Back to Diamond Jo casino. They had some new machines this trip and all of the employees we spoke to were very friendly. Service in the Kitchen Buffet today was excellent as well!

Wow that is crappie my husband and I have been there twice and have never been carded. It must be a if the security feels like it or not situation, but trust me you did not miss anything that casino is terrible we went a second time and had as bad of an experience as the first time. We will stick with our casinos in Minnesota!
