Bluffs Run Greyhound Park opened in 1986. In March 1995, slot machines were added and the property became Bluffs Run Casino. Harveys Casino Resorts bought the property in 1999 for $165 million. Harrah's Entertainment (now Caesars Entertainment) acquired Harveys in 2001. In 2006, Harrah's completed an $85-million expansion and renovation of the casino and rebranded it as Horseshoe Council Bluffs. Greyhound racing ended in 2015. On October 6, 2017, ownership of the property was transferred to Vici Properties as part of a corporate spin-off, and it was leased back to Caesars Entertainment.
Horseshoe Council Bluffs reviews
Love the “H” handles walking in and the friendly staff greeting. Such a wide range of food options. Nice layout for a casino. Very clean and professional

The security staff will harass you. Especially Jefferson and Gary . Gary is the biggest problem. Jefferson is a problem too but not as much as Gary

It's getting a bit old, but that doesn't bother me a bit because they have a lot of the old fashioned 3 & 5 reel slot machines. Plenty of the video slots too if that's what you prefer. I just have one gripe, there's a cafe that says open 24 hours, but it was closed in the wee hours of the morning...we were starved! I'm not sure why casinos aren't offering food 24 hours a day like they used to. Covid is over people.
We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn next door. So the casino right next door was pretty convenient. The hotel was average. Nothing exceptional. Had a lot of maintenance issues with our room. I appreciate that there was smoking in the casino still. The security staff were professional and friendly. I didn't get offered one single drink though. I hardly hit any bonuses. The place was pretty busy on the weekend. Almost hard to find a machine to play. This casino didn't pay out hardly anything.
