I just watched the news and saw where The Meadows Casino was down 35% in Febuary. I'm sure they are blaming it on the economy..But the truth is 'THEIR MACHINES NEVER HAVE ANY JACKPOTS"! This comment isn't coming from someone who spends a couple of hours and goes home. This comment is coming from someone who will play the slots for 18-20 hours at a time.I'm not just saying that I'm not 'hitting'. No one is hitting. I play $5.00 machines. I've put in $160 in a machine and NEVER GOT ONE HIT !I play $1.00 machines and never get enough to even play on..same goes for Penny slots. As you can see I'm all over the floor that's why I can truly say that the machines never hit Jackpots and they never even give a person enough to play on. Last year I had $9000 in Jackpots. A lot you might think but not for someone who goes 3 times a week and spends between 40-60 hours in that week. The place is sooo packed that there are no parking spaces but they are so tight that they can't pay out any money !The PLAYERS CLUB is a Joke ! It's a smoke filled room full of dirty ash trays and ashes and empty drinks everywhere. Once you go in there no one ones to sit by you because you smell so bad from the smoking. TERRIBLE PLACE TO GO ! YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING ARE NEXT TO ZERO! You might as well throw your money out your car window. PS I've been going there for 14 years and I'm not going back again. By the way..I spend at least $1000 every time I go. UNBELIEVABLE !
I've been going to Meadows since it was in the tent...Back then you could get a few hits and play for a while with your money. Now they take your money with about a 20% payback. I'm not sure how they are managing to keep those machines so tight but someone from PA gaming should be doing a check on them. Everyone you sit next to is so disgusted with the slots. Table games are OK and staff folks on them are very friendly and helpful but we've made the rounds to the other casinos in the area and they are definitely the worst for slots....WVa casinos are much better...Bye, Meadows.
Slots are worse than ever. The slots take money at an alarming rate with no payout. A $100 bill can literally be gone in 10 minutes playing at lowest amount. I have not walked out with payout in my pocket since early in 2011. I've stopped going there and am trying out Casinos in the area. I have not seen someone win a hand payout in over a year. Tried going all different times and days with no luck. Also, there is a noticeable decrease in crowds. Gee, can't figure out why. Casino clean and food decent, slots stink.
I must start off saying that I did not play the slots at the Meadows. I always go with my gut and my gut told me that the slots were not paying off. Also, I saw a lot of disappointed slot players and didn't hear a lot of winning bells, sirens, and horns from the slots.
Played Blackjack along with Mini Baccarat and enjoyed them both. The dealers were pleasant, especially at the Baccarat table where I spent the majority of my time. Kudos to Meadows for having $10 tables for Baccarat, which seems to be unusual for non-Vegas casinos.
My father enjoyed the casino as it appeared to have a more mature crowd and atmosphere. Being younger, it wasn't my ideal atmosphere but I had no complaints and I definitely have been in worse casinos (can you say Presque Isle).
Food selection was good in my opinion. I really haven't seen any benefits to their Player's Club, especially since I didn’t' play slots.
Overall, I liked the Meadows and would go back. I'm not sure if it's the ideal place for slots, but, for table games it’s better than most of the casinos in PA and WV
