  • Different night the Casino with friends. Popular car valet service, as well as that of wardrobe. Otherwise a regular Casino, without abusing it, sometimes it can be pretty fun

  • Casino is very modern and clean, equipped with any type of game circled. many different types of slot machines, table games and a section devoted to horse racing. Staff helpful and friendly as well! I spent an evening, but I will definitely be back! The only drawback, the acquaintances on the evening of November I was there it wasn't really that great, there were several people somewhat questionable ... but on the other casinos ' is always a risk, right?
