“Use to enjoy it going here, but has gone down hill!”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

I use to enjoy going to this casino. It use to be one of my favorites. The casino use to be nicely decorated, but they changed to put in more slot machines and now it is cramped. Their rewards program use to be great, but has really gone down hill big time! It use to be only 40 credits to get a free buffet, but they change that to 1000 credits! For each credit I figure out you have to put about $5 into the slot machines just to get 1 credit. The Buffet use to be very good with a very nice atmosphere. But they moved the buffet to the other side of the upper floor and remodeled it. Once the remodeling was done their buffet has become absolutely horrendous, I wouldn't even let my Dog Eat their!!!

“It's a casino!”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

I like coming here, I really do but lets be honest. It's a casino! It's not Vegas or Atlantic City, it's Missouri. They do stay fairly up to date on the games and recently there has been a big overhaul with some of the old games either gone or put in the back. The newer ones are fun for a minute or two but they will take you money as fast as you can blink. Even though a part of it is smoke free, unless you walk out the exit before hitting the other side - you will get smoked. Drinks are pretty much self service but they do come around some. I've known a couple of people who have actually won some real money here but mostly it's you give them yours.

“Another casino”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

Harrah's casinos are all pretty decent, and this one is no exception. Clean, plenty of free parking, and a nicely done casino. Very good buffet; you would have to go to Las Vegas to find better. Great selection of food here. The games are all typical casinos, designed to bleed you dry of all your money. Pretty slot machines with flashing lights that rob you blind. Blackjack games with 6-deck shoes that make sure you don't stand a chance against the casino. The casino is happy when you're losing, and very UNhappy when THEY are losing, so they rig everything to make sure that the only losing in the place is done by YOU. Go there for the buffet, but try not to gamble.

“Always a Good Time”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

I really enjoy my visits to Harrah's. I do not live close so I only make it out there a few times a year. I enjoy the selection of eateries and the placement of bars and drink stations. My only wish is that they would have table games on each side of the casino. They seem to be crammed together on one side.
