Rainbow Club Casino received a silver designation in the category of Best Brunch and a bronze designation for Best Burger.
“We are proud to be recognized in the Best of Las Vegas Awards in so many categories this year,” said Tim Brooks, co-owner of Emerald Island and Rainbow Club Casino’s. “Both properties have a rich history in Henderson, and we are grateful for the loyalty of our customers and the community who voted for us, but also for the hard work of the staff who are the true honorees of these awards.”
Both the Emerald Island Casino and Rainbow Club Casino are owned and operated by brothers Tim and Mike Brooks. The Emerald Island Casino, previously known as the Pot of Gold Casino, was remodeled, and rebranded in 2003 is now considered the top choice for locals. The Rainbow Club Casino, located on Water Street in the Historic Water Street District of Downtown Henderson, has been a staple of the Henderson community since 1967. Originally operating as a grocery store, the Rainbow Club was built to provide goods and services for workers of the Basic Magnesium Company in World War II. In 1984 Peppermill Casinos bought the property and sold it to the Brooks brothers in 2020, who, after an extensive interior and exterior redesign, re-opened the casino in September of 2020.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal has been conducting the Best of Las Vegas awards since 1981 and this year marks its 40th edition. There were over 400 nomination categories in this year’s contest making it the largest version in the contest’s history.
