The master plan for the facility includes amenities such as an entertainment venue, RV Park and strip mall in the future. You don;t go to LA expecting anything fancy or luxurious. The next phase of the project will be to expand the gaming area and restaurant the floor plan was designed with a removable wall to open up extra space and add meeting facilities in the main building.
When it looked like the Jena Choctaw Pines Casino would not be ready by its target opening date, staff bunkered down and put in extra effort, working plus hour weeks to make sure the facility was finished on time.
We had a bogo and the meal was great. Outcome The cigarette smoke buildup at the roof deck has been eliminated. On Tuesday at noon, a media event was held at noon with representatives from the media throughout the area given an opportunity to visit the casino.
The tribe was officially recognized by the federal government inopening the way to begin planning for the casino. The Jena Band of Choctaw Indians, the smallest federally recognized tribe in the United States, waited more than 15 years to see their dream of a tribe-owned casino come to life.
You go with money budgeted for entertainment that you can afford to lose.
Clean, but nothing fancy. Went on an anniversary road trip. They don;t build these places on winners. We always make a trip to the LA casinos on this occasion. The food was horrible. The benefits of the casino, Smith pointed out, include jobs for area residents and aid for the tribe. A previous attempt by the Jena Band of Choctaws to locate a casino near Logansport failed when the state would not sign off on a gaming compact.
This restaurant has a full bar with plus seats for all sports viewing pleasure, with five large screen televisions, and a selected menu including inhouse pizza. If you happen to leave with a couple extra bucks, then that's a bonus.
I can't even think of anything good to say about any of it. Even the casinos that are billed as being luxurious in LA are nothing like Vegas, so don't complain about the trailer park atmosphere and "tight games" because that is all there is in LA. Scott knew that replacing the existing glass tubes would not solve this issue completely.
The server was very nice, which is why I didn't give it a terrible rating, just poor. No taste at all, I don't even think anything I ordered had even a pinch of salt. To mitigate some of the effects, Scott installed an exhaust system at the roof deck to remove the cigarette smoke and prevent buildup. Casino patrons can take advantage of all that is offered at the casino by joining the Arrow Head Players Club which offers opportunities to earn reward points for extended complimentary play on gaming devices, Jena Cash, and exclusive promotions, tournaments and events.
It's not Las Vegas. That night, an open house was held for officials from a three-parish area LaSalle, Grant and Rapides which the Jena Band of Choctaws feel is their home area. They are not with us in body, but I can feel their spirits with me.
Casino staff have remarked how they do not smell of smoke when they get home after their shift. They really need to work on their recipes. That's pretty typical of LA casinos.
However, as the glass tubes began to age, the smoke would build up in the open structure until the supply diffuser could capture the smoke and push the smoke down to the gaming floor. There are a lot of people who worked on this project who are no longer with us.
Buildup of dust on gaming machines has reduced to allow better use of staff. Also, additional smoke-removal systems would be very costly and disruptive to the game floor.
The casino is fully staffed with approximately employees, Neumann said, not including another 50 or so contract workers. The gaming machines have similar themes and play styles to the slot machines found in Class III casinos, but are run on a different system.
