The new non-smoking area is excellent. This casino has the added attraction of excellent pit supervisors like David, Toni, Steven, Diane, and of course Stevie, the Mgr. This dynamic crew could prepare a manual or conduct an excellent seminar on the finer points of casino games, customer service, human behavior, and the psychology of dealing with casino patrons. Also noteworthy... More

This is one of the nicest casino's in WA state. It is clean and smells great, I am a non smoker so I am so glad that they decided to upgrade and separate the smokers.

We been meaning to stop in for dinner at the Red Wind Casino grill as we'd been told it was good... Honestly - even given an allowance for considerable disruption due to their construction - we needed air filters to cut through a path through the maze of slot machines and cigarette smoke to even get to the grill.

The deli offers good food for a decent price no matter what meal you are there for. Depending on the day of the week you go, the buffet can be hit/miss. Do not spend a lot of time gaming but have never had much luck here. Smoke-free area is extremely small, but they are in process of expanding. Smoking area... More

Having spent a considerable amount if time at the Red Wind, I am cracking up over all the crappy (but true) reviews about this joint. Guest Relations manager time and time again dismisses the complaints...whoever you are, it's challenging to continue polishing this turd time and time again. Needless to say, this place in its endeavor to expand, has compromised... More

Games were fun, not a lot of winnings, but the people that frequent this place are super sketchy. I do not plan on going back. Drinks are free, that was nice.

Went with two others to eat at the restaurant, which you need to be on the "list" before 6:00 p.m. The prime rib special they offer is not only a deal at $13.00, but also very satisfying. Salad, bread, choice of potato, and vegetables are served, along with a few tastes of sorbet between salad and main entree. Quiet atmosphere... More
