Fairly new casino near the highway making it easily accessible. The buffet is good and we have enjoyed a few shows here.

Its not easy to find the place. The Hotel was very nice, I was disapointed that the Hotel rooms, smelled like smoke, They have signs posted a non smoking hotel, but the smoke from the Casino is in the rooms. The Spa and work out room were very nice, I also liked you did not have to pay to go... More

Attended an Awards Ceremony this week for business. It turned out very nice. We had a sit down dinner, food was good, servers were nice. Not use to people being able to smoke inside places, so went home smelling like smoke. Not a gambler so didn't care if the slots paid or not. I think the casino would get more... More

I rate this casino a flat Zero. When initially started going to Thunder Valley there was a small casino. I did win on the slots on my early visits. As time went on I stopped winning and the casino. Grew larger into a result. This is due to all the lovers like me who invested with liyou'veeturn. My choice of... More

What thunder valley casino has probably done is altered the virtual reels so there are less jack pots less hits overall, but enough mid level pay outs like 50-80-100 to equal a 72% payout percentage on just about all of their machines. This place is greedy to the max their goal is to have nothing but penny slots they wont... More

I gamble way too much and have been here enough to know. The slots are completely rigged there is no denying it. Once in a while they loosen things up, but normally it absolutely horrible. I've been there four times in the resent couple of weeks playing 25 cent video poker and have gone through over $2000 dollars with out... More

I had a very bad experience at the spa last Monday. I paid over $125 for a 90 minute message. My masseur was sick and was coughing all over me during my treatment, there was a loud banging noise coming from behind the wall and I got scalded by the shower water that wouldn't cool. When I brought all this... More

For those who hit the casino once or twice a year, take a nice gambling stake you're comfortable with risking and this will probably please you. ON the plus side, it's a lovely facility, tons of machines, pretty good food, lots of parking, and you can't beat the drive if you live in Place County. BUT - on the flip... More

The shows are terrific and affordable. High Steaks restaurant is terrific. The buffet is as good and affordable as any Las Vegas or Reno buffet. The casino is smoky and the slots seem too tight. Having Thunder Valley nearby is terrific.

For the President's Day holiday, I decided to make a trip to the Thunder Valley Casino Resort with the family. Thunder Valley is located at Lincoln, CA near Roseville, CA. This Casino resort is an Indian casino, and very upscale in many ways; it's very elaborately designed, and offer all of the luxuries one can expect for a nice weekend... More
