Payouts aren't great. Rewards are even worse. Fun place, yet not conveniently located. If you like to gamble, it's fine, but all things considered for casinos, I'm not impressed. And, table roulette is still not legal in Florida which I think is ridiculous.

Usually when we go to casinos of that size we see a few decent wins while we are there. A couple machines locked down... a few people excited. Not here and we visited on a Friday afternoon. They also need more non-smoking areas (I didn't find any non-smoking slots but maybe I over looked them). The slots were all pretty... More

First of all, this is a much more smaller place than I had expected. Secondly, I usually play the $1 slots but the ones they have were the older design which is much more harder to win. So I lose a few dollars. The good news was since it was my birthday, I got a 50% discount for any gift... More

We were visiting from New York and liked this casino. Sure wish they had live craps. There was one with big dice shaking in the middle which was pretty cool. I won about $110 on slots. They have 2 cent slots and such with the minimum bet being 50 cents or something. With the trip for a night out. There... More

My husband and I go there on a week night or the week end to play the slots. While we are not high rollers, we enjoy the experience and enjoy making a night of it by eating at Fresh Harvest. Sometimes we stroll in to eat at Fresh Harvest and then leave to go to a movie for date night.... More

The Fresh Harvest buffet not what I expect in large casino experience. The carving station only had Baron of Beef on Thanksgiving weekend, No Turkey, No Ham & No Prime Rib. There is no flow to the offerings. The desserts are centrally located between the "American Food," "Italian Food" & Mongolian/ Buy a steak for an additional fee station. They... More

I'll be crossing this chain of casinos off my list of casinos after this visit. It is the only casino we've ever visited (and we've visited many)that charges for parking!!! We had to pay $10. Inside it was poorly ventilated and smoke-Filled throughout. The nonsmoking section didn't have the best slots. We actually didn't find great machines even in the... More
