“Great time and good food!”
Review of Rising Star Casino

Rising Star Casino
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 December 2013

We enjoyed our stay at the Rising Star. The friendly staff at the front desk quickly made us feel welcome. Our room was large, clean, and had been recently remodeled. The common area's were nicely decorated with wide corridors and interesting pictures on the walls. There are a good variety of dining experiences available at this resort and the Riverview Buffet was our favorite. The casino had a great variety of slot machines, some old favorites and some new. We appreciated the large non-smoking area.

We stayed at Rising Star Casino and Resort Oct 14th.

They have remodeled many rooms and being on the third floor our room was finished. It looked so nice. They have really updated their rooms.

This staff does an exemplary job of making everyone feel as if they are special.
We took advantage of the Breakfast Buffet and it was quite good.

They are building an additional building and adding 100 hotel rooms. Good for them because they are been booked up when we were in the area. They can use the additional hotel rooms.
The casino itself is smaller than casinos in Vegas etc… but they are just as nice. Various slot machines and this casino has ‘real’ dealers at the blackjack tables. Until Indiana Grand which only has machine blackjack. Glad to see ‘real’ dealers at Rising Star Casino.

They also have Bingo which looked like it was worth the effort but I was unable to play. Might the next time I am in town.

This casino WAS alot of fun and value for the money..when it was Grand Victoria Casino
Now it has been sold and renamed Rising Star Casino.
This place looks similar but the place stinks ....literally.
Stale cigarette smoke lingers (BTW I smoke)
It is temperature HOT or freezing cold.
The slots are outdated and not cared for with some brand new ones looking really out of place
The payout is very, very tight.
Beltrrra is the Best Bet.

I have travelled to this venue many times over the last 10 years as it is considered local to my area. The last three times we have visited have been on a weekend and the place is so understaffed that we could not find a black jack table to play at. We were there the first Saturday in August at 5:00 PM and they had 3 blackjack tables open with full seats. A pitiful showing for what could be a busy weekend. I played a few slots and after $300.00 in wondered when I was going to experience the "loosest slots in Indiana"?
There was no line at the buffet on a Saturday night which is a sure sign something is amiss at a venue. We left within an hour and will likely never return as this is the third lack luster experience we have had there. We almost long for the days when the place was the Grand Vic. It was much easier to find a table and a good dinner!
