Well...not exactly...but what a surprise and what a neat and fun casino in the middle of farm country.
The staff was friendly and we had a ball with the blackjack dealers.
Now..here is something to pay close attention to.
If you smoke...its no problem! If you don't...then dont blame the casino. They allow smoking and you know that it will affect you...so..here's what you do.
Get off I-90 at I 29 and go north towards Sioux City for a few minutes and get off at exit 77...turn right.turn left at Perkins Restaurant and book a great room at a great price at America Inn hotel.
They have pool..jacuzzi..free breakfast.
Then head back to I 29 and go north this time (you'll be passing I 90 again) for about 45 miles .
Get off at Flandeau exit and follow signs for 7 miles to this cute a bb d cozy casino.
They'll give you a member card and you can play the slots..and enjoy blackjack with some of the friendliest dealers aroundm
We won 180.00 on Blackjact and 200.00 on slots. Who needs a room if you dont smoke.
Go there and try it.You'll have a great time and the buffet is out of this world
Oh yeah...if its your birthday..they give you 20 seconds in a plastic booth to try and grab all the money you want. Its a riot.
