No table games, only slots/virtual/machines

All machines will take bills $5 and up. If you expect a Vegas experience, you'll be disappointed. Most of the slots are low end knockoff versions of more popular games. Machine... read more

First, I'm a local resident and visit here daily to kill time. The entertainment is okay on Saturdays and free! Karaoke host is rude, he no following, equipment doesn't work and sound awful. No table games. Only video poker and games. Management staff are rude and could care less about patrons. Staff are friendly. Food prices increased since being managed... More

Very blah-only about 20 cars in the parking lot. Not a very welcoming place, very hard to find anyone that works there to get information from. Dark and gloomy. I joined their "club", they gave me a card, no information with it, no idea what points mean. But I managed to waste $100 and left... Don't bother, not worth your... More

First of all, I asked about getting promotions by getting a casino card. Lady said " what promotions?". Was looking for VP. All I found was in back of the restaurant, all 8 machines. Played for 1/2 hour ,was up a few bucks. Best part of this joint is the restaurant. Even the waitress there said " people come here... More

This is just an average slot parlor, wouldn't call it a casino. There are no table games and no free alcoholic beverages. Small and dark, kinda gloomy atmosphere. If you want to throw a few bucks in slot machines then it does the job. We usually visit when vacationing in Newport, something fun to do to pass the time. I... More

Casino includes restaurant and nothing more than slot machines. Environment is somewhat dingy but does provide a variety of machines for a small casino. I would recommend for a short stay when you want to just get out and do a little slot machining. The facility does include a full-service bar but drinks of all kinds must be purchased.

My wife and I along with three other couples just returned from a beautiful visit to Newport RI. We had perfect weather and a great place on the harbor to stay. All of us enjoy visiting casinos and we always stop in the Newport Grand. During this trip we had a lunch and two dinners which were both very good,... More

This is a slot-only casino with some electronic table games. I had visited here about 8 years ago. I think it had opened shortly before that. There were more slot machines here back then. When slot machines are that well spaced out, it appears that the casino is not a hit and this one was not. Machines are old, probably... More

This casino is small and not what we had expected when we first went. We thought it would offer more in the way of gaming and things to do but it is very basic. There are three floors, the 1st floor has the rewards card sign up desk, a few slot machines and a restaurant. The 2nd floor is non-smoking... More
