Became Terrible's Hotel Casino

From Spinetti's Gaming: "Marketing for the resort touted that they offered a free shuttle service to the Las Vegas Strip. It mentioned the location being minutes away from the Las Vegas Convention Center and McCarran International Airport besides the strip as well. When it came to the casino, they noted it was large with a huge slot parlor with a sportsbook. According to an article in the Las Vegas Sun, there were 500 slot machines, nine table games and seven blackjack tables. 

With two restaurants and a lounge, the 400 room Continental was a unique venue. One of the eateries was a 24 hour place called Big Daddy’s Diner. Las Vegas lounge singing legend Cook E. Jarr even made appearances there. A tribute to Ed Sullivan from Steve Rossi also entertained audiences. In 1998, the casino ended up filing for bankruptcy and it was foreclosed on in 1999.
