We were never at this casino...very nice and easy to get to. It is nice because of the non-smoking areas...it would be nicer if there was no smoking!!!

We've been to Vegas, Atlantic city, salamanca.... and by far this was the worst experience we've ever encountered as far as a casino is concerned.
