Typical slots parlor

Typical slots parlor with video poker, keno and roulette. Very easy to find as its right off 87. Parking is free and there's a shuttle from the lot to the front door.

Why oh why does anyone think they can win at the Casino. The food is overly priced and the machines are set up for you to lose. Grate tax money for the state but no money in your pocket.

I have visited twice this casino because it takes me 45 minutes driving instead of 2 hrs to atlantic city. It's a decent casino plenty of slot machines for everyone. The crowd is mostly elderly people who I feel bad for when they have to wait the long line for the promotional desk. I had sat next to rude people... More

I came to celebrate my birthday here with my boyfriend and I had a lot of fun! It was my first time here and I went to the guest services table we're registered for a card with them and was given a voucher/coupon book. It has a lot of great deals inside. We went to one of the restaurants that... More

We went because we were going to a concert. I think we're spoiled by gambling out in the west and I don't mean Las Vegas. Places that aren't as crowded and the options for dining are varied. It's okay but I wouldn't go back just to gamble.

It is fun whether you are gambling or dining. It also has entertainment if you just want to have a drink and listen to music. If you're really enjoying yourself you can get up and dance to live music

As casinos go this place is not very special. The place is clean, there is a lot of security, and since the renovation, it is larger and more spacious.,The games are not very interesting. I like interactive games and there arent many. They are kind of boring. he other thing that I didn't like is the lack of other things... More
