Sin City Casino To Invest $30 Million In... Bowling?

Las Vegas' next big venture isn't a multi-million dollar casino or even a gimmicky 500-item buffet or wacky wedding chapel, it's a mega bowling facility constructed specifically for championship events.

The Associated Press is reporting South Point Hotel and Casino has struck a 12-year deal with the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) to host events in a new $30 million bowling center. Construction on the 60-lane center should begin as early as May.

If all goes as planned, the new center should put Sin City back on top of the bowling event hosting game. That's good news for Las Vegas, but could potentially mean a tourism hit for Reno, Nevada. The Biggest Little City in the World currently hosts several annual bowling tournaments at the National Bowling Stadium, which is nicknamed the "Taj Mahal of tenpins." Fans of the 1996 slapstick comedy "Kingpin" would recognize the interior of Reno's center instantly.
