You will not win here. Playing 30 dollar slot, getting a 20 game bonus and winning $0 00. B.S. While there I talked to some of the workers, they all basically said no one wins here. All told I have been there 10 times and never won. The entertainment always sounds like a local garage band. Boring .
Have been going to Blue Chip few quite a few years. Not a big gambler but in all of those years of playing various machines the most I ever won was $210 on slots. I then went that same night that I won the $210 to play some craps and when I started winning the table managers were rude and began to complain how I was throwing the dice even though I was the only player at the time! I have had enough of this place and IMO the percentage of payout is nowhere near 90%, no way! If you decide to play at blue chip just decide how much you are willing to lose because you will not win, period... The place is not very well maintained or clean either, just look at how dirty it is when you walk up to the the front doors. The bathrooms are clean, I will give them that much. The buffet reminds me of nursing home food... One more complaint that I have is that the ventilation system is very poor at blue chip. It costs money to have a high percentage of fresh air incoming to circulated air and they I think that they also cheap out in this area of providing a nice environment for people that are spending very large amounts of money there. The air quality is very bad and my wife cannot go there any longer because it irritates her lungs very badly. I understand that many people that go to casinos smoke but they should at least do a better job of providing a better, healthier environment for those that don't. We have stayed in the hotel and it is nice but IF you can get a room during the summer season you will pay highly inflated prices.
We arrived and were assigned to a room -- Solara King -- that was supposed to have a view of Lake Michigan -- we got a view of the parking lot and garage. Our room -- on my usual side of the bed -- did not have a plug for my CPAP. The solution from the staff was to learn to sleep on the other side of the bed or drape an industrial extension cord. I spoke with Jack -- the hotel supervisor -- who displayed zero interest in trying to correct these issues. I suggested a room change to no avail. When I told him that we were considering leaving, he said fine, just drop the key cards off at the front desk.
We left and went to St. Louis where we had an absolutely terrific experience at Hotel Lumiere. If you have a choice, then chose anyplace else.
I used to be a regular player of the slots with a sapphire card but when the slots went so tight you couldn't win anything on quarters,dollars or 2cent machines I didn't go back for 6 months and they DEMOTED my card down to ruby with $5.00 in free slots play. hahahahahaha What a joke this casino is!
DOn't waste your time or money on the tightest slots of any casino I have been in. Try and get a free soda from all the girls walking around with EMPTY trays in their hand asking if you want something!
Slots are very, very tight. I stayed the whole night in the dollar, and big nickle area and saw nobody hit anything. Not even a cherry, or two bars. These machines are very tight and not a good gamble. Save your money for a trip to Las Vegas or, even, Biloxi but this place is just a sucker's cage. Stay away or be prepared to lose lots of money.
