Edgewater Casino Vancouver

We were walking through Yaletown to the seawall and towards the Science Centre and came upon this casino.  Convenient location for those living downtown and easy to get to by foot.  Seems like they have a parking lot.

We went in and there were a few tables open and people playing on an early afternoon.  I walked around and didn’t get itching fingers so didn’t play.   The slot machine area isn’t very big but more people seemed to be playing those than the table games.

They have free hot water and tea.  Also nice with clean washrooms if you need to use while walking along the seawall.  It looked like a decent eating area too with Chinese food selections.  They advertise their daily food specials.  If I lived in the area, would get a players card for specials.

Edgewater Casino Vancouver

First…I don’t gamble…so can’t review that aspect. However, I can review the overall service. I took my mom and aunt…twin 90-year-olds, to spend a day working the slots. I had to hang around killing many hours at the restaurant,  bar and just sitting in chairs with my Ipad.

I kept an eye on the two ladies from afar for most of the day. I witnessed unbelievable service given to them by ALL the employees. I also personally experienced the same fantastic service and attitude from ALL staff. I was very pleased with the attitude and show of care and empathy to the experience that I and my mother/aunt were receiving. Well Done Edgewater.

My mom and aunt requested to go again the next day. I felt comfortable leaving them there the next day for a few hours while I ran errands

Wasn’t here to gamble, but rather for a 3day  festival in March. I was really looking forward to the buffet but I guess Vegas spoiled me, as well as Xmas eve dinners at Riverrock. The food, to me was just barely edible. For dinner: ham and roast beef, plus self serve ice cream being the better offerings. Soups were decent.
Brunch time: typical steamed egg, turkey sausage, bacon and small pieces of waffle, cup Iogo yogurt etc. The dinner was 19 and brunch 13, a further discount is applied if you have the Casino encore card (same as the one from River rock).
Pastry dessert is similar to the more “modest” offerings one would find at superstore =(

In general the staff are just modestly well trained, a friend who checked in earlier asked to have their room with us. Later when we checked in they were clueless.
I also asked where I could access a vending machine that sold juice and no one knew (it’s on the hotel suite floors) and directed me to the bar instead. I don’t gamble but, some of the dealers at the tables looked like they were high school students, banks don’t even hire such immature looking staff so….
To top it off, they didn’t offer late check outs at the time we were there..
It’s no more than a 3star hotel, budget but new-ish.
Mental note, for the future, make a reservation and eat in or take out from the 2nd floor restaurant, call early to confirm rooms, arrive earlier to get a better parking spot, request late check out beforehand.

The Casino is to the left and the Hotel is to the right as you step inside.  I was at the hotel so why not walk around and see how the Vancouverites in North Burnaby likes to lose their cash.

It’s no Vegas but you go to hand it to them.  They packed in more one arm bandits and card tables than you can imagine – and there is at least an Asian person squatting at each possible seat!  Just like Vancouver’s property market!  L O L !!!!!!!   :))

There’s a couple of floors of entertainment and a buffet for lunch and dinner.  Prices are nice ($20 for dinner) but I did not partake in the gorge-fest.  I try to stay away from bacteria haven!

The locals that come out are primarily Asians or retirees.  If you are an out of towner, there are better casinos around.  I’d only come here if you were staying at the hotel.

Came in to play a few slots. Very small casino but also very clean and the people working there were friendly. Like I believe all casinos in Canada, it is 100% smoke free. Coming from Oregon, this was really odd at first just in that I expected to smell like smoke after being here but didn’t, it was a nice change!

Located next to Stadium it’s a good place, opened 24/7 to grab a decent burger or pretty yummy bbq duck on rice after a game of Blackjack.

Majority of games are slots, but they of course have black jack, craps etc as well. Would have stayed longer, but my budget didn’t allow that, haha.

Construction continues on the massive new Vancouver casino, parq Vancouver, and its two luxury JW Marriott hotels next to BC Place.

The Globe and Mail reported in January 2017 that the casino will be home to the following restaurants:

Honey Salt – Farm-to-table restaurant showcasing B.C. ingredients
Bao Yu – upscale Chinese cuisine
MKT East – Asian food hall inspired by Singapore night markets
BC Kitchen – upscale tavern
The Victor – steak and seafood restaurant
The Sky Bar – rooftop lounge
Whiskey Tea Lounge – tea lounge by day, whiskey bar by night
Casino Centre Bar and Lounge – cocktail lounge on gaming floor

The casino is being developed by Las Vegas-based Paragon.

I have been to the Edgewater Casino several times, but this will be my last visit. When it first opened, there was a winners wall , replete with pictures of guests that had won large jack pots. We are talking about tens of thousands of dollars. That winners wall has long gone. I don’t wish to seem like a sore loser, as I know the slots are in the casino’s favour , but, come on ! You now can easily go through hundreds of dollars very quickly even betting in small amounts. On my last visit, like the ones before, I rarely, if ever, see anyone win . I spent this time playing and observing for several hours. Although it was very busy , I did not witness one hand pay. I chatted to several people who were playing with large bets, over 4 dollars a spin. The return hits were either less than the bet or what little money they won was all gone again in 2 or three spins.The ones that were getting bonus rounds never received more than an 80 dollar return. The casino was full of people shaking there heads. The returns on your bets are very poor, the worst I have seen in any casino I have attended in North America. I have a feeling I am not the only one not returning.

I love this casino. It’s a big casino with a great selection of games, drinks ( including the nice wine bar upstairs ) . Awesome patios to sit on to have smokes. Lots of parking that’s close. Prompt enough service.
1-The reason I am giving it 3 stars :
Why are 90% of the people in there Asian ? The machines even speak Chinese. I do not feel as if though I am in canada when I’m here.
2- roulette :
outside bets on video roulette should be 1$
3-video roulette move soooo slow
4- it’s annoying to gamble there on Friday / Saturdays because the restaurant / bar attached gets out of control and the whole casino turns into a nightclub. Young drunk people everywhere. Extremely loud music and people screaming -not relaxing/enjoyable to be around when you come to gamble.
5- drinks are pretty expensive. Cheapest glass of wine is 13$ ?
