History[edit]

Eastside Cannery Casino and Hotel opened in August 2008, replacing the Nevada Palace, located on the same site since 1979.[1] Nevada Palace closed in February 2008, about two years after the property was purchased by Cannery Casino Resorts. It was torn down in phases as the new property was built behind it; the exact Nevada Palace site is now the current casino's parking lot. All Nevada Palace employees were offered other positions within the Cannery organization, and many were retained as Eastside Cannery staff.[2][3] The $250 million facility was the first major casino to open in more than a decade on Las Vegas’ eastside. It features approximately 2,000 slot machines, 26 table games, a 450-seat bingo room, a race and sports book and poker room, and stands 16 stories tall.

The property became part of Boyd Gaming in December 2016 through its acquisition of Cannery Casino Resorts.[4]
