What a joke TS was last night! A lot of machines out of service...What the hell kind of up grade is that? More people walking around than anything. Most went to Vernon to play. I feel sorry for the people that liked superball keno. The Keno machines they got are shit... To bad they lost all the regulars...Oh well TS doesn't care.. Not going back ever!

Don't go to TS to gamble. Don't even gamble unless it's once in a blue moon for recreation with your family or friends. Also, TS has the worst odds posted of any NYS operation bar none. Vernon is actually pretty good. If anything go bet a few dollars on the new e-currencies and wait. It worked in spades for me and costs next-to-nothing while exposing you to massive gains you will never see again in your entire life.

I used to go to Turning Stone, but have stopped going about a year ago for a few reasons. I don't want to lose money on slots. It used to be you could play slots for a few hours if you were conservative with your bet. Maybe you would win a little, but it was more for fun than trying to hit it big. After a while, going there wasn't fun at all. The slots are a bore and the fastest way to lose cash.

The biggest reason, however, is the people that ruin the experience for everyone else. You would nearly always be next to someone who either reeks, is rude or completely pissed they are not winning. If you are getting that mad about it and you smell like week-old urine, you probably should be putting your money into something else, like soap. Don't dare go on or around the first of the month. It will make you hate welfare more than anything.

Then you have the gems that frequent the bingo parlor. Wow. Seriously, if you want entertainment, go to Bingo. You have never seen crazy like that.

Never been there. Thanks for the posts. Gambling at a place like this can only make you suicidal. Do something healthy with your time like walking your dog. Keep your money.

I can't understand would leave the US to go to the Indian Nation. Every $ spent there adds to King Ray's fortune. His throne of gold grows every day. Just think of how local US citizen owned businesses could thrive if the Oneidas were not removing revenue from NYS.

Yepper! And don't forget the 5,000+ employees that would be on unemployment and NOT spending any of their paychecks at the local US citizen owned businesses in Oneida County.

I was there this afternoon. It was pretty bad. Everything is so cramped and half the machines are not up and running. You would also think they would come up with a better system to reissue the defective cards they sent out. 80,000 new card were sent from a third-party vendor and the magnetic strips on all were deactivated. The guy passing out the free cookies in an attempt to cheer up the hundreds of people in line waiting for a new card told us that.

If TS was smart, they'd shut the place down for the time it take to do a complete cleaning. The place reeks.

AGREE is correct.They are in the process of switching their machines over from the debit card system (Diamond Card) to cash, due to the agreement just approved with the State, and to remain competitive with the future State approved casinos. Previously they weren't allowed to operate with cash. A company was hired that specializes in this to handle the transformation, including all new computer systems, programming, etc. Certain casino employees have been working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week for months prior, with that company, to try to have everything switch over without skipping a beat. The transformation is not going as planned and all the bugs are being worked on. Workers involved are working extremely long hours and under great pressure and duress. To top it off, they had the magnetic strip problem from that outside vendor and had to re-program each individual card. Once it gets fully operational as intended, customers should be satisfied. Until then, consider the employees that are busting their humps to satisfy the patrons. under these conditions. Taking it out on them is like blaming your paper delivery person for having blank pages in your newspaper. To my knowledge, except for Republican leaders, no one has complained about the Obamacare fiasco, and I would think that is more important. GO FIGURE!

Ha. A few months ago a lady and her mom were in line ahead of me at the diamond card, and the daughter was complaining that she was mailed a $50.00 free play and her mom wasn't. Her argument was that they always go there together and gamble the same so her mom should have gotten one to, Unbelievable how ungrateful these full timers are. And they do carry on and everything like "NoFun" said. Some even ask you to move if your at THEIR personal machine when they arrive.

gambling is a fool's activity at best no matter who's collecting your money....but it's what the idiots of CNY want so have at it i guess. but puking your paycheck to an outside the usa gamblin' hall is just too stoopid! that 5000+ number is BS, never been verified and proves only how desperate some people are to sacrifice their identity and citizenship to a frkn foreign entity. your kids must be so proud. "daddy spins a roulette wheel, mommy shows her tits and serves cocktails while grammy cleans sh!tters....and you wonder why kids leave this hell hole upon high school graduation.(at least those with 1/2 a brai). big future here if your goals are to park cars and serve the addicts. 5000+ fkn lowlife lemmings.

Worst payout percentage imaginable. Maybe if they wised up and actually let people win once in awhile, they wouldn't have to constantly reinvent themselves or spend millions to make cosmetic changes. So many people just stopped going there because the machines were so tight.
