Apex casino is located in the beautiful Edmonton suburb of St. Albert – known as the ‘Botanical Arts City’. Formerly named Gold Dust, the casino benefited from an extensive renovation in 2010. It is situated around 10 kilometres from St Albert city centre. Whether casual or classy, Apex casino can accommodate your style. Its surroundings are beautiful as it is situated in the midst of three golf courses and is only a short distance from the Red Willow Trail – a system of over 70 km of walking trails stretching down the river valley connecting to the city’s major parks and neighbourhoods.
The casino is 50 km north from Edmonton International Airport (about a 30 minute drive) and 10 km north of the city airport. It lies directly off the highway to Edmonton and is easy to get to from the city centre. Although there is no hotel on the site of the casino, there are a number of decent options within a short distance. The nearest is the Best Western Plus at St. Albert and others include Super 8 Edmonton West, the Holiday Inn and Suites West Edmonton as well as the Ramada Edmonton Hotel.
The casino features table games including Ultimate Texas Hold ’Em with a focus on slots with over 370 Las Vegas-style machines ranging from one cent to one dollar including ‘Diamond Millions’ where the jackpot starts at one million dollars.
