Great casino. We were happy with our winnings. Observed lots of payouts! Very clean everywhere. Not smoky. Just need to teach the male bartender the proper glass to use when serving champagne and to not fill the glass to the top so it bubbles over!

Quick stop, not planning on staying long. Today the machines were good for me. Won good money and more than made up for any loss by Dave. Got a very good lunch too. Will be back, Bingo looks fun.

Not the largest casino, but plenty of tables and machines to keep you occupied. Restaurants, bars available. Live music towards the weekend. Sign up for the rewards card and get $15 in free play.
