Lady Luck is in the house at Apache Gold Casino Resort. Located a few minutes east of Globe, just a short drive from Phoenix, the newly renovated property offers an enjoyable respite from the daily grind.

Offering rest and entertainment amidst the wild desert landscape, the property is owned and operated by the San Carlos Apache Tribe and is nestled within the rugged beauty and mesas of the Arizona desert amidst stately Saguaro cacti.

Ideal for casino aficionados looking to explore the Sonoran Desert, the Apache Gold Casino Resort is a 40-minute drive from the Picket Post Mansion and Boyce Thompson Arboretum; the oldest and largest botanical garden in Arizona, where you can discover exotic cacti, vibrant wildflowers, and the best fall and winter colors that the Southwest desert has to offer.

The freshly renovated property boasts 146 rooms recently redesigned with updated furniture, upholstery, beds, and décor. Crisp bedsheets, fresh towels, and all the amenities you’d expect to ensure your stay is relaxing and comfortable. In the coming year, pool renovations and the addition of a state-of-the-art business center will be completed.

To complement the room updates, 252 new slot machines were added to the gaming floor, along with the introduction of new themed games to join the classics in the casino.

The fun doesn’t stop when you’re done spinning. There are plenty of table games to choose from, including classic three-card poker and blackjack. The dealers are happy to deal you in at one of Apache Gold’s friendly tables.

The casino has partnered with the premier sports betting app WynnBet Online Sports Betting to enhance the Apache Gold experience. While onsite, visitors can enjoy betting and interacting online with like-minded sports aficionados while playing slots or tables in person.
