The wife and I have been there on several occasions. Have won some and have lost some. If I can walk away with the amount of money I went in with I am still a winner. Anytime you gamble you always take a risk of losing. Rooms are comfortable. Love the buffet.
This was my third trip there. My first two were good, but this most recent one was the best trip yet.
Went there last night (9/27/08). I played a marathon blackjack session for 8 hours. Got a buffet comped and a breakfast comped. The buffet was really good - food was very tasty, but the mashed potatoes were a little loose.
After leaving the tables, I decided to throw 20 into the slot machines. In 2 minutes, I was up $15, which was gas money for me to and from the casino. I left a happy man. Great service from the pit bosses and from the wait staff. Disappointing that you have to pay for drinks at the tables, though - but $3.50 isn't outrageous for a beer.
My husband & I have had some good luck with winning at Wheeling. Had a few loses, also had a great host. Played for points to win a trip to Harrah’s in Las Vegas. My host called me March 2, 2009 and told me that i won the trip and $1,000. She said she would get all information on the trip and let us know something the following Friday.
We went down that Friday and she knew nothing. We went the following week and she still knew nothing. (we? also went on a Monday the first time to collect my $1,000 and a gentleman said i would have to go through my host.) I can understand that, so we said ok. But after three more times and my host knows nothing or the specifics about the trip to Harrah's.
First she says we have a year to take the trip. i won the $1,000. I told her that I would like to put that in a CD to gain some interest. She could give me a yes or no. Then she starts to say that we would get the money when I take the trip, but she still would have to check on it and all reservations with Harrah’s.
i played with my money to get these points.......lots of money.......i could have taken 5 trips and saveed lots of money......I think I have been conned into this just so Wheeling had players lose there money...this girl will not back down....my husband and I think that they gave this trip? for one person only, just for me to say no I won’t take the trip if it is only for one person. (that way they can give that trip to one of their friends or family members) I won the trip & money and i want my money.
That $1,000 is a drop in the bucket for what we spend there and their machines are tough to hit.? Something just isn’t right here. My host told me last week that she would get back to me this week and let me know something ...once again....today is friday the 20th ...2009....1:00pm and I have not heard anything from her as of yet. I give her one week from today and i will go public with this!
It will be televisesd on channel 4 and channel 2 news. Now don't you think this host would know all the specifics on this trip before they give the trip away? And other places give away a trip for two, not just one. Wheeling is jerking me around.
Table games, amenities or hotel and food and drink rated 1 because did not use. This is a very average casino. Nothing special. I had a good time though and would highly recommend going. Slots were a little tight but there is a good variety so I probably did not play the right ones. People seemed to be enjoying themselves. Staff friendly but when I did have a question, they were hard to find. Would go back.
