Karaoke contest at the ozone club is not worth it. Based on applause, and then when you go to put in a song, the woman ignores you. See, male karaoke hosts are so much better!! Anyway, spend your time and money in the casino, you'll have a lot more fun!! And sing karaoke someplace else, maybe Breakers in mullett lake... More

Before we stopped here I read a lot of reviews about a smokers paradise, but it really wasn't that bad. I'm from southeastern Michigan and the casinos in Detroit are way worse with smoke then here. We stopped to play some slots and had a great time. I recommend for anyway looking for a clean place to gamble

Beautiful casino design on outside. Many of the machines match the seniors that seem to be their biggest customers. I think they could use a outside casino management company to help them loosen up their slots. Betting 40 and winning 5 is not winning. It would be nice if free games on some machines would actually activate once every $20.

They got rid of their Michael Jackson Penny Slot Machine and changed the face of slot play forever! Seriously, I was here 2 years ago and enjoyed playing the Michael Jackson Penny Slot and Music Machine. it had a Rock and Roll chair with speakers behind your head and Played some of Michael's biggest hits when you won.

I have been to several casinos in my travels, both in the US and out, and basically there wasn't anything at this one that made it stand out. This disappointed me as it is a relatively new casino. We went late in the evening and found that a lot of the areas were closed. Not really impressed.

It was a very pleasant experience at Odawa. Their staff was very friendly and accomodating. They ran a good and efficient tournament that I played in. Their slot machines were a little dated but there were plenty to choose from. Did not get a chance to eat there.

Staying at a Bay Harbor hotel also allows you 20 dollars in slot play, and with that I won back 20 so left ahead. Enjoyed the pizza slot machine..

The view from the big windows is beautiful. It looked like it had nice restaurants, even thou we did not eat there. They try to keep the smoke under control in the casino but it's hard with so many people smoking.

Nice clean, friendly casino. Large selection of various slot machines with various play amounts. Did have nice success at the slots. Ate at the restaurant with premade carry out sandwiches, wraps , salads and other fast food . Very good and fresh, some of the better food I had at smaller local non Vegas Casinos.

Even when winning a jackpot of four hundred dollars, they are still hand paid. I realize it is saving jobs, but I can't stand the waiting, especially when you have a deadline to meet. The payouts in this casino are horrible!!! The music is very loud and the drinks are not offered very often. I think I'll stick to Vegas... More
