If a player is a President or Elite Reward card holder, a Casino Host was assigned to a player, in which I didn't knew I had one. It was last month (December 2015), that I booked my free room to stay, but the front desk clerk told me, I need to see my host, so I asked the hotel staff... More

I stayed two nights and gamble late at night. While I don't play slots so I can't comment on them; however, the table games are fun. The dealers (my favorite is Christopher) are very lively even at 3am, all you have to do is talk to them :). So even if you lose at least you are having fun (company... More

If you go there often, and have a President or Elite rewards card, you should get a personal casino host. My Casino host,Alfred Lee has completely changed my experience coming to Thunder Valley. Anytime I want to visit,he goes out of his way to make arrangements for me to have dinner and always notifies me of upcoming complimentary events/shows that... More

This casino, hotel is better than any casino in Lake Tahoe and better than just about every casino in Reno... We have been here a few times..... The buffet is solid for a casino buffet. The casino is relatively clean as well considering how crowded it gets... The hotel looks nice and the pool area is good during the hot... More

Definitely one of the nicer casinos in the area. Hard getting a seat at the tables sometimes, but nice, clean atmosphere!

Enjoyed a great two days over New Years at Thunder Valley Casino. High energy. BUSY! The slots paid out quite well. Their Players Club membership is very fair; we received $50 free play. Good food options. The bars are also excellent. Atmosphere felt like "Vegas". We will be back. We stayed in our RV, plenty of free (up to 3... More

Wife and I have recently started going to bingo here every few weeks or so and have had a lot of fun. The staff is always very courteous and willing to help or answer any questions one might have. Just wish they had cocktail service inside the hall. Having to run to get a beer or two at the short... More

This is a local casino that we enjoy visiting. Always good food in the Illusions bar and plenty of machines to play. Bartenders are a bit slow every time we go. The rooms are nice if you can get a deal! The pool is closed most of the time though. Not really a resort, like they say.
