Bj card table and staff
I show up occasionally i play the blackjack games and my wife plays video poker machines it's always a great time win lose or draw. The staff is well friendly and they're always there to help. I am glad they are very professional. any chance I get I will sure be there.
Video Poker @ CQ
Been a CQ customer for years. Excellent video poker at $1 machines but only average for $.25. Wish they would bring back their quarter double bonus progressives that reset to $1500!
Buffet is below average as is steakhouse but Sevens club has real good food deals. Best thing is NO SMOKING!!!! Clean breathing compared to Missouri (cough, cough) casinos.
Casino Queen E. St. Louis, IL
On the Mississippi River across from St Louis, it's nice to be shipboard and watch the river roll by. Relatively easy to drive to from St. Louis and the area around the casino is safe with lots of parking and security. Buffet is fair and environment is relaxed. It's good entertainment for the locals.
Never had a whole lot of luck here
I went to the Casino Queen on Saturday Dec. 10, 2012 with some friends that swear by this casino. I have never had a whole
lot of luck here, but everyone says "The Queen is the place to go" Couldn't prove it by me. However, the money you build
up in your slot play, they do not take it away from you. So, one up for the "queen'. the little snack bar is nice, sandwiches are
good. I do not care for their buffet. I do not go here very much. I don't like fighting downtown traffic and Illinois traffic.
Don't like the BJ games
I played table games at Casino Queen (East St Louis, Il) often until I discovered that in Blackjack (BJ) they had a procedure that allowed their casino to possibly cheat the unsuspecting/unobservant BJ player. I also was told that this was a practice of at least 4 and maybe 5 of the 9 casinos in Illinois by a gaming board representative. The gaming board of Illinois, the casino internal control system, and the on-site gaming agent "indicate" that this was a practice that had been going on for 16 years, and gaming board had not noticed or not wanted to notice this practice. After my filing a formal complaint, that the casino advertises paying 3:2 on all blackjacks, but in real play had an exception when you place a .50 bet on top of your bet, after my complaint they did CHANGED the practice. My opinion is, if they cheat a little, then how many other cheats do they practice on players now or will in the future with the Illinois gaming commission turning a blind eye? I want to see if this review stays here. Thank you for reading and remembering this warning. Not wanting to be anonymous my code name is halliberri which will be removed (known widely at the Casino Queen and other casinos).
Within the year that the above incident happened and after being advised (after not playing there for 9 months) to return to the BJ tables and closely observe to see if other infractions happens that assaulted the integrity of the BJ game at CQ Casino. While playing the red deck at a Blackjack table ($5/$10 and) after the shoe was completed, a BLUE card was suddenly noticed by the dealer. She called the floor personnel and of course they believed that it was no big deal. DUH!. If they could prove that one of the players or dealer had put that "ONE CARD" in the deck, compromising the blackjack play, it would have been a HUGE deal and someone would have possibly been arrested. The casino personnel just put the blue card in the blue deck and continued the play. As far as I know, they did not count the cards, stop the game, or care that those players at the table had been affected adversely by this blunder/cheat.
Other than to continue to place reviews such as this on as many casino forums as possible, to get someone to at least know that something is seriously WRONG at Casino Queen BJ tables, I just don't know who to contact. In my opinion the gaming commission and casino act deaf and dumb to these issues.
Good deal, but I think they charge too much for the rooms considering this property is so far off the beaten track. The rooms are certainly newer and clean but one would think it would be easier to get an upgrade, especially when the hotel only has 38% occupancy, at least from a standard room to a deluxe room. Hey, we're not asking for the presidential suite at the Biltmore!
Gambling is good if you like Video Poker and Craps, although the atmosphere is a bit on the dry side. The buffet is acceptable and the One Six Sky Bar is interesting although only open on Friday and Saturday when we were there. Good happy hour drink prices and foo foo martinis to be had.
Very friendly staff and slot floor personnel. Excellent player club benefits. Video poker has very good games, the 3 play/5 play poker machines have good payback, but not enough of them.
Hotel staff was very friendly and rooms adequate. Ask for an arch view. Buffet and most food services only average, but the buffet breakfast was very good.
Safe well patrolled parking, including valet parking, odds superior to Missouri casinos for knowledgeable players.
