Nothing special of a casino, looks like it needs a renovation. Sportsbook on third floor. Quiet at times. Only positive is that casino was within walking distance of hotel where I was staying.

Just your average outdated casino. Went for the "Ellen" slot machines, only to find out they took them out. The pay offs not so great either.
