25th Anniversary Fun Facts

June 23, 2022

Here’s to 25 Years!

Silverton Casino opened its doors as a lodge themed casino and hotel in 1997 under the ownership of Ed Roski’s Majestic Realty Co.  Over a quarter century, the property has grown and enjoyed many memorable moments along the way.

It has introduced mermaids to the desert, Bass Pro Shops has joined in the fun and there’s more to look forward to in the future as the Silverton Village grows.  In honor of our 25th anniversary, here are a few fun facts about Silverton Casino:
