My first experience was not good at all. All the machines did was take and take. When you get a bonus it is not for very much. I make a lot of money and am in Pittsburgh for an extended stay. They are the ones losing out. I will try somewhere else. I wish it was fairly decent because I don't mind losing money but not AT THAT RATE.
Just got back from The Meadows. Ridiculous is the only word that accurately represents how tight the slots were. I brought my mother here to celebrate her 75th birthday...what a mistake. $600 spent between us and neither of us had a win over $25. I have been to casinos everywhere and I do not expect to win, but, I at least have a reasonable expectation of having some fun while I'm losing. I did not. Neither did she. Did I mention the $600 was gone in under 2 hours? They never even kissed me. Once I realized how unbelievably tight the slots were I started talking to people and watching the payouts on the machines around me. Guess what? NOBODY was hitting anything bigger than $25 and hits of ANY size were few and far between. Big surprise, huh? The slots manager needs to seriously re-think the business model. Nice looking place but then it ought to be the way they fleece you. Never...I repeat, NEVER...going back there and I absolutely cannot in good conscience ever recommend it to anyone. Mountaineer and Wheeling are only a short drive away so why bother?
They sell the place and change the players cards. Now you do not get discount drinks if you have a premium card. Why have premium cards then. I do not care about accruing points for a trip to some casino in mississippi. They need to get back to how they treated customers when it started.
This place is very bad. It does not play like a typical casino. I don't know what the pa gaming board does but it does not oversight this place properly. If you go here just throw your money in the air and watch the people scramble for it. That will be way more fun than you are going to get playing here. The meadows online web pass just took 2,800,000 points from my account with nothing to trade. No free food, no gifts, nothing. Free play is a joke. Wise up and boycott this lousy joint.
I spent the most horrible, aggravating day today at the Meadows Casino, March 11, 2014. The computers were down - I couldn't retrieve my points and free play: tickets wouldn't work in machines and thinking it was just a bad ticket, I put more money in the machine, planning to cash in my ticket at the cashier later and then this second ticket would not work either; waited half an hour to be hand paid because the computer system went down completely. The lines at the cashiers were soo long and I had to wait again. The entire experience was terrible. The PA system kept telling us that the casino techs were diligently working on the problem - ha! The Meadows system must have been put together by the same people that were hired to do the Obamacare website - totally useless and aggravating. This computer problem has happened at least two times in the past. How frustrating.
