Hacienda Hotel & Casino
by Clare Estrada
The Hacienda Hotel and Casino on US Highway 93 near the Hoover Dam continues to be Boulder City’s best bet for gaming excitement, first-class entertainment, and quality dining.
Tony Korfman, Director of Operations at the Hacienda for the past two years and former General Manager when the Hacienda was the old “Gold Strike Inn”, has an unmistakable style!
There is always something happening at the Hacienda! On the gaming floor, slots players are enjoying new and upgraded games. A large crowd plays each week in a free video poker tournament. Pit players now have a choice of blackjack, roulette and an exciting new craps game. Live poker is available every night and weekly poker tournaments are extremely popular.
Entertainment at the Hacienda is first rate. Groups like “Spectrum”, voted Las Vegas’ best lounge act for 2 years in a row, perform in the newly renovated Stage Bar. Crooning for the customers are the Legendary Superstars: Elvis (performed by Mark Davis), Neil Diamond (performed by Rick Pierce), Rod Stewart (performed by Joe Bramanti), Frank Sinatra (performed by Boulder City’s own Mike Miele) and the talented Lili Rose.
The Steakhouse at the Hacienda is truly a hidden jewel. In an atmosphere of casual elegance, customers experience memorable fine dining at affordable prices. The Café and Buffet consistently offer great meals at great rates.
The Hacienda takes enormous pride in providing “the friendly personal touch”. Their team really does get to know your name. Chuck Peterson, the Slots Ambassador known as “Mr. Lucky”, has been making Boulder City folks feel welcome for over 25 years. Come spin Mr. Lucky’s Big 6 Wheel for cash and prizes!
Tony Korfman wants customers to just have fun. His latest personal passion is live poker. He is a frequent and knowledgeable poker player and he has just finished writing a book about his favorite pastime. Tony is the past author of several humorous and informative gaming guides. His new book, titled “Texas Hold’em Tournaments, Cash Games and Embarrassing Social Gas” will be available for sale on Pokergas.com after March 15th. A future book tour is also planned.
