Not that great if you smoke

Not very easy to access via vehicle, and no smoking is not good as you have to leave the building to smoke

this casino is pretty nice inside, nicer than you would expect for a local casino. the slots seem to pay out a lot less than true vegas slots, and the vlt machines are terrible. Still, the place has decent food and pretty good entertainment on their calendar it seems.

On Friday's they have a Prime Rib special. I had been before prior to the renovation of the restaurant and the prime rib had been very good. They have changed the format somewhat, you used to order the Prime Rib ($10.95), and it was brought to your table by a service person, on the recent visit they had a buffet... More

It's been a few years since I came to Yellowhead but went on a weekend afternoon recently. I remember the last time it was to volunteer and the room was nice and the food was good. This time I didn't eat here but the restaurants at the back were pretty empty. They have a large sign advertising the daily specials... More

This is my favorite casino in Edmonton.Its one of the biggest. Never too crowded like some of the others. Standard selection of games. Lots of slots and a fair amount of parking. The restaurant served a good meal. Nice people.

The Casino Yellowhead is one of the newer casinos in Edmonton. it has a very attractive entrance and lots of parking. The access to the casino leaves a bit to be desired, but not a huge barrier. The meals are affordable, its open late and with lots of luck, you can take home more than you brought.
