  • Been to this casino twice now. Small place but clean and we did win on slots the first time but no horse racing. They have a few live dates during the summer but no simulcasting at all. Looked like it...  more »
  • The slots have been recently updated and more machines have been added. I love to go watch the horses when they are racing. We have also gone to see the Canadian Tire car races. Versatile spot  more »

  • Used to be better when there was horse racing. But the food is good..when my husband and I go we have a nice dinner (great portions) and then play the slots for a couple hours. Normally we make our money back plus our dinner money with a little extra to spare. We know our limit 😃
  • The racetrack is misplaced in Google maps. Please fix it. Thanks.
