    The remodeled casino is Great! They have more different types of games. The bar and the band were awesome. I can't wait to go back.

    Crazy fun! Bars everywhere, great food, watching the horses is absolutely thrilling, and the crowds are incredible! Nothing like it in Arkansas! Adults only. Casino downstairs.
