We have never been here so we decided to go in. Very clean, no stale smoke smell...even though we are both smokers. It has separate nonsmoking areas. I did hit fairly big on 1 of the machines so I was a happy camper!

Lots of slot machines, live poker and typical table games. Typical, small-ish casino. They charge for drinks when you are gambling. No hotel attached. Nearest hotel is probably about 3 miles.

Typical Hollywood Casino in a country setting. Nice dealers and there were still 10 dollar blackjack tables available. It would have been nicer to leave with some of their money!

Buffet absolutely is disgusting. Cold old food that has no taste or taste like salt. Not even edible, $20 down the drain

I have gone many times by myself and had no problems. Of course they like you to gamble, but they have numerous dining options where you can spend time. The races don't start till 6 so that isn't an option for a daytime... More
