We've been to all the Oregon casinos and think Chinook Winds is the best by far. Many of the Oregon casinos are as bright as the beach and as highly organized and glitzy as an auto show room. Chinook Winds keeps the lights subdued and classic rock playing low in the background. The machines are varied and definitely seem to pay waaaay better than Ilani or Spirit Mountain. The staff is super friendly in my experience so I don't understand the other reviews. Perhaps the reviewer was the problem...? Overall this casino has an excellent vibe. Food is just OK. And when you need a break, a beautiful beach is only 200 yards away.
