Went there with hubby to get my gambling fix in. Closest casino to us compared to Horseshoe or Ho Chunk. Took us about an hour twenty to get there, an hour back instead of two hours.

Small and crowded. Not enough video poker choices, and none for under $1.00. No quarter video poker machines.

The casino was very nice. New and good assortment of games. However the table limits were so high, we couldnt stay long. I know gambling is just that, but it would be nice to be able to play $5 or $10 table games, to enjoy the experience a little longer.

Easy to park! NO outside walking! Just find a" green light" marked parking space walk a short distance inside the parking garage to an in closed walkway to the casino and restaurants. Very nice layed out and planned casino no matter what the weather very easy to get in and out of this casino.
