Clean professional casinoe. the people who work there are polite and friendly. On a Thursday night it was not very crowded but there were enough players to have all the games operating.

I don’t gamble often but like to play roulette occasionally. Compared to other casinos I’ve been to, this one is small, smoky and doesn’t have a lot to offer outside of gambling.

I do not know about that one. I have never seen anyone do that, mostly people are just walking around with a bottle of water or beverage. Never saw any coolers.
