Average Reviews


The Sahara Hotel and Casino opened in 1952 replacing Club Bingo, a casino that opened its doors in 1947. Milton Prell spearheaded the change when he founded the Sahara. He opened the hotel and casino with an exotic African-theme encasing the property from the desert scene outside the casino with the famed Sahara camels, to the inside with the Casbar Lounge and Congo Showroom.
In 1961, the Del Webb Corporation purchased the Sahara and funded a $12 million hotel renovation.
William G. Bennett purchased the property in 1995 and immediately began a $100 million renovation project. The changes included a new Congo Room, as well as the brand new Sahara Theater.

Three hotel towers feature 1,720 guest rooms and suites.
The 85,000-square-foot casino has $1 blackjack, $1 craps, keno, pai gow poker, live poker, roulette, a race and sports book, and more than 1,200 of the most up-to-date reel slots, video poker and keno machines.
