Since opening its doors in 1951, Binion’s Gambling Hall has been a fixture of the Las Vegas gaming scene. The Fremont Street casino was originally a gambling hall and hotel, but the hotel closed back in 2009. Even without the rooms, thousands of gamers and thrill-seekers continue to flock to Binion’s.
Binion’s has gone through many changes in its 66 years of existence. Locals used to know this casino as Binion’s Horseshoe in the 1970’s – today, it is simply Binion’s Gambling Hall. Recent renovations have altered the look of Binion’s drastically, but it retained a lot of its old school appeal. The $1 million floor display has resurfaced as a major photo attraction. Brand new carpeting and gaming features have made their way inside Binion’s as well.
Gaming fans will be more than satisfied after a trip to Binion’s. A plethora of table games and slots are always within reach. Its sports book is one of the top gambling spots in old Vegas. The Hall of Fame Poker Room is one of the main attractions for tourists looking to learn about the history of America’s Playground. Entertainment is offered nightly thanks to a unique hypnosis show that is quickly becoming a favorite on the strip.
In the summer of 2016, Binion’s Gambling Hall celebrated its 65th anniversary. The event was celebrated with giveaways and food specials for loyal patrons. Binion’s first opened as a world-class casino and hotel, premiering to rave reviews from tourists and locals alike. In 1970, Binion’s hosted the very first World Series of Poker tournament. The event has since become a staple in sin city. But, economic hardship hit the resort hard in the past twenty years. The hotel was forced to close and the casino struggled to stay competitive with the booming Vegas strip offerings. After its recent purchase of the gambling hall, TLC Casino Enterprises has breathed life into Fremont attraction. Binion’s continues to remain popular with Vegas visitors to this day.
