Facility was OK. Mostly slots. Folks who frequent Las Vegas or Louisiana probably won't be all that impressed, but not too bad for sitting in the corn fields of Iowa. Folks were friendly and helpful.

Very nice. The only reason I did not give it a 5 is because of the smoking in the casino...although they do have a small "smoke free" area

I liked going there for convenience and would go back if I thought there was a remote chance of leaving with more money than I came with. Should just mail them 300$ and stay home , at least save some gas.

Took $100 out of the ATM machine. The airflow in the casino took it out of my hands. Security guards did nothing to get it back from the person who stole it.

The Isle Casino is a smokers hang out because there are so many smokers that it reeks cigarette smoke in the casino. I feel sorry for the Isle Capri employees who have to inhale the second hand smoke! Yes, the Isle has a small non-smoking...More

Hi how is it that I can bet max $2.50 can only win a little over 500 dollars on 250 free spins retrigger twice with eight free Spin one little wimpy $30 jackpot that really stinks I've seen people win more on $0.45 with 30 free spins yes this is very Wicked and this is so racist and unfair is an understatement and it happens over and over and over it's straight up discrimination and of course I have complained about it and even written a letter and gave it to the hostess and she gave it to the person that needed to see it and nothing was said or done because they know it's true and it is wrong on every level and I'm sick of it totally depressed by this abuse and ready to face this demon and do whatever it takes to straighten this problem out because my money is just as important as anybody else's money in there... why are you all having such a hard time receiving my complaint
