“making history since 1951”
Binion's has been making Las Vegas history since 1951 when Texas gambler, Benny Binion, bought the property at 128 Fremont Street. Benny was passionate about giving players excitement, good odds and friendly service, or as he would say - Good Food. Good Whiskey. Good Gamble. When Benny introduced the Horseshoe Club to the "Glitter Gulch" of downtown Las Vegas, a legacy was born. The Horseshoe Club became the first real gambling hall and saloon in Las Vegas and was soon recognized as the place to go for high roller action and generous comps for all players. While the nostalgic personality of the Horseshoe Club remained the same throughout the years, the property grew in both size and scope when in 1960, Benny purchased the neighboring Boulder Club. In 1988, Benny's sons purchased The Mint Hotel to double the size of the property that today, covers an entire block of Fremont Street as Binion's Gambling Hall & Hotel. Benny Binion was a true innovator who understood the wants and needs of downtown Las Vegas visitors: offering a better deal for their money and an experience like no other. Benny pioneered Las Vegas-style customer service installing carpet and air conditioning for the comfort of his players at a time when neither was standard. In addition, he was the first casino owner to provide transportation for his players to and from the airport. In 1970, what began as an intimate poker game with 10 of Benny's friends evolved into the World Series of Poker that today, is one of the largest and most prestigious poker tournaments in the world. Although the World Series of Poker no longer occurs at the property, Binion's is still recognized among poker enthusiasts as the place that made poker famous. Las Vegas visitors and locals alike know Binion's Hall of Fame Poker Room is the ultimate test of their playing skills. Though downtown Las Vegas has evolved since the days of Benny Binion, Benny's enthusiasm still remains at the historic casino and has been picked up by the current owner, TLC Casino Enterprises, that purchased the property in March 2008. In keeping with the storied tradition of the Binion's legacy, the beloved $1 Million Dollar Display is back in a pyramid design of acrylic boxes set up on a poker table. Binion's Gambling Hall & Hotel is continuing to making things great for you!
