Station Casinos Plans to Launch a Wildfire Casino in Las Vegas

Station Casinos is planning to open a new Wildfire Casino in Las Vegas next year. It will have 21,000 square feet of floor space and at 2700 Fremont St, near Charleston Blvd.

Still, the casino will have 200 modern and famous slot machines, electronic table games, and bar-top gaming. The Wildfire Casino will have an STN sportsbook that will air prime sports. Besides, Tacos El Pastor and IHOP will open on its premises.

Contractors installed casino signage outside the building on Tuesday as Stations Casinos intend to launch it in February. Wildfire Gaming General Manager and Vice President said in a statement that the casino, just like other Wildfire properties, will benefit the neighborhood. It will have a calm and secure environment that will improve players' gaming experience.

Other Station Casinos' Projects

The Las Vegas Planning Commission approved Station Casinos' proposal in September to construct a gaming venue in the Northwest Valley. It will be a 705,000-square-foot resort located near Losee and 215.

The Losee Station will have 600 rooms, restaurants, movie theaters, and other amenities. Station Casinos is constructing another resort in Southwest Valley called Station Durango.

The $750 million project comprises an 80,000 square feet casino having 46 table games and 2,000 slot machines. It will have a retail bookmaker, four beverage and food facilities, a 200-room hotel, a lawn, a convention and meetings center, and a swimming pool.

Red Rock Resorts, Station Casinos' parent company, announced in August that it will close Wild Wild West Casino, which is on 20 acres near Tropicana Boulevard and Interstate 15's intersection. The company added that it will demolish the property and combine its land with an adjacent 80-acre parcel that it owns and has allocated another project.

The Demolition of Three Northern Nevada Casinos

Station Casinos declared in July that it will bring down three Northern Nevada casinos, sell the land and reinvest to widen its portfolio. They include Fiesta Henderson, Fiesta Rancho, and Texas Station. They have never reopened after the Coronavirus pandemic.

The company began demolishing Fiesta Henderson and Texas Station in September. It will soon tear down Fiesta Rancho, but it hasn't given the exact date. Also, Wild Wild West Casino won't last for long.

Station bought 126- acres for $172 million South of Las Vegas and off Cactus Avenue. The property is south of its 56-acre land.

Station Casinos Plans of Its Portfolio

Station Casinos is determined to double its presence in Vegas by 2030. The current land acquisition, demolition of properties, and ongoing projects are part of its ambition.

Frank Fertitta III, Station Casinos CEO, announced the plan in the second-quarter earnings discussion. The gaming company previously held huge tracts of land in gaming zones and identified fast-growing regions to buy more land.

Scott Kreeger, Red Rock Resorts President, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal reporters that his company is popular in Las Vegas. He believes that it will be prudent to invest in the region up to 2030.
