“THE MYSTERY”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

I have played slots at Riverwind and at Newcastle Casino over the last two years and I have learned that both of these casinos seem to be able to totally control their payouts at any time with the click of a mouse. at times you hear bells going off everywhere and then all of a sudden the entire place becomes silent and you never hear the bells again. It happens at Riverwind and at Newcastle Casino. If they can turn the machines on and turn them off at will then they shouldn't call it gambling because it isn't a gamble for them. If the bells stop ringing get up and run away as fast as you can. Nothing in the casino will hit at all during that time. They turn them on for an hour or two and then turn them off for the rest of the day to recoup the money that they lost.That is what happens when the Chickasaw Tribe regulates their own casinos.

“Nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

I went there on march 23, 2012 and I love this place. The high dollar slot machines really pay off regularly if you have the money to hang with them.

“helping the chickasaw social welfare fund”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

some will say the machines are tight and they are but some of them pay off big and small. 2,700 of them, so there are a lot of choices a few hot and many cold. the steaks at autograph are better than the stockyard cattlemen's. go for the ribeye at $31 after winning a small win outside. wine was good too. my firends devoured the cheesecake and i was too full. its an indian casino so it helps the tribe with full scholarships, medical care, housing etc and no direct cash benefit so i call it a donation to the nation while having good adult entertainment.

“Riverwind”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012 via mobile

Ok people,one more time. Riverwind is a CASINO,this is a place where you can gamble with your money. All of the people that wrote bad reviews just didn't pick the right machine. Don't be in such a hurry to spend your money,walk around a bit and look at how other people are doing,this will give you an idea of which machines are paying and which ones are not. Those machines are programmed to pay out so much per day and others r programmed not to pay out. I have won and lost. If you can't afford to lose $20,then don't go. And to those who don't like the cigarette smoke,Friday & sat nights r the worst time to go there,its always packed on these nights.

“Huge casino!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

This casino is huge so make sure you have your cell phone handy if you go with friends! You can get lost here!! We haven't won anything huge here but it's good for some time away with friends. Never have eaten here or stayed in the hotel either. Just gambled and that was fun! :)
