Niagara Falls Casinos
When you plan a trip to Niagara Falls, the breathtaking waterfalls will surely be the focus of your trip, but after a ride on the Maid of the Mist and a few dozen photos, what else do you have in mind for your trip? You're not just going to stare at the water for a week, are you? There are plenty other area attractions besides just the famous falls. If you enjoy gambling, you may want to consider an excursion to one of the popular Niagara Falls casinos -- or perhaps even stay there for your visit. Here's an overview of the Niagara Falls casino scene.
Seneca Niagara Spa Hotel & Casino
This Niagara Falls Casino opened on the New York side of the falls in 2002, and features 82,000 square feet of gaming space. Try your luck at one of their 4200 slot machines or 100+ table games on the casino floor, including all the classics like blackjack, roulette, craps, and more. Seneca Niagara is currently the only Niagara Falls casino on the US side with live poker, offering Texas Hold'Em, Omaha, and 7-Card Stud.
You must be 21 or older to enter the casino, but guests of all ages are welcome at the hotel. When you stay at Seneca Niagara, you'll find luxurious accommodations at moderate prices. The hotel has enough dining options to satisfy any craving and any budget, from an all-you-can-eat buffet to a high-end steakhouse. Don't skip the spa -- services include massage treatments, body wraps, and salon services.
Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort
Fallsview Resort is one of two major Niagara Falls casinos on the Canadian side of the falls, and one of the largest casino floors in the world at 200,000 square feet. You'll find over 3000 slot machines in a sophisticated casino setting, along with all the favorite table games like baccarat, blackjack, craps, roulette, pai gow, and also some fun new twists on the old classics like blackjack switch and double attack blackjack.
You'll be hard pressed to find a hotel with better views than the Niagara Falls views you'll get from your window at the Niagara Fallsview Resort. In addition to a full service spa, the resort offers a state-of-the-art fitness center, shopping, golf, and over a dozen restaurants to choose from.
This huge Niagara Falls casino on the Canadian side offers 1500 slot machines, table games like blackjack, craps, roulette, and several other favorites, a sports book, a poker room, and plenty of tournaments. Casino Niagara is not a hotel, but with several restaurants, lounges, and live entertainment, it's easy to spend all day here.
In the US, you must be 21 to gamble, but across the border, the legal gambling (and drinking) age is 19, so younger gamblers should stick to the Canadian Niagara Falls Casinos. Good luck!
