When I went in August, 777 slot points would get me a free meal. In September I needed 75 tier credits to get a meal. I had 900 points which translated into 61 tier credits. I got no free food. Par-A-Dice said there would be...More

I love the fact that the boat is Non-Smoking. But don't worry smokers you don't have to leave the boat to smoke. They have designated smoking area outside at the end of the boat on all 3 levels.

We decided at the last minute to stop and stay over at the Paradice. Hotel check in was fast and efficient. I only wish the gambling part was as well. The slot machines seemed to be quite tight, so lost my money way too fast....More

Par-A-Dice is on a boat in the water and the casino is much too narrow. It is difficult to navigate inside. Terrible floor plan! Machine and video poker selection is okay. Not as bad as I feared it would be. Lines can get long at...More

My husband likes to play cards while I enjoy the slot machines. The buffet is always very good with a big selection of food and desserts. We like going there once in a while to relax and have fun.

I live in town so I go a few times a year. You can have a good time Es. on Friday and Saturday nights. But, it is a tight Casino and Payouts are generally less that others Ive been too.

The worst Boyd property/casino we have ever visited. Slot and video poker selection is horrible. Many of the same machines have been there well over five years. Tables are okay. The reward center is a joke. Time for the owners to visit this place, an...More
