This casino is run by locals. Horrible experience. No rules or standards at the poker tables. Full of smoke.

Only disappointing thing about our trip. Dealers were not friendly and the casino had a musty odor. Too small for me as well.

This is a tiny Casino as compared to any casino in the US. It was full of smoke. We went there on a Sunday and the place was almost empty. We did not stay there for long.
