Boulder City Podcast

Nevada's most interesting small town


Podcast With Joe DeSimone, Owner, Railroad Pass Casino

Joe DeSimone has been busy. He's got a new truck stop and the Bullet Train restaurant at the Railroad Pass Casino and a new hotel at his Pass Casino in downtown Henderson.

Today we sit down with Joe DeSimone, the owner of the Railroad Pass casino on the edge of Boulder City. He bought that property 10 years ago and has spent that time upgrading the casino, added hotels, truck stops and a new standalone restaurant, the Bullet Train. In the meantime, he bought a casino in downtown Henderson he renamed the Pass casino, and he’s also building a hotel there, the first for that neighborhood in Henderson. He was new to the casino business when he first started but he’s now ramping up the gaming options at both properties. He spoke with BC Podcast host Roger Gros at his office in Henderson in June.
