Arizona casinos can be found in the state's southern region, with the Phoenix area being one of the best places to look. As is true of the other casinos in the state, the Phoenix casinos are mostly located on Native American land and are predominantly owned and operated by Indian tribes. At the Arizona Indian casinos, you can expect to find slot machines, video poker, and card tables. It's also common for Arizona casinos to have poker rooms and spacious bingo halls, and for those who want to stay close to the action, many of the casinos are attached to comfortable hotels.
There are more than two dozen major casinos in Arizona, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The Phoenix area has a bunch of good ones, and they include a few that are located in the nearby city of Scottsdale. In fact, Scottsdale is home to the most impressive casino hotel in the state, and that casino hotel is the luxurious Talking Stick Resort. This dynamic resort opened in 2010, and it has brought a whole new concept to the Arizona gambling scene. The Casino Arizona is the name of the casino at the Talking Stick Resort, and it is nothing short of impressive itself, offering 240,000 square feet of gaming space. More than 800 slot machines await visitors at the Casino Arizona Talking Stick Resort, as do more than 50 table games, among other things. When guests at the Talking Stick Resort aren't enjoying the casino, they can visit the resort's inviting spa, tee it up for a round of golf, and swim in the attractive outdoor pools.
For those who are interested in Arizona Indian casinos that are attached to hotels, two other Phoenix area offerings include the Harrah's Ak-Chin Hotel and Casino and the Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino (pictured). The former boasts a 40,000-square-foot casino, while the latter more than doubles that with its 100,000-square-foot Vegas-style casino. As for the hotel rooms at these casino hotels, they are relatively luxurious, affording guests a considerable amount of comfort and amenities. Restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues round out the facilities, and it's worth noting that both of these casinos are found next to world-class golf courses.
While the Phoenix area is home to some fine casinos, it isn't the only place in the state where gambling can enter the picture. In the southeastern part of the state, some time at a Tucson Arizona casino might be in the cards when looking for ways to stay busy. Tucson boasts a few excellent casino hotels of its own, and they include the Casino Del Sol. At the Casino Del Sol, the 1,300 slots and the blackjack and poker tables can be enjoyed around the clock, and you might keep an eye on the schedule at the 600-seat Bingo hall. Also worth keeping an eye on is the schedule of events for the hotel's 5,000-seat amphitheater. As is true of the other Arizona Indian casinos that feature hotels, the Casino Del Sol offers live entertainment on a regular basis.
Another Tucson Arizona Casino that can be a great place to play and stay is the Desert Diamond Casino Hotel. You can play Bingo at the Desert Diamond Casino, see what's going on at the seventeen poker tables, take a seat at one of the more than 30 Blackjack tables, tempt their luck on the slot machines, or enjoy some Keno. Both of these Tucson Arizona casino hotels provide comfortable rooms that are nicely equipped.
These are just some of the Arizona casinos that you might keep in mind when looking to enjoy some gaming action, and there are many others that should also suffice. In Yuma, for example, those who are looking for things to do can always spend some time at the Quechan Casino Resort. This Yuma Arizona casino resort is chic, and among other things, if offers a thousand slots for visitors to enjoy.
