Potential Future Sites For Station Casinos

Station Casinos Logo

Station Casinos owns a lot of land all over Las Vegas. Eventually they’ll use at least one of these plots of land to build to build a new casino.

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal these are areas of land Station Casinos will still own to develop a casino.

  • 70 acre site near the intersection of Durango Road and the 215 Beltway

  • 58 acres near the intersection of Flamingo Road and the 215 Beltway

  • 45 acres on Via Inspirada near Bicentennial Parkway in Henderson

  • 30 acres at the intersection of Boulder Highway and Oakey Boulevard

  • 76 acres adjacent to the Wild Wild West, which is on a 20-acre site near Tropicana Boulevard and I-15.

There are no plans to develop a new casino or to expand the Wild Wild West property but it’s interesting to see that Station Casinos has a good amount of land all over Vegas. Despite possible traffic congestion in some of the areas each location is fairly easily accessible.

Station Casinos is selling land that they own that’s south of South Point. That’s farther away from the Vegas Strip than South Point and towards California. I live on the opposite side of Vegas and think that this land would better used for a mall than a casino (since I’ll never go out there).

If I had to choose the location of a new project I would like to see Wild Wild West expanded. The location would be good for tourists and accessible for locals who want to be near the Vegas Strip.

Casino Confidential Brings Binions To TV

Binions Downtown Las Vegas On TLC

Green Valley Ranch, Golden Nugget and South Point have been backdrop for TV shows in the past. Reality shows based inside casinos are awesome. They may not be good but they’re awesome.

TLC is bringing a new Las Vegas TV show set in a casino beginning April 4 with “Casino Confidential“. “Casino Confidential” is based on what happens with the staff at Binions Casino. Here’s what TLC says about the show:

Unruly high rollers, all-night party goers, and bachelor parties gone rogue; that’s Casino Confidential. For the staff at Las Vegas’ legendary Binion’s Casino, it’s all in a day’s work to make sure everything runs smoothly. In this high octane and no holds barred docu-soap all is exposed. With the extraordinary events and crazy characters that descend on the hottest party venue in Sin City.

The trailer for “Casino Confidential” doesn’t tell much more about the show but at least based in a casino and it’s not “Sin City Rules“. The downtown Vegas element should make for fun TV. Unfortunately I don’t appear in “Casino Confidential”. Regardless, my TiVo is set!
