OK, I admit it...I am NOT a gambler so my review is basically the atmosphere and amenities. (Although I did win at penny slots once and the bells and whistles were really exciting!). We have a summer place on Leech Lake and also were able to stay in a room while we waited for some updates. The room was very... More

The times we were there, the slots were VERY tight. Can't even give you enough money to play a little time and keep your attention. We had a hotel coupon and we had to go to the Casino Guest Services to validate the coupon and then had to go back to the hotel desk to turn it in to get... More

I enjoy casinos once in awhile so I also enjoyed this one. They had a good selection of games and easy parking. It was very smoky but that's to be expected! I also won a few dollars - that helps!

We were very impressed. Our room was very clean and extremely comfortable. The staff at the snack bar and front desk were very helpful with any questions we had. The casino was clean and well kept. The snack bar offered a wide variety of items, so we didn't have to go to the buffet for a heavy meal. The second... More

This casino for not being that old is disgustingly dirty! Carpet, walls and everything in it is so smoke filled that you want to make sure you wear OLD clothes in it! New chairs were put in a few years ago but there seem to be so many sloppy smokers in this place that they continually burn the chair seats.... More

A fine place to gamble and stay if you are in northern Minnesota. The casino is rather dreary, lacking natural light and filled with cigarette smoke, and some pretty downtrodden people. Go with a group of friends and I am sure you will have a good time though.
