Winnavegas Casino Review
The Winnavegas Casino Hotel is located near Sloan, Iowa about three miles west after taking the Sloan exit off I-29. It is owned and operated by the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
It is a land-based casino with an adjoining hotel.
They also have a large bingo hall attached right with the casino.
The casino itself was kind of small for a land-based casino but had a pretty good selection of slots and table games.
The Winnavegas Casino website says to have over 650 slot machines. They have a decent selection of each type of slot that you can probably find what you are looking for.
If you go, be sure to get a player’s card when you walk in. When I went they were offering $10 of free slot play with an additional $10 given after you get 10 points for getting a player’s card. This is a good deal and worth the hassle of getting a card.
The selection of table games were good for a smaller casino.
A couple of things I would recommend to them is to have more beverage dispensers available and more ticket redemption machines. They had only one dispenser in the casino and one in the bingo hall, which was closed off to casino patrons during bingo.
They only had one ticket redemption machine that I was able to find, which meant a walk and wait in lines for anyone else redeeming tickets.
It was a good casino to visit and worth the time if you have never been.
They have a buffet just off the casino. I didn’t eat there but it smelled pretty good.
They had an outdoor concert the day I was there, which brings up a good point.
Most casinos that have concerts have only one way in and out of the casino. By the time we left the casino, the concert was about to start and the line of cars going into the casino was backed up almost the entire three miles back to the interstate. If I saw that line of traffic backed up and all I wanted to do was go to the casino, I would have turned around and left.
Anytime I go to a casino in the evening, I check to see if there is a concert that night and usually avoid it if it is near concert time.
