Bruno Pagni opened the Pastime Club in 1929 and in May of 1931 put in a 21 game and a poker game. In June he added a craps game then in June 1934 he added a pan game. In the mid 1930’s the Pastime operated with slots only. In 1942 the club was again licensed for a poker game and a 21 game.

In June 1944 the Pastime Club moved to 246 Sierra Street . The Sierra Street location was licensed for a 21 game, slots and poker.

The former Commercial Row location of the Pastime Club is now part of Harrah’s parking garage. The Sierra Street location is part of the Flamingo Hilton.
