While I received a very warm greeting, I found the casino very smoky after entering. I was highly disappointed by the measly, non-separated non-smoking area which also had dirty ashtrays and people smoking in this section. Perhaps I'm spoiled coming from a place where the...More

A good mix of slots in a friendly, attractive atmosphere worked for one winner in our group of seven over three days. Personally, I lost the ranch while continuously observing big wins (from $200+ to $2,200+) for the players sitting next to me. So it’s...More

The good news is that this casino is fairly clean, although my chips kept sticking together at the roulette table(yuk!) The bad news is we spent several hours there and never won much of any thing. Low payouts, if any, (think mixed bars) and no...More

This casino is a pleasant getaway while staying at the Harrah's hotel. Although I feel that this casino is a little small as compared to the surrounding casinos, it does provide a more intimate setting for your "high risk investment" needs.

I did not stay in the hotel. I played table games and slots. I did ok on the tables for awhile. Aaron who deals roulette is really good at what he does. He engages with the guests and makes it a really fun time.
