In the event you are heading down to see the Church Hill Downs or some other large horse racing venue, this is a way to get exposed and play cheaply. Here just before each race, you may see them as they are paraded around with their respective numbers prior to each race. One simply makes their choice, places a bet,... More

Easy access from interstate, with ample self and valet parking. End of story. Dining options are lost. Steakhouse needs a trained chef instead of cooks who aren't knowledgable. Buffet is same dishes day in and out and mostly tasteless food. The fried chicken is good but they seized serving prime rib except on w/e. Clubhouse burgers are VG but menu... More

The horse racing was very good, but the casino left a lot to be desired. The slots were the tightest that we have ever experienced. Keep your money in your pocket!

The place reeked of smoke and the carpet could use a good cleaning. We were in the area and stopped by to check it out. Left within 30 minuted due to the smell.

THis was a spur of the moment visit and did not expect the Royal Treatment that my Wife and I received there. Everyone was very courteous. Be sure to stay at the beautiful Baymont Hotel directly across the street. My wife played the slots and I enjoyed Her winning on the $.50 Machines

My husband and I checked out the casino and only stayed 1 hour. This place is EXTREMELY smoky, dirty and loud. Slots were tight but the reason we left is because it stunk so bad. We did not enjoy ourselves at all.

The slots were tight and it stunk of stale smoke. I do have to give them credit though, they had a lot of slot machines in a separate non smoking area to try and keep the non smoking customers happy.
