    What is wrong with this place. Is this a whole state of rude people or is it just employees who work at this casino? Seeing as how we were in the US Marines for 28 years and have lived all over the country, I have to say Ive never lived in a place with so many rude people -mostly women who work there. My husband and I have been going to this casino every week for over two years and have spent a lot of money there. At first we enjoyed it and won a little bit but it seems like someone new took it over and it has since gone down hill. No wins - machines have gotten so tight I hate to play - drinks are terrible - and once while gambling, an attendant came over and locked out a machine next to me for an hour and a half while the gambler went to dinner? People playing 2 and 3 machines in a row...our bonuses get smaller and smaller. Its just gotten maddening going there...we used to enjoy it but not any more .We are done with this place
