We used to frequent this casino a lot. Now we go maybe once a year if in that part of town. They really need to close the river boat casino types and accept gambling in its entirety as land based adult entertainment sites. Our major complaint about Hollywood has always been that far too many slots have to be crammed... More

I had a few hours to spare before leaving town and this wasn't a bad way to spend that time. The casino needs some upgrading and the food was expensive considering it was stadium food. I passed and played hungry. After about four hours playing on the house, I walked away with enough to recoup my dollars spent on the... More

Basically, after speaking with the bartender, my food was never made and the doors to the Grill were closed. Forty dollars worth of... More

I will say that this is the only casino that let you play for a little bit before taking it all. The others were much worse. This ones bad so you have to know that the others are ridiculous!

They don't have a hotel, and don't give the best gifts/comps, but if you like to play and are on a tight budget, you get more playback there than any other local casino.
