Moderate on the slot payoffs with many bonuses. Machines considers a ‘Good’ payoff to be $14-$25 dollars on a $2 bet. Coin flips equal about $40-$70 for a $3 bet. Oriental machines were quite tight, unlike the standard slots [such as Buffalo, Secret Gardens, and Stinkin’ Rich]. In fact, Big Bang Theory slot was consistently hitting on the $3-$5 bet for bonuses and high payoffs. Casino personnel extremely courteous, helpful, and friendly. Table games were $5 before 7:00 pm, then go to $10. Didn’t play any table games as all were full. Keno and Bingo were available, while there wasn’t any craps or roulette [not even the slot versions]. Casino is smoky and doesn’t offer comp drinks. Adult beverages are reasonably priced with $4 for a mixed drink, $3 for beer and wine. Hotel is excellent – clean throughout, immaculate and large rooms, comfortable beds, manicured grounds, plenty of parking, excellent pool facility, and exceptional service. Will definitely stay here again when in Tucson. Food at the buffet was fair, because of the limited items. Summary: Great place to stay, solid restaurant; Slots fairly loose for bonuses.

It has been a couple of years since I visited this casino. I thought the last time I was there that they had improved a bit but it is back to being terrible. It is dirty, machine sticky, I saw no one wiping machines, sweeping, etc. I saw them picking up trash but that was all.
The slots are so tight they squeak. It is a shame they can advertise lose slots and it not be that way.
Very disappointed with this casino. Will not go back.

These are the tightest machines in Tucson! I have been to this casino numerous times and walked in with $1500 and left within 45 minutes after losing it all and winning not one red cent!

The high limit corner is crap! I have a feeling that theses machines are set at the 80% payout, which is the lowest they will pay.

Stay away!!

I've often thought that Border Patrol should just set up a check point by this casino entrance. Territorial and guarded players hover over their machines like vultures on the prey. The place is always packed and smokey. One lady smoker told me that a non-smoker has no business in a casino and that I should leave after I fanned the smoke that she blew in my face. People are not friendly here and I was nearly attacked in the parking lot. I see more patrols now, however. The staff is courteous and busy and the quick food is okay, along with being discounted with your card. I prefer to go to the casino down the road for less smoke and nicer atmosphere and friendlier and less hostile guests but the slots are a bit looser here--not always, they can be tight, too.
