Don't play here please I've lost over 75k on slots over two years and have yet to win a hand pay. I know I seem like an idiot for going back to play, all I have as an excuse is addiction and greed. Never go please you will never win and lose all you have.

They have the Summer Concert Series during May - September, and indoor bands on the weekends. They have a beautiful Hotel, an exceptional spa, not to mention the restaurants!... More

This place has always been mediocre as far as a gambling establishment but I wanted to see the buffet and it looked pretty good but when we entered the first set of double doors you could immediately smell a strong cigarette smoke odor. So if you are not a smoker forget it you will not be able to handle it.... More

We have come here on two occasions to attend a concert. You have to walk through the STINKY Casino to get to the amphitheater. The food options before your show are a food court - heard tons of complaints about that from other patrons. We found the restaurant food to be terrible. Will eat at another restaurant OUTSIDE this Casino... More

I would not recommend Thunder Valley for the following reasons, it's loud no matter where you are in the casino from the time that you walk in the doors it's sensory overload to the max (even with earplugs in it was really loud), the cocktail service is inconsistent (we were not offered a drink for hours), the slots did not...

Very unsatisfactory visit. Very difficult to park near casino or restaurant. One small non smoking area in very large gaming floor. Tried the Red Lantern Chinese restaurant and found the food tasteless.

We were here for a 40th birthday. And most of the ladies won! It was so fun to play all the slot games. The music was entertaining and the bar with live models, while a bit freaky, certainly added to the entertainment!

Thunder Valley is a nice casino. My husband and I spent several hours there. We traveled over two hours to get there. I won enough to stay the time we were there. I did smell the smoke and it bothered my allergies. I'm getting too old to put up with the travel time and the smoke. Next time I'll go... More

Typical Indian casino. Terrible pay outs but fun atmosphere. Saw a big band concert and was surprised at how good the seating and the acoustics were.
