I have helped many families moving to Omaha. Contact me if you have any questions about the Omaha area or need help buying a home.

Council Bluffs, one of the suburbs of Omaha, has several casinos. However, there are currently no casinos within Omaha city limits. This is due to state restrictions that have made most forms of gambling illegal.

But with easy access to Council Bluffs, many people in Omaha can still go quite frequently. Below is a list of a few casinos and their locations.

Harrah’s Casino

Harrah’s Casino is located off Interstate 29 inside of Council Bluffs. There are several different options for gaming, including slots, card tables, craps tables, and many more.

There are several restaurants to choose from, both casual and upscale. Also, Harrah’s holds outdoor concerts at Stir Concert Cove. It attracts well-known talent.

Ameristar Casino

Just down the road is Ameristar. They are a large casino and hotel that provide multiple gaming options.

They also offer dining and drink options, including a sports bar for people to watch their favorite teams.

It is located at 2200 River Rd Council Bluffs, IA 51501.

Horseshoe Casino

Just like Harrah’s and Ameristar, Horseshoe has everything you could ask for in a casino.

They have great restaurants and bars. They also host live entertainment and have well over 1500 slot machines.

They are located at 2701 23rd Ave Council Bluffs, IA 51501.

WarHorse Omaha

Even though the casino is still under construction, WarHorse Casino Omaha promises to offer visitors an exceptional gaming experience when it opens its doors in late 2024. 

The casino will feature over 1,300 slot machines, 20 table games, live and simulcast horse racing, and a sportsbook.

It will be the very first full-fledged casino in Omaha. In 2020, Nebraska voters changed the state’s constitution to legalize all forms of gambling in the state. 

In addition to gaming, the casino will have a vibrant nightlife scene with several bars and restaurants, including a steakhouse and a casual dining venue.

Prairie Flower Casino

Prairie Flower is a smaller casino that is located a mile south of Eppley Airfield in Carter Lake, IA. It is very close to downtown and north Omaha. It is very easily accessible off Highway 75/Interstate 480.

Prairie Flower has food and drink and has over 200 slot machines.
