We Love Thunder Valley Casino-Let's Go!
Casino gambling is a reasonable entertainment for seniors if you have a budget and strictly adheres to it. After my wife and I retired in Northern California, our entertainment budget was reduced, thus we could barely afford attending Broadway shows, movies or expensive restaurants. Lucky for us, Thunder Valley(TV) Casino is only about 20 minutes drive. The Casino offers discount for seniors in several of the restaurants as well as enjoyed the latest high-tech slot machines that Macrine and I enjoy so much. There is another Casino, Red Hawk,(RH),that is about 8 miles farther. However, Macrine and I feel that the slots machines in TV are programmed so that the odds of the players winning is more favorable than the slots in RH( or in Casino Filipino in Paranaque, Philippines).
Casino gambling may be addictive. But if you have a reasonable budget, it is one of the most affordable entertainment for senior citizens, like us.
We do not have to drive to Lake Tahoe or Reno, or fly to Las Vegas, Nevada to enjoy a world class casino and its amenities that fits our entertainment budget.
New Construction was completed last year that included the following:
42,500 square feet of expanded gaming space designed to accommodate additional slot machines, table games and a poker room (in addition to the current 102,000 square feet of gaming space;
A 17-story, 297-room hotel;
A 35,000-square-foot pool area , with pool bar, restrooms and cabanas;
A 10,100-square-foot spa;
A new center bar, service bars and gift shop;
A 10,000-square-foot entertainment hall;
A complete remodel of the existing casino and restaurants;
A seven story parking garage with approximately 3750 spaces.
Come on, enjoy life, let us go to the Casino! Be sure you have a budget and know how to stop when your money runs out. Do not expect to win a lot of money in the casinos. If you do, you will be disappointed.
