This is a good spot for any gamblers who like the slots. I have not played at the raceway or tried the restaurants at this location. However, the ambiance and deco in the Slots area are pretty nice for a London, On. based casino (not in the real sense, since there are no table games...). Being a Vegas player,my comment... More

We went to see the harness racing and were very disappointed that the only indoor seating to view the whole track was from the restaurant which was booked solid.

People are getting more and more upset at the progressively awful payouts at the slots. I have heard many, many complaints.
