“Time flew by watching the Greyhounds race.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This was my first time watching Greyhounds race. The track looked nice and was well groomed. The dogs looked as if they were treated well by the trainers and seemed happy to be able to run.
We went with another couple. The ideal was to enjoy ourselves with what little time we had left before our flight. Watching the dogs race was exciting. It was even more exciting if you placed a bet. Not only did we enjoy the dogs racing but we started betting among our group as to which trainer would make it to the other end the fastest. Eventually, the rest of the crowd got into what we were doing and started playing along!
Seeing how this track is part of the Mardi Gras Casino there were beads to be had!

“Small card room, limited range of games available”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Played some poker here a couple of times in Sept 2012. There weren't that many games going on the midweek evenings I was there. Apart from the ubiquitous 1-2NL all-in push fests, there were only a few other types of game going - one time there was a single 3-6LHE game going for a while then it broke up at about 8.30 pm. The other time there was only the Florida game "2-straight" which is basically 2-2 LHE. Not that much action in these games, mostly No Foldem 5 guys to every flop type play. Not much pre-flop betting here.

I don't play slots so I can't really comment on that.
