Slots we played at Century Casino Edmonton

After leaving the blackjack table with a C$55 in profit, we tried the slots behind the dealer and began with Wild Panda and Pompeii. Next, we moved on to the IGT slot Rich Girl which boasted a 96% RTP and free spins feature. We closed out the night by having a go at Diamond Millions, but we didn’t win the jackpot.

How many slot machines does Century Casino Edmonton have?

Century Casino Edmonton boasts over 830 slot machines and that collection has continued to grow. It was only two years ago that the casino had just over 750 slots.

Do the slot machines accept coins?

No, the slot machines only accept banknotes and tickets.

Slot machine providers

  • Aristocrat
  • IGT
  • Konami

Local progressive jackpots

All of the Alberta progressive slot games are available which include Diamond Millions, Alberta Gold, Jackpot Junction, and American Original. More than a dozen players have won a jackpot worth more than C$1 million playing Diamond Millions.

Casino Games – 4/5

Century Casino Edmonton features more than 30 tables that support a variety of roulette, blackjack, baccarat and poker games.

Bet limits start at a reasonable C$5 but several high limit tables will suit the high rollers.

Game types

  • Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Baccarat

There are only three styles of casino games but over 30 tables to enjoy them on. Variants include Infinite Fortune Baccarat, Four Card Poker, and Ultimate Texas Hold’em with a progressive jackpot. You can play craps on several dedicated VLT machines located by the golden blackjack tables.

Betting limits

Table limits start at C$5, which is low for some games, like Blackjack, but a little high for others like roulette. Most tables were limited to C$100 maximum bets but we could see a C$2,000 limit on a blackjack table and C$12,000 on a high-limit baccarat table. This is as high as an Alberta casino can legally offer too.

Can anyone bet the highest limits or you need special VIP access?

No, every table is accessible to all players. If a seat is available, anyone can take it.

Century Casino Edmonton poker tournaments

Texas Hold’em poker tournaments are held every Tuesday and Thursday. There are 10 poker tables and the buy-ins can vary from C$40 to C$120.

Staff & Service – 5/5

With restaurants and bars that stay open late, loads of free and secure parking, and more than 20 non-smoking rooms for an overnight stay, Century Casino Edmonton boasts all the services you would ever need from a casino facility. It also helps that the staff during our visit were wonderfully pleasant.

Food & Drinks

Century Casino has a restaurant, a dedicated sports bar, and several smaller bars conveniently located around the casino. Mid City Grill is only open Thursday through Sunday but you can grab affordable food until midnight. The menu is full of casino favourites such as burgers, steaks, and sharable platters.

A burger sets you back about C$14 but you can also enjoy numerous food specials at a reduced cost if you’re a Winner’s Zone club member. The Century Sports Bar & Lounge also serves food which includes a range of meaty bites such as smoked brisket and pulled pork. You can also buy a 60oz jug of local and foreign beer.

  • Thursday to Sunday: 4 PM – 12 AM

Century Sports Bar & Lounge:

  • Seven days a week: 9:30 AM – 2 AM

While some Century casinos do offer a buffet, Century Casino Edmonton does not. However, if you’re staying in the hotel, you can enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast.


Century Casino looks after its driving guests with plenty of outdoor spaces surrounding the building and free secure, underground parking too.

An average night will cost you around C$135 and you’ll be able to access the casino in seconds. We stayed overnight in a Queen room which was pleasant but the room felt like it could cost a little less.

Both the hotel and casino are 100% non-smoking buildings. The designated smoking area is under the cover by the entrance to the hotel and casino.


Like any casino, there are a few noticeable security personnel patrolling but they’re far from distracting. The casino uses high-end cameras, and it appeared every corner of the facility was well covered.

Casino Atmosphere – 4/5

The modern design of the décor and the exceptional materials provide a distinctly premium feel. Tables and slots are perfectly placed, and the casino floor always has a buzz without ever seeming out of control. With a dedicated comedy club and event space, there is plenty to enjoy besides casino games.

