Very nice Casino, but it was under some construction. Liked the variety of machines over the 4 stories. And did come out ahead! Waitresses were quick to come around for drinks too. Beautiful food court & gift shop.

Casino has plenty of slots and card games, however the non smoking section is a joke. I chose to leave early because the smoke was so heavy.
