Silver Sevens Hotel and Casino debuted in July with a ceremonial lighting of its signs as the highlight of the yearlong transition that included more than $5 million in renovations and upgrades. Originally built as the Continental Hotel and Casino in 1981, it was purchased by the Herbst family of Terrible Herbst in 1999 and renamed Terrible’s Hotel and Casino. After the property dismantled its Terrible’s marquee cowboy, the sign was sent to the Neon Museum to be included in its collection.
