Casino Niagara is a two-floor casino that has been one of the top attractions for Niagara Tourism since 1996. Located in the centre of downtown Niagara Falls at 5705 Falls Avenue, this casino provides easy access to hotels, restaurants and, of course, the mighty falls themselves.

Here are all the amazing attractions the casino has to offer year-round:

This is your go-to location for slots and video poker games, including over 350 progressive slot machines. Betting denominations range from pennies to $5, so they’re perfect for beginners.

Poker: Those looking to bet larger sums can head to the second floor for table games and poker. Casino Niagara is the only place in Niagara Falls where you can play poker, so plan accordingly if you want to flex your poker skills.

The Poker Room is open 24 hours a day and features a grand view of the falls and 26 poker tables, including Three Card Poker or Texas Hold’em.

Tables are open to high and low bets, so you can join in regardless of your budget, however the Texas Hold’em jackpot regularly grows to six figures.

Interactive Gaming: If you’re in the mood to game, head to LEV2L Sports Bar & Entertainment on the second floor of Casino Niagara.

Take a break with one of three interactive gaming opportunities—Golden Tee golfing, Silver Strike bowling, and PowerPutt mini-golfing.  

These games range from the casual to prize play, so you can keep your winning streak going even after you’ve left the casino floor.
