I have been playing at this venue for years and it has been my favorite Casino for years. Yes it is smoky, yes some of the slots are older and for the love of the 21st Century put some FLAT screen HDTV's in the hotel rooms! They could definitely use more restrooms as the slot areas can be a hike to the facilities depending on where you are playing.Those are the negatives; the pros by far outweigh the cons.
The My Choice program is as good as any comp program in the Industry. When you hit "Preferred" status you receive a free trip out of the Country, a trip to Vegas and Cruises. Not to mention food, golf, spa, hotel, shopping comps, VIP events, special lines, promotions, etc. Elite and Owner's Club just multiply the comps at a higher level as well! These comps and "status" follow you to all of the sister properties of Belterra and I can not find a program that comes close even at the higher echelons then their program does. Even if you are not at a higher tier you can still earn food, hotel and cash comps a lot easier here than in other programs.
Casino Staff: Best in the region. The dealers are friendly, high class, funny and most have been here for years. Pit bosses are fun, patient and treat you like you are valued whether you are at a $5.00 table or a $100.00 table. The cocktail waitresses work hard and are readily available when needed.
Slots: Can be loose at times and then tighter than grandma's canning jars at others. They do have a variety of slots from pennies a piece to one hundred dollars + a spin.
Blackjack: Great variety of 21 derivatives with a few side bets mostly 21+3 (9-1 odds on the side bet) and "Lucky Ladies (a 20 type side bet from 4/1 - 1800/1 odds). Dealers do hit a soft 17 but Black Jack does pay out at 3/2 and there are plenty of dealer shuffled and non-CSM tables available. They always have $5.00 tables available for the newbies as well.
Craps, Pai Gow and Poker are available as well as a lot of other games.
This is a smaller casino but it has world class comps and the Casino Hosts that work here are second to NONE in my opinion. A great "in the middle of nowhere" Casino with some serious Vegas style comps. This has been and will be my favorite casino anywhere and I have enjoyed Casinos from Macau China to San Diego and everywhere in between!
