Review and Photos of Peppermill Casino Reno
Everything about Peppermill Casino Hotel is over the top. And we mean that in a good way.
While the flashy decor is the first thing that will strike you, there is a lot more
to the Peppermill experience that sets it apart from your average casino including:
consistently good dining choices
with frequent specials, an entertaining atmosphere on the casino floor, comfortable
rooms and suites, and top-notch service.
The Peppermill continues to gather accolades for the Reno/Sparks area in the Nevada
Magazine's Best of Nevada readers polls. These include: Best Hotel/Resort, Best Place to
Gamble, Friendliest Casino, Best Gourmet Restaurant, Best Italian Restaurant, and the Best
Buffet. Readers polls by Casino Player and Strictly Slots magazines also
hand their casino and restaurants 'Best of Reno' awards annually.
Peppermill is located about two miles south of downtown on Virginia Street. The area to the
south of Peppermill, near the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, is home to some shopping malls,
restaurants, and the Atlantis Casino Resort (about one mile). The airport is also close by.

We stayed in a standard Peppermill Tower Room with two queen beds. The furnishings and decor
Peppermill-flashy (blue and black color scheme with lots of mirrors, velour and velvet fabrics,
and glossy black furniture), but the room quality, size, and comfort were top-notch.
The room was equipped with a hair dryer, desk, clock radio, lounge chairs, cable television with in-room
movies and internet service, make-up mirror, iron, and a mini "robo" bar stocked with liquor,
drinks, snacks, and soda (no safe, coffee maker, or HBO). Suites have a wet bar, fridge,

Entertainment @ Peppermill Casino -
Free entertainment includes free shows (usually a local band) on the Cabaret stage starting at 7 PM nightly.
The Steakhouse Lounge has live piano music from 8:00 to 11:00 PM Fridays and Saturdays.
Peppermill's Mahogany Ballroom hosts the bigger concerts and shows.
Themed bars are located throughout the casino. There are twelve of them with a wide range of
moods and settings. For example, the Fireside Bar is relaxing and intimate, the Fish Bar
has aquarium walls and tiki drinks, and the Banyan Bar has a tropical South Seas theme.
Peppermill Casino -
Peppermill Casino is a vibrant, purple wonderland for adults. There is pink and purple everywhere
(the lights, furniture, etc); the rest of the space is filled with tropical plants, chandeliers,
video monitors, themed bars, and casino games. Maybe this much flashy glitz all
packed into one space would be tacky somewhere else, but here it is actually warm and inviting.
There are over 1900 slots including popular old stand-bys, the latest video machines, and a few
we didn't see anywhere else in Reno. The machines are all ticket-in ticket-out for easy redemption
(and cleaner hands). Barracude Beach is a happening area loaded with the latest penny slots. Video Poker
players might find some full-pay machines if they look long enough. In
addition to machine and table games, there is also Keno, a smoke-free poker room, and a race and sports
book (with 74 monitors and 70 arm chairs).
Peppermill runs weekly tournaments, as well as some bigger, less-frequent tourneys. The
weekly tournament schedule includes events in Black Jack, Keno, Poker and Video Poker, and slot machines.
The Plus55 program includes benefits such as discounts on meals for senior
citizen such as 2 for 1 Island Buffet breakfast or lunch.
