Seriously? Where are all the $5 table games? (Note: there aren’t any). You may only order a drink every 20 mins apparently (what are you the alcohol police? Only in Illinois🙄) we were Übering! Pro: no smoking at ANY casino in the state of Illinois)

If you are a "first timer" at the casino, they give you $10.00 gratias to use at the slots. Nice touch once you figure out the directions!
