A wide and diverse venue unparalleled in most similar sized communities. The Senior's horse racing events are an excellent entertainment value and not to be missed.

The Western Fair SLOTS are a scam; Stay away and go to a real Casino that occasionally pays. I had a bonus with full maximum bet after playing and losing on the same machine in excess of $300.00. It spinned 10 free spins for a total of zero coins; I complained to an official with a wakie takie who just smiled and walked away. Really, zero- unheard of in the casino business in my experience !

First off I do have to say that some of the Slot Attendants are exteamly friendly, kind and wonderful to deal with.

If you want to spend less than $100.00 then stay away!!! The new Blazing 7's 3 Coin 25cent progressive machines are terrible. I have never seen anything so bad in my many years of going to the Casinos. It is so sad that you have to spend anywhere between $300 and $1000.00 to win a jackpot of maybe $383.00. I think it is disgusting the way they have the machines set up now. Never have I seen a machine that you put $300.00 into and not get a set of sevens whether it be mixed or solids. At least before you would see some of the jackpots go off now you can sit in there for five hours with all six machines being played and not a single jackpot be hit.

Many of us steady players who play only the Blazing 7's no longer go into the casino due to the above problems. I will drive to Niagara Fallls to play it is well worth my time at least there I do not have to spend $300.00 on a machine to get back maybe $50.00. It is too bad that they take the best machines and the dedicated steady players and screw us over. Yet they say it is random that the machine pays.....Then why in one night did only one of the six machines pay 9 jackpots and the other five machines pay nothing? Three of the remaining five machines took in over $2300.00. They sure know how to take all the fun and enjoyment out.

Only thing missing at the Slots and Casino is the Poker and Blackjack tables, or any kind of card games.

Over 750 slot machines in the following denominations $0.05, $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $5.00. Games include: 5x Pay, Blazing 7's, Wild Cherry, Double Diamond, Red, White & Blue, Black & Gold, and QuarterMillion$ Progressives. They also have standardbred races all winter long. Off-track betting is available year round. In September, there is the added attraction of London's lively Western Fall Fair, a tradition that has continued for over 100 years.
