The casino has a good mix of machines. With brand new machines mixed in with classic machines. I don't play the tables so I can't help you there.

We enjoyed the dog races on Saturday. It was strange that the bar ran out of Captain Morgan but did not do anything to replace it. Shocked management could not deliver a replacement since we were there for several hours. Being from Ohio, we did...More
