This casino is really average. I did enjoy that it had different levels and one level was even non smoking. I was there on a Friday and it was kinda of congested with people and smokers. I was definitely glad to find a non smoking section that helped out with not inhaling too much of the cigarette smoke.

If you like places that are dumpy and sad this is your joint! No free drinks no smoking and it just basically steals money from poor people. It's just kinda disgusting.

They had three full tables of cash games No Limit Texas Hold Em at $1 / $2 blinds. Only complaint would be the lax... More

This place is 5 mins from my home. It used to give decent playing time for your money. I don't know what happened but what I experienced last night was beyond bad luck. I went to play gremlins gremlins mode for $1.50 a pull and off $30 Won $0 . That's correct not a typo $0. It boasts special bonuses... More
