Here's a quote from my review of the Silverstar Casino in Philadelphia, Mississippi as posted on my Rockin' High Roller website:

Now we're talking. Here's a casino that's living in the real world and can identify with the needs of the heavy hittin' high roller stressed out from a rough day of shoving purple chips across the felt. The Silverstar Casino in Philadelphia, Mississippi is located on the Choctaw reservation, but we're not talkin' one of your dry, boring, alcohol-free slot hells. Silverstar is the real thing. This isn't just another two bedroom, two bathroom suite, no sir-ree. This is a two HOT TUB suite. Whoa! The Choctaws just seem to know what's important in life!
Here's photographic evidence of the two hot tubs. The "master bath" hot tub had more marble around it. I guess they figure the kids or the guests don't need as much marble in their hot tub.

I didn't keep very good notes of the amenities. There were 6 or 7 telephones, including the standard phones by the toilets. There were 3 large TVs. Both bedrooms were beautiful, but the master bedroom had a much bigger desk and work area. The formal entry leading down a short hallway to the huge living room was impressive in person but I'm not satisfied that I captured it very well in the photographs. I've tried to show it from a couple of angles.

The kitchen was more of a kitchenette, but it had what you needed -- fridge, a table with seating for four.

The hosts are world class, fast, efficient, and quick with the comps. However, they are not wine sophisticates. Check out that bottle in the gift basket:

That is the telltale pink of the gut-wrenching Sutter Home Zinfadel. I don't know if Thunderbird is that bad, but it's that cheap. Yikes. They had some great steaks in their Philip M.'s steakhouse though.
