If you’re in the Seattle area and looking for things to do, Snoqualmie Casino might be the destination spot for you. Having opened their doors on November 6, 2008 by the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, Snoqualmie Casino has a variety of games, restaurants, a brand new sportsbook, and much more for guests to enjoy. Let’s take a look at everything Snoqualmie Casino has to offer.
Snoqualmie Casino Gaming: Slot Machines and Table Games
Snoqualmie Casino has over 1,700 slot machines with many of the newest themes available to slot enthusiasts. Bets can be as low as a single penny all the way up to $20 a deal. Video slot machines dominate the floor and if you’re looking for bigger pay, look for machines that have player progressives.
For slot players, they also offer a fully enclosed, non-smoking area near the Falls Buffet and Cafe Deli restaurant.
Want to try your luck at the tables? There are 60 gaming tables with classic games like blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and craps. Want to try something a little different? Snoqualmie Casino also offers Ultimate Texas Hold Em’, Fortune PaiGow, Spanish 21, Chase The Flush, and I Luv Suits. Minimum bets can be as low as $5 during less busy times and maximum bets go as high as $1,000.
Various table games on the floor also have high payout side bets, so if you’re feeling lucky, give that a try! If you’re looking for a more private setting with higher limits, try Snoqualmie’s private gaming room. They regularly staff both blackjack and baccarat, but you’ll need to work with either a casino host or floor supervisor to set up a dealer team for the craps game. Note, for craps, there will likely be an expected minimum play amount for them to open the table.
Snoqualmie Casino Sportsbook
With Washington State more recently making sports betting legal, Snoqualmie Casino was one of the first to offer this option and was the first to have a sports betting app. Before we go any further, know that the law in Washington State is that one must be present on the casino grounds to actually place a bet. So even with the app, you won’t be able to make bets sitting at a restaurant in Bellevue.
The Sportsbook at Snoqualmie is located in the far northwest corner of the casino floor when entering from the elevators. It’s a small space with a few tables and chairs, along with a bar setup, and of course a book window. The Sportsbook window is only staffed on Monday – Friday 9:00 AM – 11:00 PM and Saturday and Sunday from 7:00 AM – 11:00 PM but they have 12 betting kiosks scattered throughout the casino floor available 24/7.
The Crescent Club
Snoqualmie Casino’s player’s club is called Crescent Club. Like most casinos, they have different tiers that are earned based on play levels that provide players with different levels of complementaries.
Crescent Club Tiers:
- Premier (2,500+ base points)
- Elite (15,000+ base points)
- Gold (50,000+ base points)
- Valor (Active duty military and veterans)
Membership at the Crescent Club is free for all. Here’s an overview of Snoqualmie’s player’s club perks.

Snoqualmie Casino Buffet and Restaurants
Snoqualmie Casino has some of the best restaurants in the area. With a wide variety of selection, price ranges, and ambiance, there’s something for everyone. Here’s a quick rundown of all your dining choices.
By far the best casino buffet in Washington State, let’s say I’ve been here more than a few times over the years. They offer a lunch buffet on weekdays, a brunch buffet on weekends, and a daily prime rib dinner buffet with some nights where you can add Dungeness crab by the pound. The buffet offers patrons a carving station, salad bar, various Asian foods with made-to-order stir fry, Italian, American, seafood, and a full dessert bar.
Vista Prime Steaks & Seafood
Vista is Snoqualmie Casino’s main fine dining restaurant. Scenic views accompanied by live music make this a great spot for a higher-end meal. The menu features a wide range of small plates, soups, and salads (tableside Caesar salad for two is a must), fresh seafood, and top-flight meats. Finish that off with tableside prepared bananas foster dessert for two. They also have a full bar, as well as over 100 wines to choose from.
12 Moons | Asian. Sushi. Noodles
12 Moons brings a wide range of different Asian cuisines into the mix. The menu boasts a wide range of both traditional and contemporary sushi rolls, as well as nigiri and sashimi. If you’re having difficulty deciding, let the chef choose for you and go with omakase (chef’s choice). Beyond sushi, there are plenty of soups, noodles (from the wok), tonkatsu, donburi, and other small plates to choose from.
Snoqualmie Cafe & Deli
This is not your ordinary casino deli. The food is legit and made with quality here. I’ve never had a bad quick bite and it’s often my go-to if I’m out with friends on the weekend. The best part? They’re open 24/7. They have breakfast, appetizers, a big selection of burgers and sandwiches, pizzas, and even a 12s fanbuger challenge!
Although Snoqualmie Casino offers free drip coffee, if you’re in the mood for something a bit more fresh or special made, head on over to Drip. They offer coffees, teas, and a variety of baked goods.
Entertainment at the Casino
Snoqualmie Casino offers various entertainment options each month. You can catch a show in their 11,000 square foot ballroom, from local and smaller acts to big headlining names. In the summer, they will put on outdoor shows as well. Check out the entertainment calendar here.
Snoqualmie Casino Hotel and Expansion:
Snoqualmie Casino has started a huge expansion project where they will be adding a new hotel, expanded gaming floor, destination spa, 2,000-seat entertainment and convention center, parking structure, and two signature restaurants with a third to open later. At the moment, they project all of this to be completed by early 2025.
If you’re looking to visit Snoqualmie and stay and play for a night or two, you’ll want to find some accommodations nearby. Here are three spots within a 15-minute drive from Snoqualmie.
Salish Lodge & Spa:
Salish is one of the area’s premier hotel, resort, and spa destinations. Located right at the 268-foot waterfall known as Snoqualmie Falls, the scenery is breathtaking and if you’re looking for serene and elegant, this is your place. They have a full spa menu, three dining options, and a host of other amenities for their guests.
Sunset Chalet at Lake Alice:
If you’re looking for more of a private spot, check out Sunset Chalet at Lake Alice. You’ll have 100 feet of private waterfront on this non-motorized boating lake. There are wineries, breweries, hiking trails, and two golf courses nearby if you’re looking for something to do besides hitting up the casino. The cottage sleeps two people and is roughly 560 square feet.
Snoqualmie Inn by Hotel America:
If you’re looking for something more economical and simple, Snoqualmie Inn is for you. Clean rooms with free wifi, complimentary breakfast, and free parking.
