Pioneer Crossing Casino in Fernley to unveil nearly $1 million in upgrades
May 28, 2017
Since February, Pioneer Crossing Casino in Fernley has been under construction, making significant improvements throughout the property.
The estimated $1 million remodel comes on the heels of the casino's 12th anniversary.
CEO Mike Benjamin said the remodel has been in the works for several years.
"We've been working on this remodel and expansion for years and it feels great to finally see it all come together," he said.
The decision to make the investment now was due to the anticipated growth in Fernley and the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center area, Benjamin said.
The upgrades include additional square footage to the casino floor and gaming area, new carpet, a larger Players Club, and a new sports bar and lounge complete with a 14-screen video wall.
The expanded gaming area features new state-of-the-art slots, increasing the casinos slot capacity by 25 percent.
Also, the remodeled and rebranded Chuckwagon restaurant has a new name: The Branding Iron Café & Steakhouse.
The eatery's menu has been updated with additional local favorites and a new steak house menu featuring California-grown Harris Ranch Angus beef.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony and festivities are planned at 3 p.m. Wednesday.
