Best Casino

Tulalip Casino

From friendly little gaming joints like the Angel of the Winds in Snohomish County to the flashy Snoqualmie and expansive Muckleshoot casinos east and south, respectively, of Seattle, there are now 28 Indian casinos across Washington state. But none comes closer to Vegas-style surroundings and slots than the Tulalip, the resort and casino off I-5 near Marysville. Its canopied entry graced by pools and water fountains opens into a cavernous room of table games, slots, bars, and four restaurants. Top acts stop by its 2,300-seat amphitheater, and serious gamblers use the adjoining 370-room hotel. If you're a slot player, there are 1,200 considerably loose machines, from the newest (such as Lion Heart and Fish in a Barrel) to golden oldies (Double Dolphin and Road Trip). Hint: The winning machine is usually the one to your right where someone else just sat down. Try to be gracious when she screams. RICK ANDERSON 10200 Quil Ceda Blvd, Tulalip, 888-272-1111,
