Railroad Pass became the latest casino in the Henderson area to fold its live table game pit. It occurred earlier in June, according to Las Vegas Advisor. Railroad Pass dealt six-deck 3/2 blackjack, double zero roulette, and craps. The casino had one of the last $5 craps games in the Las Vegas market. Railroad Pass also dealt $5 roulette.

In January, Pass Casino in downtown Henderson removed all its table games. Railroad Pass and Pass Casino have the same owner. Both casinos dealt the same selection of table games.

This was the latest loss of table games in the Henderson and Boulder City area. In December 2022, Club Fortune removed its pit that dealt craps, double-deck blackjack, double zero roulette, and Face Up Pai Gow Poker. It was the last $3 craps game in the market. Club Fortune also had the last $5 pai gow poker game.

This continued a trend that started in 2020. That is when Eastside Cannery and Fiesta Henderson closed and never reopened. Longhorn and Jokers Wild reopened in June 2020 after the COVID shutdown without the live tables each casino closed with three months earlier. In 2019, Arizona Charlie’s Boulder removed its table games from the casino floor. 

Jokers Wild offers electronic tables of blackjack, craps, and roulette. Arizona Charlie’s Boulder and Longhorn did not have electronic table games during our recent visits.
