1300+ slots and video poker games make this a fun place to play. On the lower level there is some full pay machines (bonus deuces wild) that seem to like me as well as I like them.
There's usually never a problem getting a meal comped with a couple hours play. Hostesses really make an effort to help..
Overall great casino if you're looking for a good gamble. They offer the best odds around on craps (25x) and generous rules at the $5 blackjack tables. I hear that there are some decent video poker games as well. If you're looking for slots I'd say it's pretty much the same as anywhere.
Service was good to me and they had no problem comping me a buffet after I had been playing all day on the $5 BJ table. Friendly dealers for the most part. The building itself is not as nice as some, but they do have a tiki bar on the roof where you can play BJ and drink fruity tropical drinks. I didn't stay in a room so I can't comment on that.
One of the few places around that still offer a good gamble if you're looking for it.
I love going to Grand Vic even though it is quite a drive further than other Indiana casinos. The old fashioned boat gives one a feel of the olden days of real riverboat gambling. Plus, they have the best inventory of Video Poker games on the Ohio River. I only wish Grand Vic would add a Pai Gow Poker table. The Friday night seafood buffet is absolutely scrumptious.
They have very liberal monthly coupon money. Better than the other southern Indiana Casinos The hotel is very good.
The River View Buffet is also very good. It is very hard to win anything substantial here. Although some machines will give you machine action so you can play for awhile.
