"Lakes Region Casino, Poker and Table Games."
A long road takes a visitor to the casino. On a busy weekend night, 20 or 30 cars fill the parking lot. Inside, men and women play card and table games, and a few leave the tables with more cash than they came with.
Winners can take home a big chunk of change.
"In the poker tournaments, sometimes a winner will take home a few grand," said Gloddy.
The casino staff, some of whom came from other casinos in the region, greet visitors warmly, but the players don't pay much attention to newcomers. They're busy watching balls roll on the roulette wheel or cards floating from the dealer's deck.
"It is a casino, but it's not really; the hardcore gambler isn't going to be interested here," Amos said. "I just won back what I paid to get in."
"It's not high stakes, nobody wins more than $2,000 or so if they win," he said. "It's all done on a smaller scale, but we play a lot of the same games that you'd see in a big casino. And the odds are comparable to those at a big casino."
Most players aren't aware that some of their money goes to charities, Gloddy said.
