We have fun going to the casino. As long as you know when to walk out the door it is fun and you may even win once in a while. People working are always friendly and easy to talk with. You or we don't win much but still fun.

After working in the Walker area we thought we would stop and try the dinner buffet. The first thing we noticed was the cloud of smoke as soon as we stepped inside. Choices on the buffet were limited and what was available was of poor quality. Restaurant staff were not very responsive to any requests and almost seemed to purposely... More

For an Illinoisian, and non-smoker, I was very surprised to discover smoking in the building. There was a 12 machine area for non-smokers. I came out even. I did see a young man win a $5600. payout! On the whole, this place was okay.

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
