The Legendary Fremont Hotel and Casino Celebrates its 65th Anniversary

LAS VEGAS—The iconic Downtown Las Vegas destination – Fremont Hotel and Casino – is celebrating its 65th anniversary by offering gift giveaways, a $6,500 Hot Seat promotion and a festive lineup of themed cocktails on Friday, May 28 through Monday, May 31.

Fremont’s vibrant history began on May 18, 1956, when it opened as one of the first high-rise hotels in Las Vegas. Boyd Gaming assumed control of the property in 1985 when the Company purchased the Fremont and its sister property, the famous Stardust.

To celebrate 65 years of providing exciting gaming entertainment in the heart of the Fremont Street Experience, Fremont will offer the following promotions:
