Local Casinos Found in Edmonton

Welcome to Las YEGas! If you didn't know, YEG is the code for Edmonton International Airport and we are very bad at puns. That was quite a good one, though. Go on, admit it. 

Okay, so Edmonton is not quite the bright lights of Sin City, but it still has an awful lot of offer gamblers. 

Edmonton Land Based Casino Operators

There are a number of high-quality casino operators in Edmonton, including:

  • PURE Canadian Gaming: A very well-established company who have been operating casinos in Canada since the 1970s. 
  • Century Casino Inc: Smart operators that have 15 casinos in total in partnership with VICI Properties. 
  • Gateway Casinos & Entertainment: Big hitter with more than 30 casinos across North America.

Edmonton Casino Resorts

Las YEGas (sorry, we'll stop that now) has a surprisingly large number of casinos. They include: 

  • Pure Casino Edmonton - Another one of the PURE group's excellent casinos in Alberta.
  • Century Casino - A small casino but one that hits hard with an excellent racebook attached.
  • Grand Villa Casino - Outstanding boutique casino in the ICE District of Edmonton that's brilliant for a night out.

More Than Gambling

While Edmonton is a great place to gamble, it's probably fair to say it's known for other things. That means there are plenty other reasons to visit as well. 

  • Hockey: Edmonton is hockey crazy, and there is no other way to describe it. The Oilers were obscenely successful in the 1980s with Wayne Gretzky in their team and they are still one of the top teams in the NHL today with a brand new arena.
  • Festival City: Edmonton is known as the "Festival City" and hosts a variety of festivals throughout the year. The most famous of these is the Edmonton Fringe Festival, one of the largest and longest-running fringe theater festivals in the world. Other popular festivals include the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Edmonton International Film Festival, and Ice on Whyte Festival.
  • Scenic Location: The city's location provides access to outdoor recreational activities and stunning natural landscapes. Edmonton is located on the North Saskatchewan River in Central Alberta and is known for its scenic river valley and parkland.

Important Considerations

The legal gambling age in Edmonton is actually just 18, and that includes gambling in person in casinos. However, always bear in mind that specific establishments may have their own rules so check before you travel.
