The casino was large and had many new different slots. It also offered many different restaurants, from fast food to a high end steak house. It also had a buffet which I wasn't too crazy about.

My husband thinks their senior breakfast is the best deal in town. If you want to stay somewhere else, there is a Holiday Inn Express about 2 miles away from Thunder Balley in Lincoln.
