“Nice small casino...not no smoking...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Nice small casino with mostly one and five cent slots. Very easy to get to and lots of available parking in attached parking garage. We went there to see a show at their Mississippi Moon Bar. It is over the river in Iowa so you must remember that they don't have no smoking law there if that makes a difference to you....

“Fun but...too much smoke”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The games payout as you would expect from any casino. Remember that they would not be in business if we won every time. ha ha The negative comes from all fo the smokers. Maybe someday they will make a better air filtration system.

“Diamond Joe nice casino”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The casino is close to Grand Harbor Resort and Waterpark. It has a big bright nice bowling alley on the top floor that can be accessed by everyone including children. There is a sports bar with burgers and a buffet, but we didn't get the chance to try either one. It was clean and busy, but not hard to navigate. You can still smoke in some areas inside if that happens to be a deal breaker or maker.
