“Tight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The casino is old and dark. The poker machines are very, very tight I think because of the few people who go there. Then again, it's probably because the machines are tight. However, the bar tender, Anna, is a doll. We have known her for at least 5 years. She always makes us our special drink.

“Nice Neighborhood Casino”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

It's a small casino with plenty of slots and tables. It's never terribly crowded. The staff is nice, and bathrooms are clean.

“Okay --like most Casinos”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This Casino opens at 1300 which we were not expecting. We thought it would be open earlier. The casino was about what you would expect. If you like video poker or the slots, you may want to get some directions as some of the machines do not work and record like the machines do in Lasw Vegas. All in all it was a good afternoon at the casino--and not crowded.

“Average Casino - Limited Slot Choices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We were staying really close to the Hollywood Casino so it made for a easy walk up the hill to donate... I mean gamble... some money. We won a little here and there, but mostly we lost. Not that winning has to do with the overall raiting, but if we won a lot it would have helped!

They have a limited selection of slots and other games. It was clean and didn't smell like smoke. Some of the staff were great and others no so much. It was a great way to kill some time when we didn't feel like exploring the island. The rewards card offered a good cash back value compared to others.

If you are using the reviews on TripAdvisor to select a casino to go to on SXM I would skip this one. Others on the island are much nicer and have a better selection of games. If you are staying close and don't want to drive elsewhere then it's at least worth a visit!
