AAA Editor Notes
Peppermill Resort Spa Casino is at 2707 S. Virginia St.; from US 395 take exit 64 (Moana Ln.). It's located along a stretch of Virginia Street about 2 miles south of downtown that's littered with commercial sprawl. The 2-million-square-foot resort is decorated with Romanesque statues on the outside and boasts 10 restaurants and EDGE Nightclub.
Step inside the casino and enjoy light-wood tones and comfy upholstered chairs at the card tables and the slots. LED screens project images from over 30 countries, an art instillation named “Windows of the World.”
The slots here are considered to be on the looser side, and include older single payline classics as well as up-to-the-minute video poker machines, many offering progressive jackpots. The Luxury Poker Room includes a cushy lounge and a self-service soup and beverage station. At the Keno Lounge you can play the ancient Chinese betting game that's somewhat like a 24/7 lottery; it's next to Cafe Milano in a tucked-away (and thus quieter) corner of the casino.
The race and sports book has two 10-foot-wide theater screens and individual “box seat” tables with LCD monitors and Internet access. And kids aren't forgotten; there are motion simulators and loads of state-of-the-art video games at Game Lab on the third floor next to the parking plaza.
Food is available.
