Casinos and Gaming
If you’re looking for entertainment in Vancouver, the city’s casinos are a sure bet. Along with gaming, you’ll find everything from live concerts and shows, to swanky lounges to upscale restaurants. So whether you’re feeling lucky or just want to a one-stop destination for the night, these spots are worth checking out.
Downtown Vancouver’s only casino, Edgewater Casino offers 600 exciting slots machines and 70 table games–including blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and poker. But the fun doesn’t stop there. The on-site Stadium Club is a great place to catch live concerts, tribute bands, and simulcast boxing matches. The casino’s two restaurants are great spots for a quick refueling, a relaxing drink, or catching a game on the big screen. Located right on the water, behind BC Place Stadium and Rogers Arena, you’ll also enjoy spectacular views across False Creek.
River Rock Casino
Located in nearby Richmond, River Rock Casino is so much more than just a place to play the tables. A four-star resort and casino, visitors are likely to be lured to River Rock by the biggest names in music and comedy that regularly grace the stage at the Show Theatre (think Gipsy Kings, Culture Club and Amy Schumer), and the free live entertainment at Lulu’s Lounge and Curve. On the gaming floor, you’ll find all your favourite table games, more than 1,100 slots, and a dedicated Poker room. If you win big, celebrate at the high-end Tramonto or Sea Harbour; if not, hit The Buffet or the food court. Not ready to head home? Retire to a room in one of the two hotels attached to the casino.
The thrill of live horse racing is unmistakable — from the enthusiastic cheers of the crowd to the fast- paced action on the track. And with the spectacular mountain backdrop to the action at Hastings Racecourse, a summer evening at the races is a lovely option. But even if there’s no live racing, Hastings is home to 600 slot machines on a gaming floor, as well as offering off-track betting for simulcast races around the globe.
