I always have a good time. Staff is always helpful and pleasant. The drinks keep coming all the time and the waitresses are the best. Rooms are remodeled and comfy! As for entertainment, if you don't like the music here go over to the Horse Shu, they have music too and a great Mex

There isn't much to do in Jackpot, but Cactus Petes is a great place to stay. The rooms have plenty of space and the beds are good, It was also very quiet in the rooms. Went to the dinner buffet which had a selection to make anyone have a full belly, The staff there is great and friendly. It seemed...

This casino/hotel was a very pleasant experience! If tripadvisor had a higher rating than 5.....like 10 that's what I'd rate this facility! All of the staff was beyond helpful and gracious....the best I've ever experienced at any resort facility.....really!

Reserved 2 rooms for Sammy Hagar and Whitesnake concert. Front desk upgraded us to corner rooms across from each other for $20 each. Rooms were in perfect condition, paint, carpet, bedspreads, lamps and flat screen tv. Bathroom was clean. The only thing negative was the moldy smell coming from the drain. It needed Drano in the sink and tub. Our...

Room is excellent...top notch buffet...but STAY AWAY FROM THE CASINO!!!!!! By Vegas standards, the dealers are amateurs. They do not have a fully staffed Craps table, for example, so they make mistakes. Bad enough to NEVER stay here or play here again. I rarely have these problems in a real gambling town, like Reno or Vegas, but here in a...
