Atlantis Reno Slot Machines (A-)
The Atlantis has a large variety of newer slot machines. They generally keep a fresh set of games, with the newer games easily available. There's a variety of video poker, with most Jacks or Better set at 8/5 and some at 9/6. Virtually all machines are both TITO and accept your player's card. Slots over Virginia Street near the Oyster Bar are non-smoking.
Peppermill Reno Slot Machines (B+)
The slots are sprinkled all around the gaming Peppermill's main area. They have mostly modern machines, all TITO (ticket-in, ticket-out). There are a significant number of video poker machines, with most Jacks-or-Better payouts at 9-6 for $0.25 bets or more, but dropping to as low as 8-5 for $0.05. Many machines are the cartoon multi-reel (such as Frog Prince, LobsterMania, Hexbreaker). There were no IGT progressives, such as Wheel-of-Fortune, or Megabucks. The chairs are comfy, and the cocktail service is very friendly and fast.
Grand Sierra Reno Slot Machines (B+)
GSR has a good selection of newer slots. The floor is well-spaced out, and there's good video poker. We've found ourselves playing 9-6 video poker here while waiting for friends or dinner or whatnot. There's a good mix of slots, including traditional reels, lots of video poker, newer games, and lots of the state-wide progressives, including Monopoly and a few others. Drinks are served fast and cold. (be sure to tip your drink girl!)
Silver Legacy Reno Slot Machines (B+)
The Silver Legacy slot floor is mostly located on the lower level, and has approximately 780 reel slots, 360 video slots, 350 video poker machines, and high-limit area. Lots of new fresh games, and if you look around you'll find a few classics. There are some games on the upper level near the dining areas, also. The video poker Jacks-or-Better at $0.25 was set at a 9-6 payout, which is nice to see. Unfortunately, our $21 at a Wheel-of-Fortune machine didn't get us a single spin.
Baldini's Reno Slot Machines (B)
Baldini's has just under 500 slot machines. Most everything is TITO, and the machines are from a variety of manufacturers. Since its a local's joint, we seem to be able to get good playtime from our $20.
Cal Neva Reno Slot Machines (B)
The Club Cal Neva has a surprisingly large slot floor, and games spread out on both the upper and lower levels, as well as the bridge to the parking garage. The focus on local players gives lots of penny machines, lower but frequent jackpots, and friendly service. More information about the Cal Neva Slot Machines.
Circus Circus Reno Slot Machines (B)
Circus has a wide variety of newer slot machines, mostly from IGT. They do have other game manufacturers on the floor if you like variety, too. There are some progressives, as well as a variety of video poker. The floor feels larger than the 900 machines they say they have. The low ceilings of the lower level do give Circus a slightly older and different feel.
Eldorado Reno Slot Machines (B-)
The Eldorado is the largest slot floor of any casino in Reno at 2000 slots. Although, to be honest, it doesn't feel that big. There's a mix of older games as well as newer games. Some banks of slots can be tight and too close to other people, while others make you feel like you're sitting too far out in the open.
Tamarack Reno Slot Machines (B-)
The Tamarack is a relatively new building, and as a result, the entire slot floor is also new. There are plenty of newer machines. They didn't cram the machines too tightly together, which means there's plenty of room to walk around and not bump into people. Video Poker odds for Jacks-or-Better were 9-6 on a $0.25 bet, but dropped to a don't-bother-playing 8-5 on $0.05.
Siena Reno Slot Machines (B-)
The slot floor at the Siena is CLOSED as of October 2010 with no plans to reopen. The Siena slot floor has a variety of newer games. Some of the slot area is located in a low-ceiling area near the bar, and a large portion of the slot area is in the main two-story open-area section.
Bonanza Reno Slot Machines (B-)
All the machines at the Bonanza were very new and clean, including several progressive machines as well. There was a solid mix of video poker, but we were disappointed to find 9/6 odds only at $1 bets, many had 8/5 odds at $0.05, and a few machines were even 7/5. We did find a lucky streak on a Red, White, and Blue three-reel slots, which always makes for a fun time!
Harrah's Reno Slot Machines (C+)
Harrah's slot floor is spread out through the property. They have a variety of newer games, such as Star Trek, newer Monopoly-themed games, and others, as well as classic 3-wheel games. There's a few half-floor level changes, and everything is tied to their Total Rewards program. We've played here a few times, and honestly seem to go through our gaming budget pretty quick without winning. We observed the $0.25 Jack-or-Better odds to be 8-5, and there are plenty of 9-6 machines in Reno that make an 8-5 skippable.
Boomtown Reno Slot Machines (C+)
Boomtown's slot floor is wide and spread out, its a great place if you want more space and don't like the crowded feeling of many other floors. More information about the Boomtown Slot Machines.
Nugget Reno Slot Machines (C)
The slot floor at the Nugget is very spaced out, and winds its way around the main casino floor. Unfortunately, the decor is dated, and many of the games are older and showing their age. More information about the Nugget Slot Machines.
Sands Reno Slot Machines (C)
The Sand's slot floor is split up in two areas, the larger area is wrapped around the table games, and the smaller area is over by the hotel check-in and stage. They have a mix of newer games and traditional games. The floor isn't fancy, but the drinks come quickly. What we like about playing at the Sands is that we usually win a little bit!
