I visited the non-smoking area which was very large, many machines, and entirely smoke free! Parking is very easy either by yourself or the valet.

We used to enjoy visiting Red Wind until the remodel started. Staff used to be friendly, outgoing and made an effort to get to know you. Now, slots are tight, staff is less friendly and food in the new deli has actually gone down in quality. Food service: you only had one cash register open in the deli at 6:00... More

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

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.
