I had a terrible time at Meskwaki Bingo Casino Hotel. I tried to play the slot machines and ended up losing $200 in about 30 minutes. Then I tried to play the table games. They were awful! I sat at a blackjack table and hardly won any hands at all. Almost all of their table games have automatic machine shufflers. You can't tell me those things shuffle the cards randomly. I can't see why anyone would continue to gamble at that place. The casino was full of secondhand smoke, too. I hate cigarette smoke! People kept lighting up at the slot machines and at the table games. I don't know if I can go back to Meskwaki again.
This casino just recently stopped allowing bonus points on all video poker machines. The interesting thing is they aren't letting their customers know this up front. Saw that points were adding up much slower than normal and asked some workers about it. They put their heads together and finally remembered they recently excluded video poker from point multipliers. When asked if they posted anything or let players know, they said "only if someone asks". This place use to be pretty generous to their players but sadly is now becoming extremely greedy and taking away the good things that made them better. Time to find a new casino to play!
My husband and I just returned from a trip to Mesquaki...... The slot return is absolutely awful. We had to have our suitcases out of the room by 7:00 a.m. Just what we wanted to do after being up late in the casino. They can't seem to keep up with the rooms so want you to check out early. They cut back the play money and gave us a free breakfast buffet. The buffet was decent but not enough help so you had a long wait for drinks. We were there last October and had a marvelous time.. Since then it has really gone downhill and we don't plan on taking a trip there until things improve.
Casino invested over 110 million dollars for renovation and they have rolled back payout percentages to cover the latest investments. Player comp pays 1 penny on every dollar spent. I have gambled here for over 10 years and this is the worst payout that I have seen from the casino. Go to the Isle in Waterloo or riverside casino as they are both rated higher in all areas.
