Gaming room move OK’d by city

On Tuesday night the Grass Valley City Council passed an ordinance allowing a gaming room in the ground floor of the Gold Miners Inn- Holiday Inn Express.

By a uanimous vote, it approved the transfer of a gaming license previously held by the Gold Rush Casino on 106 E. Main Street to the retail space at the hotel on 115 Bank Street.

San Jose-based Full Rack Entertainment bought the Gold Rush after it closed in January and plans to open the Towers Casino and Cardroom sometime this spring.

Officials with the company say the gaming license still needs approval from the state of California.

Holiday Inn owner Nick Hayhurst Sr., said adding the gaming room as a tenant in its retail space is a boon for visitors.

“It gives our guests something to do at night and we think it can really be a draw,” Hayhurst said.
