Terrible Casino...more like a Donating Center

Been going out there for a few years now and very seldom see anyone winning, Iv' never won much, small wins that get ate back up in a few spins. I sat next to a guy betting 4 dollars a bet and my bonuses at fifty cents were more than his were, he was angry about that and I don't blame him. But, that's what you can expect from Fart Hole.....I mean Fort Hall.

expect the worst, hope for the best

I've been going to Fort Hall several times in the last few years. At first I was into playing slots and I really couldn't win much or anything the whole time I was there. You might get lucky if your Max Betting but that is very risky and short lived success will go sour pretty soon. I've won a lot and put it back... shamefully. Plus a lot of the newer slots are set for 60 cents or above and you have to Max $6 or more to play progressive bonus. I'm advanced/intermediate video poker player and is okay and JoB payout is poor and you might have to settle for video bonus poker games for the chance of much greater jackpots. There are more times that I've played hundred of dry hands and nothing. Keno is probably the safest, and that is not saying a lot considering the bonus rounds for cleo keno begin in the first few rounds, after that it's down hill. I've sat besides people who will bet $10 a push and win big, but not everyone has that kind of cash to blow and you would have to walk away before feeding it back to the casino. Caveman & Power are a little better payouts but you can safely sit for HOURS and it up and down. I've had two technical incidences where my keno machine froze, and was read "initializing system." Also on slots machines that go into bonus rounds for no reason, but still didn't pay anything. Another slot machine I should have won lines but didn't? I'm I to believe the machines are that poorly kept or that I'm under the mercy of the casino on whether I win or not? Not fair gaming if that is the case.

There not a lot of benefit being part of the players club because it doesn't give diddly, $5 dollars bonus bucks and you spend hundreds or even thousands. Lately they cheapen up and seem to cut out hotel stay. No free meal credits or you have to use the credits you've already earned. I'm local so it doesn't matter but it would be a nice treat.

The Buffalo Horn Grill has served up really good food, so far I have no complaints and the service is friendly. Speed depends on the amount of customers vs staff. They need an extra restroom for the grill, and a extra one for the casino floor or you will have to walk you pants across the casino into the bingo hall to find a available restroom when one is being serviced. They need more janitors on the floor to clean and replace ash trays and garbage.
I do smoke and I'm sorry to all the non-smokers who I've offended with my cigarettes but I can agree they need better ventilation without the fans blowing on top of you either.

They do offer free coffee and soda. They offer monthly cash/prize drawings and if your lucky enough to still be playing you might win something in the hot seat drawing or you will have to spend some cash for a minimal points to play the swipe and win kiosk games being offered, or the chance to be entered into a drawing. Once I had over a thousand entries, not once drawn. It sucks that most of the drawings are on business days were people have to work and can't make it out. Sometimes the same people are picked more than once. Very few times they are on the weekend.

I know a lot of people understand what I'm saying in all this and it seems the complaints are consistent. You should play for fun, but walking away losing most of the time is not fun!

To conclude I understand they are wanting to expand the casino, and management has changed, but there are more people who come out are just average locals who want a good gaming experience. Lots of seniors. There are people who bring serious cash, but if that is what it's going to take to win than I guess many don't stand a chance. Bring what you don't mind losing and hope for the best ,but expect the worst.

Not Bad

I tend to play blackjack carefuly and can easily turn bonus bucks into cash. Tend to slowly lose but thats to be expected. Some slot machines suck others are surprosingly easy to hit your first bonus round fast.

Biggest complaint is the luck seams to sometimes flip very suddenly. All casinoas are money sinks but if I go alone and leave when I want I can almost always walk away with some winnings expecialy thanks to bonus bucks.

Free soda and coffee, very clean, open all night. I like it.

Terrible place to go

When I started to visit this casino it was great, you could win, or lose or maybe even break even some times. But now they have changed over to networked machines and can kill them at any time. The worst part is that Idaho gave them permission to set their own payout....which means they payout ZERO as they try to rip people off to build their business. I have went out there more than 20 times sense and won 5 dollars once and 6 dollars once..

What a Joke

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.

YOU CAN WIN!

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.

odds are you'll walk away empty handed

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.

Sadly going downhill..

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..
