“Very basic casino.”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

This casino has a convenient location, just off the interstate. However, it is very smoky--one can smell smoke even in the non-smoking area. It was decorated nicely for Christmas. Available food is very basic--not much choice. It has only slots, not even video poker.

“Small but fun”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

They let you gamble at 18 here. Great for people under 21 but for people over it can get a little annoying. The casino is much smaller than the one in Baraboo but it does the trick.

“Going Downhill FAST”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This USED to be a somewhat fun place to go, now it is just a dump! Security, has no authority, so they don't do a darn thing to clear out the low-lifes who lay all over the machines or sit there and play the free machines all night. Its sad when even the staff comes up and stares at you while you are playing. There are too many younger kids that come in this place because it is a Class II gaming establishment (Bingo). This is not true Bingo either. Noticed on our cards that there were times we had straights and various combinations that should have won and the machines did not pay. Also there are too many times when the end of session comes up, turning the card to all red circles. Happened seven times in a row. That should NOT happen. The casino is too smokey, even in the non-smoking section due to poor ventilation. Not very clean either. They can keep their comps and their money. Last time I'm coming here. I can't stand coming here.

“Once is enough.”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

One visit is enough. Don't waste your time here. Small, smoky mess. Did not win a thing either. Won't be back.

“A casino without a bar?”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Slots let you win once and a while and the poker room is not too bad. They bring in music now and then and the Brett Michels show was a good time but really a casino without a bar... What gives when the sister casino for Ho-Chunk in the Dells as numerous bars and restaurants. Plenty of parking
