“Great night out dining & gambling.”
Review of Rail City Casino

Rail City Casino
Ranked #5 of 22 things to do in Sparks
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 December 2013

From first appearance when driving up, the casino looked small, but once inside it wasn't so small. The floor plan was spacious & clean. Tons of parking outside. Played the slots and came out way ahead of what I started out with. That was nice as I always break even and that's not much fun after awhile. The Cafe` buffet was great, waitress was dressed nicely, clean uniform and always with a smile! Made me feel at home, she was also spot on for service, didn't have to wait long at all. She was very well informed of policy and suggested to come back on certain nights for certain buffets. But all the staff was nice! Food was hot and plentiful, enjoyed the variety of food they had, it was Mexican night. Casino was clean, well lit and not stuffy or smelly. Staff was more then friendly, mens room was clean and fresh smelling, who likes a stinky mens room? All in all, it was like a family style casino, not like the big box types, that are very formal & impersonal. I will be going back to visit the Cafe & do play some slots, who knows I may even try my hand at some poker! It's a must visit place in Sparks!

The good part about Rail City are the drink and food specials. My favorite happens to be WING WEDNESDAY...50 cent wings! They are also very close to downtown sparks, so its a good start or end spot for special events. The down side is it STILL is a smokey casino...so if you are a non smoker or have problems breathing, this may not be for you...

The Rail City Casino is like many of the smaller local gaming sites. Locals are the thrust of the advertising and deals. The Ale House has excellent food and drink - very friendly. I gave up eating at the City Cafe because the food was "D" or "C" quality. Overall you can have fun at this locals staple.

Please be warned about this casino in Sparks. It sits in a rough looking area and the folks inside look about the same., The main reason I'm writing this negative review is to warn everyone that the Blackjack dealers may not be giving you their most honest shuffles.

It's not the dealing ,it's their shuffling. It's about as close to being a stacked deck as you can get.

I've played blackjack for many years and have seen a lot of hustling from the dealers ,but this place is really bad,.

They shuffle the cards and the cards remain in pretty much the exact same location in the deck as they were collected,at the end of the deal. So you will pretty much get the same stiff hands .

I checked it out ,and the same hands in the same suits kept repeating and they will not reshuffle the cards. So I got up and left.
Don't trust these bums!

A very good place to spend time on vacation. We go to Sparks for 1 week every year. And always spend a few days at Rail City Casino the staff always have been very friendly. And very good place for meals any time of the day.
