Famous Sign October 2007
Originally opened as the “The Casino” in 1976 then renamed Bingo Palace in 1977. It was remodeled in 1984 and became Palace Station with a railroad theme. Pictures of old trains and the iconic sign towered in the front. It is most famous for the robbery of O.J. Simpson memorabilia in 2007. I first stayed at The Palace Station in the late 80’s. It was always and still is a great place to stay off the strip. In 2018 they sadly changed the railroad theme to a modern one and removed the giant Palace Station sign. I was there when the crane was taking the sign down.
They still have better video poker and video keno odds then the strip casinos. They have nice rooms with free parking and a shuttle to the strip. You don’t have to walk a mile from your room to the casino like you do on the strip. They have added more restaurants, a new pool, more bars , movie theaters and completely remodeled the Casino and sports book. The address is 2411 W. Sahara Ave. just West of Interstate 15.
