The view from outside--note the sign banning minors from the casino, an early precursor of "Project 21." Restored photo of bingo players at the Horseshoe. This magazine cover has a picture of the famous $1 million display, along with some interested info. It may have been Jack Binion's personal copy.

Moe Dalitz's gun, which looks to be an ornate showpiece, as opposed to the all-business weapons of Binion and Moss. Players wanting to take a break might visit the casino snackbar. One of the dealers plies his trade at the 2002 World Series of Poker.
