been there 12 times.have only seen 2 hand pays.i think all machines are set at 80 per cent or less.the workers are nice but the pay outs are very poor. 500 dollars will last you about 1.5 hours on the dollar machines. the quarters never pay, just take yours money more slowly.i plan never to return.

A combination of good harness racing and the new casino. The racing facility has been renovated and there is an increased emphasis on entertainment, with music and other activities between races. The casino is obviously brand new and enjoyable, even though I lost.

My sister and i played almost every machine in the building , the most payoff was not even $5.oo over any $20 we spent. I was so dissapointed , were not big gamblers but we don't like unfair gaming, I think the State of
Ohio should test there machines , I believe thier soaking the new customers to pay off thier debts , and that no one absolutly no one will make a differance thier except to come out brokeeeeeeeeee?

We have gone there a few times now. The slots only are is very nice, clean and Vegas like. It gets much to crowded on the weekends but that will change a little as time goes by. Slots seem somewhat tight but my wife has done very well on 25cent and dollar slots. Free drink machines are found in two different areas. Overall I'm glad to have ths as an entertainment option. It's a great diversion every once in awhile not far from home.
