Horrible slot floor manager. Some machines designed to rip off senior citizens by making it hard to determine what you are betting. IE: Lower left hand corner of slot that states "BET" is not what you are wagering. In a cents box in the lower right hand corner is another number that is to be multiplied by the "BET" box. Slots are very stingy - much better payout at Lake Charles, Kinder or Cypress Bayou.

Don’t waste your time, or yet don’t waste your money at this place. Their machines are set so tight that you’ll lose your money before you blink twice! We live locally and have been going there for years, but ever since Boyd Gamming took over their payback on their machines is horrible. On top of that they don,t comp anything any more, plus you only get pennies on free play compared to Coushatta, or Paragon. I quit using my players card because it was nothing but dead weight in my wallet! I think they will eventually go belly up if they continue to take all the slot money and give it to the horse racing purses. At least that’s my hope anyway for ripping all their customers off all these years! I never expect to win a fortune in these places, and they are quick to point out that the gaming is for entertainment only, but to never win anything anymore, something is wrong! And it doesn’t seem to bother Evangeline Downs. But if people are informed and stop going there something will change! And they have lost me as a customer, because I’ll never go back unless they change!

Rude breakfast people jump in front of you when refilling things, the front desk manager leaves her desk and locks the front door...no sign to tell guests how to get back in. The pool and hot tub were dirty and green! Food in buffet is overpriced and horrible. No ventilation in rooms and walls are paper thin...you hear everything inside and out!

We have been going there for the past couple of months and spending big dollars. The amount you win back is at the very minimal, v-e-r-y minimal. I wont be back until this casino starts to get better reviews and better paybacks. Dont waste your money, go west!
