Be smart and go spend your money elsewhere. The buffet is over priced crap, and the staff is even worse.

The staff at the concert venue was terribly rude. The seating was a joke for the price of the tickets. And the sound system was horrible. I will never see another show at this casino again.

I'm not sure what you mean, but the place is huge and the parking isn't the greatest. I wasn't impressed with it at all to be honest. Hard to get around and the place reeked of cigarette smoke.
