Huge public areas. Casino was well laid out and enjoyable. They had a good band the evening we visited with no cover charge. In fact, you could join in and dance even without ordering a drink. It was a few days before Fat Tuesday, so people were in the right mood.

If you want to have a luxury casino experience, then go to L'Auberge Du Lac across the lake, or better yet, book a flight to Vegas.

However, if you want a place that caters to people who have less than $1,000 budgeted for a weekend gambling trip, then this is a good choice. You can find table games with a $5 or $10 minimum, but please be careful because they have some 6:5 games that are labeled as "blackjack" tables. Everyone knows that true blackjack pays the player $15 for a blackjack with a $10 bet. The 6:5 tables pay you $12 instead. This might not seem like much, but since you get about 3 blackjacks an hour even at a slow table (once every 21 hands approximately), this difference will cost the $10 better $9 an hour, and increases the house edge roughly 4X as compared to true blackjack.

That said, if you can avoid the 6:5 traps, and you don't need to be around pretty people, then this might just be the place for you. Comps are pretty easy to get, and the prices are relatively low. The casino is clean and safe.

we didn't really enjoy this casino. it was a little more roomy then most 'boat' casinos, but still feels like a boat. There were plenty of slot machines, a little table action going on, but no one apeared to be having any fun................

New carpet, paint, and seats means this casino has a refreshed look to enhance its ample table games and three floors of slots. We were thrilled with the friendly staff, frequent stops by our waitresses, and the quality of play at the $10 blackjack tables.
It's not Vegas, but it's three hours from home, and the attached hotel is a great value since it's been updated too. We will return.

The Isle was one of the first casinos to open in Lake Charles; still housed in the original ships that are now docked but had to go out on the water according to original gambling laws. Now, it's pretty run down, poor food and not a great place to visit.
