Aliante Casino Hotel & Spa
Address: 7300 Aliante Parkway, North Las Vegas, NV 89084
This hotel resort has become a significant casino star in the Las Vegas region. It’s the latest to be constructed in North Las Vegas, and is a drive of about 25 minutes — or roughly 20 miles — from the LV Strip. It’s on the Aliante Parkway, which is easy to remember. Built in 2008, Aliante was owned originally by Station Casinos, and sold to Boyd in 2016. It takes its name from the community of Aliante, which was envisioned as primarily residential and recreational, with plans to allow 1 casino; it would rival Summerlin and similar areas.
Development happened fast. Now that Aliante is under different ownership, it too has changed somewhat according to Boyd management ideas.
Penny machines predominated the slots when Aliante opened. About 2/3 of the 2500 or more games were penny slots. Now there are about 1860 machines.
All the favorite classic casino games of blackjack, craps, roulette, video poker, Pai Gow poker.
Bingo: Once you’re away from the Strip, casinos usually have bingo in the area. Aliante’s bingo parlor serves 200 players, and uses paper cards exclusively. It is also completely non-smoking. Their bingo staff is, as the rest of the resort workers, reviewed as being very friendly and thus made the gaming better.
Their race and sports book areas get strong positive reviews for the ease of wagering, and comfort.

Parking is free in the garage, so when the lot in front gets full, which it does quickly, head for the garage.
This is a well-reviewed, relaxing resort away from the noise of the Strip. Pluses seem to be that staff is friendly, the spa area and pool are very attractive, and much of the casino provides fun — particularly sports book action — but reviews on the other side indicate the hotel often has shortages of supplies and may possibly have some age problems.
