Very poor ventilation. Went for a concert and unfortunately we had to walk through the smoking section to get to the back of the casino and it was awful! The smoke was so thick it was burning our eyes. Experience in Tatoosh Grill was absolutely terrible. We waited over 1 hr when we were told 30 min and were told... More

This casino have smoking and non smoking area. But the non smoking area have less slot machine. Then you expend the money and did't a win

Horrible ventilation, no customer service, dirty, food that well is over-priced and honestly not worth the trouble. Yeah, they have two buffets, but other Tribal Casino's blow the EQC away. The only decent thing is the shows, but unless your tribal, you cannot get the front rows and you have to purchase seats 10 rows back. It's in a tent,... More

Exactly what you expect. Lots of slots, table games and a few places to eat. Nothing stands out. To me all casinos outside of Vegas are the same for the most part and the EQC is no exception.

Unfortunately, money has come to extinct any self worth this casino might have had at one time. First off, nothing in parking lot is finished. There is no type of landscaping and rocks and debris everywhere. Secondly, walking down the corridor, it is desperately needing power washing. It is extremely dingy and uninviting at every entrance. Inside is tolerable. The... More

It was literally standing room only. The concert was great as always. The casino area was fine, although I didn't visit that area at all.

we went for the boxing match, which in and of itself was fine, but for VIP tickets, we got almost no service at ringside, and when we went to the casino, i was rudely told by staff that i could not smoke a cigar... in the SMOKING section of the casino. Well, that saved us spending good money gambling. cheap,... More
