With the recent economic downturn in the gaming industry in Mississippi, particularly in Tunica with the closure of Harrahs, one might think with one less casino to compete with that Sams Town Hotel & Casino would rise to the occasion to capitalize on attracting traffic. However, instead they push patrons in the opposite direction by closing their Poker Room, despite still not taking down their Poker Room signage 8 months later, as well as minimizing staff that serve you and cleaning staff that maintain casino cleanliness standards. Slot machines with cigarette ashes on them, empty beer bottles left discarded around them, and only one change machine on the upper floor for over 250 machines makes for a very inconvenient and disgusting environment in which to gamble. With 7 to 8 other casinos in Tunica to choose from, Sams needs to realize their housekeeping standards should be at least comparable, but instead is seriously deficient.
Promotions are also very misleading like their Friday night slot tournament, where you are required to use your own dollars to acquire as many slot points in a given time to be designated the winner of free slot play. The biggest spender automatically wins which takes away any regular slot players advantage. Not well explained until I asked Players Desk staff, only to be told I needed to spend a lot to win a little--Didn't make sense to me.
Buffet is very tired with same old boring items available--nothing new or fresh. Went to Goldstrike where there is a newly renovated buffet with endless variety for all tastes.
Next time well try the Goldstrike or the Horseshoe where there is still a Poker Room, where the casinos are well maintained and the buffets are edible.
