The WinnaVegas Casino Resort provides numerous games and amenities. Owned and operated by the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, the casino commenced business in 1992. Since that time, it has expanded to include many additional features within a single complex.
Visitors can access the site at 1500 330th Street, Sloan, Iowa 51055. It can be reached from Exit 127 on I-29. It stands just across the Missouri River from tribal lands in Nebraska and remains open for business on a 24 hour basis all year long.
The WinnaVegas Casino Resort offers gaming and promotions, an arcade, hotel accommodations, dining and entertainment.
Gaming and Promotions
The casino provides 54,353 square feet of gaming space. Extensive gaming and promotions available at the WinnaVegas Casino include slots, table games, a poker room, bingo, Class II bingo, and promotions.
The WinnaVegas Casino provides over 850 slots and video game machines. The company adds news games on a frequent basis in order to maintain currency. In addition to traditional three reel slot machines with pull down handles, it offers a number of themed and highly interactive video games. Players can select from a number of different minimum levels of play. Machines range from penny slots all the way up to a high stakes VIP section. Patrons by law must be 21 years of age or older to access the casino floor.
The casino provides 20 casino table games. These include Blackjack, Pai Gow, Mississippi Stud and Craps. There are also some electronic table games that involve the use of computerized Roulette stations. Players may sit around the dealer at a terminal that allows them to place wagers and see results of the roulette wheel spins.
WinnaVegas just recently added a new Poker Room with a number of tables. Guests can play poker there. One current promotion involves a free Poker Tournament held in the Poker Room at noon on Sundays. On Tuesday at 7 p.m., the casino offers a special “Bounty Hunter” Poker Tournament.
A room in the casino is dedicated to Bingo games. These occur nightly at 7 p.m., except for Sunday, when play starts at 5 p.m. Patrons can arrive an hour early and engage in a “warm up” session of bingo; during this period, people unfamiliar with the game can learn how to mark their cards with a special dauber.
Class II Bingo
The casino has qualified under Iowa law for a special Class II permit that allows it to offer electronic bingo machines to people 18 years of age or older. Since casino play is not permitted until age 21, this means that younger patrons can now play video game machines in a limited way at the resort. There is a special wing outside the main casino where 32 Class II machines allow patrons to play electronic bingo and highly interactive video games. Patrons must present a photo ID to a security guard in order to register and then can receive a wristband indicating permission to participate.
Visitors to the WinnaVegas Casino Resort can register for a free Club WINN Card that entitles them to participate in a number of promotions through the casino, including free play and competitions for special cash prizes. They have an opportunity to earn free tickets to attend WinnaVegas shows. Card holders also receive discounts on items purchased from the Flower Island Buffet and the River’s Edge Gift Shop.
Just off the Events Center and the casino floor, there is a large arcade area available to all ages of guests. It is open from 10 a.m. until midnight daily.

A luxury hotel is connected to the casino. It provides dine and play packages for guests starting at $109 per night. Some of the attractively decorated rooms contain hot tubs and fireplaces.
Guests enjoy access to all of the facilities in the complex, including a fitness center, the Arcade, the River’s Edge Gift Shop, dining facilities and a large indoor swimming pool containing three to five feet of water. The pool includes a spa, plus a locker room with showers. With the assistance of the front desk, patrons can use a handicapped chair lift to assist people with disabilities into the water. The hotel’s rules indicate that anyone under the age of 18 requires supervision in order to use the pool.
The resort operates three dining facilities: the Flowers Island Buffet, the Kasu Cafe and and events center concession. The Buffet maintains a daily Lunch Buffet between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. It serves breakfasts in a restaurant format daily, except for the weekend, when there is a regular Breakfast Buffet. Evening meals involve several themed Buffet style meals, including a Friday night all you can eat buffet special serving crab legs and prime rib for $18.99. The Flowers Island Buffet usually closes at 9 p.m., but remains open until 10 p.m. on Fridays.

The concessions at the event center serve sandwiches and a wide variety of snacks. Food can be purchased there between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. daily.
An events center with a number of meeting rooms forms part of the casino and hotel complex. It rents space for a variety of private events, including corporate meetings, conferences, weddings and wedding receptions. Periodically, the WinnaVegas Casino will conduct shows and live musical events at the center, too.
