Golden Slot Club   (Golden West)


195

to 1958


The Fuller Index shows the Golden Slot Club opening on January 1, 1956 and closing on  February 17, 1958.  Other sources have it opening in 1955.

In a newspaper article from 1961 it notes the dates as follows:

The Nevada Supreme Court has upheld a judgment of a Clark County District Court in favor of Cecil Lynch for $2,000 paid on ''null and void "chattel mortgages on the Golden Slot Club he bought in 1956 at a tax sale.

Harry Gordon of Las Vegas appealed the lower court decision by Dist. Judge John C. Mobray, which ordered him to repay the $2,000 to Lynch.

Gordon in 1955 made loans of $13,000 to the Golden Slot Club. Gordon was given two promissory notes, with two chattel mortgages as security for the loan.

Lynch now {1961} operates the C & L Enterprises and the Ace Liquor Inc,, in Las Vegas.

The Golden Slot Club was licensed for both slots and blackjack.

Although Lynch bought the club in 1956 at a tax sale, another news article has him being approved on Nov 22, 1957 for a gambling license for the Golden Slot Club. He may have been operating the club in the previous years under another license.

The location was later renamed Cecil Lynch's Fortune Club and used the same big slot machine front.

 The half block of Fremont Street from 20 to 32 Fremont has been home to quite a few important and recognizable businesses in the past. The little alley between the Las Vegas Club and the Golden Goose sign is part of the original layout of Las Vegas as surveyed in 1905.
