Bodines Casino opens in south Carson City
A new $20 million Bodines Casino reopened last week at the corners of Highway 395 and Old Clear Creek Road in south Carson City. The 30,000-square-foot property is jointly owned by Mike Pegram of Arizona, Rick Murdock of Reno and the Carano family, owners of the Eldorado Hotel and Casino.
A 20-year-old restaurant formerly located at the site was demolished in February to make way for the new facility.
“The thing that I like most about entrepreneurship is I can work toward something that I’m passionate about and be at the forefront of the change that I want to see happen,” said Priyanka Senthil, a senior at Davidson Academy in Reno and co-founder of startup company AUesome.
