Binions, Downtown Las Vegas, 2005

Few Las Vegas venues capture the colorful history of old Las Vegas as the old Binions. The hotel and casino are small compared with the newer mega-resort venues up and down the strip, and after near bankrupcy and sale to Harrah's in 2004 the venue is now resurrected as Binions Gambling Hall and Hotel http://www.binions.com/

History of Binions:
In 1951 Benny Binion reopened the Eldorado Club and Apache Hotel, naming the new venue the "Horseshoe Casino" and styling it as a riverboat.

Only a few years later Binion was convicted of tax evasion and served about 4 years in Leavenworth.

As a convicted felon Binion could no longer own the casino but his family had a controlling interest and he continued as consultant until his death in 1989.

In 1970 the World Series of Poker began at the Horseshoe and would eventually create the largest poker tournament series in the world.

Daughter Becky Behnen acquired controlling interest in the casino in 1998, but legal conflicts with the culinary workers and bartenders unions led Binions to near bankupcy, leading to a sale to Harrah's in 2004.
