Boomtown Casino & Hotel Bossier City

Located in the northwest region of Louisiana, Boomtown Casino & Hotel Bossier City is the aptly-named establishment operated by Penn National Gaming. The state of Louisiana now has over 25 casinos operating within its borders, and business is definitely booming.

That said, all that business makes for a crowded market, and casinos have to work a bit harder to retain customers. Boomtown does this by focusing on everything that’s important, and they do it the right way, by keeping it simple.


Boomtown Casino is not one of the biggest and flashiest casinos in the state. That honor probably belongs to its sister-site, L’Auberge Casino Resort Lake Charles.

However, due to Boomtown Casino’s location, they don’t have to be. They keep things simple here and provide a solid gaming floor with plenty of action. Hundreds of slots, video poker machines and table games are ready to play with good rates and reasonable minimums.

All the classic games are here such as roulette, craps, 3 Card Progressive, and, of course, blackjack. You don’t have to be the biggest casino in town to be popular, all you have to do is provide the games people want at reasonable rates, and this is exactly what Boomtown Casino does.


The promotional program at Boomtown Casino is very important to their business. There are great promotions every week, and they are even better in conjunction with the rewards system.

MyChoice is the premier casino loyalty program used by Boomtown Casino, and it offers plenty of value to regular players. Not only do you earn points and rewards on every dollar you spend at Boomtown, but MyChoice can also be used at any of its sister sites.

Points can be redeemed for prizes, comps, and rebates. Plus, new members receive $30 of Free Play guaranteed on Day One and a chance to receive $500 Free Play after three visits.


Boomtown Casino keeps everything straightforward, including their hotel. This is a nice place with plenty of comfortable rooms and suites, perfect for long weekends and overnight stays.

Every room and suite is stocked full with all the expected essentials, and Boomtown Casino even offers a Best Rate Guarantee. Upon checking in, every guest is guaranteed the best rate available, even if it is cheaper than their original reservation price. It’s a great deal and a nice offer for guests.


Staying on brand, the Boomtown Casino comes with four solid dining options for whatever mood strikes you. If you’d like a quick bite for breakfast, lunch, or dinner you can stop in at Boomer’s Cafe.

There is also the Sundance Cantina for cocktail hour. The 1800 Prime Steakhouse is available for dinner Thursday through Sunday for upscale cuts of steak and seafood.

Plus, just as every casino requires, there is the Cattleman’s Buffet open throughout the week for breakfast and dinner. No matter what you are in the mood for or how much you are looking to spend or even what time of day it is, Boomtown Casino always has something to offer.


As mentioned, the Sundance Cantina is open to give guests a touch of the nightlife. The live entertainment starts every night at eight, and guests can enjoy cocktails from an impressive list of house specialties.

There is also plenty of wine and draft beer if the cocktails aren’t your speed. Not only are there plenty of local musicians on the scene but also karaoke twice a week. Weekly specials are also not uncommon, and you can find all their exciting events posted on the website’s entertainment page.

Overall Review

While every casino in the United States seems to feel the need to be as big and shiny as it can possibly be, Boomtown Casino knows exactly who they are. It is quite refreshing actually as there is nothing worse than a casino trying too hard and coming up short.

While you will find all the bells and whistles of any casino in Boomtown, they do it right by making sure all the staples are worth your while. All the popular games are here and at reasonable prices. All the dining is here and at good prices.

The hotel even guarantees the best prices. In a crowded market, it is tough to stand out, and too many casinos try too hard to break out of the pack. Boomtown Casino and Hotel Bossier City stands out because they simply focus on the casino-goer and everything they want.
