  • I have been a fan of Little River for many years. I appreciate the free slot play and free buffet voucher for my birthday. I chose to start gping to Gun Lake, because the drive is shorter. I have noticed they have a tight grip on any winnings they give out. I NEVER WIN! I called and asked if they had any benefits for birthdays and I was told to swipe my card at the kiosk and I would be given a gift.I did that and NOTHING!! so I inquired if I did something wrong. I was informed that my gift was 200 entries in to some drawing! These are some cheap bastards and I will not be back. I will take my money to Little River where they appreciate their customers/ donors. Seriously how tight can they be with all the money they are making?
  • Went into the bonus on several machines, but I never received more than 10 free spins, out of a possible 600 free spins. I did not win more than than $59 at anytime, dropping a cool 700 bucks in 2 and a half hours. And to think this is the Christmas Season, the season of giving. Hope it gets better closer to Christmas.
  • The new buffet is amazing! Literally the best around. Love the slushy drinks and the bar with bands and entertainment. Only downfalls are it's still kinda small. No hotel to stay the night, no poker room or bingo room.
  • I give Gun Lake casino a one star, as I go there infrequently because I never win anything there. I went 1/6/18 with my folks, but was reminded why I will probably never go again. Each time I’ve been there (and I spend quite a bit of hard-earned money when I go to a casino), I have NEVER won anything significant. It’s terrible, in my opinion. I can’t remember the last time I was there before yesterday (years), but as mentioned, I wouldn’t go back. When the most you win on a spin out of $60 was $5, that’s pretty bad. Plus the maximum’s on the machines are too high. The lowest maximum (on the penny machines) that I found are $1.50/spin. The machines I like to play are lowest maximum of $2.00/spin, which you go through $20 within a few minutes, which adds up to $100’s within a short time. Just disappointed, as I thought with the ‘addition’ to the casino, I would think they could ‘share’ a little of the wealth. (My folks did poorly too, and have been lately there). As far as staff goes, on one machine that I wanted to play, the machine had four empty beer bottles, and three full ashtrays on it. The only person I could see that worked there, was too busy on his phone to catch his attention, so I proceeded to put the bottles and ashtrays on the floor at the base of the corner machine (so no one would fall over them), and wiped the machine off with a hand sanitizer sheet that I had with me. In general, the staff has been friendly, but not sure if there’s not enough staff around, or just not enough payouts to warrant added staff. The one time someone came over to me on a machine, was because my ‘help’ light was on mistakenly, I must’ve hit it by accident. He was okay, but not overly friendly, or treated me like ‘family’ as the survey asked. I’m sure many people will continue to go to Gun Lake Casino, but this card player will not. Threw away my card, don’t need it, I’ll go somewhere else.
  • I love Gun Lake Casino! The food at Sandhill Cafe is delicious and you can't beat their prices. The Harvest Buffet has everything you want/need from a buffet and everything is fresh. The overall guest service is outstanding and I always feel welcome. Considering the casino is a smoking establishment, it is well ventilated. Newsflash: If you write a review of a casino based on whether you won or lost, you're not doing it right. If everyone did that, the reviews would be useless. I review the service, the decor, and the overall feeling I have when I'm there. The casino is very well maintained and exceptionally clean. I always feel welcome at this casino and I recommend a visit for anyone feeling lucky!
