Exterior of the casino is very pretty - looks like an old riverboat. Inside - not so. Buffet is not good at all. We have been to casinos in Las Vegas, Louisiana, most of the casinos in Mississippi and one in Alabama. In my opinion, Ameristar is one of the worst and I would not go back. We only stayed and played for about an hour but that was more than enough.

This casino seemed to have all the necessary needs for a little gambling fun. First the buffet was pleasantly adequate, lots a selections to choose from. After that we tried our luck with the slots and roulette, but guess it wasn`t our day. Actually I didn`t see anyone smiling when they left, but can only assume somebody won something! Wonderful view outside...situated right on the eastern bank of the Mississippi river. Will return later to get my money back! Hahaha...

Thank Johnny L

This is your typical riverboat casino buffet. Overpriced, dirty with rude persons behind the buffet line. Most of the waitresses are friendly and efficient as they are working for tips

The Ameristar casino is the largest one in Vicksburg. We visited the Ameristar, Diamond Jacks and the Riverwalk all on the same day. This was our first time to Vicksburg and these three casinos. We signed up for players cards at all three casinos and the Riverwalk was the only one that gave us a $5.00 credit for signing up along with a great little coupon book offering coupons to not only their own restaurants on the premises but also to other restaurants in the area. The other two casinos didn't offer anything for signing up.

We were not impressed with the Ameristar at all. The casino itself might look fancy but the slots were very tight. If I put a $20 in a penny machine and play a 40 or 50 cent bet I like to be able to play on it for at least 20 minutes or so but not the case here. I'd put $20 in and it was usually gone in 10 minutes. I had that experience at most every machine I played in there except for the $40 I won on a Spartacus machine. I walked in there with $120 and within one hour I was down to $40 and that was just betting 40 cents at a time !!

Also, they had a few of what they were calling "new" machines but those are the machines I've been playing on in the Oklahoma casinos for the past 2 years. I was surprised that a casino of this size had as many old machines as they did. We pretty much had an almost identical experience at Diamond Jacks.

Usually, if I go in a casino and lose my money that fast I never go back. I played the same amount of money at Riverwalk for four hours and left with $40 less than what I came with. I played several machines at the RW that were give and take, give and take for a long time....that's what I like.

We'll never go back to the Ameristar.
