My husband took me here for my birthday. It's the first time being there. The casino is smaller than we were used to, but it wasn't over crowded, so had no trouble finding a machine. I won a bit of money, but hubby didn't. Lunch at the alacarte restaurant was very good. We both had shrimp in a basket. Quantity... More

This is a great, little casino, tucked away in the farmland of Peterborough County. The staff are lovely, they have great entertainment , and the slots are a lot of fun. Not a lot of machines, but enough, people are very friendly, loved that!

There are a lot of reviews and even pictures here that claim there is weekly stock car racing at this facility. There is not. The pictures on this page are of Peterborough Speedway, which is a different track about 5 km away. makes one wonder about the legitimacy of reviews of any attractions in this area if people don't even...

We have only been to this casino 3 or 4 times, but we really like it. The people are friendly, the staff are excellent and it's just a nice little casino. It's probably one of the busiest casino's we've been too and the machines seem to light up more than most we've been to !!

This is a great place to go for a good night of racing. It is not fancy at all but just a fun night out with friends or family

We were all very surprised after gambling and having fun for a couple hours we decided to go out for dinner. Upon leaving we decided to try the casino for dinner. We had the rib and twice baked potato dinner that was the special of the day. It was so good. The rib was tender and flavorful. The whole dinner... More

Good night out. Had a meal in the restaurant which was ok. It was a buffet style meal. Nice to sit in comfort as you watch your horse race.

About 40 of us went to the track and slots for a fun evening. We were seated together in the dining area and had great seats for the races. The prime beef buffet was excellent--the beef was tender and the servings were generous. The line-ups were a bit of a pain; firstly to register and then again to validate the... More
