The Pass Casino to celebrate grand opening in April

10 March 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Pass Casino, formerly the Eldorado will again light up Water Street as it opens, subject to Gaming Commission approval, at 7 p.m. on 1 April 2021. The former Eldorado Casino was sold to DeSimone Gaming by Boyd Gaming in December, 2020. The property has been completely reimagined with increased gaming, dining and entertainment options.

The casino joins the Railroad Pass in DeSimone’s gaming portfolio. Longtime Henderson developer and sole owner, Joe DeSimone, has anticipated renewed interest in the historic property due to both the public and private investments that have been made in downtown Henderson and on Water Street. Additionally, he says “Our Railroad Pass customers will enjoy the benefits of a linked Player’s Club, giving them the opportunity to accrue and use their points at either property.” A shuttle will run between the two casinos seven days a week for customers’ convenience.

The iconic building’s reopening represents nearly 100 new jobs for Henderson, with many former employees returning. Among the enhancements to the gaming floor will be live games along with over 350 slot machines. Emilia’s Cafe, named for DeSimone’s daughter, will offer upgraded 24 hour dining. Fine dining will be available at Ristorante Italiano, Thursday through Sunday evenings. The Pass Bar and Silver Bar complete the new food and beverage options.

“We expect the Pass to become an entertainment destination for Henderson residents,” says DeSimone. “Our unique venues and customer service will keep bringing them back!”
