My wife had a Boss retreat for a couple of days. Casino and resort are very nice. Weather was nice. Over all it was a great stay.

Compared to other casinos this one does not give away the same perks to regulars. Since I live close I do visit weekly, I receive less perks here than I do from others I visit. I have never heard of a bonus 3.00 a week, laughable since the Morongo in California that I visit twice a year gives me 10.00.... More

Fort McDowell is so close to Fountain Hills where I live and I truly enjoy going at least once a week just for the fun of it. Several places to eat, good food reasonably priced. They always seem to have something going on that makes it worth the trip.

They took my ID, held me in a room for awhile,then showed me pictures of a girl who clearly didn't look like me, except we both had brown hair and it was in a ponytail. The main security guy was...

Perhaps I am not the most impartial person to judge the current iteration of Fort McDowell. i loved, loved LOVED the casino back in its heyday of the 90s and early 2000s. It's just an empty shell now. The old casino had such wonderful people working there. It was like a second home to me. As the years went by... More

This casino was right down the street from our hotel and the Spartan race we were participating in. Parking is close and plenty of it (we went on a Saturday night). We signed up for a players card and got $15 free dollars to play with. My husband won almost $200 on that free money. The casino was busy -... More
