Sad.. Sad.. Sad I agree with most of the negative reviews here. I have been playing here in Durant for almost 4 years. Since the beginning of 2009 the Casino stopped paying. Recently.. it is too bad..Call me a fool - Idiot -- or anything..But two weeks ago when I went I lost $700 - in one machine. I love the wild stallion penny machine and always bet max $2.50 at a time. Believe me.. for $700 it did not give one f****** bonus. May be its my bad I should have walked out of the machine after $200. But looking to get my money back.. I lost all my bankroll which was $700. There are periods I won here before 2009. But this was worst. I was angry. But who else I can blame except me. And I will never go back again.PLEASE DONT GO AND LOSE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY
MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN GOING TO CHOCTAW FOR OVER 10 YEARS. WE WOULD PLAY SLOTS IN THE OLD CASINO AND HAVE FUN. WE LOST SOMETIME AND WON SOMETIME. THE NEW CASINO WAS BUILT AND YOU COULD STILL HAVE A GOOD TIME. WHEN THEY BUILT THE LAST CASINO WITH THE NEW HOTEL, THE SLOTS HAVE BEEN TERRIBLE. WE BOTH RETIRED IN NOVEMBER OF 2009. WE WERE LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING. THE SLOTS HAVE BEEN HORRIBLE SINCE 2010. WE HAVE LOST AND KEPT GOING BACK HOPING IT WOULD BE BETTER NEXT TIME. INSTEAD EACH TIME GOT WORSE AND WORSE. WE CAN NOT EVEN WIN ENOUGH FOR GAS. WE DRIVE 2 HOURS TO GET THERE AND 2 HOURS BACK. WHAT A DISSAPOINTMENT.
I just stayed at this resort casino the first week of May with my friend. We go on a few big gambling trips a year, usually to places like Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Reno, Take Tahoe.
First the cons: This was our first time gambling in OK. What a shock, let me tell you. First jaw dropper was the 'state' takes a $0.50 'ante' for every bet placed. That's right, for a $10 table minimum bet, you are paying an extra 50 cents a hand. Ok, that is irritating, highly shady, but whatever. Then we are sitting there playing the tables, and drinks are NOT complimentary. Not only do they charge you for drinks while you are losing your money to them, the drinks are OUTRAGEOUSLY priced and the waitresses are slower than molasses. What a scam! One white Russian was $7.50 and it was mostly ice cubes. highway robbery. The tables, we did awful. I don't expect to win a pile of chips in ten minutes, what I do expect is to go back and forth and keep playing for a couple of hours. I lost $300 in an hour at the minimum bet tables. (Blackjack, let it ride, four card poker, and Texas hold em). The slots were pretty bad as well. Let me tell you a FACT, the slot machine reels turn and stop more quickly than anywhere else I have ever played. This is so greedy, so not only are you losing because they never pay out or give bonuses, but you are losing at a faster rate because the reels stop quicker so you have to spin/play more quickly! I am NOT imagining this! LOCALS beware, you are being TAKEN for suckers by this casino!! The Pros: The rooms were on par or above anything in Vegas. They were just awesome. Very stylish, clean, the bathrooms were luxurious. The restaurants were good, we ate at the 1832 steakhouse. The prices were ok for a casino steakhouse, not super. The air filters on the casino floors were outstanding. they did a great job of keeping the place from being smoky. Unless you were sitting right next to a person smoking we couldn't smell smoke on the casino floor. Conclusion: I would definitely go here to do a weekend getaway at the resort. I wouldn't gamble here though until they make some serious changes in their protocols and loosen up the slots znd offer some free drinks.
Choctow Casino's have their own pay-out table. Traditional payouts should be 94% to 98% payback on the slots.
Choctow has reversed this to 94% to 98% holdback and a 2% to 6% payback to the customer. This sytem works quite well for them. There is no doubt in my mind that Choctow is undercutting the payouts but it seems the Political machine in Oklahoma has a hand in the Pie so nothing will ever change. As long has the Sheep come they will continue to be FLEECED!!!!
Went to Choctow in Durant over the weekend ( Saturday afternoon ). The place was not busy at all. Row after row of empty slot machines. I found out why there are so few customers!! NO decent payouts or bonus spins. I was hoping to spend the better part of the afternoon hours there. Boy was I mistaken. I lost my entire bankroll ( $200.00 ) in less than one hour playing the 25 cent machines. Everyone I talked to said the same thing.
