Scared to visit.casino

I have reservations to stay at the new hotel tomorrow night. However, after reading the reviews, I noticed that almost every review mentions how awful the payback is on the,slots. I'm tempted to cancel our trip out,there. When the slots are set so tight it is really not fun. I'm wondering if that's the reason their hotel had so many rooms available when all of the other casino hotels in the area were completely booked. I'm not sure I want to set myself up to lose. I'll have,to think about this.

adding a hotel

The slots play here used to be pretty good, but since they have started adding a Hotel they have shut down the slots in order to pay for it. Anyone who says the Indians slots are fair doesn't play them. They shut down certain machines so that they will not bonus and they manipulate the size of the bonuses so that you cannot possibly win. If you have to spend $50 to get a bonus and the bonus is $10, well you can do the math.

Slots are getting worse...

I love the casino as a facility and the food, cigar bar, and customer service is great. It is one of the few casinos in the area you can frequent without risking an early death from secondhand smoke. But the payback on slot machines has been dropping. It used to feel like 94-95%, now I would put it in the upper 80%'s. I think the reason is pretty obvious: Clearwater Casino. Sure, the Point is not quite as bad as its nearby competition--that would take some serious effort--but it is hazardous to play here. I'm guessing that every tribal casino around here is trying to figure out how much more profit they can suck out of their mostly blue collar patrons, and seeing how low they can set the payback. The Point may not be the lowest, but they are trying to catch up.
Go for drinks and entertainment, but stay away from the slots.

Beautiful casino and incredible food.

We visited this casino on Thursday this week and were very impressed. Now, I will not tell you I won a bunch of money, truthfully the machines seem a little tight with few bonuses. Really need to improve that, but, the casino itself is worth going to see. They have done some extensive remodeling and it is a very modern style. When we pulled into the parking lot, I honestly looked at the style and shape and wondered what does it look like inside. It looked like a huge domed tent or hut, quite large. All along the outside walls is Indian art which is very impressive. I loved the two wooden statues at the entrance.
We entered the lobby and the players club was right there. Love that! Then, we entered the casino. It is a simple, but elegant design with approximately 400 plus modern machines, a beautiful bar in the middle, and very high ceiling with modern art designs over the bar. The ceilings being so high eliminated any smoke problems and we were told they have a very extensive smoke elimination system. The staff, security and player’s club personnel were great and very friendly. The casino was very clean and the cleaning staff was visible and worked very hard to keep it that way.
But the real treat of this casino is the Little Boston Bistro. Besides a very extensive menu, they have an early bird special that is a real treat. For $14.95 you get a 4 course dinner, choosing from 3 selections in each course. Go to their website to see the whole menu plus the special. The atmosphere, wait staff, décor and presentation of their food is extremely impressive. We were very surprised to see “New York Style Presentation” in a medium sized casino out in the country in WA. The food was outstanding, done to our liking and quite a variety. I recommend this highly. We did not eat at the buffet yet but it looked very good also.
Visit this one, you will enjoy seeing it. It is worth going there just for dinner.

Beautiful new building--SAME old machines.

Well, the new casino is here, and they did a nice job on it. The deli and restaurant are pretty nice, not as bright or as large as the Clearwater down south, but new and clean. They have a cigar room, The facilities are fantastic, but guess what? Those slots were trucked across the parking lot, and they still suck. The machines most likely payback at 92-95%, but they do so like the Emerald Queeen; rare and absurd payouts. In a casino this size, it's like being on a few small networks--one guy hits big and everyone loses money for the next 15 minutes. At least now with the cavernous clean new building, you won't have to hear everyone in the place swearing at their machines.
