Previous to the rebuilding of the facility we visited the casino normally twice a month. The management has taken all the machines out that most of the customers like to play [ie the classic slots] previously you could play two or three credits with a chance to win maximum payout. Now with all the silly video game you must pay as much a five dollars a spin to have a chance for the maximum payout. My wife and I have made the decision to travel farther to a casino where they still cater to the customers. One such casino is Feather Falls in the Chico
area. Reno casinos also offer some of the classics. If you go to Win River you may as well give them your money at the door and save the time spent there.

You know how you look at places when you're young? They seem so much better than they actually are. Who knows? Win river might have BEEN an okay establishment at one point but not now. I was there for my birthday. A belated meal that was more inspired by my family that preferred to gamble. The restaurant wad empty and the server was awesome but it took forever to get my food, even longer to get the dessert. Where you eat is located right off the smoking section so if you have a problem with smoking, definitely pass on eating here. The influx of people has definitely gotten around to the lower classes of Redding. A lot of sketchy people around all times of the day, so lock your car and don't let your eyes off your belongings. As for the play, it varies and depends on what you sit down at. It's a casino, expect to walk away with some loss. If you can control yourself you might manage to keep your earnings. Don't let the pretty bells and whistles allow you to blame anyone but yourself. Overall, don't waste your time on this smelly and severely overrated environment.

I am no casino expert but I think for the rpice and the hype the presentation and food could have been better. The live music was a real disappointment. There was a bit of dishonesty on the promotion because they said there would be 3 areas of music to choose from. This was not so.
The servers were very pleasant, whoever. Iguess one has to consider the culture of the local citiznry, but still the music was awful.
