    I generally go to Biloxi about 3 times per year. My wife's family always wants to stay at the Beau Rivage because it is fancy, but I always end up gambling at the Palace. It is a very standard casino, but great if you aren't a high roller. Ill just list some pros and cons to the place in case anyone is interested.

    Pros
    1. The only Non-Smoking casino in Biloxi. You may not know how important that is until you have experienced it.
    2. $5 craps all day, every day. Even $3 craps during the week. I would never bet $3 but if you are new to craps its a good way to learn.
    3. 10x odds on any number, so you can go crazy betting on a 6 or 8.
    4. Its very easy to get comps. Play for a few hours and you will probably end up with a free buffet.
    5. The buffet is one of, if not the best in Biloxi.
    6. The rooms aren't anything special, but nice enough. They are very cheap, even on Christmas.
    7. Drink staff is usually very attentive. They want to get you hammered if at all possible, so they will be there (Unlike the Beau where I order a beer and it shows up long after my bankroll has run out).
    Cons
    1. Looks hideous on the outside. I'm not sure who came up with the golden windows but its rough.
    2. No poker room as far as I can tell.
    3. Cheap tables tend to draw a lot of people who don't know what they are doing.
    4. Only a few of each game. They have 2 Craps tables, 2 or 3 roulette tables, maybe 7 Blackjack tables, and tons of 3 card poker.
    5. Missing a lot of common games. I don't think they even have baccarat.
    So all in all I would highly recommend it. $5 craps with 10x odds on every number is pretty unbeatable. I am by no means a high roller (usually bring $500 for the weekend), but I haven't paid for a meal there in years. I love not having to worry about someone sitting next to me and lighting up a cigar. If you do smoke obviously that's a reason not to go there, but for anyone else its amazing. On a busy night it can be very hard to find an open spot at a Craps table (since there are only 2), but you can generally find a spot to squeeze in. Its not a very sexy casino, but compared to Boomtown (the other $5 casino in Biloxi) it really does look like a palace.

    Is DeMango said, you can see a sign for it across from the nugget. I'm not sure how old it is but we only started going there maybe 4 years ago? Actually going there on Sunday.

    Look for the big IP on the side. Stands for Imperial Palace. Good Buffet especially early.

    imperial palace is different. The palace is a few miles away from there. Imperial palace is full of smoke and is rarely $5, plus they don't give you 10x odds

    I like The Palace, don't play there that much any more, table a tad too bouncy.

    A better way to say it, east side, back bay. Near the old bay bridge crossing. Bsayegh, is right, the ugliest casino ever. :).
