Reviewed 3 October 2013

Don't disregard my review because I had terrible luck, there was a lot more to it. Granted, the casino provides shuttle service, is clean, and has a good buffet...but that is par for any of them. For that, they get the 2 stars rather than one. My personal experience will describe the cons:

First off, it is a slot casino. The selection and number of tables is minimal with only a couple little sections to choose from. They only had a few tables open while I was there, which I guess was to keep more players per table, so I decided to sit a one with an open spot. I wasn't too familiar with the game so I figured I would give it a chance. I played about a dozen hands and lost all but one. I split the luck 50/50 between bad luck and the dealer not explaining all of the rules at once. So what, I lost, so I got up and moved over to the roulette wheel. I watched about 6-7 balls land on an even, red, low number so I figured I would play the odds and bet odd, black, high.....it rolled about 8 or so more even, red, lows in a row before I stopped saying, "there is no way it can do that again." and got up and left. Yes, about 15 even, red, lows in a row. Anyway, I bounced around for a bit longer between the tables. Everyone who worked there knew of my bad luck because they all commented on it. Regardless, I was never offered a drink. I even had to be rude and shout an order at a few servers....but still didn't get one. I didn't get one comp. You figure someone who busts on several hundred dollars would get some drinks, food, etc. but nope. When I road the shuttle out, the bus was filled with people grumbling the same thing as myself, "I have never had this much bad luck in my entire life!" I didn't meet one winner. Anyway, call it the luck of the cards if you want, but they you will have to admit that THIS CASINO SERVES UP BAD LUCK!

Lots of slot machines, lots of variety, mostly penny machines, $1 machines few and far between, not very loose; high roller area not very diversified, just the older style machines, not Top Dollar or Pin Ball, my favorite...you'll find these at the Beau, Hardrock, and IP and they pay NICE. The card tables are the best, great dealers, love the Party Poker games with their bonus spots. You earn comps for table play separately from slot play, so you are getting great free play offers monthly from each "dept". Amazing Marketing Ploy, and it works. Now I usually come here lst then go to my favorite spots in Biloxi. The Island View has many 2X and 10X point play days and if you sign up with email, they'll notify you of them.

On August 19th I visited the Island View Casino in Gulfport Mississippi.
When I walked in I was impressed by the size of the casino and the volume of slot machines, UNTIL, I got a close look and a view of the other players. Obviously I did not see too many happy faces, and the machines especially the older ones were in disrepair. If you are looking for better odds go to the Biloxi casinos and play.

We have been here for a few buffets and have always been very pleased. The selection is tremendous, always fresh and beautifully presented.
