Not many (if any) of you frequent this casino but just general thoughts...didn’t think to take any photos but may add a few next week. I decided to wait until Wednesday. Ho-Chunk BRF opened last Monday. Approximately 350 machines available. Some popular ones were set in a circle type layout (lightning link etc) to keep as many open as possible. Others were in their normal banks of 4 or so- only the two end ones open and 2 in between were closed. Some banks of 6 were only 2 open also. A couple banks of 3 had the standard end garbage can moved between 2 of the machines so more spacing & both end machines open. No table games, bingo, food, bar or hotel yet. No food yet. Only one bank of soda machines open inside closed snack bar. Single entry under the canopy - nice if weather is not good. All non smoking. Outside smoking area under closed entrance. Temp taken at entry. Masks required. Drop mask & look up at camera before entering. Machines displayed message on slot card holder to push service button if you wanted your machine wiped down before playing (I had taken small travel packs of wipes - should have saved but just used my own). Chairs were still at all machines so if you came with a companion they could sit by you in contrast to the Joliet report I read. That still left at least one machine spacing to next playable machine. Only saw one or two not wearing masks in proper manner (under nose). Normally mask doesn’t bother me but a couple times it did annoy me. I think I breathe harder & faster when I’m playing. I played foolishly & spent well over what I should have. Were machines tight? I would say yes, however I often have cold streaks there-and normally am just smart enough to stop before I spend too much. Was just stupid in that respect this visit because it’s been so long. Prior to shut down I actually was winning each week & paid off my car. Guess they just wanted some of that back lol. I ran into a higher level employee yesterday in town whose first question was did I feel safe. Yes, I did. They are hoping to open bar very soon. Food service a bit more of a delay, part of which is due to issues with 3rd party company that they split with. Unfortunately they did just make some of their temporary layoffs permanent (prob because they were still providing insurance which is expensive). I was surprised at seeing some both long term & short term employees working. So not sure how they decided who stayed as some long term were not called back from complaints on their FB. I wouldn’t want to visit on a weekend when it might be harder to find a machine I wanted but it was fairly easy to access a machine on a weeknight. (Some of my faves were off). I’ll go back Wednesday but stay more in control of my play & bet lower.
