About BLACKBIRD BEND CASINO

At Blackbird Bend, our goal is not to be a massive, glitzy gaming venue.  Sure, our casino is still a nice, modern facility with hundreds of slot machines and all of your favorite table tames, a great restaurant, a speedway, and other amenities.  But more than anything else, we strive to be – not the biggest- but the friendliest casino in the region.  We want to show you how much we appreciate your patronage-everyday-with the kind of great gaming, food, fun and exemplary guest services that you deserve.

The roots of Blackbird Bend Casino date back to July 1992 when the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska and Iowa opened CasinOmaha on the current casino site near Onawa, Iowa.  After several years of operation, the casino remodeled and restructured in 2009 and in October 2010 a new CasinOmaha re-opened its doors.

Flooding of historic proportions in the Missouri River valley forced the temporary closing of CasinOmaha and its speedway in June 2011.  Although a ten-foot berm around the main casino building held floodwaters at bay, the casino property was an island for months.

The casino re-opened in January 2013 As Blackbird Bend Casino, a smaller, temporary casino in the portion of the former CasinOmaha building while construction of a modern new facility was underway next door.  The all-new Blackbird Bend Corporation is the independent entity that manages the gaming enterprises of the Omaha Tribe—Blackbird Bend Casinos near Onawa, Iowa, and Lucky 77 in Walthill, Nebraska.  The Omaha Tribe of Nebraska and Iowa warmly welcomes you Blackbird Bend Casino! Enjoy!

Carve out your share of thousands of dollars when we stuff the giant prize wheel with a figurative Thanksgiving feast on Friday, November 17. Every 15 minutes from 6:00 to 11:00pm, we will draw the name of a guest who will spin the prize wheel up to four times. The spaces on the wheel will illustrate the various aspects of a complete Thanksgiving dinner with cash prizes attached to each. Win the total of your four spins. But, watch out for the bankrupt space! If a lucky guest lands on all the spaces needed for a basic turkey banquet – turkey, stuffing, potatoes and corn – he/she will win $2,500 in cash. Get into the drawings by visiting a kiosk to claim one free entry daily. Plus, earn additional entries whenever you play slots or live blackjack. 

You must be present to win.

Blackbird Bend offers its sincere thanks to all U.S. veterans and active military personnel. That’s why we are pleased to offer them either a free lunch buffet OR a free prime rib dinner buffet—their choice—on Veterans Day on Saturday, November 11. If your status as a veteran is already on file with us, you need only visit a kiosk to receive your coupon for a free meal. Visit Player Services with your military or veterans’ ID to have your account flagged for military status. That will also give you Military Rewards on the kiosks every day of the year. 

Additionally, veterans and active service men and women are invited to visit a kiosk any time on November 11 after they’ve earned just 5 points for the day on their Club card to receive the gift of a patriotic baseball cap. It’s just another token of our gratitude for their service to our country. 

Guests participating in our Veterans Day promotions must present a valid veterans or active military ID at Player Services unless their guest account already indicates their status as a veteran. Baseball caps are available while supplies last.
