  • I am truly very upset with my experience at your casino this past weekend. A few of my friends and I decided to come down for the weekend, as I have only been there a time or two in the past. Friday was fine, Saturday not so much. Saturday we were gambling all afternoon, we had a few cocktails, were sitting by the bar listening to the band, I went to put my phone in my hotel room because it was dead, and upon my return , the man at the front gate wouldn’t let me in. He asked me how many beverages I had, I told him four, as that was the truth. I WAS SOBER! He proceeded to tell me that my eyes were red and that I was intoxicated so he wouldn’t let me back in. And then was calling security over to assist him. I actually thought he was kidding at first. I mean, my eyes are always red – I work 60-70 hours a week, and wear contacts. There are many reasons a person’s eyes may be red; allergies, smoke (as it IS a casino), contacts, dry, tired, etc. I then went upstairs so I could call my friends as they were still in the bar area. They met me at the OTHER entrance (yes, I know this was wrong but I was livid and I’m sorry, the man at the front gate should have called a manager as I requested). And then FOUR security guards surrounded our table and kicked me out AGAIN. I proceeded to ask them for a manager, someone above their heads to speak with, to no avail. So in all honesty I think you need to reassess your “guidelines” on letting someone enter your establishment. I don’t think that “red eyes” is a reason to deny entry. And if you are just going to kick people out for having a few beverages maybe you should re-think the bar. I mean I would have totally understood if I was belligerent, or slurring my words, or even falling over. However, I was none of those things, just enjoying girl’s night. It’s unfortunate that this happened because I can’t think of a reason that I would ever come back after the way that I was treated, and we have handed in our player’s cards. Not interested in giving establishment money only to be humiliated without a chance to defend myself or get a second opinion. And to make matters worse, I have heard 3 other stories from other people and friends that this has happened to them. I have seen a few reviews also. Word of mouth is a terrible thing. I will not hesitate to tell someone of my experience in hopes that it doesn’t happen to someone else. I just hope that someone there sees the error and fixes it before you lose any more business.
  • It seems every time I go to this casino I very seldom hear any jackpots. There is plenty of them in the high rollers area if you have the funds to play $5 slots. Went a few days ago, the machines we always played at east entrance were gone. Guess we will go back to Altoona! At least you win enough to play there! Your casino has gone way down hill!
  • By far the best casino around worth the drive, the buffet could use more variety but good anyways
  • Earned a $1 slot play and went to withdraw it but I guess you have to have $5 to withdraw.... why even put $1 available to withdraw if your not even able to... upgrade your system and get some of the new machines out they're and some friendlier attendants would be a plus to... just sayin
