Craps, roulette and all other table games are on par with competitors in the locals market. There is also a sportsbook and bingo hall.
There are 12 restaurants at Suncoast; several of them are new and opened after Boyd Gaming took on the commitment of refreshing its dining options a few years ago. There are a number of entertainment options at Suncoast including a movie theater, bowling alley and showroom with lounge acts or performers that appeal to Suncoast’s older clientele.
