Eat, drink, play, relax or party – whatever you’re into, the Eureka Casino Resort in Mesquite, Nevada, has it all. Just a half-hour’s drive south of St. George, Eureka welcomes locals and visitors this summer with a Fourth of July extravaganza and the chance to become $1 million richer.
Eureka’s annual Independence Day tradition continues with the best fireworks show in southeastern Nevada. The “Rockets Over the Red Mesa” spectacular will be held July 4 at 9 p.m. PDT. Launching from the mesa behind the resort, the display will be synchronized with a stirring patriotic program broadcast via Nevada Public Radio (88.1 FM).
Eureka spokesperson Ashleigh Mark said thousands of people attend the show each year, coming not only from Mesquite but throughout the region to make the resort their destination for a fun-filled Fourth of July weekend.
Produced by Las Vegas Display Fireworks Inc., “Rockets Over the Red Mesa” is always a dazzling show, and this year will be no exception. The display is designed for great viewing from across the city as well as the Eureka parking lots. Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and tailgate.
“I’ve seen a lot of fireworks over the years, including stadium shows,” longtime Mesquite resident Jon Hoover said. “Eureka‘s show is so much better because you’re up close, and the background of the mesa is breathtaking.”
If you’d prefer to come early, stop by the Town Square Buffet and enjoy all-American barbecue favorites from 4-8 p.m. Additionally, the casino is offering double points on all slot machines July 1-4.
July will also see the return of the Splash into Cash million-dollar slot and video poker tournament series. Starting July 1, any player who earns at least 1,000 points can qualify for a semifinal tournament. Participants must swipe their player’s card at the kiosk and print out a reservation, then bring it to VIP services to register for scheduled tournament times.
The video poker tournaments will be held July 15-17 and Aug. 12-14, while the slot tournaments are scheduled for July 29-31 and Aug. 26-28. Players have the opportunity to win cash, and the top 75 scorers from each tournament will move on to the finals in September. There’s a million dollars up for grabs by the player who qualifies for and wins both the final video poker and slot tournaments.
This is the second summer that Eureka has invited players to Splash into Cash. This year’s tournament features new, interactive machines with touchscreens and bonus features. Plus, at the end of each round, the machines display the player’s ranking.
“Our players love this format,” Mark said. “It mixes things up a little bit.”
Eureka always has exciting promotions and great reasons to visit. The 60-acre resort offers award-winning dining at Gregory’s Mesquite Grill and the Town Square Buffet along with an upscale casino featuring nearly 1,000 slots and video poker machines, plus a newly expanded William Hill sportsbook and live table games like blackjack, craps and roulette.
The resort was founded in 1997 by the Lee family and sold to its employees in 2015, becoming Nevada’s first 100% employee-owned casino. Eureka has consistently been named one of Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best Medium Workplaces” and a “Great Place to Work” certified company.
Eureka Casinos also operates the Rising Star Sports Ranch in Mesquite as well as The Brook, a casino in Seabrook, New Hampshire. The dedication of their hardworking employee-owners extends to each and every guest and the communities they serve.
