Nice place to spend a rainy/snowy day. Lots of different slot machines to try. Very clean rest rooms and gaming areas.

Totally dismal chances casino. Almost impossible to win in and dank. You get a bad feeling in this place. Staff is not overly friendly. A lot of machines don't work properly and haven't for quite some. ie: being able to change the lines or the denomination on machines that normally have this feature. I have asked over and over to...

I was at odds for lunch one day, so thought I'd try out my luck at the Chances Casino next to my workplace. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the burger and fries. This was the real deal folks, real meat not some pre-frozen, pre-formed patty. The service was also lovely, and there was ample free parking.

A group of us were here for lunch and the 'meeting room' was reserved for us. Could seat about 10-12 and there were 8 of us. Service was good - they brought coffee and ice water to the room where glasses, cups, etc., were set up on a side table. Lunch is ordered and paid for at the concession. No... More

A small friendly casino that seems to attract seniors. I saw 1 and 5 cent machines that were utilized the most. It was just as well as I lost most of my money. A fun time if that is what you want. I would go there again.

We have been many times. Well maintained, current machines, and good point system to earn rewards. Three times per week (at the present time), buffet dinner is $10, with $5 returned for slot play

typical casino - slot machines, lots of noise and music to help feed the addiction of playing the slots.

This is one sad little casino. No fun at all to lose game after game. We lasted for about a half hour and decided if this is what BC casinos are like we will just steer away from them in the future.
