I love Red Wind Casino. They are always friendly from the time they greet you when you walk in to the time you leave. I find I have more wins at this casino more then any other casino. Plus all the free drawings and free money you can earn is high in my book. Really enjoy the game day activities... More

While Red wind has recently been updated the whole building and parking a lot is smaller after you enter. The dining and customer service is usually great. Some of the floor managers wish they were in Vice but other then that it's okay. Mostly they are known for having one of the better buffets they are slowly becoming cheaper and... More

First time I've been here in over 10 years. Out in the middle of nowhere. The new non-smoking section is big-you don't even know that the smoking section is in the other room. A lot of new games I've never seen. (I walked out $411 richer! ) The smoking section was very smoky. 😝 Had to walk through there to... More

Its out of the way, but worth the drive. The atmosphere is great, people having fun and enjoying themselves. Security is everywhere. No loitering in this casino, no one asking you for money or trying to sale you merchandise. Its clean and the lighting is great. You can win in both smoking and non smoking. I've known a few people... More

I've been playing here for about 3.5 yrs, I have watched the changes (for the better), great dining, really like the grille, haven't tried seafood yet, but will, looks great! I hope they plan a hotel with spa in the future. A lot of smiling helpful employees too.

We like to go about once a month for their Blue Bird Special. They always have 3 choices. One is always Prime Rib. A great meal for a ver fair price. We also like to have breakfast there. We do not usually gamble, but we do like to eat.

They do offer a non-smoking section, but it did not appear they offered all the same game play. The restaurant appeared to be reasonable, but to get to most areas you have to walk through the smoking section, which is kind of a turn off.
