This Racino is the first new facility of its kind to be built from the ground up. More than 1,400 slot machines, live horse racing, music, nightlife, and great food, makes Evangeline downs the perfect place to play. Enjoy live thoroughbred horse racing April through September and live quarter horse racing October through December (Wednesday through Saturday). 

Grab a quick bite from Fast & Lucy's, located in the middle of the gaming floor, or visit The Café, which is open until midnight. For traditional American cuisine or Cajun-style dishes like blackened chicken sandwiches and gumbo, check out EVD Express. The casino's newest addition, The Spotted Horse Tavern & Dining Parlor is the perfect place for specialty cocktails, craft beer, and Cajun fusion cuisine.
