The location is very accessible and convenient, right across from the river. A couple of security trucks are constantly monitoring the outdoor parking areas. You will also see more than usual number of security personnel on the casino floor. I never felt unsafe but the number of security personnel makes you wonder. Loosest slots? I do not know about that.... More

A nice place for an evening of gambling. A bit disappointing that it has gone almost completely to video slots since I personally prefer old school reels, but there are definitely enough variety. Table games also available, but no poker room.

We stopped on the way up north and had a nice visit. The casino was not real big, but big enough. The dealers at the Craps tables were engaging and eagerly offered help when asked. The place felt secure and there were plenty of slot machines if thats what you like. We had no trouble with parking or casino access.... More

Nice casino, great slots, only totally non-smoking casino in the area -- but the buffet is HORRENDOUS!. Lunch included incredibly greasy, barely warm fried chicken, few veggies, tired salad bar, cold pasta, and still frozen pie. First time I've ever left hungry after an all-you-can-eat buffet.

No ice or iced tea available. No breakfast. Limited shows on TV. No iron and coffee pot didn't work very well. View was amazing of the river and Arch. Employees very nice. Bed was very comfortable. But for the price, you should be able to get some ice.

Always have a good time at the table games -- dealers for baccarat, Mississippi Stud, and Craps can't beat -- best part $2 and $5 minimums. Slot are truly -- the loosest -- in the area!

Nice river view & the casino had cheap drinks....that about sums it up. You can get a Cardinal ticket package deal with the room a shuttle runs every 15 minutes that will take you to & from the game.

It is a casino and very few people wins. They have lots of slot machines for 1 penny to play. But minimum bet was 30 to 50 pennies each. Restaurant and buffet is very good and very reasonable. But spending a full day is very enjoyable.

The casino was right across the river from our downtown hotel. Easy free valet. Nice clean casino, not smokey like alot of casinos. My Husband and I won $400 @ the black jack table in 30 minutes and called it a night. Friendly dealer too.
