Original Story

Buffalo Bill’s recently resumed operations at its Primm, Nevada location, conveniently situated along Interstate 15 at the border of California and Nevada.

It was on June 3, 2022, when everything changed. The feeling of anticipation filled the air as people eagerly awaited the reopening. It was a date that held significance, as it marked one day less than the second anniversary of Nevada's casino grand reopening after the devastating pandemic closure. The memory of June 4, 2020, still lingered in our minds, a reminder of the challenges we had overcome. But now, on this day, a new chapter was beginning. The doors swung open, and the familiar sights and sounds of the casino greeted us once again. The slot machines chimed, the roulette wheel spun, and the cards shuffled. It was as if time had stood still, yet moved forward all at once. The energy in the room was palpable, a mix of excitement, relief, and hope for the future. People came from far and wide to be a part of this moment, to experience the thrill of being back in a place that held so many memories. The reopening was not just about the games or the chance to win big; it was about the sense of community, the shared joy, and the resilience of a city that had weathered the storm. As I looked around, I saw smiles on faces that had been hidden behind masks for far too long. It was a reminder of the power of human connection, of the need for social interaction and the simple pleasure of being in the company of others. We had come a long way since that fateful day in 2020, and now, standing here in the midst of the excitement and energy, I couldn't help but feel a renewed sense of hope and optimism. The reopening was a symbol of our collective strength and determination, a testament to what we could overcome when we stood together. As the day turned to night, the lights of the casino illuminated the city, casting a vibrant glow that echoed the spirit of resilience that defined us. The reopening was a celebration, a moment to cherish and savor, for it marked not only the return of the casinos but also the return of a city that had been brought to its knees. It was a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is always a glimmer of light, a reason to keep moving forward. And as I walked through the bustling casino floor, surrounded by the sounds of laughter and the clinking of glasses, I knew that we had emerged stronger than ever.

Buffalo Bill's has finally made its grand return as it recently hosted its first concert in the Star of the Desert Arena after a lengthy hiatus of over two years. The spotlight belonged to the talented Ramón Ayala, captivating the audience with his mesmerizing performance. Adding to the excitement, the hotel at Buffalo Bill's also reopened its doors for the first time since March 2020, welcoming guests with open arms. To celebrate this momentous occasion, a special VIP package was offered, allowing guests to indulge in the ultimate experience for just $499. This exclusive package included not only tickets to the electrifying concert but also a luxurious hotel room at Buffalo Bill's, ensuring a truly unforgettable stay.

I had the chance to visit the vibrant town of Primm last weekend, and to my surprise, the hotel at Whiskey Pete's was finally up and running. It was a momentous occasion, as it marked the first time since March 2020 that all three Primm hotels were open to the public. Usually, it's only the Primm Valley Resort that remains operational, while the hotel at Whiskey Pete's sporadically opens its doors for a few bustling weekends throughout the course of two years. However, this time, luck was on our side, and we got to experience the full charm and hospitality of all three hotels in this quaint town.

Denny's and Cuca's Mexican Food were the only restaurants in operation, while the amusement area was cordoned off and all food court establishments remained closed.

Explore the diverse range of casino games offered at Buffalo Bill's.

During the period of closure, Buffalo Bill's decided to remove all of their live table games. In their place, they introduced four electronic table games for their patrons to enjoy. Among these new additions, there is the exciting $1 Big Wheel game, bubble craps, and double zero roulette. Additionally, there is a six-seat video blackjack machine that requires a minimum bet of $3. This particular machine pays out at a ratio of 6:5, and it also offers side bets such as Lucky Lucky and Lucky Aces.

In the high limit slot area, you can still find the $5 8/5 Bonus Poker machines. However, if you're looking for the best game with higher chances of winning, I discovered that the $0.25, $0.50, and $1 denominations offer pay tables in the 97% range. These machines give you a better shot at hitting a winning combination and walking away with some extra cash. So, if you're ready to try your luck and potentially increase your chances of winning, give these lower denomination machines a go. They might just be your ticket to a successful gambling session.
