If you win...
Chances are that, if you win it big in Tonopah and you are not a U.S. citizen your winnings will be subject to a 30% withholding tax from the Internal Revenue Service. That $10,000 slot winning can dwindle quite quickly if that is taken off the top. Not to worry though: you can reclaim your gambling winnings tax through a 1042-S form. You should get this from the casino so don't lose it — it is your starting ticket to getting your gambling winnings back.
There are a few casinos dotted around the town.
- 1 The World Famous Clown Motel, 521 N Main St (adjacent to the Tonopah cemetery), ☏ . A motel with a creepy clown theme. Definitely not for the faint of heart. From $36.
- 2 National 9 Inn, 720 N Main, ☏ . A simple budget inn, offers complimentary breakfast. From $50.
