Machines broken, couldn't find a drink girl, if you find a machine that works, they never paid off. Pass by and be glad you missed it.

I think this place is past it's prime and needs a renovation. I'm sure it was a nice casino back in the day but it is kind of outdated now. We did have a good time playing slots and playing at the tables but the casino could bring in more tourists if it was updated.

Odd's are not in your favour here! The machines are all takers. Not worth trying. Go to Alambra or the city to win.

The A/C needs to be refreshed and the staff needs a lesson in good manners. Some staff were actually sitting on slot machine seats or leaning and talking in their native language which is fine by me but when they look at a person, laugh, point and start talking in their native language that just makes you feel as though...

This casino is old, tables are worn and the room is generally pretty dreary. I had some friendly dealers but the pay out was horrible. I played blackjack, and poker (Texas Hold'em). Be warned the poker room is full of rules, however, they are unspoken rules. for example: you get $40 extra chips in poker, HOWEVER, if you do not... More

This casino was very nice, had a large selection of machines and seemed like the only one you could win anything at or break even.

I visited several casinos in town and this was by far one of the worst. The atmosphere was smoke filled, dirty, old and poor payouts. I would agree with the seedy review. The casino is not well lit and a lot of the machines have broken parts. Video poker selection is very poor.

Lots of locals hang out there. Hard to get a drink most of the time. Slots are generally of the older type. Kind of seedy atmosphere.
