Closed Vegas Casino Tour
While this pandemic has been quite a ride for all of us, Las Vegas has had a very interesting journey throughout. In March, 2020 all Nevada casinos were ordered to shut down by Governor Sisolak in a move that was shocking to many. While casinos were allowed to reopen in June of 2020, many never made it back.
Early on in the pandemic i documented what the Strip looked like when everything was shutdown and how things were when they reopened again. I even filmed several “closed casinos” videos with properties like Bally’s, Tropicana, Mirage and Rio all sitting shuttered while their competition had open doors. Thankfully those properties did make it back, however there are still 8 large closed casinos in the Las Vegas area.
All of the Still Closed Vegas Casinos – Full Tour
In this Las Vegas closed casino tour we’ll check out which properties remain closed and why. From local casinos to popular roadside stops, the list of closed Vegas casinos is longer than I would have thought. Check out the video below and I’ll include more information on each of the casinos further down.
Closed Vegas Casinos Featured in this Video
In this Vegas closed casinos video we featured the following properties:
- Palms Resort & Casino – Previously owned by Station Casinos. This property will reopen in late 2021/early 2022 following a sale to the San Manuel tribe
- Fiesta Rancho – This locals casino in North Las Vegas was built by the same family as Palms and remains closed with no opening plans announced
- Texas Station – Sitting across from Fiesta Rancho this property is also owned by Red Rock Resorts and has no planned opening
- Main Street Station – Following an 18 month closure Main Street Station re-opens on September 8, 2021 to join its new neighbor Circa in Downtown Las Vegas
- Buffalo Bill’s – The hotel, casino and rides at Buffalo Bill’s in Primm are closed with no opening date set. Primm Valley and Whiskey Pete’s remain open
- Eastside Cannery – Boyd Gaming owns Eastside Cannery and its open neighbor Sam’s Town. One has to think a sale will happen to allow this relatively new casino to reopen
- Fiesta Henderson – Wasting away in Henderson, there are no announced plans to open Fiesta. One of the casino’s restaurants has relocated permanently to its sister property Sunset Station
