I mainly play the slots and have to say the payoffs here are the worst I’ve ever experienced! I don’t mind losing a few $$ if I’m entertained while so doing. These slots are by far the tightest I’ve tried and as a consequence they sucked all the fun (and my cash) out of what ought to have been a great weekend!
My wife and I first stayed in the hotel on our honeymoon. We got married on Valentines Day, and were gifted 2 nights, spa treatment, and food credits. The room was amazing! Could've stayed in that shower for hours on end. Comfortable beds, and cleaned nicely. The spa was also clean, and beautiful. A massage so great, and relaxing I fell asleep. We love Epic for the food, and great cocktails. Plus the big screen for sports. We play a lot of slots, and they have a great selection of games to play. Using the Camas rewards program is the only way to go. We've go to Northern Quest about once every 2 month to just play games. This coming Valentines Day (1st Anniversary) we're going back. We are doing 3 nights, and with all the rewards we've racked up took our bill from about $900 to $180. Makes losing feel like a down payment towards a great weekend,and we really don't loose very much if at all. We will be going there for years to come. Love Northern Quest!
The information and comments on this casino are somewhat dated so I thought I would add my comments. I generally only play slots, because I'm an idiot, so my input is mostly about slot play and general amenities.
The slots are toward the lower rate of return scale but to be fair they do indeed payout. Over the most recent 1 month period shows there were 34 jackpots over $5,000 paid out and 20 of those were over $10,000. I figure that is not too bad for a regional casino. All the video poker machines are 8,4 machines which is indicative of return levels for all machines. All machines accept cash and payout with vouchers. Vouchers can be used in different machines or redeemed for cash either in one of 5 or 6 cash machines or at any one three traditional cages. The multiple voucher problem has been solved as there are now only 2 types, one of which is only used in wide area multi-state machines. These machines are located immediately adjacent to the cage where they are redeemed. Casino floorspace is now nearly 40,000 sq ft due to expansions. This is a smoking casino with a relatively small non-smoking area. As this is probably the only area where smoking is permitted indoors in the Spokane area the comments about smokey atmosphere are somewhat overdone. This casino has one of the best air handling systems I've seen. Of course if you chose to sit next to a heavy smoker you are going to smell smoke, don't like it move to another machine, with 4,000 choices shouldn't be too hard.