Inside Century Casino Edmonton

We observed more than just the gaming tables and slots. Our observant eyes clocked the quality of the material as we analyzed the décor and design of the building. We also spent some time around the casino to get a feel for the surroundings.

Design experience

Century Casino Edmonton is modern and stylish, but the building doesn’t have any particular theme. The materials used are all of high quality and the timber around the gaming tables is regularly polished which shines under the lights, providing a luxurious feeling.

Are you allowed to take photos in Century Casino Edmonton?

Yes, but you can’t take any photos when you are in or around the gaming tables.

You’ll be told to put away your phone if it can be seen when you’re playing at the tables too.

Location and surroundings

You won’t get much of a view unless you like main roads, light rail, and residential buildings. However, you are only a 24-minute train ride or a 16-minute drive from downtown Edmonton where you can enjoy art galleries, festivals, and gorgeous modern architecture.

Do you need a passport to visit Century Casino Edmonton?

No, any form of government-issued photo ID will be acceptable. However, we do recommend using your passport if you’re travelling from abroad and don’t think your local ID will be accepted for any reason.


The Century Showroom plays host to a variety of live events including comedy shows, popular bands, DJs, and exciting tribute acts. Local comedy can also be enjoyed at the casino’s very own comedy club, Yuk Yuk.

House Rules (T&Cs) – 4/5

The house rules at Century Casino Edmonton are only briefly visible when entering the casino but that’s just because the rules are fairly self-explanatory, transparent and obvious. This casino is almost open 24 hours a day and you can enter for free. Century Casinos lets you take photos in most areas except the table gaming area.

When is Century Casino Edmonton open?

The casino is open between 9:30 AM and 4 AM between Sunday and Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, the casino is open until 5 AM. Slot machines will always be ready to play but table games have restricted hours and you’ll find more tables open during the late afternoon and early evening than you would in the morning.

Does Century Casino Edmonton charge entry?

No, entry into the casino is free.

Do you always need a reservation to play at Century Casino Edmonton?

A reservation is never needed unless you’re entering a specific poker tournament that requires a reservation.

Is membership required at Century Casino Edmonton?

No, you can visit as many times as you like without ever becoming a member. However, membership is free and there are several perks.

Dress code

Like most Alberta casinos, Century Casino Edmonton doesn’t enforce a particularly strict dress code. You can dress as smartly as you like or keep it casual – just make sure you don’t wear anything that would be deemed offensive or aggressive.

Ultimately, your entry is at the discretion of the casino, so we always think it’s best to dress like you would for a nice date.

Standout rules at Century Casino Edmonton

There won’t be any unwanted surprises at Century Casino Edmonton as the house rules are all fairly standard and in line with those at other casinos in Canada.

Player Feedback – 3.5/5

Century Casino Edmonton has been reviewed more than 3,000 times across Google and Tripadvisor and has achieved a ranking we think is a little unfair. Reading between the lines of all the reviews, it was clear to see an overwhelming number of fraudulent bad reviews.

Thankfully, those providing positive casino reviews are far more coherent and descriptive with their thoughts.

Century Casino Edmonton player reviews

Google – 4/5

Many Google reviewers commended the newly renovated sports bar, the standard of the table game dealers, and the high quality of the food. However, others felt the hotel rooms left little to be desired for the cost.

Tripadvisor – 3/5

Numerous reviewers noted the atmosphere feels highly active and electric but somehow isn’t crowded. The rating should be high as we could tell that the worst reviews were written for the sake of writing a bad review.

Most common issues

  • Expensive hotel rooms

Century Casinos is a 31-year-old gaming company that operates 10 casinos across the US and Canada while also operating several casinos for TUI Cruises and owning a share of Casinos Poland. This incredibly reputable and successful organization counts Century Casino Edmonton among its operations.
