Seneca Niagara Casino opened in 2002, and its hotel, a 26-story building, opened December 2005. The casino is owned by the Seneca Nation Tribe which is a part of the larger Iroquois Confederacy. They are also owners of the Seneca Allegany Hotel and Casino and other properties around the New York Area. It’s a perfect stop for honeymooners at Niagara Falls, to do a little gambling — or to take a room here as well. The casino has a great deal of extras above and beyond the three thousand slot machines and one hundred table games on the gambling floor.
The slot and video poker machines vary from penny spins to $100 a pull. Progressives are widely available, and there is a High-Limit Slot area where the machines are $5 to $25 a spin. 46 different games are listed on their site. Those who prefer video poker will not be disappointed by the selection of poker machines with all of the popular games like Double Double Bonus and Triple Bonus Plus.
Table games are: Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Mini Baccarat, Caribbean Stud Poker, Let It Ride, Pai Gow Poker, 3 Card Poker, and Spanish 21. There is a large poker room on the first floor which spreads games of Texas Hold’em, Omaha and 7-Card Stud.
There’s no shortage of restaurants and cocktail lounges. There’s both a VIP lounge and a quiet corner for drinks, and dancing nightly at Club 101. For food? A great steakhouse in The Western Door, Asian cuisine and seafood at Koi, and La Cascata is fine Italian dining. If you want casual dining, you still have four places to choose from, whether it’s burgers, home-cooked chicken and pasta, omelets, noodles or a complete buffet. And still there are quick bites or desserts at 4 other spots.
Turtle Island, the name of the casino at Seneca Niagara, stands for the great turtle of Seneca mythology, on whose back the world lies.
Seneca Niagara is open 24 hours.
