Reno roulette players have at least 35 gaming wheels to enjoy their favorite game. While the local casinos don't devote a whole lot of floor space to spinning wheel games, their roulette is played at the most common limits and with standard Las Vegas rules. What you'll find is common double-zero games of roulette, though I can't promise you the establishments use the imprisonment rules found in Atlantic City and most of the Las Vegas, which gives double-zero roulette a more manageable 2.63% house edge instead of the traditional 5.26% edge for the house. You won't find much in the way of single-zero European roulette and its player-friendly 2.70% house edge.
Several of the casinos where you can enjoy roulette in town have names which are famous in the gambling industry: Circus Circus, Harrah's, Sands Regency. Operations like the Peppermill Resort and Club Cal Neva might not be as familiar to those who don't travel to Reno often, but all of the eleven establishments which offer roulette are medium-sized operations (by casino standards) that offer the full range of gambling options to players.
While it's not like Las Vegas in terms of selection, the Reno area offers a more complete vacation experience, because of its access to resorts in both summer and winter. In the summer, you can enjoy Lake Tahoe, Virginia Lake Park, The Truckee River Walk, Bartley Ranch Regional Park, the Animal Ark, the Sierra Safari Zoo, The Reno Fun Train, Sierra Sage Golf Course, LakeRidge Golf Course, Rosewood Lakes Golf Course, Wolf Run Golf Club, Brookside Golf Course, Arrowcreek, the Galina Creek Park, The Great Basin Adventure and the Ultimate Rush & Theme Park. In the winter, you'll be able to enjoy Galina Creek Park's cross-country skiing, Northstar Ski Resort, Mt. Rose Ski Resort, Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, Heavenly Mountain Resort (the largest), Kirkwood Mountain Resort, Sierra-at-Tahoe Ski Resort, and the famous Squaw Valley Ski Resort (home to the 1960 Winter Olympics).
Enjoy golf and lake fun by the day and roulette gambling at night during the summer, or ski until dark and enjoy roulette gaming by night in the winter. Here are the best places to enjoy gambling on the wheels in Reno, Nevada.

Reno Casinos without Roulette
Below is the list of 16 gambling establishments which have no roulette whatsoever. Most of these are local bars, restaurants, and hotels which have a tiny gaming space. These businesses tend to cater to slot machine gamblers who play machines tucked away in the corner while their friends and family buy groceries, pharmaceuticals, drinks, or meals. In the case of the Reno International Airport, people play the slots while they're waiting for a flight. Remember, these venues tend to have a high house edge and terrible odds for the better.
