Lucky 7 Casino and hotel are enterprises of the Smith River Rancheria, located on the majestic, redwood-studded coastline of the scenic Pacific Ocean in Northern California near Brookings, Oregon. Established in 1906 on 160 acres, the Smith River Rancheria had once been the largest Native American landholder in the State of California, covering thousands of acres. "Termination," a government effort to assimilate or completely eradicate the Native American population, led to the loss of all but a few acres of land, leaving only a tiny offshore island, a cemetery and a church. Since then, and through much effort, the Rancheria has regained over 500 acres of land in tribal ownership.
Lucky 7 Casino opened its doors as a double-wide trailer in 1996, offering 60 slot machines. Later, a fuel mart and mini-market were added.Â Over the following years, the Casino has undergone a complete renovation, doubling the gaming area to include 320 games, and adding a poker room as well as a spacious non-smoking area.Â Recent additions include the Tolowa Event Center and the beautiful new hotel, Howonquet Lodge.
Through the leadership of the Smith River Rancheria Tribal Council, Lucky 7 Casino is working with the local area to build a sustainable economy to benefit our tribal members and the local community. Our goal is to provide a positive diversion and assist our guests in enjoying themselves with an all-encompassing escape that is so much more than they had expected.
