We only live 1 hr. from Durant,we saw Styx in concert @ the Choctaw Event Center.Styx is my fav band(has been since 1975,now 51).the hotel let us check in early,the shuttle came & picked us up & brought us back to hotel. We have stayed @ the "old" hotel several times,hotel staff is very pleasant! We were @ "New' casino opening in Feb.2010 casino was very crowded,over 1/2 of slots kept going down & malfunctioning(only VGT slots),slots would not take tickets/or cash & even ticket redemption machines were not working ANYWHERE! We assumed the machines would payout better since it was a new casino but that just wasn't the case ESPECIALLY in this economy! It seems like while we were there(I actually witnessed someone playing 45.00 a hand on Liberty Freedom slots & only won 1200.00 back),like many casino's in La. or Ok. unless you have the bankroll to play "highend' slots & can substain astronomicle losses,stay w/ the penny slots(I have at least won enough @ times to keep playing)! Otherwise,play "highend" slots in Vegas where odds are so much better! Unless you want to
"contribute" to the "Border States" casino's-the odds are ALWAYS against you about 95% of the time! the casino's in these states(Ok/LA) are what fuels the economy in these cities/areas! I hope this helps many casino "enthusiastic" people!
