Don't go if you actually want to win money. Machines seem slightly looser then a year ago but payouts are sadly low even by comparison of Indiana casinos. Traditional games are non existent there. I've gambled through throughout the world, and this place scrapes by.

Not sure about the wifi. I have Verizon Wireless for cell service and it seems to work fine inside the casino. I noticed friends that have AT&T have to step outside to use their phones. Not sure why.

After signing up for an Eldorado players card, you can check the kiosks or slot machines any time you wish.
