Primm is located in the central part of the Mojave Desert at an elevation of about 2,600 feet. It sits near the northern edge of the Ivanpah Dry Lake Bed in the Ivanpah Valley.
The valley has mountain ridges on the west and east sides that rise more than 3,000 feet above the valley floor. A gas station was built in the area in the 1920s and it has an interesting history.
Primm benefitted from the development of I-15 and the use of air conditioning. The first large casino in town, Whiskey Pete's, opened in 1977. The community has evolved since then and has seen its ups and downs in recent decades.
Primm currently has a population of about one thousand residents. The only residences in Primm are the Desert Oasis Apartments, which are intended for employees of Afffinity Gaming and their families. Housing in the Las Vegas area starts about 30 miles north of Primm.
Primm is a popular stop for visitors coming from California. The casinos in the community are the first stop for gamblers entering Nevada before Las Vegas or the last stop before returning to California.
Primm’s gas stations and restaurants provide a needed stop for services in the otherwise barren high desert terrain.
There is also a lotto store on the California side of the border, which sells California State Lottery, Powerball, and Mega Millions tickets. This makes it a popular spot for Vegas area locals because lottery tickets are not sold in Nevada.
