    Nice casino. They have everything you would want - several black jack tables and a nice poker room. Several restaurants. No free drinks at tables :(

    Service in the Clubhouse is the worst! Order a drink& you get it 45mn later. If you want anoother, best to go down to the Finish Line bar. They know how to pour, are nice, & fast!

    Play the pass line. Nobody likes someone who plays "Don't Pass." It's line rooting against everyone else at the table.

    The horse races are fun to watch even if you don't bet. You can be inside or outside and they also have a good, high-scale buffet. There are $1 bets if you want to join in the fun!

    If you are playing the slots, look for the Jade Elephant. By far the most entertaining game!
