Map Makes Finding 50+ Pacific Northwest Casinos Easy
Local company promotes regional travel
May 25, 2010 --

The Pacific Northwest is home to over fifty tribal casinos. Communities are seeing the benefits of the growing casino industry. Many rival the exuberance and thrill once believed to be a Las Vegas exclusive. Yet, with so many fun casinos in our midst, people still travel to Las Vegas, unaware of what’s available in their own backyard.

Eagle Publishing, a Washington based company since 1986, found it’s niche in launching new publications that answer the needs of Northwest communities. They believe the ‘buy local’ motto popular with businesses today should extend to casino trips as well.

Tribal casinos are establishing themselves as resort destinations complete with luxury suites, fine dining, spas and even world-class golf courses. Several are equipped to host conferences and large scale events.

Eagle Publishing decided to put Pacific Northwest casinos on the map, literally. The new Northwest Casino Travel Map, which spans Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana, makes finding over 50+ regional casinos easy. Each casino has a map marker. Red markers denote on-site lodging and as a bonus, symbols show which casinos offer RV parking, spas and golf courses. The user-friendly, accurate road map also lists addresses, phone numbers and websites.

The maps can be purchased online at for $6.95 or by calling 1-866-638-1115. The website and the company’s Facebook page offer easy access to casino sites, special offers and articles and tips to help gambling enthusiasts walk away with more money. The map encourages people to gamble responsibly—including some great tips on money management at the casinos.

A follow-up companion periodical is in the works. The company’s publisher, Vicki Dar, is a Washington state native with offices in Spokane and Redmond. "I grew up in the Yakima Valley on the Yakama Indian Reservation. I’m both honored and proud when I see what the casinos have meant to the Northwest. It has allowed tribes to give back to their communities—funding education, health clinics and more”, says Dar, “The casinos have made a difference in our local economy. It’s important that we encourage people to take advantage of these regional entertainment gems”.
