What's Where

The layout of the complex is a little sprawling but the main entrance leads off to the parts of the facility. Directly inside the main entrance under the large portico is the hotel check in desk and the lobby area. The area is accentuated with a fountain and pool area that has decoy ducks floating aimlessly in the pool as well as deer and a hunter on the banks watching them. A very pleasant spot to spend a few quiet moments anticipating the excitement to come.

A hallway behind the fountain leads to one of the two casinos. The hallway contains a full service restaurant - Otis and Henry's - as well as a snack bar - O&H Express - associated with the restaurant. This casino is populated entirely by slot machines. To the west from the atrium is Calypso's Buffet where it is reasonably easy on Mondays to find a complimentary admission. Past the buffet is the second casino which has some 20 table games as well as slot machines and video poker. One of the two hotels is also located in this wing. To the east from the atrium is the second hotel.

The Hotels

The Palm Terrace Hotel and the Coral Reef Hotel have a combined 450 rooms. The Coral Reef Hotel features rooms with one king or two double beds, while the Palm Terrace Hotel has a king or a queen or two double beds. They are all equipped with flat screen televisions and coffee makers. The hotels also feature an outdoor swimming pool and an indoor exercise facility. Laundry facilities are also available for guests that have been on the road. Several combinations of accommodations are available from regular rooms through deluxe facilities and range in price from $69 during the week to $159 on the weekends. In looking at the reservation website, it would appear that space is available most of the time.

The Food

Three restaurants are available.

The Calypso Buffet features Mississippi Delta style cooking that tries to use locally grown and produced food. They have a Catfish Friday and a Seafood Saturday buffet every week. Holidays such as Easter call for special menus. Prices range from $10.99 for lunch to a normal $15.99 for dinner. Specialty menus such as Catfish Fridays are more expensive.

Otis & Henry's Bar & Grill opens at 5:00 PM each day for dinner and is open on Saturday and Sunday from 7:30 AM to 11:00 AM for breakfast. The dinner menu contains appetizers, soups, and salads, sandwiches, and an array of entrees. The entrees are moderately priced (a fried chicken platter is $14.00).

The O&H Express is open from 7:00 AM till 2:00 AM every day. They feature breakfast sandwiches and muffins as well as grab-and-go sandwiches, burgers, nachos, and chips. Patrons can also order sandwiches from the Otis & Henry's Bar and Grill menu.

Entertainment

Periodically the casino sponsors name entertainment in the Flamingo Ballroom. The ballroom is a large facility that can accommodate up to 1,000 people. In addition to entertainment is is used for conventions, meetings, and as a venue for weddings.

The Gambling

Two casinos are present at the facility. Together they house some 1300 slot and video poker machines. There are 20 plus table game. The casino directly down the hallway behind the atrium has slot machines. There is a cashier's cage that can handle transactions from the players club (called FanPlay).

The casino to the west of the atrium contains not only slot and video poker machines but many table games. There is a cashier's cage and a window for joining and obtaining the players club (FanPlay) benefits. They feature Blackjack (both double deck and shoe dealt), Craps, Roulette, Mississippi Stud, and a blackjack off shoot called 21+3.

Most days of the week have special contests or giveaways in progress that can enhance the guest's experience.
