Had a great time. I took $100 and expected to be out in an hour. I played 4 hours on $100 and could have left earlier with money in my pocket... but didnt. Ordered a burger at Flipits to go... more »
We haven’t been to this casino since it opened many years ago. We aren’t big gamblers, but we do enjoy playing slots once or twice a year. We ended up at the casino after dinner. We enjoyed... more »
Went for a nice Sunday lunch with extended family to buffet. It was nice and they made a table big enough for all of us. Still noticed the slots are way too tight. The first 3 years they opened we could spend the entire evening there having fun playing. Over the past two years or so, slots are so tight, you can easily arrive, play, and leave in an hour spending hundreds on a penny and no nickle machines. That's a shame. Keeps us away now and we used to enjoy getting out for a while a few times a week. Now we go maybe 4x a year. Big difference.
Where do I even start?? My husband and I got married in the ballroom at the casino. They turned my vision into reality. We had our ceremony with a beautiful view of the city behind us. The food was top notch and so was the service. From beginning to end, they went above and beyond. I was so impressed and happy with the turn out. I’ve been getting non stop compliments on “how beautiful” the wedding was. I would highly recommend the casino to do any event but especially a wedding. Thank you so much for making our night perfect!
