I spent $40 and didn't win anything. It is a good place just for fun. It's not worth it to spend more even though the majority of the people do. I like the "fishing" game. I am not a serious gambler.

Couldn't believe they still allowed Smoking.....even in the No Smoking areas, the place is Large enough to wall-off an area for Non-Smokers. Casinos in Mexico have done it. Would have stayed longer but, we couldn't take it any longer.
