I always enjoy going to the Silverton. Casino is spacious, fresh and clean and has a great variety of slots. If you want a break from gambling, you can watch fish swim in their huge tank and even see jelly fish in their own tank. For sports people, there is a Bass Pro shop adjoining the casino and you can shop to your heart's content. We also love their buffet. They have frequent senior specials and the food is very good. It's off the strip, but parking is good and the desert landscaping is beautiful. We've also stayed at their hotel and were very pleased with the accommodations and service..
We went to Silverton for the first time in years to try their buffet. It was excellent. While there we played some slots and they were fun and the casino was clean. But the best part was their poker room. There was one seat open so I jumped on the opportunity and played several hours. The staff was very nice, the players were mostly local and very friendly, it was really quite fun. For those who are outdoors types, Bass Pro is affiliated with Silverton so they have a full Bass Pro shop there. I am from the city where Bass Pro's headquarters are located so I was aware of their presence before I went there. I am not a big hunter type but for those who are hunters or fishermen, it's a big bonus.
I stumbled across this jewel while in town on a business trip (yes, a business trip). I love it here. I am saying that even though I haven't walked away with my pockets full. The rooms are wonderful and really give off a cabi/lodge like atmosphere. There's a variety of slots to choose from and the tables always have polite staff.
There are several places to eat and dine on the floor of the casino - no 10 mile hike to try and find the buffet line. It is almost like a fancy food court.
And one thing that sticks in my mind is that there's always a players club promo going on that entails turning in your points of the day for a random item that you would see advertised at 2am on tv. A shammy wow, a non stick pan, a car handwarmer...
Want to take a break from the action? Hang out at the floor to ceiling fish tank... time it so that you can see the mermaids and divers feeding or cleaning the tank.
Had enough of fish? Stroll into the full sized footprint of a Bass Pro Shop. I think that is the funniest thing! Out of clothes and ammo? Stop right in!
