We were all packed up to leave Calgary and needed to get some brunch. On the drive out we see several signs showing specials at the Elbow River Casino, no strings attached [unlike other casinos that require you to sign into a players reward program or some other hook] so we decided to stop in. I ordered the thai salmon,... More

Recently we were invited to the Elbow River Casino to help a friend celebrate her birthday. We arrived fairly early about 7pm. Even though we were told there was no reserved seating in the Bayou Bar for our group, we arrived to find half of the tables reserved...guess those rules only apply to some. After some 'discussion" with a Manager,... More

Not a flashy place by any means, the Cowboys Casino is more... More

While it is dark inside by current Las Vegas standards,this casino has plenty of slots, including video poker,blackjack,keeno machines. Also there are table... More

If you are coming from out of town as I did, you should avoid this casino. It is very old and run down. The people seem to be very depressed and there just is no vibe or excitment here. I would recommend the Stampede casino over this one if you plan on visiting one. The Stampede casino is new and... More

Went to the VLT sports lounge - were going to stay to watch a football game - left after 1 drink - waited on by Tonitha - a short brown haired rude, mean woman - who moved too quickly threw food and drinks at people - and upset everyone around us - left to go to the much more expensive... More
