    Not really a "Trip Report" since it's only 20 minutes from my house...

    Turtle Creek casino in Williamsburg, MI opened their new facility last June (2008 ). They added a hotel to the casino, and expanded their casino floor. The casino has large skylights and a series of lights that change color every 10 seconds or so. The ceilings are very high, so it isn't claustrophobic.

    The casino is broken into two "halves": On the right (from the main entrance) is mostly video poker and penny machines and a table game pit with BlackJack, Roulette and Craps (only open on holidays and weekends). To the left are more slots (some VP) and a more varied pit with Three Card Poker, Four Card Poker, WPT Texas Holdem bonus, Roulette, Craps, Let It Ride, Black Jack and Carribean Stud Poker. These games are manned 24/7, although if no one is playing, the tables will close after midnight. Between the two is the high roller area with slots, video poker and two black jack tables.

    Video Poker ranges from 2 cent to $5 machines (several variations, crappy payouts). slots range from penny to $100. There are progressive machines as well.

    The Poker room has 12 tables and hosts tourneys (both full and sit-and-go) and limit/no-limit games. Limit is usually 1-2, 2-4 and 4-8. No-Limit typically is 2-5, 5-10 and 10-20 if demand is there. They will do stud if they can fill a table and dealer is available. They have a poor-mans tourney with a $10 buy-in every week.

    The casino has several bars, including 1 at each table pit, 1 on the seond floor balcony, 1 outside the poker room and the Level 3 Lounge. Level 3 features live music and has an outside seating area overlooking the parking lot. Drinks are not comped, but they do offer 75 cent drafts (miller and bud) for gamblers.

    There is a buffet, upscale resturaunt and a 24-hour deli on the property as well. They aso have a gift shop.
