Golden Gate Casino – Las Vegas’ Humble Beginnings


Recommended Posts

Before Las Vegas became the most popular destination for gamblers, it was a small railroad city used to move goods between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles. John F. Miller would establish a tent hotel in the current downtown area that would later become the first Las Vegas Casino in 1906. This casino would exist until 1909 when Nevada banned gambling.




Once gambling was legalised in 1931 in Nevada, the casino would open once again, allowing players to experience a variety of fun games. Now known as the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, it provides slot games and even a sportsbook. These days, you may find plenty of outstanding local Las Vegas casinos, but it was John F. Miller who invented the first casino in Las Vegas.
