If Wildfire gaming customers didn’t know that Station Casinos was behind their local slot spot, they will know now.
The new Wildfire casino, at 2700 E. Fremont St., opens at noon Friday — just in time for Super Bowl LVII — and ushers in a new chapter for the neighborhood casino brand.
The 21,000-square-foot casino with about 200 slot machines, bar-top and electronic table games has an updated look with modern designs and amenities compared to what’s expected in a Wildfire, said General Manager Jonathan Veltri. For instance, TVs are visible from anywhere on the slot floor and the bar has 16 stacked 65-inch TVs and a sports betting ticker running above it.
“It’s really the focal point of the property,” Veltri told the Review-Journal during a preview tour Tuesday. “It’s very well lit, almost looks like a piece of artwork with the TVs and the sports ticker on top.”
