My overall appeal to this casino is nice. They have a beautiful hotel and plenty of places to snack and eat at, the area around the casino is generally industrial. I liked that the exit from in-912 was the actual exit for the casino. I've been to horseshoe many times and driving from calumet to the casino is such a drag with all the lights/traffic. This was way easier to get too!
The casino is an actual boat! Which means there are several floors, and you will find yourself cramped at times. All the cool "main" slots are in the entranceway, floor 2, which is where you will generally find most people play. But go to the other floors and they are usually not as busy.
As with my main general complaint as a non-smoker, I absolutely hate hate hate the smoky atmosphere. I came around noon and it wasn't so bad, however later in the day I started to stink!
The non-smoking slot area is ridiculously small and at the top floor, which generally makes no sense because smoke rises haha…but oh well.
Great slots, friendly staff, nice property. Will be back soon.
