    Thanks for the review. We go to Cherokee 1-2 times a year and Valley River would be a bit closer for us, may have to give it a try. Do you happen to remember if they have Let It Ride? Or are the table games specifically what you listed?

    Thanks for the review. We have been waiting to hear about the new casino. Will give it a try for a day trip first time we go there.

    I don't recall seeing Let It Ride, which wouldn't make sense considering they have multiple LIR tables in Cherokee. It's entirely possible that I missed them.

    Went to the CVR yesterday. The signing on the highway is sorely lacking, and we ended up driving past the casino. Multiple employees said this was a major concern, and they were working on a fix. With that said, the casino, albeit a bit small, was vey nice and had the latest slot machines. The employees were nice and attentive and we enjoyed our visit. My wife and I both left even, and my wife's brother and mother both dropped a few bucks. We will definitely return next year.

    LIR is sort of a dying game nationwide. In a smaller casino, I wouldn't necessarily expect it to be there. But if it's popular at Cherokee, then yeah, Murphy should offer it.

    I went back last night, and they do not have Let It RIde yet, but I asked a pit boss if it was coming, and she said eventually. I also heard that it's not a matter of if they will get a poker room, only a matter of when. And the hostess at the Diamond Lounge said they recently hired a chef, so expect more substantial offerings in the lounge.

    I also agree about the signage. If you're not from the area, it can be easy to miss.

    Thank you for the review. We go to Cherokee 5-6 times a year and are looking forward to CVR. Thank you for your tips and insight.

    It does seem to be a dying game! Time to try something different!

    Diamond Lounge update: They're serving hot food now, but mostly fried finger foods (popcorn chicken, fried veggie, spring rolls, etc). Saturday nights are now Chef's Night where the Chef prepares a real dish and even serves you. Last week was Beef Wellington, tonight is New York Strip.
