They had a little party at the local gambling hall today.... seems 20 years have passed since Casino Windsor opened the doors.

Not trolling, just admitting I never heard of the place till now.
Shed not for her the bitter tear Nor give the heart to vain regret Tis but the casket that lies here, The gem that filled it Sparkles yet

I still preferred the old art gallery and river boat before the permanent building and pre Caesars.




You know they were required to have a Captain for that boat?

Buzz .... this is a world class casino ( okay Canadian world class)

Does Canada still have the lower drinking age? Probably moot with passports needed these days, but Michigan type states with enhanced IDs might have their kids able to taste freedom if still low.

We stayed at Casino Windsor for a couple of nights during the Christmas break. It is a nice, huge, non-smoking (go figure, eh ?) casino. The rooms are very nice there and from time to time we get an offer of a comp'd room.

I prefer the Canadian side vs Detroit.

They had $ 5 black-jack - it was the hybrid kind where there is a dealer but you make your bets on a little I-pad type touch screen device built into the table. The neat thing is that the shoe has some kind of card recognition device, so when the card slides out, it automatically displays your card count on the screen.

We also drove down River Road to go on the Distillery tour but it was closed that day.
Like the castle in its corner In a medieval game; I foresee terrible trouble And I stay here just the same

I stopped in here for the great race to rewards thing a few years ago. I sat down at a machine and ordered a drink. I knew alcohol was not free so I ordered a non alcoholic strawberry daiquiri. They are free at every other CET casino that I have been to. The waitress came over and handed it to me, then asked for $5. I couldn't believe it was $5, I wonder how much it would have been with alcohol in it.
