It's a decent casino. Certainly it is a little on the older side, and they do have Bingo too. It was a good mix of machines, some older and some newer, and the staff did look... read more

It's a decent casino. Certainly it is a little on the older side, and they do have Bingo too. It was a good mix of machines, some older and some newer, and the staff did look friendly. Some people were winning a little, but many seemed a little on the losing side. Plenty of parking. and a few eateries on... More

TIGHT TIGHT TIGHT SLOTS It used to be fun to go. You could at least break even in the casino once in awhile. It used to be lively and exciting place to be. Go and see it today. Its glum and quiet and everyone looks like they just got ripped off. They have far less slots now and tighter than... More

Heard their recent commercial stating they have the highest payout in the state of Iowa in slots at 96%. As luck would have it, I am one of the lucky 4% that didn't win anything! The sad truth here is that I have been coming to this casino for years. I can recall a time when this place was the... More

I have gone this Casino many times in the past. Today was not a positive example of the past one'. The Floor was not busy this morning.

A very dated hotel/casino whose sole mission is to take as much as possible from the retires of Iowa and Tama county. Its sad really the place was always filled with folks that are 70 plus during our stay and I never remember seeing anyone jumping up and down about winning big money on any gaming tables or slot machines....

We had heard about this casino and had the opportunity to visit so we did. We were there Friday night (busy and crowded) and Saturday mid morning (the opposite. Very large casino for the area and hard to navigate. Not a huge variety of games, but it was fine for awhile

I can usually walk away with more than I bring in (slots). I can't say the slots are looser there over others, but I like the atmosphere. I wouldn't recommend this as a place to work however. As an American Indian establishment, they can legally post that they are looking to employ others from their tribe and native americans in... More

In the past we have stayed at the hotel several times, very nice.... why we went back several times before we became locals. The buffet is very good and compared to other casino buffets we thought the food was a little better than normal. The facility is very nice.
