Desert Diamond Casinos will auction old casino equipment from its interim West Valley casino. Although this does not include slot machines, it will include various goodies that other businesses or collectors may find useful.
Desert Diamond will sell over 200 items
The public auction precedes the opening of the official Desert Diamond Casinos West Valley casino in Glendale. The current 49,000 square foot casino served as an interim solution until the company completed construction of its permanent 75,000 square foot site. The latter being now complete, Desert Diamond is preparing to move its base of operations. As a result, many items in the Provisional Casino have to go.
The operator announced that no tables and casino machines will be for sale, but many other items, including signs, kiosks, speakers, lamps, cameras, decorative items and even a bar whole will be auctioned off. In total, Desert Diamond Casinos plans to sell over 200 items during the auction.
Anyone interested can register at LocalAuctions.com and bid online on any of the items. until September 19. Plus, people can preview items onsite next Monday before placing their final bids. The auction ends at 7 p.m. Monday.
An unusual auction
Chris Rushford, head of operations at LocalAuctions.com, confirmed that there will be no slot machines or gaming tables for sale. However, he also noted that there will be many other unique items that businesses and residents may be interested in acquiring. He noted that this auction is a rare event because the public does not often have the opportunity to participate in the bidding of genuine casino items from such a large organization.
I think this is an amazing opportunity for residents of the Valley to have the chance to purchase part of the first casino to open in Glendale.

As mentioned by Rushford, the West Valley casino was the first to open in the Californian city. As such, it holds sentimental value in the hearts of many local residents. The casino was opened by Desert Diamond Casinos in 2015 as an interim location until the main site was completed. Once Desert Diamond moves to its new location, the old one will be repurposed into storage.
Desert Diamond likes to be a visionary. Not only was it the first company to open a casino in Glendale, it was also the first to launch an online sportsbook in Arizona alongside Strive Gaming.
