The Showboat Hotel Casino in Las Vegas opened in 1954. It was reported to be the first resort within Las Vegas’ city limits.
It was a favorite of pro sports such as bowling, roller derby, and pro wrestling. Its design of its Bingo parlor was award winning. Most locals streamed in for it’s $0.49 breakfast buffet.
Harrah’s entertainment bought Showboat in 1988 and then sold it in 2000. The Showboat name was not sold in the deal by Harrah’s, so the resort was renamed to Castaways in 2000. The Castaways didn’t last long and was imploded. Today, an empty lot stands at the location.
Of the three pins in this listing, 2 are yellow, have a happy face, say “Showboat” and “Have A Happy Day!”. They measure 1.75 inches across. They each have a sticker on back. One sticker has the phone number, but the other sticker is faded and un-readable.
The third pin features the Showboat Slot Club. It measures just under 3 inches across.
The age on these pins is unknown to me. I purchased them at an estate sale.
