All slots but no table games. The non-smoking atmosphere is very welcome. Wish they had a better food selection than just grill items.

Did not win, I think machines do not pay, they took all my money and did not even allow enough pay back to play for a while. Need a good restaurant that serves drinks and dinner, they have a grill with so so selection.

Clean, smoke free, decent return, but no table games, and no hotel. Stop when you are in Madison, Wi, and judge for yourself.

This gaming Casino is small..the security was very rude to minorities I won't go there again even if you pay me to go. Don't get it confused with the Ho-Chunk in the Dells I love that! They're welcoming and kid friendly.

Playing for over a year there I cannot accept this review as Not being SPAM that is derived from a source that comes from the casino propagandist source from within. All other reviews that contain only the fact that it is SMOKE FREE and do not really pertain any usefull gambling info to new clientele are derived from this source as well. That's a 95% spam rate with only 5% truth in transparency backed (for me) because that's only smoke free advertising without usefull gaming fact. This IS the purpose of a gamer to read articles of fact that can give good info about the real facts that any full time 8 hrs. Gamer would look for. No possibility to gamble 1000 dollars a day and average a win or loss ratio of 50 dollars each time without variance. Incentive to just play that amount and play max bet would surely ensure a high Roller clientele with an 8 hr.play time. Most of these types of reviews have the most favorable comments for smoking but this one has the opposite effect as no experienced gamer playing in this particular casino/bingo??? Hall/casino don't know which it is day by day would put a favor to the helpful info withinin unless there was a shred of transparent truth within its propagandist message. El Cortez put it bluntly that the criminal staying in their casino was not profiled or noticed because he did not win or loose a substantial amount of money keeping him off the radar. This casino is old school and would have a higher amount of win loss cash ratio to examine this fact than a Bingo Hall / Casino??? operating without table games. Anyone playing this amount at Ho Chunk non table games is a high Roller in my opinion. If 50 dollars were the average loss or win there would be a packed house of a high Roller community every day. 1000 at 8 hours per day with 50 buck result in loss is completely idiotic to print when your customers need to be consulted by laughter when Rude obnoxious low ball players smelling like booze run off patrons in disgust and no security measures notice when only 50 patrons are playing at the time. I have my recall to prove this zombie atmosphere truly exists because HONOR and humor can expell the effect if it is comming from a patron. 15 seconds to turn their attitude to a smile is what Hospitality is all about. Unfortunately only prudent concerned and compassionate means can overcome this energy in 15 seconds. If you don't believe me ask your staff about Saturday Late Night and a concerned patron who did this at the auto cash out then proceeded to walk out a TOTAL LOSER that found his own dignity pride and respect through consoling the uncovered patron. I was Happy that the cashier and security out numbering the patrons all gave the most grandiose genuine smile to me. This was indeed my house chunk gold because I wore a retirement funny hat and came to play 1dollar in the hopes that my sons money could return my honor from within. Thanks to the staff that Knight(no spelling errors here) for compassionately listening to my line of I am trying to cure an Autistic family by taking a dollar to play the Wizard of Oz for my ASD son to at least start this zombie epidemic to a cure that I had to have for myself.
