In an article published June 18, 1976 Allan D. Sachs
was approved for five 21 (blackjack) games, three poker tables
and 203 slot machines at the Sundance West Casino.

Very few pictures of Sundance West exist and I am
very fortunate to be able to share this
wonderful photograph taken by photographer David Lee Guss.

These were all the
chips issued for the
Sundance West Casino.



They are all 1976 issues.


In 1981, Herb Pastor acquired the Sundance West Casino owned by Al Sachs and changed it to Sassy Sally’s Casino.
Al Sachs had been named the General Manager of the old Aladdin Hotel and Casino on the strip thereby losing some interest in operating the Sundance West.

Sally was the name of Herb Pastor's kids' babysitter and, yes, according to Pastor, she was indeed sassy!

Pastor was expanding his gambling operations at the time and also acquired what was then known as the 20th Century Hotel and Casino on Tropicana (now known as Hooters). He changed it’s name and format to the Treasury Hotel and Casino and operated it for a couple of years before selling it to Gerald Philbin, a defensive lineman on Joe Namath's Baltimore Colts Superbowl Championship Team of 1969. Since then, the location has changed ownership over and over.

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.  I took the picture below in October 2013 and the list shows some of the businesses that took up residence in this tiny patch over the years.
