Eldorado Casino Shreveport is part of the biggest collection of casinos in the state. Shreveport is famed for its riverboat casinos, some of which sail gracefully up and down the Red River, while some are stationary. Eldorado Casino is one of the stationary riverboats casinos, and one of the most highly acclaimed Shreveport hotel casinos. It is Native American owned and is open 24 hours a day.
Eldorado Casino Shreveport boasts 23,000 square feet of gaming space, which holds more than 1,500 gaming machines, as well as more than 60 table and poker games. These games include craps, black jack, mini-baccarat and roulette. It’s poker, however, where the Eldorado Resort Casino really holds its own. The casino offers a greater variety of styles of poker than most other casinos in the state, including Caribbean Stud Poker and Flop Poker. The old favorites like Texas Hold ‘Em, of course, are also featured. Among the most exciting Eldorado Casino events are the poker tournaments, which take place at least three times a week.
Many casino guests choose to stay at the Eldorado Resort Casino Hotel. There are more than 400 rooms to choose from, and the hotel includes a spa and a gift shop. The most upscale rooms come complete with a marble entry way, oversized bathtub, and wet bar, among other amenities. For those wanting to step out of the Eldorado Casino Shreveport into a cozy lounge, cafe or dining room, the resort has a dazzling selection of venues. The restaurant provides the best in fine dining, while a choice of two cafes and a buffet offer a more casual experience. There are also banquet facilities, where dinner is served in a 500-seat ballroom.
Louisiana is famous for its festive events (Mardi Gras anyone?) and buzzing nightlife. Although any city in the state has a hard time living up to the excitement of New Orleans, Eldorado Casino events have the same all-night spirit. Winners at the tables can celebrate their windfall by dancing the night away in the resort’s Celebrity Lounge or swinging their hips to the resort’s weekly blues jam. Other Eldorado Casino events include karaoke sessions, music concerts, and evenings dedicated to fine wine. In October, the State Fair of Louisiana comes to Shreveport. One of the biggest fairs in North America, it features a livestock show, a carnival and a Queen’s pageant.
Many people choose the Eldorado Casino because it is in the heart of the action. Shreveport is also a convenient journey away for residents of Texas and Arkansas. Many visitors to Eldorado Casino also check out the many other casinos in Shreveport, including Sam’s Town, a Las Vegas-style casino resort. The city has plenty of sights and attractions aside from gambling, including the Sci Port Discovery Center, which features hundreds of interactive experiences and an IMAX Dome Theater. For nature lovers, there are plenty of beauty spots like the Gardens of the Americas, the largest rose garden in the US. Golf and fishing are also popular outdoor activities in Shreveport. And if Shreveport isn’t enough for you, you can always cross the Red River to Shreveport’s sister city, Bossier, a great holiday and gambling destination in its own right.
