Cough, cough, cough - might well be the most smokey casino I have visited. The fairly small casino has a nonsmoking area but you will soon tire of the limited selection and venture out into the haze.

Slots are dominated by penny video machines. Video poker pay schedules are not to bad, 7-5 bonus poker and 9-5 double double bonus. Most machines are single play. A very limited selection of multiplay and more modern poker games/machines. Many of the poker machine have keys that are sticky or don't function.

Cash Back was very limited but it was easy to earn a comped meal in the steak house. You have to ask about meal comps at the players club and get a voucher.

If I lived close or was staying in one of the Grand hotels I'd go back but I wouldn't drive far for the experience.

Neither of us are gamblers but we like to watch. plenty of people to watch and all kinds too. the casino is clean and well lit. we are not fans of smoking but it was not too obtrusive and our clothes did not stink when we left. I was glad to see the blackjack table minimums/limits were within my means.

Be aware that unlike casinos in larger cities like Las Vegas and Atlantic City, this casino is small. I took a friend who loves to play poker and often does in these cities but could hardly find people to fill the table. Also the non smoking areas smelled like smoke.

Hi Beach47USA- Thank you for visiting and reviewing the French Lick Casino. We are disappointed to read that you only had a "so-so" experience and we will work to improve upon the conditions you mention. Since we are small, we work hard to maintain a pleasant guest experience, including a smoke-free environment if that's what you expect. We hope you will be able to be our guest so we can serve you again.

Lots of slots, poker, High Roller room, bar lounge and a deli if you get hungry. Found it hard to win on the slots, and even when I did win, the prizes were fairly small. But, we had fun anyway---we didn't expect we'd be able to quit our jobs when we left.

I've noticed some people complaining on here about the smoke, but there is a non-smoking area.....it seemed like the smoke-handlers worked pretty well.
