Hastings Casino Vancouver

Neat experience watching horse races. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it’s a casual place and they have staff wandering around to answer questions and explain how to place bets.

Four of girls went for the first time and we had an amazing time. It was full moon and hot day, so the evening hour was spectacular. Great way to spend Friday night.

Had a blast with the family as a birthday activity. Everyone from kids to grandparents shared the excitement of the racing and enjoyed the beautiful sunny day.

Be cautious when you cash out and double check the counts if you’re gambling. That said the location is great and there’s a lot of variety, bar food is overpriced!!! for what you get. Shame it used to have value now It gives me the craps the next morning oh and live music, a DJ, and dancing. There’s some really great staff there and a few bad apples. Security there runs around like a bunch of high school thugs it’s quite pathetic and entertaining at times. Great patio action in the summer.

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!

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.

Nothing fancy but mostly new machines. Parking is limited so I would advise walking over.

On the edge of downtown by the stadiums. Has a small bar to watch a game and grab a drink.

The Edgewater Casino on Pacific Boulevard, close to BC Place is the only casino in downtown Vancouver, if one wishes do do some gambling for locals and visitors.

I am used to the smoke filled casinos in southern California. It was so pleasant to spend a few hours there and not come away smelling of smoke or have watery eyes or a soar throat! Drinking is in the bar only but it is available

Pretty cool casino and the only poker room with limit hold em in lower British Columbia.

The poker room has 4/8 limit and no limit games. There are blackjack tables and slot machines. They give good conversion rates on foreign currency as well,

The Delta that is part of the Grand Villa Casino complex was surprisingly stunning. I did not expect the hogh level of the hotel the lobby, meeting rooms, hotel rooms and the casino and restaurants defiantly exceeded exceptions.

The hotel can be a little difficult to get to if its your first time and parking is not the greatest but overall it is a great property with exceptional service.

Join many others at the racetrack and bet on your horse. Its exciting and you can book on the patio 4-6 seats and have some snacks while you’re waiting for your horse to come in.

Here is a little secret if you want to see a great view of Vancouver…go and sit up in the stands of Hastings Racecourse and feast your eyes on an amazing view of the North Shore. Go on a nice day.

For a fun few hours, go and chance it on a one arm bandit in the main hall and then head outside to bet on the races. Its fun and its a blast from the past…my grand dad used to come for years. I can see why he loves it.

Always a great way to spend a few hours with family and friends. A broad range of fans all in good spirits and looking for a bit of excitement. Good food and music and a wide open space. A variety of spots to watch the races and opportunities to get close to the beautiful horses. Fun for young and old and chance to maybe get dressed up and wear a fancy hat

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

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.

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.

The place looks like an abandoned factory, but that I couldn’t care less. If you’re interested in poker, this is not the place for you. Never in my life have I seen a poker room this poorly ran, and I have travelled quite a lot. They would rather have waiting lists of 60+ than to have dealers on standby. I was astonished when I went there for the first time and saw tons of empty table and a double digit waiting list. I had never seen this.

For tournaments it’s even worse, the very few tournaments they host have player caps. For example, their daily morning tournament has player cap of 27 players. If you don’t arrive an hour early you won’t be able to get in, but you’ll be able to sit at one of the dozens of empty table.

Generally free parking here unless there is a major even happening nearby (ie football game, hockey game, concert). The Bistro also has pretty good, clean food for a relatively good price.

Wasn’t here to gamble, but rather for a 3 day  festival in March.

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.
