Visited on 1/20 with my husband, we both play video poker, if you get 4 cards to a suite, you NEVER get the 5th to make a straight flush, stay away from these machines. The woman who greeted us at the entrance around noon was very friendly and answered my question with a smile, however I will not be back.

Didn't even realize this 6 year old facility existed until I was on a country music artist's website with information she was performing there. We decided to travel about an hour and a half down from central NJ to take in the show and were pleasantly surprised with our entire experience.

The free valet parking was nice. The inside of the casino seemed nice and had a lot of eateries. What I didn't... More
