BEEN A LONG TIME

It has been a long time since I have visited this casino. Boy the place looks different. Much more updated with more of the new machines. Good luck and bad luck- typical casino!

This casino is not desirable in comparison to other can casinos reachable within a half an hour drive time. Of course, it is still located on the "boat" built many years ago. Quite crowded, lots of smoking, and not seeing many people celebrating winnings. Again-no thanks!

Their point system for their players card is terrible. Play all day and night and get practically nothing for it.

Before it was the Harrah's they had a hotel. When it was renovated the hotel was removed which gave more parking space. Gaming is fun, entertaining and fun. You can request a drink by pressing the button on your machine. If you have a reward card you gain point pretty quick, the buffet has a wide spread of delicious food.
