This is a large casino with a nice variety of games. The downfall is the cigarette smoke is very heavy. If you are an anti smoker or care about your lungs..This is not the place for you.

In areas where smoking is allowed, we’re currently making upgrades to our air handling system. We hope the difference is noticeable in the coming months!

Not sure about that, but if you are concerned, relax, have fun and don't use your players card. You don't have to use it to play or win.
