Established in 1979 the Searchlight Nugget Casino was a dream come true for Warren and Verlie Doing. After numerous successful business operations throughout rural Nevada, Searchlight became an instant home for the Doing family after purchasing and running Sandy’s Club in 1967. With the town growing and the need for a larger casino and restaurant, the plans for the Searchlight Nugget Casino were started. It took over a year and many different people coming through town and helping in the construction of the building.
Here we are 30 years later and still rocking and rolling. We are still family owned and ran. With 3-generations of the Doing family being involved in the day-to-day operations of the business. Miss.Verlie Doing is 87 and involved 7-days a week. You won’t be able to spend much time here without running in to her. Feel free to ask about one of her many crazy small town stories, through the years there has been many.
