Very small casino on the boat, but surrounded by larger restaurant and shopping venues. New land-based casino slated to open late 2017. You won't miss much if you wait for the new one. But an OK way to spend an evening.

The band was awesome. The staff were friendly and helpful. The slots were fun but there were several with lights flashing showing attention was needed. They are building a new land based casino and I am excited to go back when it is done.
