Like so many casinos, Northwoods seems to have turned into a 'penny slot' haven. It sounds good, but don't let that fool you! Some 'penny slots' take a dollar a hit! As you can tell, we aren't high rollers. We'll each take $20 and play till it's gone, then leave. At some casinos, it can take us 2-3 hours to lose that much! Our first time at Northwoods, we didn't make it an hour. We did go back once, and we came out ahead by a few bucks. Our biggest complaint is the smoke smell. The first time, we weren't there very long, so it wasn't as noticeable as the second time. For that reason alone, we wouldn't go back. Casinos need to realize not everyone enjoys that smell!
