Not too bad

It is much better since it has gone entirely smoke free. Machines don't pay a whole lot, but that's what gambling is all about. Basic food available for purchase.

I definitely enjoy the poker tables (I am not a slots player, so no opinion there), but to me the highlight of Ho Chunk is the fantastic RV park out back...Full hook ups, nice bathrooms.

The place was clean and smoke free! The only downfall was that they did not serve alchohol, but they are working on it!

I'll admit, I'm not much of a gambler. I'll play $20 total and then walk away. It was nice walking in to a smoke-free environment and the noise level was not bad. We could actually carry on a conversation without yelling. It's only slots, which was different. All 3 of us lost our $ within an hour - I was... More

I was unsure what the casino would be like compared to other gaming venues in the area but was pleasantly surprised with what we encountered. Upon entering, it was great to not encounter the typical smokers haze or have eyes watering after 15 minutes. The smoke free environment is a wonderful thing for those patrons with asthma, COPD, or other... More

This is Wisconsin's first non smoking casino. However, nice outdoor enclosed smoking designated areas for smokers. Friendly, professional staff. Fun machines of all denominations.

This casino is not regulated. The payout is terrible. I mean you look around the entire place an no one looks even close to happy. The machines are money suckers and the bonus rounds pay little to nothing. Your doing great if you walk away with $20.00 in winnings. People will leave there machines to get more money and will...

What better way to just simply give your money away ~ head to a casino. In terms of casino's this is tiny. The times I've been there the payout has been terrible. They have gone to a non-smoking casino which is great! The food there is actually really good & very reasonable. They always have a daily special. But if... More

Received a promotional offer in the mail and decided to check it out. 1 1/2 hour drive. Easy to find. Rewards staff friendly and efficient. Casino clean and bright. Many new machines. Most are tied to their Bingo, but didn't try that. Loved the No smoking. Several beverage centers with many choices. (cups too small,tho). Had lunch at Gambler Grill.... More

The restaurant - basic diner food - was surprisingly tasty and very reasonable. Not very attractive tho. Had fun in the casino - no watery eyes or smelling like smoke. We could stay awhile and enjoy ourselves.
