If Sea Life Gambled at Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort

If Sea Life Gambled at Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort

The Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort is famous for its beautiful waterfront and picturesque views of Puget Sound. Built on both the current and ancestral home of the Suquamish people, the water and sea life have played an important role in the culture of the “people of the clear salt water” for centuries. What would it be like if our undersea friends came and visited our casino? What games would they play? Fear not, friends for we have the answer.

  1. Orca Whale: What game would be perfect for the intelligent and ferocious Orca? Texas Hold Em. We’re positive that the majestic killer whale would favor the Texas Hold Em Tourneys we hold daily. The game is perfect for an animal with a killer instinct and a suit to match. Careful though, because when this whale sits down she views all the other players as seals. Watch out!

  2. Spiny Dogfish: Although dogfish look like their shark relatives, they are small and rather silly looking if you ask us. They do, however, have a venomous spine attached to each dorsal fin that can definitely leave you hurting if they jab it in you. As such, this fish is likely to sit down at “third base” (to the right of the dealer) at the Blackjack table and irritate you all night. He’ll take the dealer’s bust card. He will insist on splitting 10s. Stupid dogfish!

  3. Dungeness Crab: So let me guess… you think because it’s a crab it’s going to play penny slots and get angry at the servers. Well, that’s what flatfish would do. You’d be mad if you were a flounder, too. The beautiful and tasty Dungeness would park themselves at the Craps table and would be the life of the party. We’d think they would be generous with tips, buy their friends drinks and be nothing like the stereotypes in popular media. Just give crabs a chance people!

  4. Geoduck: The geoduck is a Pacific Northwest favorite. They love hanging out in the Puget Sound and on Hood Canal just like our human customers! Like flatfish, these guys would likely play slots but get freaked out by all the bells and whistles and would likely hide under the seat. Nonetheless, they can’t help themselves – slots are fun and just like millennials (maybe we should start calling millennials geoducks?) they’d be drawn to all the noises and animations. Hey, this writer is a millennial and I think all those noises are neat too. I’d like to get a gang together to drink IPAs with our shelled friends. Don’t be surprised if you feel a stream of water hit you in the back too – these guys spit. When you hang out with geoducks you have to remember one thing – spit happens!

  5. Seagulls: Technically they don’t live in the sea but we aren’t going to discriminate – they can come hang out too! Just don’t eat our friends, or at least wait till you leave the casino! I think these guys would like to play Keno. They’d love the relaxed pace and low buy in that is typical of our Keno. They’d squawk back and forth as they watched the numbers flash across the board. I’d feel bad for whoever had to clean up after a flock of seagulls though – they poop everywhere. If it was me I would run. I’d run so far away

  6. Chinook Salmon: Hey, here’s a fish we’d like to find in the smoking section! Just kidding, our shiny friends! Salmon are versatile so I’d imagine they’d dabble in all the table games. Hey there my salmon chum! why don’t you take a break from the roulette wheel (we don’t think you know what you are doing anyway)? We have something in the kitchen to show you. What is it? Well, check out all these herbs and this nice cedar plank. What do you think of this? Am I drooling? Ahh, it’s nothing….

Hope you enjoyed our post! If all this talk of seafood made you hungry, come check out our delicious dining options at our enticing eateries! Remember life’s a game… come live it up at Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort!
