The owner of Stateline Casino was William 'Bill' Smith, who started his business in 1926 as a service station. In 1931 when gambling was legalized in Nevada, Smith expanded his service station adding a hotel and casino. The hotel and casino straddled the official border between Nevada and Utah. For a long time there was a white line across the floor. A patron could eat on the Utah side then step over the line and gamble in Nevada.[1] It began business in 1931 when gambling became legal again in Nevada after being outlawed on October 1, 1910 at midnight.[2]
