“Pretty quickly eating up the gambling funds”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I realize it is called gambling for a reason, and therefore I am not critical how fast the money goes. Some machines seemed to be older generation and they all seemed pretty tight with payouts. It was a nice little diversion for a few minutes, but I think overall it is expensive to play them for extended periods. The smoke is pretty thick in the smoking casinos and not ideal if you are allergic. Just be mindful and perhaps only stay in the non-smoking casino.

“Not a bad spot...”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Very slot oriented casino. Spent a Saturday night here, it was not overly busy at all which was great. Two different smoking sections, neither of which was overwhelmingly smoky. Service was good, no complaints.

“Small and smoky!!”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

This is a very small casino in a nice little hotel, but the minute you walk in the door of the hotel your over taken by cigarette smoke.. If your looking for action I don't think this is the place your looking for, mostly older people...not that there is a thing wrong with that, but if your looking to party pick another casino.

“Casino”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

This Casino is designed to keep you in your chair longer, they give you lots of opportunities to win enough to play longer. You won't see many big jackpots. The smoking casino areas are very smoky. The non-smoking rooms seem underused and machines seemed tight. Overall it was a good experience.
