About the Swinomish

The Swinomish, a community of Coast Salish peoples, are descendants of groups & bands originating in the Skagit and Samish River valleys, the surrounding coastal areas and islands- including Fidalgo, Camano, Whidbey and the San Juan Islands.

Located on the pristine Washington coast, the Swinomish Casino & Lodge is owned and operated by our tribal community. We started as a small bingo operation in 1985. In 1990, we began negotiations for a gaming license and a Compact was signed with the State of Washington in December of 1992. We chose to build the casino next to its acclaimed Bingo Hall. The construction was completed and the Casino opened its doors to the public on July 15, 1994.

Over the years, the company has grown but its philosophy and commitment have always remained the same: to be the friendliest casino in the area with outstanding customer service and to provide guests a luxuriant, state-of-the-art experience while maintaining and upholding the cultural identity of the Swinomish Tribe. Today, we are proud to be one of the leading employers in the Anacortes area.

Swinomish Casino & Lodge is a full-service entertainment destination including a 98 room luxury lodge, 9,000ft²

multipurpose Wa Walton Event Center, and casino featuring Las Vegas style gaming.  We have 800 of the latest slot titles, table games including Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Pai Gow, and Keno.
