First, outside drinks are not allowed. I had a coffee and the security guard came up to me and asked me to get rid of it. I went outside and finished it and went back in. He thanked me. I signed up for their players club. They gave me $15 extra because I showed them my lift ticket from Mammoth.... More

The city of Bishop is my half-way point between Palm Springs and Lake Tahoe, so it a must for a fluid adjustment break, a stretch, and a bite to eat....there are a few pretty good restaurants there. I also needed gas and the low prices at the Casino pump got my eye...and I decided to take a food break as... More

Not at all glamorous like some Nevada casinos but a fun stopover on the 395 and one of the cheapest gas around

I liked the slot machines even though I didn't win any money here. It's not a very big casino but it's the only one out here and seems to be very popular. We went to kill a few hours and have some fun.

Very friendly staff. Signed up for players card and got free credits and a couple decks of cards. The Casino is kind of small but not to smoky or crowded. We enjoyed our selves very much.

We go to Bishop often and at every stop we gas up at the paiute palace and use the potty, not to mention getting a snack for the ride home. Everybody is friendly and we usually run into somebody we know.

When walking in I realized this was not a regular casino. Not impressive, very outdated. Slots were ok, but again, a little run down. Not sure why, but in one section we were all fighting off little bugs. They were popping out of nowhere. Crawling up your leg or arms. It was pretty bad. Bathrooms should be picked up more... More
