My husband and I travelled here to attend a concert in their showroom. I have been to many casinos in the US, and across Washington state. This was by far the most unpleasant one. Parking was difficult. There is no ventilation or air circulation in this place. The thick smoke in the air is vile. A lot of the clientele... More

I told him that you should not be asking questions unless you are sure. He ask immature questions unbecoming of a supervisor! When the lady give us my comp, I tore if in front... More

The casino has very good airflow, so its as good as the casinos in Vegas. Neither myself nor wife smoke and its bearable, the next dy the clothes you wore do not smell like smoke. They has the BEST program for membership. Gamble for 2 straight hours without leaving, and then come back and get a $25 coupon which will... More

The casino was okay. I've been to bigger so it was definitely on the small side. The lobster fest buffet was good, there was a decent variety. My father enjoyed and that is all that matter. There are a lot of slot machines and a huge smoking section. I suggest this for a mature crowd, 40s and up. My husband... More

The table games were okay. There was a bit of a problem with some of the patrons' smoking bothering the other patrons and casino staff.

Had a fun time. Lots of table games, craps and machines. Staff was great. Pit bosses did not interact much with players, but consistently distracted dealers with conversations not related at all to the games. Was a bit smoky but there is large no smoking areas. Would like to come back again.

We came to see Tim Allen. We had "VIP" seats, if you call being crammed in narrow rows of kitchen chairs "VIP" in a metal barn filled with smoke and a marginal environment VIP. Even the casino looked wore down and cramped.

Not enough handicapped parking. Too much of the casino is for smokers. 3 hour wait for buffet with nothing vegetarian except white rice. Tight machines and way too crowded.
