“Reeked of Smoke”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Although the Lumiere Place Casino is a no smoking attraction, I walked in and said the place smelled like smoke. My husband agreed with me. The entire time we were there, we couldn't escape the smoky smell so we cut our visit short.

“New years eve was a mismanaged nightmare.”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

They over booked to the point that reservations had a 3 hour wait. The new management is a joke and has no concept of how to run a casino. They have limited dinng choices and had 3 servers for the over flow solution. It took us 3 hours to get served. Do youraelf a favor and skip this nasty poorly managed under staffed sad excuse of a casino.

“Not so good anymore”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Getting unmaintained!

Closed one of the restaurants , very smokey and other smells in casino.
Limited food options and very poor beer selections. No IPA 'a this night.

Will try elsewhere! They sold and may take months for new owners to maintain and improve.

Gaming normal but roulette wheel monitors broken for months

All of them

Thank Ron W

“Save Your Money...”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

My wife and I decided to try our luck at the Lumiere Casino again during our annual trip to St. Louis. There is free parking in the Lumiere parking garage, but you really have to watch when walking between your vehicle and the casino. Some of the cars almost seem to target pedestrians. The thing that really stuck out to me on this visit was how dirty the machines were and how bad the casino stunk from tobacco smoke. On many machines, I had to blow off all of the ashes that some careless smokers had left. The seats even had a film to them. One thing that is nice is that there are self-serve beverage stations with soda and coffee. For the size of the casino, there are few cash redemption machines to cash out a ticket.

My wife and I were not able to win at any of the slot machines that we played. We have played the same machines in many other casinos across the US, and those at the Lumiere seem to operate strangely. Additionally, the pay out when you hit something is less than other casinos. In general, I find the casinos in the St. Louis area to be pretty stingy. For the traveling visitor, we didn’t find any advantage to getting the player’s club card. At least the casinos in Oklahoma will give you $10 free play for walking in the door and getting a card.

One thing that I found disturbing was about a dozen children sitting on a ledge area, just outside of the casino, at 2 AM! There are several bad outcomes that are possible with this scenario, with the minimum being exposure to excessive tobacco smoke, to a worst case of child abduction. Regardless, shame on the Lumiere for allowing this to even take place!
