We try to get to Meskwaki every couple of months for a fun getaway. The rooms are nice, always good entertainment and the slots are pretty fair compared to other casinos I've been to. I definitely prefer Meskwaki over Riverside or the Isle.

Thought we were charging our bingo on our credit card last few visits. And then started seeing $10 cash advance fees on our bank statements. They are doing cash advances on your credit cards. DIRTY!! Won't be back!
