Casinos in Lake Tahoe

Gambling’s an ancient tradition on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe. The early Washoe Indians loved a good wager as much as today’s visitors.  Gambling has been legal in Nevada on again and off again since the 1930s, so it’s deeply embedded in the culture, and you’ll find lots of places to play games of chance, including the grocery stores.  But the grand casino tradition really began in the early ‘40s started by two men, Raymond Smith who founded Harrods and Bill Harrah of Harrah’s Hotel South Lake Tahoe fame, of course.  These visionary gamers risked it all for big profits, buying land, developing real estate and designing more challenging and interesting ways to risk your money.
Today some of the most exciting headliner entertainment and high roller accommodations and quality restaurants can be found in the Stateline Hotels in Nevada and South Lake Tahoe California Hotels across the stateline. Remember that there is no gaming in California except on Indian Reservations. You can also find action in North Lake Tahoe at the hotels in Crystal Bay and at the Incline Village hotels. There are lots of different size places to go and spend an evening, we are listing the larger venues, where you will sure to have a good time.
