John Ascuaga?s Nugget Casino Reviewed by Thehooks

The Club Cal Neva sports book is located on the bottom floor of the Nugget Casino. Down stairs there is a nice bar, bingo parlor, horse bet racing section, a deli, and many big screens to watch the games. When staying at the Nugget this is an easy walk back and forth to the Silver Club.

This is the sports book if you are looking for all the betting options and want a clean atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and you never have to ask for a drink toke. The lines can get long right before a game so get your bets down early or get ready to walk over to the Silver Club. The Club Cal Neva sportsbook has the best odds on the parlay cards and carries money lines on most games. You can also expect to see a first half and a second half line for all the games. The action is endless through out the Nugget. They have every table game and over 1,000 machines for your enjoyment. The restaurants are very good in the Casino and the rooms are very clean.

The only down side to staying at the Nugget is if you are a bargain shopper you will not get any deals on the rooms here. The Nugget does not believe in lowering the room rates, a small price to pay for such a great hidden gem in Northern Nevada.

The Nugget and the Silver club anchor downtown Sparks. Sparks has done a great job of remodeling downtown and offers many great events through out the year. Most of the events play out on Victorian Avenue between the Silver Club and John Ascuaga's Nugget Casino. There is a great water fountain right outside the Movie Theatre, which sits 200 yards to the sides of the two casinos.
