.......went with friends who live nearby....spent about 1/2 hr at the slots....sure have to put a LOT of money in to play the max/not loose either....the smell of smoke slams you when you first enter but then you hardly smell it(unless you're really sensitive). Several machines 'out of order' but enough machines open/no lines. Construction of an addition going on.... More

Redwind "updating" slots. Two thirds of machines not working. If your lucky enough to find one to sit at there are 3 people standing behind waiting for you to get up. Payouts extremely low. Employes passing out free cake to pacify everyone. I am a regular customer or was. I will drive to Little Creek or Lucky Eagle from now... More

Went to the Red Wind casino because we had a gift certificate for the buffet. Decided to make it a destination to do a little gambling and have a good dinner. Let's start with the casino. We went in and found it to be one of the smaller casinos in the region. They had plenty of slots and table games... More

When you first walk in you are a smoker , like it or not. Play the slots and plan on making them richer. If you want to stay happy ! don't come here.

My husband and I are regulars at the Coho, almost every Saturday evening. We really like the set up of the bar, the food and the staff in the Coho. I am in and out gambling. It's close to home for us so we like that too. HOWEVER, I do go to Lucky Eagle and Little Creek for the simply... More

Happy to go to a casino. It's been a long time since I've been to Vegas so I was itching to get to a casino to have some fun and have a nice meal. The wall of smoke hits you immediately as you enter, and pretty much lingers with you the whole time you are there. Hey, I know I'm... More

We have played at Red Wind for several years. We are contemplating on throwing in the towel! We used to be able t bring $20 with us and often win or break even, or at least be able to stay awhile. Since the remodeling started we could bring $1000 with us and it will be gone in no time. I... More

The Red Wind has one of the best buffets in the area with choices from fresh fruit to omelets to seafood, you name it. Reasonable or free if you spend enough time in the casino to be "comped". This is a well kept casino with very friendly employees that are always on top of things.
