Built between 1905-1908 to resemble a 17th-century country estate, Duluth's 39-room "American Castle" retains the majority of its original furnishings and art and, amazingly, closely resembles the way it looked when its owners, the Congdon family, first occupied it in 1908. Situated on a wooded lot, the mansion boasts spectacular views of Lake Superior.

This years trip to Duluth for Memorial weekend and out family's annual trip to Fon-du-Luth casino was better than in years past. It seems like they finally put in a venting system to help with the cigarette smoke and there were a few new slot machines. This is a small casino though so don't get your hopes up. Also, the...

Casino backed out on a partnership they had with the city of Duluth.... has gone downhill since then. Don't waste your time or money there.

Atfer spending the day in Duluth, this is a nice place to end the day. The casino is dated, but they do have some of the newer slot machines. They are busy at times so it can be hard to get on one of your favorites, but grab a drink and just wait or try something new.

If you enjoy playing outdated machines, this is the place! Black Bear and Hinklley are much nicer places to gamble. This casino is located in a troublesome area with shady characters nearby and in the casino. The staff seemed friendly enough. None of my machines I played did a thing and I lost $200 in less than an hour!

This casino is terrible. You might as well just throw your money out the window and keep on going. If you looking to have a relaxing fun time you won't find it hear. Dirty and needs to be updated and cleaned up. A lot of local 1cent players.

Stopped by on a Friday evening, hadn't been up for over 5 years but I was still archived in their system. The staff was very friendly and they were having a special event with giving away lots of cash. Very fun, glad we went!

This casino is notorious for attracting the worst kinds in the area. Our visit proved that it was VERY smoky environment with very few options for entertainment. No restaurant. You'd be better off spending your money at any of the nearby pubs and restaurants, including Blackwater, Tycoons or Coney Island.

A very scary place. Lots of shady people walking around and it was very dirty. I would not go back. I didn't stay long at all.

They had a lot of the current games that I like...their staff is super friendly and helpful. We didn't win but we didn't lose it all either, the machines kept us playing just long enough. Points rack up pretty fast, I went home with a promotional gift. We had fun!
