Belterra boat as my friends and I call it to compare it to belterra park closer to cincinnati ohio that is not on a boat, is actually a very nice resort. Yes, it is older but compared to some other casinos within 30 minutes Belterra easily wins for it's beautiful hotel rooms and shopping areas along with their great restaurants. The casinos itself is nice. Not the best one in Indiana but by no means the worst. My advice if you play the slot machines on the first floor you walk into you won't come out ahead. Most of the new flashy slots are up on this floor. I have never done well on the first floor. Take the escalators downstairs and you will find a slew of older slots that let you play for a longer period of time. Overall it is a good casino with some character.
09/30/19 - stopped at Belterra on the way to the Horseshoe in So Indiana. What a BEAUTIFUL place out in the middle of nowhere! Casino was on 2 floors & well appointed, but small. Nice atmosphere! No free drinks though.
Belterra is the place to be during these economic times. This is entertainment and you have a fair chance to win and that is all one can ask for. Some people lose perspective and when you least expect it you win. I have hit twice on two different days at two totally different slots. The staff was actually happy for me and the visits to Belterra simply allows one to forget about life's ordinary problems. This is no ordinary place. It simply is the best in indiana.
In comparison to the other southern Indiana casinos, belterra is simply the best. You don't have the attitude from the Argosy, the machines are better than Grand Victoria, and the services are much better than Ceasars.
I go to Belterra twice monthly from Tennessee and find the overall experience better at Belterra than anywhere else in Indiana. The staff are great and try very hard to complete any requests.
The steak house is great, the buffet has greatly improved with the new personnel. The vip lounge is nice. The staff, casino hosts, and dealers are outstanding. The servers and slot attendants are fast. Nice shopping and spa...Belterra has plenty to do and a great facility do do it in...
