The small "locals" casino at Stateline, Nevada has permanently closed. They touted the "longest craps table in Tahoe" and no resort fees.

Just last year I visited for the first time. It's the kind of small casino that I really like: a mix of old and new slots/video poker, craps, blackjack, and a cozy restaurant with great food. They also had some goofy hourly promotion for players. They had a small poker room that didn't seem to have consistent hours. I'll miss them!

Here's their email that I received today:

Dear <first name>,

After 35 years of being a source of entertainment for thousands of guests, we are permanently closing our doors. This includes all areas of our business including our casino, restaurant, and hotel.

This decision was not made lightly. We hoped that we would be able to resume operations once this COVID-19 situation improved. However, that’s just not in the cards for us.

We were able to stay open for 35 years because of our tremendous staff, loyal guests, and a supportive community. The relationships we have created with our guests are just incredible!

Although this is unexpected news, we’d love to hear any Lakeside memories you’d like to share by replying to this email. We’ll post them on our website for all to read.

In the coming days, please check the Lakeside Closure page of our website for information on how to cash in slot tickets and/or table games chips that you may have. We will continue to update that page with any related information we can share with you.

Whenever you think of us, we hope you’ll think fondly of the good times we had together!

Sad, but seemed to be genuinely heartfelt. Very sad. Thanks for posting this.
