Well, not sure
Not really sure how to rate this casino. It is neat and clean, can't remember seeing cleaning personnel but can't complain. Slots were so tight I literally played on one machine for 10 minutes and did not win a penny let alone a bonus. Great variety though. At the buffet and nothing to write home about. Prime Rib and Shrimp was the best thing on the menu. Went to get a piece of cake and it was hard enough to build a wall with. Just not impressed. If in the area we will go back but certainly will not go out of our way to visit there.
We always have a love/hate feeling after visiting here. We stay at the RV park (5x) and love it. We used to partake in the 2.00 breakfast but they stopped that. We find the slots very tight and seldom win. The staff are hit and miss. Some good, some very indifferent.Very hard to get anything other than average service in 2 salmon restaurant. Especially if they're busy.
Table games are ok, I play blackjack and can sometimes break even, finding open seats is risky tho. Worst experience ever was having a dealer stop a game to call pit boss over to show off her 5 card 21! This was after pulling 4 or 5 21's in about 10 minutes.
Like the New Name Better...
I never knew this place changed names (used to be Northern Lights Casino or something like that) until New Year's Day when I stopped by with my wife on our way to Deception Pass (another review in itself - google it for information and pictures!). We head there about two or three times a year and always stop in here...
Anyways, the staff here are some of the best; always helpful, always smiling, and very friendly. Whether a cashier, slot attendant, waitress or security... all quite pleasant.
They have an excellent variety of slot machines here and combined with their rewards program, makes this place a sure winner.
The hotel got a rating of 1 as there is none; they do, however, have what appears to be a "full-service" campground. That would be nice in the summer for a night or two as there are a lot of activities to do in the area!
Crowded on New Year's Eve
Went to New Years Eve celebration. They had great prizes. Only drawback was if felt like all we did all night was stand in line. The casino was extremely busy. To get a players card the line was over an hour long with it you were given a 5 free play coupon which had to be redeemed at the cashiers cage as they only had two open. We only ever found one cashier cage, it was another half hour line up to turn slip into slot ticket.
If you needed to exchange your money or cash in a win slip you had to go to the cashier they had none of the automated bill or slot ticket machines so it was very time consuming and inconvenient.
The waitress coming around took my order and never returned. I found the coffee bar and it was very weak tasting. My eyes burned from all the smoke. We had printed off a new player promo coupon for a free burger basket and we redeemed it the next day and it was very good. They advertise as having the loosest slots I certainly did not find that but was pleased to find they let you redeem a special promo max twice a month based on how much you lose during your visit. If you lose over 100 dollars you present 20 to cashier and get 45 for your next visit which must be used between one day to 14 days after. It cannot be used on the day you lose your money. My husband says he never will go back I will give it a second chance as it was new years eve.
Surprise! We had a blast!
We came up north for a short weekend get away. Pleasantly surprised. Signed up for their card and got a free night in the rv park. Two nights for $22. full hook ups. I think she said it was off season rates now...awesome!
Didn't play table games...so that is why I gave it 3 stars.
Slots were typical up and down..win some lose some...
Food was great value for breakfast Mon-Sat 8-10am..$2.99 2 eggs, hash browns,toast and meat plus coffee! We stayed away from $29.99 seafood buffet Fri night..too expensive for our budget..But went to Sat night Prime Rib for $18. Was good for small buffet..
We didn't expect much since they are under construction and that usually means trouble...but we had a fun time. Will return this spring..maybe sooner if we can escape :-)
The best casino to play at, slots pay more here compared to the others we have played at and they have a none smoking area which helps since we are not smokers. The food is great and is nicely done in decor, the staff is friendly and the RV park has a beautiful view of the mountains and bay, we keep coming back for more fun, food and winnings!
Great and friendly place
Superb customer service. (except a few!).
Slots paid very well (i walked away a winner!)
Canadian guy rating
I was really surprised to see such a GREAT customer service at this casino!
99% of the staff was very relaxed and friendly, especially the cashier ladies.
Food was great and their service was prompt and polite.
Slot payouts the same as the ones in Canada.
I highly recommend this place to everyone.
Have fun but know your limits :-)
Good food, but watered down pop!
If I'm traveling between Anacortes and Mount Vernon, I stop here for a while. They don't have a lot of slots and many of them are older and the screens are fuzzy, plus the screens are often out of calibration.
In general I get the feeling they aren't making a lot of money and can't keep up with maintenance, which might be considered a good thing in a Casino but I don 't win any more or less than I do anywhere else! However, the food is generally quite good, they have a delicious and cheap buffet and the restaurant atmosphere is very nice. I had chicken strips at the slot I was playing tonight (hot machine, didn't want to leave it!) and those chicken strips were the best I've ever had! I haven't noticed those "new" slot machines that someone else mentioned.
Keno and slots
A plus for this casino is the ladies running the Keno room - they are a very nice, friendly and very helpful to the customers whether new at playing Keno or the old timers.
Another plus is that the casino seems to get in new slot machines on a regular basis almost monthly.
