Review Detail

The casino and hotel itself are very impressive to the eye, the hotel rooms are excellent and the pool is good. When the casino first opened the slot play was okay, but as they "progress", the casino has been pulling out the higher pay percentage slots and replacing them with more and more gimmicky penny machine where the payoff pcts are quite low. Appears to me they are starting to cater more to the occasional gambler who drops in via bus, rather than the local gambler who wants their dollar to stretch a little further. The video poker machines are set at what I would consider well below industry standard payoffs. The listed slot percentage payoffs are and a near Iowa low of 91%, and with the more and more penny machines moving in I wouldn't expect that to get any higher any time soon. Now if you are looking for decent dining, good array of tables games and a nice drinking atmosphere you will enjoy it very much...but if you are a slot/video poker player, I would say you may be somewhat disappointed with your payoff.
