Transportation to Casinos?

Transportation to Casinos?

Is there a shuttle from downtown Omaha to the Casinos in Council Bluffs? If not, is there any other transportation or is it close enough for a cab ride to be feasible?

Not sure about shuttles since I live here but they are pretty close to Downtown Omaha - just a bit south across the river. You could check with the Casino or with your hotel

IMO - Skip Harrah's altogether its pretty low end. The Horseshoe ( also run by CET - formerly Harrah's ) is the nicest layout and not on a riverboat. Ameristar has the best playing slots ( according to the Iowa State numbers published in the American Casino Guide ) . That being said, the average slot payback is about 90 % which is the worst payback % of all the casinos in Iowa and about 2% lower than the Vegas strip so dont be surprised if you are a slot player and go home broke.

Table games are good however with 5$ Craps and Blackjack easy to find at Ameristar and Harrah's. BJ limits are usually higher at Horseshoe on the busy nights. Horseshoe has live Greyhound racing and OTB.

Free soft drinks only unless you are a higher leve player with a players card.

Horseshoe has the best Steakhouse - Binions - one of the best in the area.
