Gambling without smoke is super.

Only machine gambling, no blackjack or craps are available. The food is a good value. It is clean and comfortable environment. Frequently it is crowded.

Really nice machines , but they don't seem to spit out hardly any money ! Gambling is all about the gamble though so can't get upset. They now sell alcohol there so that's a plus.

LOVE the fact that we can gamble and not end up smelling like smoke when we leave. Despite the fact that the machines are "technically" bingo machines, most of the machines are identical to ones in Vegas, the outcome is just determined by the bingo balls in a little 3" card in the corner of the game. You never even... More

We went there on what the casino called a road trip you got extra play money for all of the casinos that they own. We really liked the idea that it is a none smoking place, and we are not smokers so it is great that you dont go home and smell. We really would like it if more places... More

If you enjoy a decent penny machine now and then and hate the heavy smoke of most casinos, you will enjoy this place. Lots and lots of penny machines, though I've never had much success with them. But it's clean, smoke free and fun.

I had a good time at this casino. I was able to play so many class 2 slots that I had never seen before. Not to mention the fact that there was NO SMOKE. NO SMOKE. I loved it!! Hopefully Ho-Chunk Gaming Madison can serve as model to the rest of the casinos in the state. As far as the... More

Right off the interstate, this is a fun place to spend a couple of hours and drop a few bucks. No table games, only slots. Food selection is minimal. The staff is friendly, especially Brian the cashier who gave us our meager winnings when we cashed in. The place is a big improvement from when it used to be a... More

Don't go here unless you have a gambling addiction or want to smoke indoors. And now I think you aren't allowed to smoke indoors anymore either. There are no table games, the place is dry (no alcohol at all), and nobody looks like they're having any fun. How do they stay open?

We're sorry to hear about your last experience Luke. You are correct as we are the only 100% smoke-free casino in the state, however we do offer a heated/cooled structure outside for those who wish to smoke. We have some big news! As of August 11, 2016 Ho-Chunk Gaming Madison has offered a variety of beer and malt beverages. And... More
