Players club line is long and slow though. Be prepared to wait! However we did find someone to help us after our wait in the line and found we had an issue with both of our player cards rather than have to get back in line someone took our cards and fixed the glitches very quickly. We had a great night and were able to play the slots without feeling as though they were taking all our money without giving some back!

Thank Matabby

The Bayou Buffett's food was wonderful and plenty of it. Also, don't leave without trying the Bienet's, they were awesome!

This place has really grown and the resort they have added is a plus. The gaming area is still the same, in the respect the machines all say feed ME.

Very little winnings at the slot machines. This must be typical as the slot machines were not busy either, but the tables were.

Before the advent of table games in WV, one could play here for hours on a minimal ($50-$60) bankroll. Any slot game that had a semi-profitable bonus round now gone (On The Money!!!, Alien Attack!, Barracuda, Treasure Quest, etc.) About 1/3 of the slots here are now 1 cent progreesives where the minimal bet is in the range of $1.50-$4.00, depending on the game. They EAT your money and provide ZERO entertainment value!!! If one keeps their bet in the range of 50-75 cents/spin, you can plan on losing $60.00 in about 30 minutes!!!!

Comps here are a joke!!!! Wear a Hawaiian shirt and get 10 dollars free play??? WHAT A PROMOTION!!!! The Meadows Casino in PA gives regular free play in the range of 10 dollars-30 dollars every few weeks to a low-roller like myself. I have family members who have had their names drawn 2-3 times for $250 dollars free play at The Meadows Casino. Mardi Gras does not even come close!!!!

The Friday Night Seafood Buffet used to be $19/person here and was a good bargain. Now it costs $25/person with a $15/person surcharge for all you can eat Snow Crab (not King Crab)!!!

As I am not a naive person, I realize casinos are not built on the cash of winners. This place is built on greed and does not even let one have an enjoyable experience for any length of time. The payback percentages are pooron the machines here, and there is definately not a break on meal prices for the many losers. Heed my advice friends. STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!!
