machines didn't pay out well. I forgot my umbrella at one of the machines I was playing on and it wasn't turned into lost and found. The chairs and machines were dirty, holes in the chairs and the machines had ashes, dirt and dust on them.

Too far from everything and extremely tight slots unless you play the minimum; once you raise your bet they shut down tighter than a drum...we did not enjoy going there at all.

We went to play there and had pizza at one of their restaurants. Pizza was good. We were there for more than 45 minutes playing in the casino before anyone came to offer drinks. The slots were also tight and lost a lot of money.

We stayed at Horseshoe and drove over to Louisiana Downs 5/31 and 6/1, to play some comp coupons. The horse races were going on both days. There were a lot of cars in the parking lots, but the casino wasn't crowded. Guess everyone was watching the races. In previous trips they gave you a free meal after earning 30 points... More

Louisiana Downs offers it all, para-mutual racing, simulcast from many tracks with a clean friendly, family friendly atmosphere. Window staff is always cheery and helpful, always happy to explain bet options. Where else can you get an afternoon's entertainment for $20.00?

I live within 20 minutes of Louisiana Downs and we love to go. During racing season there is so much to do that you just don't get bored. One of the great things about it is that it is kid friendly on the racing side and the buffet. I don't have kids but I have had nieces and nephews come... More

Slow day for the races, weather was chilly and damp but we had a great time. Husband raved about the buffet and I thought we had lost an Uncle, but found him in the Casino. Casino was clean, bright and has a good selection of slot machines. Disappointed that I could not find Video Poker, but I got over it.... More
