Visiting the area for the weekend and decided to stop in for a couple hours. Not overly smoky and a lot of different slots to play. Not a ton of newer machines. Would visit again if in the area.

Between the 2 casinos in Dubuque, this one is better. More like a Vegas casino. The gift shop wasn't anything to get excited about and wasn't even open on a Saturday night.

I like casinos, but having to inhale all the tobacco exhaust is way too much. I hope the sports book (when it opens) will be smoke free. Some casinos in Vegas have smoke-free sports books, and that would be welcome for a non-smoker like me....More

I am not a Diamond Club member, so am not sure what benefits you receive with that membership. I would suggest contacting member services @ the casino.
