“Interesting first visit to a casino but horrible payouts”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

This was my first time in a casino and I'm hoping the memories I have of this ones machines are not indicative of other casinos. The machines burn through money. They give small payouts but you lose money on even the small payouts. Penny slots you play $0.20-$0.40 a spin and will win back a dime. Will occasionally hit a few bucks but you're better off taking the money you gamble in the machines and put in a rainy day jar.

The horses are absolutely beautiful to watch. Track area is very clean and well taken care of. Races were a pure joy to watch.

The staff that work there are great. Very friendly. I wouldn't trust the video machines as far as I could throw them though.

“Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Nice place to go play slots for awhile. Good buffet restaurant, not fancy but plenty of options. It's great that it's a non smoking place too so you don't get the nasty smoke that you get in some other casinos.

“No Horseplay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

The races are well monitored with an eye toward the well being of the animal, which is something I really admire. The animals are older, but they are not less exciting to watch. The attached casino is very clean and the attendants are very attentive and helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012 via mobile

Nice slot casino, in spring has horse racing. Nonsmoking enviroment, has events if you join-for free-you can acquire free play money, food, and points to be used at the casino. Friendly staff
