Unbelievably smoky. Have been to several casinos and this one was one of the worst as far as smoke/ventilation. It just reeked so bad, we didn't stay. I heard their buffet is great, although didn't try it.

Not impressed with casino, especially since not of us came out ahead. They only have penny machines which gets confusing. Small amount of tables.

I'm not a gambler so this review probably doesn't mean anything, since I think most gamblers are also smokers but who knows. We did not see any entertainment.

The casino was not over crowed and had many slot machines to chose from. It was relaxing to sit at the bar and have a drink. Fun time!

Nice new building that offers much more than the old river boat did....975 slots, 4 dining areas, bars, and live entertainment. It is right across the street from the river where the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium is located.

The Diamond Jo is a fun place to spend a few hours gambling. They used to have the fun table game, "let it ride," but they got rid of it. They need to keep that game! Not super crowded on a Saturday night and not overwhelming.

This is your typical run of the mill casino. Lots of smokers inside and poor air quality. Lot's of penny machines.
