Welcome to Nevada, the gamblers (fools?) paradise. Well, here’s hoping that you’re very lucky, because hotels and casinos
often walk hand in hand in this state, and it can be hard not to test the slots, at the very least. This isn’t just in gambling epicenters like Vegas and Reno. Winnemucca, which is popular overnight stay for road travelers, also has many of these casino hotels. Here are the three most popular. Hey, maybe you’ll even win your next day’s gas money (you’d have to hit the jackpot, with these gas prices.)
