It's a very nice and large casino property. right on the river, it has some great views of Omaha. Lots of machines both old and new. And the ceiling is pretty high so it didn't seem as smoky as other local casinos.

You can also get rooms for $99 on Mondays. It's like everywhere else, cheaper early in the week.
