Northlands Park

Northlands Park might not be the biggest Casino in Canada, or even in Alberta, but it certainly is one of the best and no doubt you’ve already heard rave reviews from everyone you know that’s tried it.

Located in Edmonton this gambling hub hosts a range of exciting activities, including horse racing and Slots. This isn’t your traditional Casino, however, so although you will find many gaming machines there are no Table games, meaning no Blackjack, no Baccarat and no Roulette and so on; but, if you’re a Slots fan then this is the Casino for you.

This is a great resort for those who like Casino gambling but want to combine it with some other activities, as the horse racing events here are among the best that Canada has to offer. Northlands Casino is even home to the Canadian Derby, which is one the biggest events in the Canadian horse racing calendar. Make sure you take in at least one race down by the track for an authentic, up-close experience.

The members of staff at Northlands Park are extremely knowledgeable and helpful in how the betting works, so even novices at the races will be able to fully enjoy their day out.

A Full Day Experience 

Northlands Park offers something different to the standard Canadian casino experience, and the fact that it ties in with horse racing broadens its appeal somewhat.

If you’re feeling hungry you’ll never be short of options at Northlands Park, and despite the lack of concessions there are several great ways to enjoy a meal, all whilst taking part in the gaming and betting experience. There’s a fine dining buffet, or if you prefer more casual sit-down experience there is Uplinks, a great restaurant that caters to the more classic tastes. There’s also the Casino Grill and Pizza 73, and you can enjoy pub style fare in the Casino Sports Lounge.

Should you really want to impress your guests, or enjoy a day and night out in style, the Northlands Park Suites offer an array of unique options. You can book one of 5 suites for staff function, fun night out, seasonal celebration, personal milestone or business event and entertain your guests in real style. Guests in the suites can choose from an array of add-on extras, including specially catered meals, behind the scenes tours, photos with the horses, winners’ circle entry and a private wagering ambassador. There’s also the opportunity to book a private slot or table games tournament to add an extra frisson of excitement to any event.

For something different to the usual casino and resort style gaming experience, Northlands Park is an excellent option, and it’s a must see for any avid gaming or horse racing enthusiasts whose in Alberta!
