STAY AWAY !!!! Locals only allowed at the poker tournaments !!! I stopped by with a friend who recently moved down to that area. He told me about this nice little casino that sounded like fun. I sat down at the $1- $2 No Limit Texas Holdem poker table to see how the action was. It didnt take me long to figure out all these players are HORRIBLE!!! I was up over $4oo bucks in less than an hour and my buddy told me they have a tournament starting in about 2o mins. I personally prefer tournaments over cash, so i did what seemed like the obvious answer, signed up for the tourney. So i got up with my winnings and headed toward the cashier window, needless to say those rednecks were not to happy with me taking their money, But hey, dont play with money you cant lose right... So i sign up for the tourney, and they had 4 full tables, super small baby game if you ask me. And i proceeded to do just as well in the tourney as i was doing in the cash game. Easily had over 8oK in tourney chips and we were down to around the final 12/ 2 tables. We had a break, i stacked and counted my chips, went to the bathroom only to come back to less than 14K in chips.... THATS RIGHT, SOME HOW MAGICALLY WHEN I WALKED AWAY FROM MY CHIPS, THEY MAGICALLY DISAPPEARED. WHEN I ASKED THE DEALER WHAT HAPPENED TO MY CHIPS , SHE HAD NO IDEA. I THEN ASKED HER TO CALL THE FLOOR OVER AND SHE DID.... BUT WHAT HAPPENED NEXT BLOWS MY MIND.... THE FLOOR CAME OVER AND IMMEDIATELY ASKED ME TO LEAVE THE POKER ROOM. i ASKED HIM WHY AND HE TOLD ME I WAS BEING A DISTRACTION TO THE DEALERS, NEVER RECEIVED ANY TYPE OF WARNING AND REASONS OTHER THAN THAT. Well i didnt stop there, as soon as i left the poker room, i looked for a casino employee in a suit. Asked him to get someone from security to help me try and figure out what happened to my chips, He was very polite and professional at first, he told me he would go get someone and would be right back. The security guy came over and i explained everything to him and he told me he would be right back, After about 5 - 1o mins he came back , but not alone... He came back with 2 police officers who ever so politely gave me 2 choices : 1. Leave, 2: Get arrested.... Thankfully all those dumb rednecks on the cash table play like donks and i won more than enough to cover what i lost from that tourney, but the $15oo first prize would have been a nice way to start off a vacation. My review of this place is as follows.... If you are not from florida, or have all your teeth, or speak proper english just DONT GO THERE, BURN YOUR MONEY INSTEAD OR GO BUY A POWERBALL TICKET.
I won a gift card for either restaurant in the casino. It took me a while to get around to going as it is quite a drive from Fort Myers but My guy and I were in need of a date night so we gave it a shot. One of the only downsides to the casino especially if you are not keen on smoking is the pungent smoke smell you get as soon as you walk in and all through the restaurant. Besides the smoke the casino and grill were clean and inviting. Thank goodness I had the gift card as the prices at "ee-to-Leet-ke" Grill were quite high. We did not check the deli out though they could have been more reasonable. The gift card I had did allow us to try anything we wanted with no rules or restrictions! I had the shrimp cocktail app to start it only had 4 shrimp but they were so big I had to break them up into smaller pieces to eat! My guy had the wings which were gone before I could ask for one which means they were delicious as he is kind of picky when it comes to food. I had the surf n turf for dinner which came with a lobster tail the size of my head a small filet green beans and baked potato. My guy had the ribs which once again did not get to be sampled. The highlight of the night was the table side flambes I had the paradise and my guy the flaming cheesecake in which the chef prepared right in front of us. All in all the food was amazing and so was the service. There was a live band that had most of the patrons moving their feet and there were tons of slot machines to choose from. We tried to do a little gambling after our hearty meal with no luck, but we still left satisfied. Thanks for a great date night!
I left unhappy, feeling like I needed a purel shower, and smelling like an ashtray. I wish I could rate the 1st St Deli Restaurant separate because the food was really great, the tables were clean, and I was very happy with the dining experience... HOWEVER the casino is horrible! Smells like an ashtray because smoking is allowed everywhere and the machines suck. You can tell they are profit based and dont have their machines set up for a high win ratio just by playing and walking around looking at the machines nor do they have the typical video roulette and video black jack machines. I had to ask 3 people where the video black jack was and then some out of breath manager came over and stopped the one girl who was leading me to the cheaper video black jack machine and told me I should go to the $5 machines in an area where free cocktails are provided. So after already taking 20 min just to get to the game I wanted I just said ok and sat down thinking a server would come soon offering these free drinks. Played one machine, no server came, went to the next blackjack machine and it was broken, still no server, service person came and confirmed the screen is broken, still no server, played third machine, still no server. The whole time we were at the casino we only saw 2 servers walking around but they never made it to the area we were at. The live music wasnt bad. But Ive never gone to a casino this horrible, definitely never going back.
Casino is a Joke!! Went last night for my birthday drove from Cape, with my Wife. This was our one night out after 1 1/2 years no kids, thought it would be fun, maybe offer a birthday special like other casinos, that was a no. Then my Wife and I signed up for the player card we were told that after two hours they would match what we won or lost. After two hours of playing, and much money spent we went up, they told us we still had an hour each. So we went spent more money and about two more hours, went back and they told us we were actually lower on time and that we had about an hour and fifteen minutes still to go before we met our time limit. Horrible, how did it go backwards no idea. Worst Birthday ever thanks to Immokalee Casino, and was in the worst part of town. Could of spent that money in a much better place. The construction going on tells ya what they are doing, its a scam. Been to many Indian reservation Casinos, across the U.S., this was definitely the worst. DO NOT GO THERE!!! What a scam 5 hours and did not meet my 2 hour limit, no card games, nothing but str8 play time on the machines, and our time was lower after 4 hours than it was as two!! SCAM!! Thanks for the memory Immokalee, I will never forget it, nor will I ever do any thing but word of mouth the bad experience to everyone I know or meet in the future. Bad business!!
