Nevada Palace opened in July 1979, three months after Sam's Town, under the direction of casino veteran Gene Lucas and Los Angeles partners Rene Diaz, Dan Straub and Bill Gallagher.

A year later, Lucas was gone and the property was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. On July 31, 1980, creditors moved on the property and forced the 201-room hotel to close for a day and the casino to shut down for 10 months. (from Las Vegas Review Journal, February 29, 2008)
