I have been to the Couer d Alene casino 7 times, I drive from Washington State. The last 2 times the payouts were very low. I stayed for 3 nights and 4 days...I had no big wins and neither did my mom.I am trying to figure out what is going on. They also changed the buffet to be closed on Mondays Tuesdays and Weds and Thursdays forcing us to eat breakfast and dinner at the cafe. We loved the buffet and feel the prices are reasonable. So we will try again hoping that this time the machines are playing at a higher percentage.I wish they would take my opinion and change their buffet days,and return it to the way it was before. The casino is comfortable, has a wide variety of machines, easy to maneuver around and find your way.
