Get Charged-Up About Going Green

When you hear the term “green” in Las Vegas, it would come as no surprise to learn that someone’s first thoughts would be of the felt of their favorite table game or more obviously the dollar bills they left with after their big win. While we’re big fans of both of those types of “green”, there are other ways Silverton Casino and everyone at Silverton Village is getting a little more “green”.

Did you know that there are over 20 charging stations throughout Silverton Village and growing? Whether you’re grabbing a quick charge while getting your own quick charge in the form of something caffeinated and delicious while stopping into Starbucks Coffee or getting charged up for a road trip during your stay at Hyatt Place Las Vegas at Silverton Village, we have you covered. Charging stations can also be found on nearly every level of the Silverton Casino parking garage for your convenience, and yes parking is always free.

But what if you don’t have an electric car? We have just the answer, try your luck at our Charged-Up Electric Car Drawing this November! Silverton Rewards Club members may earn 100 points per drawing entry for the chance to win a Tesla Model 3 on Saturday, November 30th! Be sure to earn entries for the drawing November 1st through the 30th. What an awesome way to go green and drive away in style!

Looking for a delicious way to go green while also getting in your greens for the day? Award-winning Twin Creeks Steakhouse offers a delectable plant-based menu with a little something for everyone including favorites like the grilled artichoke, watermelon salad and pasta primavera.

We believe going green starts with small changes that can lead to big differences over time – and don’t’ worry, we’ll ask first before giving you a straw.

Making a Splash in the Business of Back to School

It’s wild to think that in just a short few weeks the children of the Las Vegas valley will be heading back to school. Whether you’re sad to see another summer come to a close, or ready to get back into the routine of a school day schedule, we have a few ways you can make the most of those remaining summer days leading up to that first day back to school.

Send the kids back to a school that they’re guaranteed to love. Saturdays and Sundays 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM children 7-12 years old can enroll in Mermaid School for the opportunity to learn just what it takes to become a Silverton Mermaid!

Your child can learn to swim like a professional mermaid while immersing themselves in our aquarium full of exotic fish during a class taught by one of our very own Silverton Mermaid professionals. They will also be able to enjoy a behind the scenes tour of our award-winning aquarium to complete the full mermaid experience!

Another great way to get into the Back to School, and giving, spirit is by donating to our School Supply Drive that will be running August 1st-10th. Bring any new items including backpacks, pencils, pens, paper, folders, highlighters, glue, crayons, markers, tissues, wipes, or dry erase pens to the Player’s Club and receive $5 off any regular buffet at Seasons Buffet. These donations will be collected to benefit the local Clark County School District students of Dr. Beverly S. Mathis Elementary School.

Another way Silverton Casino loves to help our local students is by volunteering our time with the Goodie Two Shoes Foundation, a local charity that provides simple necessities in a fun and exciting atmosphere to disadvantaged children.

How are you getting ready to head into another school year?





Skip the Strip this New Year’s Eve

Las Vegas knows how to put on a party, especially on New Year’s Eve. The Las Vegas Strip is teeming with tourists and locals looking to have a big celebration to ring in the new year. But for those looking to have a more laid-back celebration and want to party without having to deal with the crazy crowds of the Strip, our Skip the Strip party might just be the kind of new year’s bash you’re looking for.

The NFR Dress Code

Calling all cowgirls and cowboys—the “Super Bowl of Rodeo” is just around the corner! We’ve got plenty of fun planned this December at our free NFR viewing parties featuring live entertainment, giveaways, food and drink specials, and more. We’re already planning what we’ll be wearing to this Western soirée. Expect lots of denim, faux suede, mineral necklaces, and of course, the essential cowboy boots and hats!

Let’s discuss the dress code for men which follows an elevated cowboy look that allows you to show off your best digs. Wrangler jeans are a must! Pair the jeans with a crisp plaid or paisley double-pocket shirt like the one pictured below which combines utility and style. A durable leather belt with a steel buckle adds flair to the denim. Whether you prefer black or brown leather, the belt absolutely needs an eye-catching buckle. Accessories are key! Fresh cowboy boots and a classic wide-brimmed cowboy hat should complete your Western look. Take the classic route with brown leather embroidered square-toe boots unless you prefer to sacrifice functionality for style with trendy pointed-toe boots.

Western-wear for women encompasses a whole genre of style. There are so many options. You can go modern with the Western Revival trend which involves flowy bohemian dresses and sleeker pieces or go for the classic cowgirl look involving denim, suede, turquoise accessories, and leather. Or you can combine both styles as shown below. Having a hard time finding a good selection of Western dresses? Check out the Dillard’s online Western Revival Boutique—it’s a one-stop shop with a selection of almost 100 dresses to choose from! Whether you choose to rock the denim look or the trendy flowy dresses, staple pieces like wide-brimmed hats and cowgirl boots are essential to complete this NFR-ready look.

Accessories make the outfit. Boot Barn has an incredible selection of cowgirl hats offered at decent prices. But if you’re looking for a trendier look, check out Lack of Color for sleek and modern wool cowgirl hats. Choose from a large variety of stylish cowgirl boots from Boot Barn. You can go for an understated stacked-heel leather boot to complement your look, or an intricate embroidered snip-toe boot to accent your outfit. The possibilities are endless! Finish the look with turquoise and silver jewelry and you’re ready to party!

Silverton Casino is throwing a huge NFR party from December 6 through December 15. Join us at Veil Pavilion to watch the 60th annual Wrangler NFR from 6:30pm to midnight. Our viewing parties include prizes, giveaways, food and drink specials, 360° viewing, and more. Live entertainment is available nightly. Performing artists include Ned LeDoux, Chris Heers, Easy 8’s, Gregor Ross, Kevin Fowler, and Randy Brown. Join us for this exciting week as the fashion plate in Western-wear.

Meals with a Mermaid at Silverton Casino’s Aquarium

“Who says that my dreams have to stay just my dreams?” – Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

You no longer have to dream big, little mermaid. Long gone are the days when you would wonder how it would be to have brunch with a mermaid. One of the best free attractions in Las Vegas is now offering Meals with a Mermaid, a unique dining experience available only at Silverton Casino. It’s the perfect activity for families or for those who just want to fulfill their childhood fairytale wishes.

Our Aquarium is a very special Las Vegas fixture. This 117,000-gallon tank is home to thousands of tropical fish including stingrays, smaller sharks, and the occasional Dory and Nemo. Tourists and locals flock to our Aquarium for free mermaid shows, the daily interactive stingray feedings, or to simply breathe in the view and relax. But our guests aren’t the only ones having fun. Our mermaids have fun on the job every day. Former mermaid (now Aquarist) Ariana Liuzzi says, “The best thing about my job is that there [are] no bad days here… The water has always made me feel the most at peace and [happiest].”

 

The mermaids interact with children and guests, pose for photos, put on a fun and engaging 15-minute show, all while swimming in a weighted tail. Most of our mermaids come from synchronized swimming backgrounds so it’s not hard for them to swim gracefully while only having a five oxygen hoses hidden in the coral as their air supply. Some of their signature moves are bubble kisses, flips, and twirls. Each mermaid tail is custom-fitted and we have several pretty patterns and colors. It’s always such a pleasure to see the look on children’s faces when they see the tip of the mermaid tail pop up in the water—that’s the cue that the show is about to begin.

What sets our new Meals with a Mermaid apart from our usual free mermaid show is that it’s a unique experience catered just for you. You dine on breakfast or brunch while having a mermaid dedicated to entertaining and interacting with you and your party. During the meal, you’re welcome to go up to one of the Aquarium glass panels left open so you can take photos and videos with the mermaids. There are usually two mermaids in the tank during the meal, which is a different experience from the usual free mermaid show. The menu is currently comprised of classic breakfast foods like pancakes, turkey club, and country fried steak. In October, the menu will be shifting to a breakfast buffet offering more choices.

Silverton Aquarium; Mermaid Breakfast

Football, Food & Free Slot Play

Sports lovers unite—football season is here! Whether you’ve already done your fantasy football drafts or are just planning a last-minute draft party, you can’t deny the excitement and adrenaline-pumping fun associated with a true football fan cheering on his or her favorite team. Silverton Casino has a couple ways to add to the fun like special football-themed menus and an interactive gaming promotion at our bars.

Football, food, and beer make for the perfect trifecta. Check out our Football Specials available all season-long at Mi Casa Grill Cantina, Mermaid Lounge, and Shady Grove Lounge, the three best places to catch your game. Mi Casa Grill Cantina features a Mexican twist on traditional game day food. Expect carne asada fries, Mexican-inspired sliders, Mexican street dogs with chorizo and guac, and more yumminess.

If you’re looking for some classic game-day food, then Mermaid Lounge is your go-to place all season long. Try their smothered tailgate nachos, loaded chili dog, or the juicy honey chicken sliders. Got your mouth watering yet? If the game is getting a bit too stressful for you, take a breather and enjoy our jellyfish tank at the bar or the view of the Aquarium.

We also have the Total Game Experience package for only $30 at Shady Grove Lounge for those hungry for an all-you-can-eat and drink deal. Have all the chicken wings, pizza, and sub sandwiches until your heart (and stomach) are content! Watching the game with friends? Shady Grove Lounge is the perfect place for a gathering of football fans. Airstream bowling, giant Jenga, and giant Connect Four can keep you occupied on those long commercial breaks.

Aside from the fantastic football food, we also have a bar top gaming promotion. This one doesn’t require a Hail Mary to win. Get a natural four-of-a-kind to receive the pigskin and whoever has it at the end of the quarter wins $50 free slot play. Winners also get an entry into the season-long drawing for an ultimate football prize package. The winner will receive two recliners from Walker Furniture, a 60″ flat screen TV, and other prizes to create the best man cave or she shed. Be a part of the game and Pass the Pigskin the next time you’re playing video poker at our bars on Mondays & Thursdays during NFL games (available at Mermaid Lounge, Mi Casa Grill Cantina, Flare Bar, and Shady Grove Bar).

Are you ready for some football?

A Girl’s Summer Vacation at Silverton Casino

Does scrolling through the Instagram feeds of your favorite travel bloggers and friends on vacation have you wanting to get away for a little this summer, even for just a weekend? You’ve worked hard all year but you don’t want to spend a fortune on the Vegas experience. Whether it be a staycation or a full-on break, let Silverton Casino handle your perfect Vegas experience on an affordable budget.

You don’t have to stay on The Las Vegas Strip to enjoy VIP status. Our summer hotel rates are discounted up to 30% off and run through the end of September. Just because you’re on a budget, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice exceptional service and quality. Our Hotel offers luxury suites and updated rooms for that modern rustic feel. Although we’re off The Strip, we’re conveniently close to the airport and highways. But, if you didn’t road trip to Vegas, you can always take advantage of our complimentary shuttle service available to Hotel guests to/from the airport. Or, you can wait for your ride in comfort at our LYFT Lounge.

You’ve booked your summer stay and finally get to Vegas, check-in, and drop off your luggage at the room. You lay down on our extremely comfortable bed and start to doze off (yes, it’s like you’re sleeping on clouds!)… But you jolt awake—now is not the time to doze off when there’s so much to do! But what to do first?

Barefoot Bucket

Take a walk downstairs to Sway Pool, where you can spend a peaceful summer afternoon basking in the sun. Grab a couple of specialty cocktails from the bar or a whole bucket of wine spritzers and relax. This is your self-care time and nothing can spoil it. Hungry for lunch but looking for something quick but not quite “fast food”? Walk to WuHu Noodle for authentic Chinese served in a casual setting, perfect for those who want a simple yet delicious lunch. The dim sum menu is to die for, but so are their classic wok entrées! As you’re finishing up your late lunch, you decide to catch a LYFT to spend a few hours on The Strip, electing to go at night to avoid the intense desert heat.

Steamed Dumpling

After a fun night on The Strip, you choose to take it easy the next day. You play a little bit of our $5 Blackjack and happen to spy the large Aquarium you passed by on the way in. You cash out and make your way towards the stunning aquarium.

Your curiosity leads you inside and you wander the flagship 165,000 square-foot Outdoor World for a while, finding the best deals on camping gear and activewear. For a millisecond, you might have even considered buying a boat. On your way out with your bags of athletic wear and goodies, you have a sudden craving for an afternoon pick-me-up. Make your way over to Sundance Grill for their Gelato Bar and treat yourself to an ice-cold sweet treat.

Dinner is at Mi Casa Grill Cantina and you just so happen to drop by during happy hour. While sampling small plates, you sip on your margarita and enjoy a quality experience at half the price. While giving the menu a second look, the new Twin Creeks Steakhouse menu catches your eye and you decide on the Halibut. You could not have made a better choice—healthy and indulgent at the same time and very forgiving after those two scoops of gelato.

Cauliflower Steak

Relaxing at Sway Pool is all that’s on the itinerary for the next couple days until you check out, and we can’t blame you. You bask in the sun and breathe in while thinking, “This is the life.”

You could have this experience at Silverton Casino. Book your getaway with us today.

It’s Shark Week!

