It's a very nice and large casino property. right on the river, it has some great views of Omaha. Lots of machines both old and new. And the ceiling is pretty high so it didn't seem as smoky as other local casinos.

I'm not a big gambler & definitely not a smoker, so this was a big turn off for me. Ameristar tries to mask the smell but it does no good. I believe there are better ways to spend your money. Just me.

Our family stayed at a neighboring hotel and we made the journey to this beautiful casino each evening for dinner. The food was delicious and the server was beyond amazing! We were treated like we were family. Thank you!

You can also get rooms for $99 on Mondays. It's like everywhere else, cheaper early in the week.
