We saw this casino in the ACG book while driving from Yellowstone down to Vegas and decided to stop. What a joke. The casino is extremely small and is attached to a truck stop. Three aisles wide and maybe 10 yards long. No cash out machines, you have to go to the little window in the back. No table games. And a horrible vibe. Would never stop again.

I've been going to Fort Hall a couple times a month in the last 5 months, and honestly, I have not lost yet. Stick to the biggest machines you can find, that do not allow bonus bucks. I usually never go in that casino with more than $100 and never have left with less than $100. Normally I stick to the monopoly slots, particularly the gaming board linked to 4 machines. Dont get crazy and just enjoy urself, and touch the screen once in awhile, because all of the slots are touch sensitive and if u have a lucky touch it could work in your favor. The Price is Right slot is also pretty good, its the ones with the bonus games you want to stick to. The bonus games pop up and usually pay pretty good. Now this isn't one of those "omg walk in and win $1000 type of casinos, so dont bet heavily, thats why most people usually lose. Bet a little and win a little. I usually bet $5 at a time, and soon as i hit something decent, like for example, a $20 winner, I will collect and hold the ticket til i'm ready to leave. I never put the cash vouchers into the slots, i always put cash in and when i'm ready to leave I cash out. Last 3 times I have gone in, I left with $100+ profit. Before that it was $50-80 profit. Like I said, bet a little and win a little, have fun, dont go crazy and bet $100 in 5 mins, if you do this you will usually lose every time. Blackjack is pretty good if you just be patient and not get cocky. Take ur time and enjoy the experience. The turf side corner is pretty good if you like horse races and KNOW HOW TO READ A PROGRAM! I have been going to horse races since I was a little kid and have learned how to read programs and predict horses very well, so it usually works out for the better for me, but horse races aren't for everyone. The one thing that someone always wins at is Bingo, and it is pretty easy to play, first timers should get a computer so they dont get confused, computers will do it all for u, u just h ave to watch it and hope u get lucky. I have played bingo with my girlfriend and won at that as well, maybe I'm just one of the lucky few, but I have found something that works for me and I stick with it. Now I will admit that playing the same slots over and over and over everytime you go gets very boring after awhile, so that being said, this casino can be very boring and stupid cause you dont have much variety on the big interactive slots. If you want a real casino, spend the money on gas to drive to jackpot nevada, and have some fun there, playing real casino games. Fort Hall food and drinks, its free so thats the good part about the food and drinks, however, they dont always have food. Drinks are soda fountains and usually not the greatest soda but then again, its free. No alcohol on the site, also a negative.

Tightest slots in Idaho,without a doubt. Have been to Fort Hall dozens of times and have never walked away a winner of a single dime. They are building a new resort which is why I figure there are never any payouts. Sad thing is, no one will want to stay there when they realize they have no chance of winning. Everyone I know agrees, Fort Hall has nothing to offer. So keep your money folks, you just give it away at Fort Hall casino.

Fort Hall NEVER pays out

If you enjoy going to a casino where you have NO chance at all of walking away a winner,and believe me,Ive gone dozens of times in the past year,then head on down to Fort Hall!

Was this review helpful to you? 
I've been going to Fort Hall for the last couple of years a few times a year with my good friend.. The past 3-4 months the casino has seen fit to not only do away with many of the older, more traditional slots, but has made sure the new ones they have put in place of those machines have been 'tightened' up to the point of seldom paying off for anyone.. I never minded playing the older slots because I could play most of the day on $60-$70 (including having a nice lunch).. I never really won much, I think the most I ever went home with was $10 up.. Mostly I lost, but I, at least, felt I was getting my money's worth by winning small jackpots to keep me going!

Now, the new machines, when you win 3 of a kind, return less then half of your input.. Many pay out less then 9 cents!! Now I realize all casinos are in the business of getting your money, but come on, folks, if you don't allow your machines to give you a decent jackpot once in awhile, why the heck should anyone play at all?

I know I'm certainly not going down as often and, I guess, I'm hardly alone as I've noticed a distinct fall-off especially on week-days when I usually would go.

I guess it all says it's sad that greed runs so rampant everywhere, even in a tiny little casino, that the owners would just as soon cut off their noses to spite their face to get even more money.. They don't yet know they've only hurt themselves with their actions, but I do know this, not one of my circle of friends is much interested in going down there anymore.

Like me, the fun was in the time spent with the money you went to play with, something that no longer lasts even a couple of hours on their 'new' machines..

Hence, my rating has now dropped to a big, fat 1 for Fort Hall.. Though I must state this rating guide is very poorly designed.. Many casinos do not have table games, player's clubs, hotels/amenities and the like, so forcing one to add a 1 for those non-existent services is ludicrous..
