    My Trip Report

    I happened to drive by the place on I-74 driving between Indianapolis & Cincinnati. I had to make the reverse drive the following day & would be passing by Shelbyville a bit after noon. So I figured I'd stop by for lunch at the buffet and take a look through the casino.

    They had two promotions going on -- something like 15% off the buffet price because of the current construction going on and another 10% if you have a slot club card. So I stopped and got a card first and it was under 10 bucks for the lunch buffet. Not much more than if I had gone to McDonald's down the street. It was actually better than a number of lunch buffets I've had in Vegas for about the same price.

    Signing up for the slot club got me $5 in free play. I really wasn't all that impressed with the selection of slots on the floor and saw virtually no Video Poker there. I don't even recall what machine I played my $5 on but the Play button was bad and you often had to hit it a number of times to get the reels to spin. I think I got my Freeplay up to about $9 and cashed out when it was just under $5 cash so I'd have some ones for tips.

    Virtually no table games open in the early afternoon. I think they had a solitary Blackjack table open ($5 maybe?) and that was it.

    If I'm on the East side of Indianapolis next trip, I'll probably stop in again. But I wouldn't go out of my way to do so. It's a nice place but they need some help on what slots they put in there and definitely need to add more Video Poker if they even have ANY now.

    It's possible you missed the VP section. I almost missed it in April as it's pretty hidden (just outside high limit room); I talk about the place in my NCAA Championship TR. Also not too big (maybe 50 units in the entire casino?), a lot of casinos don't have extensive VP unfortunately. 9/5 Jacks (98.45%) for quarters and some full pay at multiline dollars. Also 9/6 Jacks (99.54%) at $5. Pretty damn good for a racino with little or no competition.
