At this writing, the Nez Perce management has not learned that one does not make money in a casino by featuring slots that do not play or pay and food that is over-priced and low in quality.
The newly built casino is good-looking. The change from plastic to nice tableware is welcomed. The completion of the hotel is nice, but as I have not stayed in it, I cannot comment. The inclusion of a spacious no-smoking gaming room is wonderful for many people.
But the lack of excitement and fun in the casino is driving user numbers into the doldrums. Yesterday, I visited after not being there for several months. The parking lot was nearly empty! It was Friday at 4 pm.
Inside, I found an elderly lady sitting in the foyer. I asked if she had a good time. She looked at me and calmy said, "This is the worst casino of all. I routinely fly to Laughlin or Vegas and I go to the Worley casino. This casino is so tight that you can put money in ten machines and never get even a ten cent win."
When I went inside, I talked with four other people. They all sighed. Each had similar complaints. One gentleman said he wished the casino help was friendly. At the least, he said, they could ease the pain by smiling when we come in, saying "good day" or greeting us. Instead, they sit behind counters or walk by, ignoring their customers.
I plunked money into a few machines myself. It was dismal. I could deal with losing my money if I was having fun. The others were right. You push and nothing happens. Over and over. Machine after machine.
So, I left.
I won't be back. And I caution you to avoid the place. Go to Worley or anywhere else.
