Closest Casino atmosphere that you will fund outside of Vegas. Modern, clean, excellent assortment of machines. Safe and secure parking and very friendly people. Probably gets bery busy during the racing season, but otherwise, nice and uncrowded.

We went to the horse races, and got a table here. It was a buffet, with some tasty dishes. Service was good. Overall, it was a fun day, with average food.

This was a fun night to enjoy - did not try the table games but had fun on the variety of machines - from a penny to a dollar with a high roller section that I avoided. Seem that most of the machines are newer...More
