The slots have been recently updated and more machines have been added. I love to go watch the horses when they are racing. We have also gone to see the Canadian Tire car races. Versatile spot

We found that the casino had a nice selection of slots . The gamblers seemed very happy! We actually ate at the dining area. The food was good and plentiful and we had a nice relaxing time.

This is a great, little casino, tucked away in the farmland of Peterborough County. The staff are lovely, they have great entertainment , and the slots are a lot of fun. Not a lot of machines, but enough, people are very friendly, loved that!
