“Great casino”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I love this casino-definately on par with the Vegas boys. The only thing I HATE about all Oklahoma casinos is the "rake"-the 50 cents you have to pay to play each hand at the table games. It's a fun atmosphere and they usually have great music!

“Giant Smokey Bar”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Went for a show and was met with that unmistakable stench of years of cigarette smoke. Really made for a lackluster evening.

“A Favorite.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Riverwind is probably my favorite state casino. I just seem to win more there than the others. I like the variety of slots and their restaurant is not too bad. It's also close to Norman--one of my favorite Oklahoma towns.

“Ding Ding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Love the sound of slot machines? Then you will love this casino. I have a hard time leaving...well until my money is gone. Ha! But seriously I usually have pretty good luck here and if you are a new rewards member they will give you like $25 to play with on your first visit.

That is correct! Sign up for a Wild Card, and earn 5 points on your first day and receive $25 in bonus play!

Thanks for the virtual high five!

“NEVERWIN! THAT SHOULD BE THEIR NAME”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

I have been going here since its debut and in the beginning I would win like crazy which I realize is what sucks you in. I am a regular,at least twice a week taking 100-200 each time and haven't won anything over 300 in 2years! I have earned up to 250-300 points in a single visit and all i got was $30 in free play and i have yet to receive any comp besides a free willows buffet,Which I'm sure EVERY player receives with their monthly rewards.Where is the bonus for those of us that play over the 20,30,100,200 points in a single night.Maybe we should earn tshirtsthey say we are stupid as hell for the continued patronage. I agree with half the reviews here. it's just not fun anymore unless you have time to spare only go on the nights where the offer money for your money at least you know you're getting something.But I guess that's the life of a gambler. I suggest you step up the rewards for those of us that spend more max betting on machines. I have friends that play 18 cents and win 1200! Maybe that's what I should do.Taking 20 every other day will last hours instead of my hundreds lasting minutes
