Beta of the $25 credits for slots vouchers in the typical vacation package to Niagara Falls. The credit goes onto a card that requirks giving them your driver's license and email to activate. And watch the slots. The electronic slots are overly complicated. The vast majority are penny slots, but you can't bet a penny at a time on most, or at least the default settings don't allow penny plays, so the majority of the time you transfer x amount over to the machine and you end up with a balance that can't be played. So forget about losing only by chance.

The table games are frustrating because nowhere are the minimum bets specified in writing, and the tables are crowded enough, forget about asking the attendant. For example, it was very frustrating when we asked minimum chip value and was told $5/ chip, but he didn't bother to tell us the minimum bet was $15 for red/block or odd/even on roulette. We left the casino feeling completely ripped off, and really wondering how anyone thinks that experience is fun. Save the aggravation and just buy a subway sandwich for the homeless people on the street outside the casino. It will make you feel better, and there is a much better chance it is honest.

Overall rating, it is incredibly frustrating to obtain and to deal with the casino issued credit card and with figuring out the machines. The only nice thing about the casino is that it is a non-smoking establishment, but it is far from chance that they are very financially successful, as if house odds aren't good enough.

Nice enough as a Casino, but the grounds and viewing areas were even nicer! Used the casino and grounds to get to the incline railway, made it a very easy walk to the falls.

We visited the casino to play the slots & just to walk around & sight see. Grounds are beautiful inside & out. Well maintained, resort is very clean. There are several stores in Fallsview for your shopping pleasure.

One of the many wonderful surprises of Canada is how clean it is. The cleanliness spread into the casino where, unlike us in America, it is all non-smoking with a small smoking section. It was fun to use the slots, it seemed like the win ratio was better than any other casino I had played in, but I may have just gotten lucky. If you like to gamble, mosey on in, it's fun!

My husband and I visited the casino during a trip September 2013. I am not much of a gambler but my husband was excited. There were slot machines and blackjack tables. Not being much of a gambler I can't really comment much on these. The casino was very crowded. The one thing that we found weird was that drinks were not free. In the United States (or at least the few casinos I have been too) you get free alcoholic drinks if you are gambling. At this casino, the drinks were like 15 dollars each and the waitress was rude! She was yelling at people and clearly flustered. It was just a weird experience overall. My husband went down the second night we were there and I actually choose to stay in the hotel room.
