I feel like I am constantly contributing to the jackpot winners. May be I sound like scour grapes, but I never win playing the slots at this casino.

They have a very large non smoking area and staff cleaning the machines in the entire area. This is important to me because I have been to many casinos where you feel like using sanitizer on them. The restaurants are nice and the food is very good and prices are good.

We frequent the Red Wind Casino about 2 times a month. They have very friendly dealers and supervisors. Even tho we don't go often, they know us by name and are always friendly and fun to talk to. We mostly play blackjack and if you don't have an engaging dealer, it ruins the experience. There is a deli, Seafood restaurant... More

Same slots that you would find at any casino but the Buffet, WOW The food as well as the service is the best ever. I've been to some of the largest Indian casino Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun as well as casinos in Las Vegas non are as good as this one. A must visit if your in the area

I have now had the honor of eating at the Squalli-Absch Grille three times. The staff has been welcoming and courteous on each visit. On my last visit, I ordered the Squalli-Absch Filet trio. It consists of three Filets cooked to order, each prepared a different way, and served on garlic mash potatoes. This dish was excellent. Each Filet was... More

I've eaten at casinos in LosVegas and Gulf Port but this one didn't even come close. Food plentiful but not very tasty. We won't go again.

The casino is bright, moderately loud, and can be expensive if you don't know when to go home as there are no guaranteed winners. Parking is readily available through the self-park garage or valet parking service. Once inside your gaming locations are either smoking or their newer non-smoking section which is quite large. Either section offers a wide variety of... More

So sad to hear the Red Wind is discontinuing LIVE entertainment in the Cabaret. This is very unfortunate. It's one of the main reasons for us going there with friends.
