Las Vegas History Series: Fiesta Rancho Hotel and Casino

Las Vegas History Series: Fiesta Rancho Hotel and Casino

This week, we are going to continue our Las Vegas History Series by focusing on the Fiesta/Fiesta Rancho Hotel and Casino.

In Las Vegas history, the Fiesta is the first casino the Maloof family-owned. It also is the first hotel/casino in North Las Vegas. George Maloof Jr. was the person who had the idea for the family to have a casino in Las Vegas. He is the former owner of the Sacramento Kings and Monarchs.

For the Fiesta, the idea was to put a casino away from the Las Vegas Strip near neighborhoods that had higher income levels and property values. The cost of the Fiesta was somewhere between 25 to 35 million dollars. It opened on December 14, 1994. The theme for the resort was Mexican.

On the gaming front, one of the marketing goals was to appeal to video poker players. George Maloof Jr. was known to spend time on the casino floor so he could get customer feedback. One of the additional addons was that the Fiesta has a drive-thru sportsbook. It is the only one in Las Vegas.

In 2000, it also became the first casino in Las Vegas to introduce coinless slot machines. In 2000, the Maloofs sold the Fiesta to the Fertita family. George Maloof Jr. used the proceeds from that sale to build the Palms Resort Casino. In 2001, the name of the casino and resort was changed to the Fiesta Rancho.

Today, it is a Station Casinos property. There has been talk that the resort and casino will end up getting sold soon. We shall see.

For the chip collectors, Fiesta is known to have many commemorative chips and a variety of others. You can find our collection below to purchase from there. You can purchase each chip by clicking the picture:

Spinettis Roulette Chips: New Collection Online

Spinettis Roulette Chips: New Collection Online

Aside from casino chips that have denominations on them, roulette chips are also part of the collecting market. This weekend, we are featuring some of our favorite roulette chips below you can purchase.  Some of these we just added to the website as well. Some are also priced as low as $5.

 Roulette chips are unique because they do not have a denomination value on them. However, each roulette chip is worth $1. Roulette chips usually have either a number or a letter on them. This identification on the chip is used to track the roulette chip to a specific gaming table. At that roulette table, all the colors will have the same number or letter on them. Each person is given a different chip color to wager with.

Did you know that adding up all the roulette wheel numbers equals to a grand total of 666?  Also, roulette actually comes from the French world “small wheel”. If you were to spin the roulette wheel 10 times, there’s only a 1 in 1024 chance it would be the same color 10 times in a row. Finally, 17 is the most common number wagered in the game of roulette.

In Las Vegas, there are all levels of roulette wagering. At the El Cortez Hotel and Casino in Downtown Las Vegas, they have had 50 cent roulette tables with a minimum bet of $5 per spin. So, you must bet 10 numbers on the board. At the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino, which is just west of the Las Vegas Strip, you only have to bet a minimum of $3 on three numbers per spin.

If you want single zero roulette, in the past, the Cromwell has been one of the best options for that kind of wagering. However, the minimum bet is $25.

Below you will find some of our favorite roulette chips for sale:

Las Vegas History Series: Gold Spike Hotel and Casino

Las Vegas History Series: Gold Spike Hotel and Casino

From 1985 to 2013, Gold Spike Hotel and Casino was known as an economical destination to stay at in Downtown Las Vegas. Visitors could stay minutes from such historic hotels and casinos including the Golden Nugget, Binion’s and Four Queens on Fremont Street.

From 1983 to 2002, the famous casino pioneer Jackie Gaughan was the owner of the Gold Spike. Originally, the place was called Rendezvous, which we talked about in our Las Vegas History Series a few weeks back.

In 2002, Barrick Game purchased Gold Spike from Mr. Gaughan. That deal was for 82 million dollars and included a four-property deal that consisted of the Gold Spike, The Plaza, Las Vegas Club and The Western.

In 2008, The Siegel Group acquired Gold Spike and renovated the entire property. The plan was to make it a very modern boutique hotel. By 2013, Tony Hsieh of Zappos acquired the debt from the Gold Spike and used it as one of the signature properties of the Downtown Project.

Casino gaming ended at Gold Spike in 2013. The casino floor became a bar and lounge. Today, Gold Spike is considered to be a Downtown Las Vegas entertainment venue. 

The gaming during Gold Spike’s existence I could find included slot machines, blackjack, bingo, roulette, and keno. You can see a picture of the place today below:

This weekend, we have put our entire collection of Gold Spike casino chips on our website for purchase. There are some very cool casino chips. You can purchase each one clicking the picture below:
