Pioneer Crossing Casino in Fernley unveils new remodel and expansion

The Fernley Reporter

Since February of this year, Pioneer Crossing Casino in Fernley has been under construction, making significant improvements throughout the entire property.

The estimated $1 million dollar remodel comes on the heels of the Fernley casinos 12th anniversary.

CEO Mike Benjamin said the remodel has been in the works for some time.


“We’ve been working on this remodel and expansion for years and it feels great to finally see it all come together,” he said.

Benjamin went on to say the decision to make the investment now was partly due to the much anticipated growth in Fernley and the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center area.

The expansion and remodel includes additional square footage to the casino floor and gaming area, new carpet, a larger Players Club, a new Sports Bar & Lounge with a 14-screen video-wall. The expanded gaming area features new, state of the art, slots increasing the casinos slot capacity by 25 percent. The completely remodeled and re-branded Chuckwagon restaurant gets a new name, the Branding Iron Café & Steakhouse. The Café menu has been updated with additional local favorites and a new Steakhouse menu featuring California grown, Harris Ranch Angus Beef.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony and festivities will be held Wednesday May 24, beginning at 3 p.m.

    I’ve been waiting to see an article about the recent sale of the Pioneer Crossing group, Fernley, Dayton, and Yerington, set to close in December. The Fernley manager, George, has said he has not been interviewed by anyone on the subject, but gave me permission to say this to you.
