I will be driving down to Spokane in a couple of weeks and thinking of checking out the Wild Horse casino in Pendleton. Have any members been there? Doesn't look to bad on the website. Craps with 5X and $3 minimum. My wife likes the slots, does anyone know if they are real slots in the Indian casinos in Oregon or bingo machines? All I could find on line was that the non indian slots ave VLT's.

Once, about three years ago. Wasn't a bad place, played some craps and blackjack and had a good buffet with the player's club sign up offer.

Check if it's rodeo week down there. Rodeo is big and the place was jumping when we went... which was fun for playing, but no chance of accommodation.

Thanks thecesspit. Haven't booked a room yet but the reservation app doesn't show it booked up. Have some friends that have gone to their poker tournament week in the fall several times and really enjoyed it.

We stayed there a couple of times: nice Indian casino, located a few miles from town, close to the freeway.

They just finished a major remodel: we have booked a room to visit again at the end of September.

One visit they had a ring set up outside with a card of MMA fights.

One craps table: not much money being bet.

There was a good mix of slots, with losts of three reel machines.

The time to hit the dice table at the Wildhorse is when they are running their poker series. That table is packed at those times.

I haven't been over there in a few years but from what I remember, alcohol can only be purchased in the bars/restaurants, and not taken out onto the floor.

The casino itself is small-ish, but then again it's Eastern Oregon so what do you expect.

I stopped in twice last summer, not much to report that others haven't already. I don't play slots so I didn't pay attention to whether they were "real" slots or VLTs.
