This casino does offer electrical hook-ups for clients visiting in RVs at a reasonable price, but the offerings within the casino are very limited. Ample slots, but few table games and the "restaurant" in the casino is mostly a sandwich bar with a soup and...More

Terrible terrible casino....couldn't get waited on while donating my money (did not see 1 single slot payoff) the entire evening. Save your money....to me this is clearly a training center for employees because it sure was terrible at being a casino

Creepy atmosphere reminiscent of a cheap wedding banquet hall with the decor and the furniture to match. Don't bother going here unless...More
