The casino and dog track were well maintained and surprisingly not smoke filled. Nice area a bit off the beaten path. Always better when you win! The slots were not brand new but not ancient ones either. Tables were full. Good concerts in the casino...More

Heavy smoke smell even before you enter casino. The indoor walkway from the Hilton to casino was nasty. Smelled like an old ashtray. Even permeates into the hotel lobby. Not appealing at all. Casino itself has the feeling of "slapped together". No excitement, seemed tired...More

I really enjoy Q as a great getaway for a few hours, and the fact that a massive gaming conglomerate doesn't benefit from my losses is also appealing. Like any casino, I would suggest going in off-hours. I'm not afraid of people, but I think...More

Mostly for gamblers, but great entertainment options, nice Midwest buffet, great sports bar area, clean, friendly service, reasonably priced. Good selection on menu with completely remodeled and redesigned restaurant. Packs the house on weekends and great crowds during the week. Well stocked bar.

I should start off by saying my wife and I are not big gamblers. We were staying at the hotel, so stopped in after dinner. The place is full of smoke, so if you like that you will like this. It is fairly nice inside...More

Didn’t gamble. Walked through to get to restaurant on site. Felt and smelled like I sat in an ashtray. Disgusting. Will not go back to restaurants located inside because of casino smell. Needs better ventilation.

Unfortunately, I cannot answer your question. I have been a patron of the casino, but I do not work there. I do not know how they arrive at their figures or percentages. I would be surprised if the casino answers you, but... More
