Since Maverick Gaming purchased the casino, the service has deteriorated in many noticeable ways: The drop has almost doubled, drink prices have doubled, and most significantly the poker experience has declined a lot. This was the best card room in the state, now it is one of the worst I have experienced anywhere in the world (New Zealand, Australia, all over the U.S.).

I was asked if I would take a 4-8 seat if they started a new game and I said yes. The dealer then said they couldn't deal me in any more since I had committed to a new table. There is about a 15 minute wait for them to set up a new table, so I just left the casino). Maverick's bought most of the non-Indian casinos in the area so there are fewer options for poker now.
