The Billy Barker Casino is a 9,000 square foot casino located in the heart of the small city of Quesnel. Quesnel is part of the Cariboo District of British Columbia located at the junction of Highway 97 and Highway 26 in central British Columbia, 660 km north of Vancouver between the cities of Prince George and Williams Lake on the main route to northern British Columbia and the Yukon. Quesnel airport is seven kilometres away (10 minute drive) south. The casino’s exterior has been remodeled to resemble a Paddlewheel ship similar to those that plied the Fraser River during the gold rush of the 1800s.

The casino has its own hotel on site which has been recently renovated. Free parking is available. It has 38 standard rooms and two suite and each room has been decorated in the theme of the late 1800s. Cable TV and a separate seating area are provided in all rooms. Each uniquely decorated room includes coffee-making facilities. Quesnel Golf Course is 14 km away and other hotels within easy reach of the casino include Ramada Limited Quesnel, Best Western Plus Tower Inn, Grace Inn Quesnel and Travelodge Quesnel.

The casino has a total of over 140 slot machines. Its 138 electronic table games operate on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays starting at 2pm and include Four Card Poker, King’s Bounty and Lightening Poker which features No Limit Texas Hold’em. Enter the Birthday Club on your birthday (evidence required) and get a chance to win $500 worth of free slot play. You could also win the Mystery Progressive Prize (between $100,000 – $200,000) – a province-wide five-reel, nine-line two cent per credit slot game that grows until it’s won with three levels of mystery bonus prizes to be won throughout the day.
