We live away from KC and when we return we enjoying gambling. We frequent all the Casinos in KC but this is the biggest and closest to Las Vegas.

The place is in need of a remodel. And need of housekeeping. Room was not serviced 2nd night. Dust in bedroom and bathroom an inch thick. All down hallways and baseboards dust. Maybe they need vacuums donated. Can't say I will ever be backMore

One of our favorite casinos in KC. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. Love the variety of new and old machines. Love to eat at the Sports Bar, Deli, and breakfast at the café.

Smoking is allowed in all Missouri Casinos, so if you want to legally gamble, at least pick a place that has high ceilings (smoke rises). The upgrade to Sprite Zero at the free soda Kiosk was a nice touch too! ATM fee=$5.99, which is borderline...More

After eating at the buffet, we took our kid to Kidsquest, which she loved. We went and saw a concert. I’ve gambled here many times and it was fun. It’s a nice casino and probably my favorite in the Kansas City area.

Yes they do. My grand daughter loved it. If you use it after the first time you have to bring shot records.

I believe it is available in all but a small non smoking area but the ventilation system seemed to handle the smoke well.
