$800M Casino Coming to Sparks/Reno Marina

Olympia Gaming, builders of the Southern Highlands Casino Resort Spa on the Vegas strip south of Mandalay Bay, has announced that they will be building a new $800 million dollar casino, resort, spa and marina in Reno sister city Sparks entitled "Legends".

This is the first new casino resort construction in the Reno area since the Silver Legacy opened in the mid 1990's.


Ground breaking for the project will happen in early 2008 with the resort scheduled to open in 2010.

This is a very big deal for the Reno/Sparks gaming industry and will hopefully spark a rash of development and upgrades that have overrun Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Lord knows Reno needs it if they want us to keep coming there.
