Reno/Sparks' Nugget Casino Resort

Affiliates of Global Gaming & Hospitality (GGH) and Husky Finance are the owners of the Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, Nevada. 

The owners have big plans for the property, which consists of more than 1,300 guest rooms, 110,000 square feet of meeting space, eight restaurants, a year round atrium swimming pool and many other guest amenities. Plans include investing up to $50 million dollars into the property to update and renovate the Nugget's casino floor, hotel rooms, restaurants, convention space, exterior and signage. The additions of Gilley’s Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-b-que, William Hills Sports Book and the Tailgate Deli have been successful at continuing to meet the high quality service and expectations people have for the Nugget.

The Nugget now operates under the leadership of President and CEO, Carlton Geer. Mr. Geer is also co-owner and managing partner of GGH, an experienced private casino management and merchant advisory firm with offices in Las Vegas, New York City and Atlantic City.

The Nugget was formerly family-owned and operated by John Ascuaga, his daughter Michonne Ascuaga, and son, Stephen Ascuaga. "We appreciate the Ascuaga family's support and assistance during this transition," said Geer. "They have been a major contributor to the community in all respects. Over a period of 58 years, they built a significant gaming resort that will be enduring." Geer says he sees tremendous potential for the Nugget in the Reno/Sparks market. "The combination of its great access, superb physical structure, a strong legacy and appropriate repositioning capital will enable the Nugget to compete more effectively in Northern Nevada in the future," said Geer.

The Nugget's long-standing community programs, such as providing Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners at St. Vincent's Dining Room will continue. In addition, the Nugget's premier special events, like the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off and Star Spangled Sparks, will also carry on.

A Company History

For more than half a century, the Nugget and Northern Nevada have been inextricably linked. In fact, the great growth and evolution of the Nugget Casino Resort —originally a 60-seat coffee shop with only a handful of slot machines—has been a mirror image of the region's explosive expansion. Not content to rest on its storied history, the Nugget continues to make changes and upgrades to better serve both regional and local customers.

Cap and Diploma

Community

Every year since 1955, the Nugget has provided free Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to an area shelter, and since 1961 the Nugget and St. Vincent’s have worked diligently to make sure that less fortunate folks enjoy a great holiday meal.
The food served at St. Vincent’s is the same high-quality food served to casino guests at the Thanksgiving Buffet at the Nugget Casino Resort.
