The place looks closed so I never bothered to check in. Did they slip up and forget to load up on their cash reserves of $100 for the day?

I honestly didn't even know this place existed and I live maybe 1.5 miles away :)

Well, that is the purpose of this board, so good luck. Its a sole proprietorship casino I think ... anyone want to buy the license?
Or visit some slot machines for the last time?
Or just see the place before Harrah's buys it out for a song and a cigar.

Used to live real close to there (on Russel & Boulder). I know some people who kinda go there sometimes (or I think at least?), but I never bothered. I might scope it out sometime.

But the slots pay in coins if anybody likes that.

With the owner being 83, I doubt she can test slot machines any too well. Maybe its a gold mine in the rough or something.

Its a slots only license, I think, but we can hire Pai Gow Dan out of retirement to run the place if we buy it. The license has got to be worth something, it sounds like the actual casino is a dump.

That 4/3/14 NGC list of licensees that I mentioned around here recently says that Klondike Sunset, LLC -- dba Klondike Sunset Casino -- has a full, nonrestricted license. Klondike Sunset, LLC is owned 100% by the Woodrum Gaming Trust, with John G. Woodrum and Ellen Marie Woodrum as the two trustee-beneficiaries and John as Manager.

I assume that is the casino being discussed here. It's at 444 W. Sunset Rd. in Henderson.

I have a souvenir $1 chip from there, which is really a slot token that I got playing blackjack there. I posted that token in the Casino Chip of the Day thread and told a little info about the ownership and the former Klondike on S. Las Vegas Blvd.

So if it is non restricted they can have more slots if they want and they can have all table games that they choose to pay for.

Its simply they are sitting on the license rather than the property itself.

Is the license restricted to that 444 W Sunset in Hendertucky?

I wish I had the money to buy it. I could probably find a few winos I could scrub up and have them sign affidavits to my good moral character.

If you drive by it looks closed. Long ago, before Sunset Station opened and even for a few years after. it was a busy little place. I didn't think it was called Klondike Sunset then, I thought it was Bill's or Dave's Sunset, something like that. They had good food and occasionally good promotions. They gave away them bonus bucks for hitting 4oak and slot wins. It was easy to get comps at the place. I wonder if Dotty's will be a contender ( god I hate dotty's) and gut it, too big for them?

If you want to see a spectacle go to Opera house casino on friday/Saturday night's they turn the place into a Mexican dace hall with a DJ and everything. People dance in the middle of the casino while the music is blasting. Rough place

I could only speculate, since I don't know the rules or how they are enforced. I assume that the Klondike Sunset is grandfathered for the unrestricted license, avoiding the requirement to have a sizable hotel on the premises. I don't know whether the owner could move the casino operations to a new location without having to build a hotel. I also don't know the relative difficulty between getting approved to buy a casino with an unrestricted license vs. getting approved for a new unrestricted license.

My visit to Klondike Sunset was much like what has been described by others. It was pretty creepy. Like walking into an Edward Hopper painting. Everything's a little hazy, everyone's a little sad...
