Terrible’s Town Casino is a cozy little affair that has attracted a loyal following of locals who enjoy the community center-like atmosphere.

The casino’s 16-lane bowling alley is a hot-bed of activity, fueled by a bowling league and bargain prices. Open 24 hours, bowlers pay as little as $1 a game (league members), up to a maximum $2.50 per game.

The casino contains 113 slot machines, heavily weighted toward nickel and quarter video poker and keno machines.

The most popular poker games include Deuces Wild, Joker Poker, Double Double Bonus, Triple Play and Five-Hand Poker. Keno players will find a nice mix of games on the IGT Gamemaker machines, including the wildly popular Four Card Keno.

Players will also find the most popular reel machines such as Wheel of Fortune, Double Diamonds and Texas Tea, to name a few.

Like the other popular Henderson casinos, Terrible’s Town has a popular restaurant that serves solid American specialties at ridiculously-low prices.

For instance, patrons can feast on a southern fried chicken dinner for only $4.99, which includes a healthy serving of chicken plus Cajun fries and coleslaw.

Other popular favorites include a Philly cheese steak sandwich with onions, bell peppers, Swiss cheese and mushrooms ($3.79), an Italian meatball sandwich with marinara sauce on a Hoagie roll ($2.99) and a triple-decker clubhouse sandwich with bacon, turkey, lettuce and tomato ($3.79).
