Nestled between the giants along the Colorado River in Laughlin is a little tavern known to locals as the Regency Casino – the third oldest casino in the Nevada city.
They offer a fun gaming atmosphere with slots, old fashioned reels, newer video machines, all kinds of video poker, and keno. The casino’s 5,000 square foot gaming space features 75 gaming machines. The property has one restaurant, a bar and a gift shop.
Daniel’s Restaurant on the River serves food at a good price with a view of the Colorado. Daniel’s is family operated and always serves fresh food with generous portions. Weekly specials include Taco Tuesday, featuring a huge selection of tacos and other Mexican food.
Burger Wednesday offers 50 percent off all handmade gourmet burgers with 19 flavors all cooked to order. All-you-can-eat fish, fries, and homemade coleslaw for $10.99 runs every Friday.
The bar has generous drink specials (all shots poured to at least 1.25 oz,) and claims to provide the “coldest beer on the River cooled to 34°F.” Large HDTV’s behind the bar are perfect for any sporting event. They run beer specials and giveaways during every NFL, college football game and NASCAR race, sponsored by Anheuser Busch.
Guests can also play billiards on three new tournament size Diamond tables. Free live music and entertainment are featured in the casino lounge every weekend.
“This, That, and the Udder,” the Regency’s gift shop and convenience store, has a wide variety of gifts and apparel. The gift shop sells ice, beer, adult and non-alcoholic beverages, snacks, sunscreen, water apparel, and a wide variety of convenience items and sundries, all at very competitive prices.
They also feature a selection of glass work, fun signs, wine bottle displays and toppers, decorations, candles, jewelry, apparel, accessories, and many other items.
While not having a slot club, they are always running fun promotions on video poker including a suited royal progressive on the bartops that a lot of locals enjoy, as well as keno and other games.
The newest promotion is a four of a kind card elimination called “Last Card Standing.” It consists of 13 cards, 2 through A, that are posted on the wall behind the bar. As players hit a four-of-a-kind, that card will be removed from the wall upon verification by a bartender. The player hitting the final four of a kind on the wall receives a bonus payout.
There is also a “Card of the Month” promotion. Hit four-of-a-kind in the current card of the month on a video poker game to instantly win extra cash. Call a Regency Casino bartender or manager over to your machine to verify the four-of-a-kind and receive a special promotional payout on the spot. Cash awards are $20 for playing max bet on $0.25, $40 with max coin on $0.50, and $60 with max coin on $1.
In addition, if you miss a natural royal flush by one card, you are eligible to be entered into the monthly drawing. Have a bartender or manager verify your four-to-the-royal to have your name entered to win $100.
The drawing is held on the first of the month. If the prize is not claimed within seven days it will roll over to the next month’s drawing. A bartender or manager can assist with more information and official rules.
Regency Casino is located at 1950 S. Casino Drive. For more information, call 702-299-1220 or visit online at www.regencylaughlin.com.
