This is actually my favorite casino even before I won really big here.
The casino layout is circular so you never really get lost, just going in circles. Unlike Foxwoods which will lead you to dead ends and you would have to walk back the way you came from. The slot machines are also newer here than Foxwoods.
I like the shops and restaurants here. My favorite is probably the Summer Shack because of the seafood and TVs. Bow and Arrow has fifty cent wings each night and a huge TV to watch sports. There is even an indoor waterfall. The place is really grand and well designed. There are nice tile designs throughout the casino and rooms.
I must admit, the hotel lobby is located at a weird place and really far away from self park, but I will let them slide on this because this really is a nice place.
On this particular Sunday afternoon, there is a 60s rock live performance and you see all the elderly people jiving happily on the dance floor. Suddenly, you hear a wolf howling loudly. Wow, it's a mechanical wolf on top of a slot machine! This place is nuts, but in a good way.
It is so crowded here during this weekend. Holiday weekend, perhaps? And the rooms are way too overpriced. But I will probably come again.
