TIGHT TIGHT TIGHT SLOTS It used to be fun to go. You could at least break even in the casino once in awhile. It used to be lively and exciting place to be. Go and see it today. Its glum and quiet and everyone looks like they just got ripped off. They have far less slots now and tighter than... More

Heard their recent commercial stating they have the highest payout in the state of Iowa in slots at 96%. As luck would have it, I am one of the lucky 4% that didn't win anything! The sad truth here is that I have been coming to this casino for years. I can recall a time when this place was the... More

I have gone this Casino many times in the past. Today was not a positive example of the past one'. The Floor was not busy this morning. A group of upper level staff were mingling as they walked their way. And it was overhead them making fun a patron just a few isles away! Jest or no, this seemed totally... More

On January 13, 2017 I was there for dinner with my family when I had an episode of Vtach and my defibrillator discharged. The staff were all there on the spot trying to help til the responders got there. Bill and Tony, the First Responders, we're right there and took great care of me and the situation. There was another... More

A very dated hotel/casino whose sole mission is to take as much as possible from the retires of Iowa and Tama county. Its sad really the place was always filled with folks that are 70 plus during our stay and I never remember seeing anyone jumping up and down about winning big money on any gaming tables or slot machines....

I can usually walk away with more than I bring in (slots). I can't say the slots are looser there over others, but I like the atmosphere. I wouldn't recommend this as a place to work however. As an American Indian establishment, they can legally post that they are looking to employ others from their tribe and native americans in... More

In the past we have stayed at the hotel several times, very nice.... why we went back several times before we became locals. The buffet is very good and compared to other casino buffets we thought the food was a little better than normal. The facility is very nice. Between class reunions the Pow Wow and gaming they make you... More

Ordered our dinner and as we were waiting for our salads, my wife saw the waiter reaching into a bin to grab the lettuce for our plates. Bare handed and no gloves. I saw the manager and called him over. He said they use gloves and the salads are already prepared ahead of time. When the waiter came over, I... More
