Nevada gaming officials give blessing to new Indian Springs casino Richard N. Velotta, Las Vegas Review-Journal · April 10, 2020 at 12:06 am Indian Springs is one step closer to getting a casino. The state Gaming Control Board on Wednesday recommended approval of licensing for Herbst IS Holdings LLC for a casino in the small community bordering Creech Air Force Base 45 miles northwest of Las Vegas. The unanimous vote came in an unusual online meeting of the board allowed by Gov. Steve Sisolak’s emergency directive to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. If the licensing is approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission when it meets April 22, representatives of the Herbst Family Trust say they hope to open the new casino by Memorial Day.
