Sports book is okay, itís a WH book. They had a couple of $5 double deck BJ, 3:2. I did not play but managed to blow $100 on their VP machine. 9:6 DD and 9:5 on their .25 progressives Food looked okay, prices pretty fair, but I did not eat. I donít think I will ever return. Zero promos for signing up for their players card. One and done for me.
Sounds like an utterly dreadful place, so thanks for the review.Quote: Vegasrider

Wow! You really got my hopes up for just a moment! I am a chip collector, but I only collect chips from casinos where I have played. I keep a list of chips I hope to add to my collection some day.Quote: Vegasrider
... I decided to pay the Cal Neva a visit for the 1st time. ...
One casino that has been on that list for quite a while is the Cal Neva. Except that I want to collect a chip from the Cal Neva Lodge, aka Cal Neva Casino, right on the Cal(ifornia) Neva(da) border in Crystal Bay, not the Club Cal Neva about 40 miles away in Reno.
The Cal Neva Lodge is the place that once belonged to Frank Sinatra. I visited the place back in 2011, but they had no table games in operation and no chips for me to collect. I did collect a chip from Club Cal Neva the very next day.
Back in 2014 in the "Casino Chip of the Day" thread, ChipmanSpiff showed us an old chip from the Cal Neva Lodge in a post right here, along with an interesting write-up on the history. There have been a series of efforts to renovate and re-open the place, under multiple owners. Last I think I read, there was some talk about going with a different name, but I have heard nothing about that place really getting back into business.
Anyway, I had a momentary thrill with the mistaken belief that it was again open and that you had visited there. Sorry to hear about your unpleasant visit to the "Club" in Reno.
The Cal Neva up in Tahoe, Incline Village NV remains boarded up and closed. Iíve actually stayed their back in 2011 ish. It occupies a real nice part of the lake. Itís kind of an eye sore, something needs to be done.
Just drove by there this week and stopped at Crystal Bay. The old Cal Neva has changed hands a few times since closing and seems like everyone has bigger ideas than their wallet. The latest guy ďmayĒ do something with it. He certainly has the Money if they allow him.
When I used to gamble a lot in Tahoe, it was always south shore. It was suggested that I try out the Cal Neva Lodge, but I never did. At that time it had already gone downhill. Let's see what Larry Ellison makes of it.
I think the title of this thread should be changed to Club Cal Neva Reno to avoid confusion with the Cal Neva Lodge in Tahoe.
I think the title of this thread is clearly accurate, it says Reno not Tahoe. No different than Harrahs Reno vs Harrahs Tahoe.