Shark Week holds a very special place in our hearts. As you know, our Aquarium is one of the best free attractions in Las Vegas and we constantly add new fish and species to our ecosystem. Did you know that we have a few sharks, too? Our Aquarium, which holds over 117,000 gallons of water, is home to thousands of tropical fish. It’s also home to four different kinds of sharks. Sure, they’re not the large predatory kind that pops into your head when you think of sharks, but they’re a cute bunch! In honor of Shark Week, we’re introducing to you the sharks in our Aquarium.

White-spotted Bamboo Shark (Chiloscyllium plagiosum)

Found in the Pacific Ocean, this docile shark can grow up to three feet in length and can be found primarily near the Indo-West Pacific Ocean regions of Madagascar, India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Japan and the Philippines. Since they’re smaller sharks, they prefer living in shallow tropical reefs. Their slender bodies allow them to glide between coral branches and hide in the small crevices of reefs.

The white-spotted bamboo shark is also known as “cat sharks” because their nasal barbels look like cat whiskers. These “whiskers” help them locate food in the sand. In the ocean, their diet consists of shrimp, small fish, and crab. These nocturnal predators usually scour the sea bottom for food. In our Aquarium, our white-spotted bamboo sharks are fed shrimp, squid, smelt, and mackerel. We also have albino versions of this shark which lacks the brown coloration and are completely white. Watch our Aquatics team feed them below.

 

California Horn Shark (Heterodontus francisci)

This California horn shark is a sluggish species with edges above the eyes and a pig-like snout and belongs to the bullhead shark family. They can grow up to three feet in length and are unique because of the small horn that grows right in front of their dorsal fins. These sluggish and nocturnal creatures hunt food closer to shore at night and return to their familiar resting place during the day.

California Horn Shark

These horn sharks are not considered a threat to humans because of their small size and teeth structure. They can live more than a decade and are usually fed shrimp, squid, smelt, and mackerel in our Aquarium. In the wild, they usually feed on shrimp, crab, sea urchins, and small fishes. Primarily found in warm-temperate waters, these sharks are found in the eastern Pacific Ocean from central California to the Gulf of California. We’ve named our California horn shark, Bruce. Say hello to him near the bubble window at our Aquarium where he likes to rest during the day.

Japanese Leopard Shark (Triakis scyllium)

Leopard Shark

The Japanese leopard shark can grow up to five feet in length, which makes it the largest shark in our Aquarium. Their maximum lifespan is about 30 years but can live up to 20 years in captivity in aquariums. These shark “homebodies” usually remain in the same area for much of their lives and are most common in shallow water, usually following the tide onto mudflats to forage for food. They feed on animals that live in mud, like crabs, shrimp, octopuses and small fish. In our Aquarium, our leopard shark is usually fed shrimp, squid, smelt, mackerel.

These sharks can be found primarily in the northwest Pacific Ocean near shallow waters, but in our Aquarium they can be found swimming near the front of the coral and guests will usually see him at the 1:30 pm stingray feedings. Leopard sharks are the most common species of shark in San Francisco Bay. However, last year hundreds of leopard sharks were found dead in the San Francisco Bay. This mass mortality event could have been caused by meningitis because of a fungal bloom in the stagnant shallow water where they usually reside.

 

Coral Catshark (Atelomycterus marmoratus)

The coral catshark can grow up to two feet in length, making it the smallest shark in our Aquarium. This shark derives its name from its cat-like eyes and slender body. Surprisingly, little is known about the biology of this specific catshark. Primarily found in the Indo-West Pacific from Pakistan to New Guinea, the coral catshark thrives in coral reefs, living in crevices and holes in the reef. Our shark likes to hide in the corals and rockwork as well!

In the ocean, this shark feeds off small, bottom-living invertebrates and bony fishes. In our Aquarium, it is fed shrimp, squid, smelt, and mackerel. Despite its small size, these sharks are semi-aggressive and active swimmers, spending much of their time in caves and crevices. The coral catshark is recognized as one of the best species of shark for a home aquarium.

 

Shark Eggs in our Aquarium

Here’s a white-spotted bamboo shark egg. Our albino and spotted bamboo sharks have been mating in our Aquarium and have laid eggs. The female will lay her eggs in the Aquarium and our staff usually find them wrapped around coral pieces. The juvenile will hatch at about 14 to 15 weeks and be around six inches. Since we also have albino bamboo sharks in our Aquarium, it’ll be a surprise for us to see if the hatchling will be standard coloration or also albino.

Watch as the baby shark wriggles inside the egg below.

 

Visit our Aquarium for free mermaid shows and our daily stingray feedings. If you spot one of our sharks, don’t be afraid to wave hello.
