History[edit]

Mi Casa Grill Cantina at Silverton Casino Hotel

Ed Roski's company, Majestic Realty, purchased an 80-acre parcel of land along Interstate 15 in 1989, intending to build an industrial warehouse.[1]

Boomtown opened in 1994 as a mining-themed locals casino with 300 hotel rooms, operated by Boomtown, Inc., with Majestic as landlord.[1] After suffering financially, the property was taken over by Roski in 1997 and renamed Silverton on December 2, 1997.[1] Roski began down a path of cutting staff from 1,400 to 900 and re-theming the resort as a hunting lodge.[2][3]

A $150-million renovation in 2004 included the opening of a 145,000-square-foot (13,500 m2) Bass Pro Shop.[3] Due to its size and location, it has become a tourist attraction. In addition four or five of the rooms were remodeled to jacuzzi suites along with the hotel. Many new restaurants were added to enhance the modern Vegas theme including a fine dining steakhouse and high end lounge.

In 2009, a $160-million renovation was completed, including a new parking garage added in 2008, new restaurants, and a casino expansion.[2] An aggressive new marketing campaign was launched at the same time to compete with the newly opened M Resort nearby.[2]
