Really the nicest looking casino in WI. but.......

Since the Mohican North Star remodeled and expanded, they are in my opinion the nicest casino in central WI by a wide margin. However, a fancy, up to date, and attractive casino doesn't mean that you will win anything, and that is certainly true at this place. Seems like they are trying to pay for the improvements in a very short time by screwing the machines down so they don't pay back anything.
I visited this casino along with my wife and another couple approx. a month ago and spent a good 4 hours there, and no one won anything. That is not the first time I walked out of this place with absolutely not one winning pot.
The place looks really nice, and the air is well circulated so no smoke smell is around unless you are sitting right next to a smoker. There are lots of machine's of all kinds so there should be no problem finding one that you like, but beware, none of them pay anything.
There is a nice center bar in the casino and the drink prices are reasonable and the bartenders are friendly. They have improved the food service and the snack bar located just off the casino floor has a decent variety of food along with a larger dining room located in a different area..
I only live about 50 miles from the casino but there are no good roads to get from where I live to the casino, so it takes at least 2+ hours to drive there which is really annoying and a big detriment to going there. In addition, I would never drive to or from the place at night because of the deer danger. There usually is one hiding behind every tree.
This is one of the worst casinos we have been to. The staff was very unfriendly. Whatever you do, do not ask anyone for directions--we did and we ended up on a gravel road with lots of pot holes and deers on it and we ended up going ten miles out of our way. This casino really needs to take a course on customer service because it is the worst I have ever seen. Good luck if you plan on visiting this place. It is BAD.
Mohican Northstar used to be one of my favorite casinos to visit. I have been there many times and had a great time, the people were friendly and you could play for a while and have a good time with friends. you did not have to bring an enormous wad of cash to play for a while and sometimes walk away up a little.
Northstar has expanded and built a fancy upscale casino in place of the old one and I have noticed the new casino pays for squat, the atmosphere has changed and customers are angry. It is hard to have a good time when there are people on either side of you complaining about the payouts. I frequent other casinos in the area and find one of the best to be in Whittenberg. If you go to the new Northstar casino bring a helmet because they might as well beat you over the head and steal your wallet......................................... but hey, the soda is free.
Northstar Casino in WI has to have the worst payouts I have ever seen. Take a lot of money and don't plan on taking any home with you. It was not only me either, I have never seen so many negative grumble patrons in my life as I did at this casino.
I should have known when I walked into the door and the couple leaving greeted me with 'Don't bother even going in there' and then I heard all the negative complaining about how the machines were paying when I walked into the restroom.
They do not offer match plays to new customers and instead they give you a slip which you have to use in selected machines, which as I expected were set to pay out nothing but make me feel like I was already winning.
The players club was not one of the friendlier ones I have ever seen but as for the floor staff, they were very very friendlly and the food was very good. Not as cheap as a lot of the other casinos in the area that offer food but still not too badly priced.
They do not have a hotel and I did not play the tables, so I can not honestly rate these two items but I heard they are building a hotel as I write this so hopefully when it is completed, they will follow other casino practices as offer so really good hotel packages, because as of right now, I do not see a reason to ever want to return to Northstar any time in the future.
