We visit this casino on our annual trip to Minnesota. It's very clean and has a nice atmosphere. We usually don't win any money but it's a fun place to go and have fun.

I'm not really much of a casino person, so it took me a while to figure out what to do again. (My last trip had been 3 years prior.) Being that I have only been to about five casinos my entire life, I would guess...More
