New downtown Las Vegas casino sets opening date

Updated January 30, 2023 - 8:16 pm

A new Wildfire Casino near downtown Las Vegas will open Friday, Feb. 10, just in time for Super Bowl LVII.

Guests can visit the 21,000-square-foot “neighborhood casino” at 2700 E. Fremont St. beginning at noon that day, Station Casinos said last week.

The new Fremont location will have “new creature comforts,” company officials previously said, including 200 slot machines, bar-top and electronic table games, a full-service STN Sportsbook, 16 TVs around the bar, an IHOP and local Mexican restaurant Tacos El Pastor.
