Won $1000 in my first 5 minutes. Played about $20 when I hit the bonus round! My wife also won $400. So YES, I'm a fan. Seems to have a fun, energetic vibe. Everyone looks like they're having a good time. I know I did!!

Lots of games, lots of fun. Looking forward to 2019, when the new additions have been added. Nice to see a no. Smoking section, that is actually separate from the smoking section.

This casino has been around for awhile and is continuing to improve the games and atmosphere. Pleasant place to play, plenty of parking and a wide range of ways to lose your money. LOL. Fun night out.

They have everything you could possibly imagine. Just like a regular casino. Very fair. All denominations. Lots of little jackpots.
