I'm just curious what opinions people here have on what seem to be the three closest casinos to Seattle.

Tulalip - I've been here once, got absolutely destroyed, and it kind of skewed my view of the place. I go to school in Seattle and home is in Kent, so unless I hear amazing things about this place I'm probably not returning.

The real question is between Snohomish and Muckleshoot:

I've been to Snohomish a few times and always enjoy it, pretty classy and generally a fun place to hang out.

I've never been to Muckleshoot and didn't realize it's just 20 minutes away from where I live. All I know about this place is that they have the stupid "friendliest dealers in town" commercials. Anyone have something to add about them?

Tulalip - This one is closest to where I live. I like it because there are usually at least two craps tables open and up to four when it gets busy. Craps is $5 minimum and 10x odds, with one table at $10 min during busy times. I can't tell you much about other table games because I don't play any except mini-baccarat, and at Tulalip I've never seen a minimum below $25. It's a pretty good atmosphere and nothing wrong, but it is a long haul from Kent.

I assume you mean Snoqualmie. I like it there too. Quite a few of the dealers moved there from Muckleshoot. Craps is 1 to 4 tables and either $5 or $10 with 3/4/5 odds. Mini-baccarat usually has a $10 minimum which is more my speed.

I turned sour on Muckleshoot after I had a lousy experience trying to redeem comps. (A long story for another time perhaps.) It's a big place with two buildings - one non-smoking has one craps table and the other has six or seven, $5 or $10 with 2x odds. I never played anything else there. You should sheck it out.

Another one you might consider is Emerald Queen in Tacoma. I have not been there much because it is a long haul for me, but much closer to you than Tulalip and probably Snoqualmie.

Not to threadjack, but does anyone know if any of the seattle-area casinos offer BJ switch?

I've been only to the Silver Dollar and the Wizard's Casino. With all due respect to my namesake, I liked the Silver Dollar much better.

...the Wizard's Casino. With all due respect to my namesake,...

With a name like that, and WITH due respect to The Wiz, I wanted to check it out - at least virtually. I'm in NJ, so there's no chance I'll be visiting.

I went to Google, and entered Wizard's Casino, and before even searching, Google expanded it to Wizard's Casino Burien WA. I hit enter, and the first hit on the search results was for http://wizards-casino.com/, and it included a little Google map. I figure I'm on the right track.

That link goes to an online casino, with, apparently, no connection to the land-based casino. What the f---?
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

I forgot that I'll be up closer to Tulalip on Wednesday, so that's an option (I like the idea of 10x). If Muckleshoot only has 2x and not 3/4/5 I won't even be thinking about it, I like my come bets and anyone who doesn't follow 3/4/5 pisses me off. Yeah, I meant Snoqualmie, I'm bad at generalizing places and I rarely go east of 405.

Basically, Muckleshoot is only 2x?

Many of the small local cardrooms around here do not have websites (or at least do not have active websites)... the Casinocity.com website usually has some very basic info about them.

The three casinos mentioned earlier (Tulalip, Snoqualmie, and Muckleshoot) are all Tribal casinos and thus are allowed to be MUCH larger and they have the $ to throw into marketing.

Yes except they will allow you 'true odds' on points of 6 and 8. Meaning if you have a $5 line bet, and a 6 or 8 is established, they will let you press the line bet to $6 and then put $20 behind.

Google is not the only one to be fooled. here is another example. Maybe that "wizards-casino" web site bought a legitimate web site that used to be for the Burien casino.
