Close to home gaming. If your looking to get out and have a little fun its got a bit of excitement when people win. Bring some friends and have some fun as a group.

Save your money. The place does just not cater to their guests like other casinos. It is almost as if they don't want any people in there! Seriously strange.

Was hoping the place would have tables. Only slots and not much entertainment. Buffet was ok but not great. Bar was nice.

I guess there might be other denominations, but we were so turned off by the atmosphere we practically ran out of the place. I hate to be so negative, but we drove 65 miles... More

Been coming here yearly for about 8 years. Nothing much new. Looking forward to the new casino. Love to watch the trotters and hope they do renovations like they say they will
