  • Always enjoyed the Horse track, the horses are fun to watch and your odds are posted and races run fair. The Casino is just a cash cow for the owners. Don't play the slots unless you won't to lose.....  more »
  • Don't go here to win! We dropped a grand and didn't see any return. Didn't see any payouts during the four hours. Couldn't even get the FM barmaid to acknowledge me, while playing the machines. She would ask everyone else!! My husband had to buy two drafts At seven dollars each! Then ask Her to give me one. Nothing is Free!!!
  • The worst casino in the entire continental United States! this is not a one-time I lost my money review this is a I've lived here all my life and watch the casino from its inception review. It's very glamorous and glittery I will give them all the credit in the world that they keep nice equipment they are clean but they're payouts are atrocious. Now the racetrack is an entire separate entity and it is amazing.I hope and I pray that when they build their 11-story resort that they will change some of their payouts to favor their players a little bit more.
  • We were here for the horse races. This was my first time betting on horses. I asked three different staff and none of them knew how to place a bet. Another customer explained it to me and it was easy. Had a great time. Beer was reasonable. Clean bathrooms
  • What kind of casino doesn’t offer poker? There’s one table for it but it’s ultimate hold ‘em, which is against the house. It’s not a bad place to go if you enjoy slots, I just wish they had more live games. Also, I do not like the fact that you are allowed to smoke there. I left there smelling heavily of cigarettes and did not enjoy it.
  • This is a very nice place! We went to the casino side, since there were no races at the time. I love to play Texas hold em! I was intrigued by the combination of traditional dealer and RFID technology. I had a blast! Much more relaxed than Vegas.
