casino sits away from the other casinos in Reno, for a more secluded experience. Most games at the casino can be played for as little as $5. Gamblers generally go to Boomtown for its Blackjack games. Video Poker and slot machines are also on the casino floor. The casino has a small poker room with five tables mainly devoted to games of Texas Hold Em. Occasionally the casino will run poker tournaments, but not as often as other casinos in Reno.

The Cal-Neva Casino is on the border of California and Nevada. Across the street from the casino is a 200 room hotel where players usually stay during their visit. Cal-Neva is best known for its video poker machines that are said to have loose pay tables, making it popular with some gamblers. The casino’s poker room has five tables for Texas Hold Em Poker. Daily tournaments are run several times a day at the casino.

The Circus Circus Reno Casino is designed to be one of the few family friendly casinos in the area. Families on a budget love the nickel slots and dollar table games. They also enjoy the casino’s six table games. For a cheap buy in, players can participate in poker tournaments daily. The casino also has one of Reno’s biggest sportsbook rooms, with 25 televisions and 80 seats.

For a more upscale experience the Eldorado Hotel and Casino is among Reno’s best. The slot machines range from penny machines to dollar machines. Most table games at Eldorado require a minimum bid of $5 to $10. Its poker room has a dozen tables and some of the tournaments held there are quite large.

Each of these casinos proves that there are options outside of Las Vegas for gambling in Nevada. Since these casinos are off the beaten path they are often a better choice for anyone who wants to avoid Las Vegas crowds.
