This is my favorite casino in WV. Large casino, los of slot machines. Smoking and non smoking areas. Food court is very good and reasonably priced. Staff is friendly. Waitresses are always around to offer drinks.

This was our second trip to this casino. We enjoyed ourselves, but not as much as other casinos we have visited. It does have lots of space, but is quite smokey. Luck was not with us this time, but maybe next time.

I think children are allowed at the Race track. I've seen families (with children in tow) in the race track so many times. They are just not allowed to gamble or make bets.
