Open since 1979, this cozy casino, which features a central fireplace, makes for a good pit stop if you're driving by on U.S. 95 between Las Vegas and Laughlin or Lake Havasu. Long known as the Searchlight Nugget, the property was sold to Jett Gaming and remodeled as Terrible's Road House. The former owner, Verlie Doing, who was a prominent figure in Searchlight, died about six months after the sale.
