To whom it may concern. Payoffs once and awhile are good advertising for you're casino! I've been in the you're casino quite a bit! I can say with a clear conscience that you're pay out percentage is the worst of any casino I have been to in my life. That includes Reno, Vegas and many in Washington state!!
I consider myself an avid player at slots. Been to every casino on the I5 corridor and Snoqualmie has the worst payouts in the state. I've won jackpots at most but this Casino pays out rarely on Jackpots. They also do not advertise if a slot hits so unless you see someone win, you'll be left guessing. If you stick to minimum, low bets on dated machines (older games) you can stay stagnate at best. The Casino knows they don't payout well and have no plans to change it. They leverage on their dining and cleanliness to bring back repeat victims. I'd recommend skipping this casino for this reason. Not sure why the state hasn't investigated them yet. Stick to table games, it's harder for them to edge on those so your odds are better at winning.
It is such a beautiful location for a Casino! The land around it is amazing with Mount Si seeming to smile down on you! However, no matter how beautiful the grounds or building is, people want a respectable chance at winning!! I get a chance to pop over from Seattle with a respectable amount of cash to spend. I will try 4 or 5 different slot machines trying to find one that will give me some fun ($$$) back, to no avail!! I was coming 3-4 times a month, but now only make the effort once a month! How sad to have this beautiful location, but NO decent payouts. I will be heading to Muckleshoot or save for a Vegas Trip soonly!
I have been playing at the Snoqualmie Casino since it opened and have won a few jackpots on the slots, but in the past months the slots have gotten alot tighter. You don't get the "every few winnings" to keep you playing anymore...its a suction & draining feeling from your wallet to the machine and you are the middleman. TIP: if you put in a $100 bill the machine will take it quicker than putting in $20'S.
I feel since the food is expensive and so are the drinks that they could at least let us win a bit more. After a concert we wanted to have Sushi and were told there was a 2.5 hour wait....You're Kidding?....and the eating area only seats around 20 people. So we decided after losing $$ before the concert and after, that we would get takeout from there...they DO NOT have all the choices on the takeout menu. I would like to see them enlarge Kiindai's to accommodate more people.
The Valet service is very friendly,quick and cheerful....but they let a visually intoxicated lady get into her car and drive away....WOW...I WAS NOT IMPRESSED with that.....since I was going to be on the same roadway in a few minutes too.
The Waitresses are very friendly and do get your drinks quickly but if you go during the weekdays and before 5pm...they are scarce to find.
I don't believe the Sno Corporate office figured the casino would be a large draw in such a short time since the Muckleshoot is only a half hour away (but I feel it has a lower class of patrons there, this is why I stopped going to the Mucks since they opened0. Summary: If you want a chance of winning go during the weekdays, mornings are better, early mornings on the weekends or after 11pm daily. If there are more patrons playing they are tighter than a few playing. Good Luck!
The poker room is small and usually feels crowded at the tables even when the room isn't full. The dealers are professional and competent for the most part but the supervisory staff is unfriendly. I never get a good feeling when I walk in there. They generally play 4-8 limit and 2-5 no limit. The high hand payouts are skimpy and I generally don't play there anymore.
The waitresses in the main casino can be very cute although the ones that service the poker room are nothing special. If you have to have a no limit game then this is the closest option to Seattle but for my money there are better places to play cards. Parkers and Diamond Lil's being two choices. Tulalip if you have to have a no limit game.
