We have been patrons of Red Wind Casino for many years. We always bet the lower wagers so that we can control our spending and extend our playing time. Since Red Wind underwent their large renovation, the bonus round triggers and number of wins appear to have been reduced substantially. It is not particularly fun to not have any hits... More

I’d like to thank you for visiting recently and for being loyal guests at Nisqually Red Wind Casino - it’s appreciated and hopefully we’ll earn a return visit down the road, MPATD. However, I can convey from personal experience (working at other casinos that underwent a similar renovation or complete replacement) that some guests there also made the assumption that... More

It used to be a smallish casino that carried an extremely smoke-filled atmosphere. The upgrades are noticed immediately as it carries a better environment and even the smoking area is tolerable for those against holding your breath. The gaming is fine and the food in the deli is better than most casinos.

My cousin (an Olympia resident) introduced us to this casino, which was akin to having an excellent tourist guide and really enhanced our experience. She analyzes the slots more than anyone I've ever known and knows how to get the best payouts. For instance, on one machine she discovered the rate of payout is a minimum of 2.5 even if... More

After watching football all day we decided to stop by and get something to eat. We ate at the buffet and it was surprisingly good. The roast beef was cooked perfectly and the crab legs were excellent. Lots of other food to choose from including a desert bar. Great value for the price we will certainly be coming back
