Grand Sierra Reno Table Games (B+)

The Table Games area at the Grand Sierra is large and impressively laid out. Don't let the table count fool you, it feels much larger and most of the tables are open. Everything is spread out well, so you don't have to worry about being crowded in next to someone. It can get full on the weekends, which makes finding a $5 table a little harder. Friendly dealers for the beginners, as well as good rules for the more serious blackjack player.

Silver Legacy Reno Table Games (B+)

The Silver Legacy has a large and comfortable table gaming area. It is done in a modern and bright tan/brown theme that looks very nice. The ceilings are quite high with elegant lighting and chandeliers over the gaming area. The seats are new and comfortable, and the tables are spaced out enough that you won't always be bumping into the table next to you. There are a significant number of Asian-based games if you're looking for something like that.

Peppermill Reno Table Games (B)

The main table games area is located in the low-ceiling area in the central casino. Peak times can get crowded, but there's always a game to be had. Even on a busy Friday night, there were several $5 Blackjack tables with available seats. There are many Blackjack tables, several Craps tables, as well as Roulette, 3-card and 4-card Poker, Pai Gow, Let it Ride, and others. Blackjack rules are fairly normal, including 3:2 payout, split any pair, dealer hits on soft 17. There are different subtle rules for single-deck, double-deck, and shoe-based games.

Harrah's Reno Table Games (B)

Harrah's Reno has a large table games section, and is one of the oldest operating casinos. The area is nicely lit, spacious, and well integrated into the casino area. We've found the dealers to be friendly, and there's always a variety of games being played. The rules for blackjack are not terribly tight or loose, and cater to the player who isn't a complete newbie.

Circus Circus Reno Table Games (B)

The Table games at Circus are located on the lower level in the middle of the gaming floor. There's a variety of games, and several blackjack tables. They have many $5 tables open for the newer player, and Circus advertises that all their payouts are 3:2--just like blackjack should be!

Sands Reno Table Games (C+)

There's only a few tables at the Sands compared to some places, but they're mostly always open and have reasonable minimum bets. The dealers are friendly and the games are fair. Its a comfortable place to sit and play without the intensity and impersonal feel of some places. Great to go if you're just learning, too. More information about the Sands Table Games.

Bonanza Reno Table Games (C)

There were 5 table games at the Bonanza, three blackjack, one three-card poker, and a craps table. The area was clean and comfortable, but obviously very small. Keep in mind that many small local slot-houses (hence the name) don't have any table games at all.

Siena Reno Table Games (No Grade)

Apparently that didn't work too well. As for June 2010, the Siena has closed all table games. In August 2009, the Sienna announced they were converting all their table games to a "Pleasure Pit" style and adding a nightclub to the area. They are reducing their total tables from 10 to 6. A "Pleasure Pit" involves scantily-clad female dealers, well, dealing and occasionally taking a break from dealing to dance on the tables. We'll followup with more detail when this project is completed.
