“Slot machines are TIGHT”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

I played a lot of the slot machines at Ameristar and they are horribly tight. One machine I played I had gotten over 200 free spins. Yes, over 200 and this was on maximum bet. Do you know what those spins paid me? 295 dollars. I'm betting $3.00. I had triggered the 200 free spins at a different casino about 10 months ago and won almost 4,000.00. What does that tell you? I visited Ameristar about 5-6 months before that and the machines just kept sucking up my money. I only decided to go because my mother wanted to try. Even she said, "I won't be back here!" If you want to go to a casino where you may actually win, go down the road because there are other casinos in both directions.

“Everything in one place”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

The Casino is clean and well maintained. I personally have never won but I have seen others near me win so it must be possible. The casino staff is helpful and kind. There is a non smoking floor for those that dont like to puff.

As with most other casinos it seems most problems are created by other players taking up more than one machine, cutting in line or being rude. Nothing I know of that will make that better. While we didnt win, we did have a great time, free pop, tea and coffee and lots of nice people.

Attached to the casino is the HERITAGE BUFFET make sure you are hungry because the food is OUT OF THIS WORLD.

If you can get a room the stay in the hotel is very nice. Great rooms, beds and pillows that beg you to sleep in, good tv, internet. Our rooms had a microwave and fridge. Ice machines are on every other floor.

James was our Doorman and he is THE BEST. He knows all and tells all!!!

If you are looking to just spend a couple quiet days in one place with great food, great room and something to do Ameristar does it right!

“Tight Machines”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

The location and scenery are not great. The casino is very clean and the staff is very nice. The poker machines are very tight. It's a nice place to get away for a couple hours.
