The Sasquatch Casino is not the place for high-rollers, but it is great for a family-friendly gambling experience. On their games floor, you will find 186 slot machines that range from $0.01 up to $1 per payline. You will not find any table games or poker at this cozy casino, so if you want to try your hand at Blackjack or Craps, try another of Black Hawk’s casinos.
Fitting with the casino’s family-owned and family-friend vibe, there is also an arcade where those under 21 are welcome. This is a rarity in casinos and the Sasquatch Casino is the only place to offer this in Black Hawk. Here children can play Pac-Man, pinball machines, and racing games. The arcade is in full view from the casino floor and so parents can try their luck on the slots and keep an eye on their children at the same time.
Casino Loyalty Program
The Sasquatch Casino runs a rewards program called Club Ocean. Joining is free and once a member you earn points as you play slots. These points can be exchanged for free play or deals on food and drink in their casino restaurants. On Tuesdays, the casino also runs a deal called Diamond Tuesday. If you earn 25 points in the casino that day you will be awarded $20 free play, a free beer, and a free meal. Earn up to 100 points that day and you have the chance to win cash prizes.
The amount of points you earn each month determines which tier of the loyalty program you sit. There are four tiers with Black Tier being the highest, requiring 45,000 loyalty points earnt that month to qualify. The higher the tier you sit, the bigger the prizes, offers, and exclusive events you have access to.
Sports gambling has been made legal in Colorado as of 1st May 2020 and the Sasquatch Casino has had its master license approved, meaning it can legally offer onsite and online sports betting. The casino operators have recently partnered with International Game Technology PLC (IGT) to power their online and retail sportsbook via their PlaySports platform. IGT has formed partnerships with other online providers including FanDuel Sportsbook which is powered by IGT’s PlaySports platform. Although neither their retail sports betting services nor their online sportsbook has been released, we can expect to see them emerge soon.
Dining and Bars
There are two restaurants at the Sasquatch Casino, both with a casual vibe serving some of your favorite comfort foods for a reasonable price:
- Harry’s Steakhouse: Head here to grab a prime rib dinner for an incredible $4.99!
- Harry’s Grill & Pizza: Serving a selection of all-day breakfast items, burgers, and sandwiches. They also have their own Sasquatch pies and infamous pizzas which are a hit with the locals.
There is also a bar on-site that serves a range of alcoholic and soft drinks. They even have their very own Sasquatch Wheat Ale that is worth a try when visiting.
There is no option to play any of the Sasquatch Casino’s slots online as any form of online casino gambling for real money is illegal in Colorado. While online sports betting is now legal and the casino has secured a deal with IGT, there has yet to be any mobile sportsbook services rolled out. There may be a release of an online sportsbook for the casino in the future, but for now, you will have to try some of the state’s other legitimate sportsbook websites and mobile apps.
