Nice hotel, so-so casino

surprised by all the smoking allowed inside. Definitely NOT Vegas; unless you are familiar with a few old, small casinos off Fremont Street.

Friendly staff, good games, not so good atmosphere. The place is all worn out much like the rooms in the hotel. It was like walking into a casino that is seeing its last days. :)

My wife and I visited the casino for about an hour. I found the casino quiet but it was entertaining for a little bit. But then we were tired from a busy day and decided to go to our room to rest

Although I enjoy the surroundings of the casino...there is a lot to be improved...like changing the carpet and improving the airconditioning in the non-smoking area (which is cramped!!) The bathrooms need to be updated and maintained...the Waterfront Hotel is quite impressive so the Casino needs to keep up with it!!

Although the casino is very small and from the 70's era, I still had fun. All table games are dealt by hand and play is very slow. If you must get your gambling fix taken care of, it will do the trick, just don't expect much. Mostly set up for the Asian baccarat crowd.

Every time I am in waterfront Lahug, I am visiting the casino. Together with friends, it is mostly a bit funny. I am not a gambler but it is interesting to watch the players. The staff is friendly and you will feel well and safe there.

assistants not available for players with problems and management allow players to reserve machines by leaving minimum credits on the machines while playing on others. A sad excuse for a casino and the only place on the complex that allows smoking.never saw anyone win .

By nature, I am a gambler so I love most casinos. I play black jack and I win more often than I loose, so I enjoy the place. They have a wonderful restaurant there that is a bit pricey, but the food is very good. On the negative side, there are many smokers, and they have some strange rules which... More
