Las Vegas’ Sunset Station Upgrade Starts Work, New Sportsbook Coming Soon
Las Vegas’ Sunset Station has commenced a significant property-wide upgrade impacting various areas, including the casino floor, sportsbook, and high-limit slots room. The renovation, which began this week on October 9, will result in a shiny new addition to the list of Nevada retail sportsbooks (rendering pictured) and an upgraded casino experience.
Sunset Station is one of the more locals-oriented Nevada casino venues in the Las Vegas area. The Station Casinos venture is located in the city’s southeastern suburb of Henderson, some 20 minutes’ drive from the Las Vegas Strip.
“We are thrilled to bring our guests an all-new gaming and sports betting offering in the coming months at Sunset Station,” said Jordan Seager, VP and GM of Sunset Station, in a Station Casinos press release.
“For more than 25 years, Sunset Station continues to raise the bar for our Henderson neighbors – this remodel will no doubt offer a best-in-class experience for our guests.”
New Sportsbook and High-Limit Slots Room
As part of the revamp, the existing Race and Sportsbook at Sunset Station will be temporarily closed to make way for a new in-house branded STN Sportsbook. The new sportsbook is set to feature a 150-foot video wall, lounge-style seating, race and sports betting kiosks, and a larger bar area with an improved drinks menu bar top betting screens.
During the renovation, a temporary sportsbook will be available next to the Rewards Center, and the bar venue Club Madrid will become a viewing destination for professional and college football games.
The casino floor will undergo a four-phase refresh, introducing new carpeting, improved lighting, updated facades, and modernized restrooms, while maintaining the original Spanish-style theme.
This phased renovation strategy will ensure that the majority of the casino floor will remain open to existing patrons at most times during the works.
The high-limit slots room will also be relocated to the former keno area to become part of the new sportsbook.
The renovation is part of Station Casinos’ strategy to reinvest in its properties, and it is being conducted with strategic planning to ensure minimal disruption to the gaming experience.
Temporary arrangements, such as the provisional sportsbook and the transformation of Club Madrid into a football viewing hub, are designed to provide continuity for patrons during the upgrade.
Station Casinos, with its related holding company Red Rock Resorts, is currently embarking on ambitious expansion plans across the Las Vegas area.
The operator recently saw the approval of its license to open the new Durango Casino Resort, which is aiming to capture the locals market in the southwestern suburbs of Sin City. At a meeting to discuss the Durango project last month, Red Rock executives revealed it plans to open seven more casinos in the Nevada market in the next 10 years.
Station Casino and Red Rock are owned by the billionaire brothers Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta. Their cousin Tilman Fertitta is also a billionaire, and owns among other interests, the NBA’s Houston Rockets basketball team and the expanding Golden Nugget casino chain.
