Calling All Gamblers to Ameristar Casino

I have been to casinos all over the world from Germany to Wisconsin to Nevada to California and many others. While in Kansas City, Missouri we stayed the night at the Ameristar and got to experience all of the hype around this casino and I have to admit, I really enjoyed my time staying here and would return here in the future.


The Ameristar Hotel and Casino is located at 3200 North Ameristar Drive in Kansas City, Missouri. The casino advertises that they offer the newest and most popular slot machine games.


The atmosphere of the hotel is very elegant and filled with earth toned colored furnishings and curtains. Large pieces of artworks from paintings to glass plates decorate the lobby. I was very impressed walking into the hotel.


No matter what you are looking for to eat, you are sure to find it within the hotel. As we checked in the gentleman at the front desk was telling us everything the hotel had to offer. I laughed and told him I think it would be easier to tell us what you don’t have. He laughed and said the only things we don’t have is a weight room or a pool.

Each restaurant offered you a different and unique selection of food and drinks depending on what you are looking for.

Amerisports Brew Pub- This was our favorite hangout. This area seats up to 300 people and was designed to resemble a converted old World foundry complete with brick walls and leaded windows.

Review of the Casino

The casino was basically located in the center of everything. The casino itself had 2 stories and was complete with 59 table games and over 2,800 slots. Many of the slot machines were ones that I didn’t recognize because they were so new, and trust me I go to casinos a lot. We were winning back and forth, but didn’t win a lot but didn’t lose a lot, which is ok. At least it let us play for awhile before losing the money we stuck in the machines. The best part is that the casino is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week.


Staying at the Ameristar made you feel as if you were staying in a small city inside and everything you could think of was within walking distance for food and shopping. No matter what you wanted they offered. It was truly an amazing place to stay. We do plan on going back in the near future! I would highly recommend this casino to all you gamblers out there.
