I Like this place. Out of all the others in tri state this place feels at least fair. All the others feel like a big rip off Mountaineer, Meadows, Rivers. I go in those places with $600 between me and my wife and most time have to leave in less than an hour. At least here we can spend the whole day on this and have a great meal and come home happy and at least even most trips.
The slots here are quite generous, in my opinion. I think that anyone that complains that the slots are tight are simply, "Jackpot or bust," players that really have no business complaining. Generally, the slots here will let you double up or get to 150% pretty easily, so you just ticket out and put the original amount wagered back in and pocket the rest.
I have been to this casino six times in the last month and here's how it has gone:
I understand that these results are not typical, but even in experiences prior to that I have noticed that you can limit your losses and walk out anywhere from $50-$100 ahead pretty easy just by playing intelligently.
I don't play table games much, but have noticed that Let it Ride is almost never going on.
Customer Service here is nice, and everyone is very attentive. The waitresses come around for drinks orders every ten minutes or so.
I know nothing of the player's club. I have no interest in my wins/losses being tracked, so I'll just give it three stars.
The atmosphere is fine.
I know nothing of the hotel there.
The buffet is quite good, and all of the bartenders make good drinks.
We had a great mini vacation only an hour from home. Being regulars at Wheeling for many years, we decided to stay overnight instead of traveling to AC. Very nice clean rooms, check in was fast and easy. We won enough to keep playing and were fortunate enough to win a small jackpot from our Free Play! Very pleased.
The buffet was great and Breezeway was good too. The Pirates Cove needs a little work:( All in all , a nice time and we left happy. We hope to go back for another overnight stay. Hubby and I love to play in the middle of the night and travel all over the casino and have fun doing it! Good job Wheeling! The Meadows which is close to us is ok, but, very tight, no self serve free drinks, very little Free Play. Our home is Wheeling for fun and excitement!
