I guess I could be consindered a regular visitor at least three times a month. But that's only because I live locally. I'll start by saying the style is impressive and fits the local area. Down side it is the built right next to a dump and when the wind is just right... Peee U. The buffet is good at... More

We loved it here. It's huge with a lot of different restaurants and tons of slot machines. We were in the area and decided to check it out. We only got $5 in slot play but it was fun playing.

I live in Lincoln Hills, a Del Webb senior community. My wife and I enjoy wednesday evening's senior 1/2 off buffet... Plus many other perks if you tend to gamble occasionally. I have found the slots are very forgiving and all the restaurants located inside this classy casino are top notch! Quality entertainment brought to Thunder Valley Casino, is always... More

This review is primarily for the Hotel although I have been to the casino several times and will mention some things that are worth mentioning. The hotel room my wife and I stayed was very very nice. My wife ended up buying a pillow from here because she slept so good on it. Definitely didn't do any room service because... More

I have been to this casino literally hundreds of times since it opened. First off i have to say that i do not have a gambling problem i have a getting ripped off problem.

This place is a rip off, super smokey and no free drinks. The slot machines are so tight you can drop a hundred in 10min.. The only person I saw win was someone who was down 1,000 and finally broke even..Save yourself some money and go to Red Hawk, Reno or Tahoe.

There was a smokeless area for me to sit and play.would be nice if they would expand and add more machines. Surprise Diane Ross was there. Although the show was sold out when we got there, you could stand outside and just hear her outstanding performance, The casino is in a safe location, so I felt comfortable leaving my 86... More

I been playing slots for many years, and this casino has to be one if the tightest payouts I ever seen I mean you can drop a $100 into a machine and as fast as it can take it to let the next sucker in it does. You have better luck getting hit by a train in your living room... More

Love this comedian, but this venue leaves a bit to be desired. We had reserved seats which were fine. Unfortunately, because the venue is outside and the beer is cheap, you get a lot of people who talk excessively during the show. If you get an aisle seat, you'll need to deal with people walking to and from the bar... More
