Nice size casino with a great restaurant. Slots was little tight. Plenty of parking and security. Very crowded on the weekend, I chose to go during the week. Would definitely visit again.

Thank TweDan

The new system just implemented for free play and comps is bad. Your original system was so customer friendly it gave you the incentive ti come more than once a week , with this new system you put thousands of dollars in a get only 50-60 dollars in return money and only 15 dollars every 4 days or so. and for all the money that I put thru I get only 10 dollars in comp. Please go back to your old system or devise one that is more customer friendly,I feel that I m being ripped off because your so big so you do not have to give much back

I totally agree with joan922. It seems to me the more you play, it is a lose-lose all around. My husband and I frequent the casino, but it seems that is about to change. Do not have a problem with the change in food comps, but the biggest problem is the new point system. When the casinos get greedier, the players certainly feel it!! Take a long, hard look at the new point system and be kinder to your visitors!!!!

I go every single week, sometimes twice. This new system really is not fair for us for that go as much as we do. How do you penalize the people that go so much, but give to the people that don't go? Since the day you opened, I have gone to your facility faithfully and everytime I turn around, more is being taken away and it really makes me want to go to the other casinos. All I hear is how the other casions have better comps, and now I truly believe it! I had 107 points from Saturday March 9th and when I looked at my comp dollars, I have $23.00. REALLY???? This is what you compensate me??? The old system worked much better when you started us off at 200 points, it really sucks!!! You take away my incentive to even want to go back to your place. It's a shame you do this to your customers!!!!!!!! You have no problem taking our money but have a problem giving it out!!!!!
