Don’t let the nondescript pink stucco exterior deceive you. Inside the Rainbow Club players find a fast-paced casino with nearly 500 slot and video machines.

Rounding out the cluster of casinos in downtown Henderson, the sprawling casino is like a forest of electronic games, from the older coin-dumping keno machines to the latest, touch-screen multi-denominational marvels.

The mix of games is especially attractive to those locals who enjoy video poker because nearly every type of machine is represented: Bonus Poker, Bonus Deluxe, Double Bonus, Triple Bonus, Multi-Poker, Powerhouse Poker, Deuces Wild and Loose Deuces, to name a few.

Slot players won’t sit idly with all the Wheel of Fortune, Double Diamond and Five Times Pay machines around, and there’s an entire room filled with video keno machines. The latest games are always being added, including late arrivals such as Pharaoh’s Fortune, Hex Breaker, Benny Big Game, Monster Mansion, Ghost Island, That Girl and Spin Poker.

Also a hit with the patrons who pack the casino are twice-weekly cash drawings plus vacation giveaways to the casino’s sister resort, the Peppermill in Reno. Seasonal giveaways include Cash Giveaways, Silk Jacket Giveaways, The Great Pumpkin Giveaway and Santa’s Surprise Giveaway.

The 24-hour restaurant is like a pot of gold at the Rainbow Club because of its good food, generous portions and bargain prices. Some of the chef’s specialties include chicken fried steak, liver and onions, golden fried shrimp, New York steak, chicken cordon bleu and prime rib ($7.75 regular cut, $10.25 thick cut). You can save even more with Sunday’s early dinner specials (served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.), which are frequently priced from $3.75 to $5.95, and often include main courses such as chicken teriyaki, beef tips, stuffed chicken breast and stuffed pork chops.
