This is an awful casino. Dark, ugly, and old. I used three slots and all three slots had an issue. One only printed out a partial pay out voucher, so an attendant had to go with me to the cashier so I could get my payout. The second machine "ate" the voucher as it fed into the machine, another trip... More

It is the worse casino on the island of Aruba!!!!!! They really need to improve on the slots. They need more of a selection. People in there (the help is so (UNFRIENDLY). I refuse to gamble in there. I go elsewhere, where the help is friendly.

Very depressing casino. The smell of cigarette smoke is overwhelming. They still allow smoking in the casinos in Aruba. It was not enjoyable. We stayed less than 5 minutes.

This casino was very small and the poker machines (there were only a few) did not have very good odds for the players. We left our player's cards at home and they were not able to give us another one as their machine was broken.

It had all the table games, a poker room and a sports book. The dealers were hit or miss. Some were friendly but others didn't say much.

This casino has not changed in the last 10 years, it still has a very strong smoke odor, the people are not too friendly and most of the machines are the older type.

Anytime I've been to this place, the slots don't seem to have a lot of variety and if you go during bingo, you're lucky to find a slot machine. Slots seem crammed very tightly and (imho) it's better to just walk thru and avoid this one.

I find this casino depressing, it's 1970 feel is a drag and makes you want to leave. I love the holiday inn and wish I did not have to walk to another establishment. However, I may be a bit bitter due to not ever getting one single card while playing blackjack there.

This is where the serious players play. If you're a wannabe because you just watched Rounders again, think twice. If Teddy KGB had a place on Aruba, this would be it. Act accordingly ;-)

This casino is small without much variety of slot machines. There are only a few tables. Since we were staying at the Holiday Inn, we wandered in at night. Each night, there was very little activity except in the back sports book room. Didn't spend more than 20 minutes in there and had no luck.
