I've Got More Winners' Photos!

18 January 2003

The Atlantis Casino Resort in Reno has joined into the fun this week. You can go see the latest winners, photos and all on the Reno Gaming Guide. You can also find photos of winners from the Silver Legacy too... there’s a lot of money being won in Reno these days! I like posting pictures of happy people smiling because they just won a lot of money. I’d like to have a complete gallery of Reno winners online soon... it kind of makes it more "real" when you see how much goes out!

Just in time for the Super Bowl... Club Cal Neva has a new sports grill open... Bulldog’s Sports Grill... decorated with gaming and sports memorabilia, with the games viewable from every angle... offering a signature Bulldog sandwich, a Philly Cheese Steak, and things like garlic fries.... yummm.... sounds like it should be a local favorite... and it’s open 24 hours Monday through Thursday, and 6 AM to 10 PM on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. You can grab breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Bulldog’s.

Getting back to the Atlantis Casino Resort... They are inviting everyone to a free Super Bowl party, with great food specials, giveaways, gaming cash bonuses and the chance to win cash prizes at every quarter in the free Club Paradise football pool. The game will be shown on televisions casino-wide, including three big screens in the Center Stage Cabaret and 12 televisions in the Sportsbook. For more information, you can call 1-800-723-6500.

They aren’t the only "game" in town, others planning Super Bowl parties, as well as other special events, are Circus Circus, Eldorado, Fitzgeralds, John Ascuaga’s Nugget, Rail City, Reno Hilton, and the Silver Legacy. There probably won’t be many places in town that will lack a vantage point for the biggest game of the year. You can check the special section on the Reno Gaming Guide for details about the parties around town. I might note, also premiering is going to be the Bowler’s special section. With the American Bowling Congress’ (ABC) Master’s prize fund of $350,000 with a top prize of $100,000 going on through the 19th, and then the Women’s International Bowling Congress Tournament running from March 20th to July 8th... Reno is once again back in business! There will be lots of specials for bowlers from the casinos in the near future, so stay tuned!

The Siena Hotel Spa Casino is having "LouiSiena’s" all-month-long Mardi Gras Party and Cash Drawings, with $15,000 cash being given away, and you can win a trip for two to New Orleans for the Mardi Gras... also live jazz on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as Red-hot ragin’ Cajun meal deals, and Mardi Gras drink specials. Running until January 31st... so get into the party spirit at the Siena.

I noticed another new slot in my path the other day, "Leprechaun Gold" by WMS... so I stopped, and gave it a shot. It didn’t take long to get to the bonus round, and the graphics were great, wish the casino had left the sound enabled a notch higher, I "think" it had good sound, but the point was, I got some of the "gold" away from the taunting little Leprechaun that was saying I’d never get his gold... It wasn’t a large bonus, but it counted. I gave it a thumbs up, and decided to make a point of giving it another shot next time I passed it.

There’s so much to see and do in the Reno area, it’s truly a blessing, as I get out frequently, and never have to say I’ve seen it or done it all. It’ll be years before I can say I even tried that. Reno is a growing area. Never mind what they say about it being so vulnerable to Indian gaming, it has one thing they don’t, and can’t have for many decades. Reno has history. The area has history... a lot of gaming history happened here. It’s worth seeing, a story worth listening to.

It’s my hope that people reading this will take a moment and consider making that trip to Reno rather than that trip to Las Vegas. You might just be glad that you did.
