Not Run of the Mill

Mill Casino offers fantastic dining, accommodations and gaming

By Adam Sawyer

Two years ago, my girlfriend, Paula, and I pulled into the Mill Casino in Coos Bay, Oregon on a Tuesday afternoon. We were in the midst of a three-week whirlwind Oregon vacation. Alternating between campgrounds and the occasional stay at a roofed lodging facility, we were feeling a bit rundown, and most certainly dirty. The Mill Casino was one of the places we had targeted as a home that would no doubt provide a hot shower and anything else would be gravy.

Beautiful Bay Setting
The Mill Hotel and Casino is set right on the Coos Bay waterfront. Thanks to the fact that we were arriving on a weekday, the price was too good to pass up. I’ll be honest. I wasn’t expecting to sample their wares much beyond the bed and the shower. We hadn’t come to gamble, so I figured we would just take advantage of the chance to get clean, relax and walk along the water.

Checking in was easy and I was quite impressed with the look of the place. It’s classy without being overly opulent, with fitting tributes to the region’s First Nation heritage and culture woven throughout. The combination of modern design elements and fixtures with Native art, crafts and historical photos produced an elegantly cozy feeling.

Tower Balcony Suite

Comfortable and luxurious
When we opened the door to our room, our jaws dropped. Our room was gorgeous! The feeling from the lobby carried over into our private quarters, with the added benefit of an amazingly comfortable bed and a widescreen, high-definition television. Hot showers and a little relaxation were our first priority.

Once we were all shined up, it was time for dinner. While we had initially planned on checking out what the town of Coos Bay had to offer, Mill Casino had made such a good impression on us, between check-in and the walk to our room, we were curious about the dining options. So, we went to give the Plank House a look. Paula liked the menu and I needed little cajoling as I was starved.

Delicious on-site dining
It turned out to be a fantastic choice. I was delighted by the caliber of food offered by the Plank House, with locally sourced, seasonal offerings and classic Northwest-style cuisine. The Dungeness crab was perfectly prepared: fresh, slightly sweet, and lightly seasoned. Plank House took a legendary local ingredient and skillfully curated it to the plate.

Being full in addition to clean, we now had some pep in our steps and felt like checking out the casino floor. Paula had never played blackjack and the night was young.

An evening of blackjack
Being more familiar with gaming, I explained my code to Paula. We signed up for the excellent player rewards program, pulled out $40 specifically for gambling and set a time limit. Now I won’t tell you this is the way it’s necessarily going to go for you, but in an hour we doubled our money! Then, we left the gaming area and headed to Warehouse 101 for a nightcap. The onsite bar is the perfect place for dancing and drinks. I went to bed beaming.

RV Park

Perks we hadn’t considered
The next day we woke refreshed having enjoyed the soundest sleep of the trip and got a satisfying breakfast once more at the Plank House. Then we proceeded to do laundry. That’s right, laundry. We hadn’t even considered this before checking in, but one of the amenities offered by the Mill is a laundry center in the RV park. We were elated. When we left the Mill, not only would we be clean but our clothes would be, too. We never dreamed life could be so sweet.

Shortly thereafter, we extended the stay one more night. Thanks to the previous evening’s boon, we decided that our budget could handle another night. Plus we could spend some time checking out the town.

The next morning we packed up, checked out, and continued up the coast. All of our needs had been tended to, and even some that we didn’t know needed tending.

Worth a return trip
When we planned our trip, we chose the Mill because of location and cost. But the list of reasons why we keep coming back since our first visit has become rather extensive. When we arrived at the Mill the first time two years ago I was beat—emotionally and physically. The road is a wonderful place, but it was time for a little break. Now I know that every time I stay at the Mill I can count on a recharged battery, without fail. When you tally up great food, great service, gaming, amenities, location, price and the wonderful rooms, you get an experience greater than the sum of its parts. When Paula and I check out of the Mill, we both feel great, every time.

A Quick Guide to Craps

Casino Comments Off

If you’re looking for the Craps table here at The Mill, just listen for cheering and shouting and people having a blast…then you’ll know the dice are hot!

Craps is one of the most popular table games at The Mill Casino. Our guests enjoy the game because it is easy to learn, and pure fun. You don’t have to know everything to play. In fact, with just a little research and a few rolls of the dice, you will soon be playing like a pro!

Start by learning a few small bets and work your way up. Here are some basic things to remember:

1. Craps is played with a pair of dice; each person at the table has a chance to be the “shooter,” but you can bet whether you’re shooting or not.

2. When the Stickperson (the person who pushes you the dice with a stick) indicates it is your turn to shoot, you place your bet. Watch a few rounds and you’ll quickly see how the betting works.

3. The Stickperson will then have you choose two of five dice. Pick two dice up with the hand you use for throwing (you may only touch the dice with one hand) and hit the end of the table with both dice.

What happens from here depends on the dice.

• If you throw a 7 or 11 and you are betting on the Pass Line, you “Win.”
• If you throw a Crap (2, 3, or 12), Don’t Pass bets win and Pass Line bets are taken.
• If you throw anything other than craps, 7 or 11, then that number becomes your “point” (4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10)
• You must repeat the point before a 7 to win.
• Once the point has been established, you continue to shoot the dice until you make your point or 7 out.

All bets are made with gaming chips, purchased at the game. Some bets are made directly by each player (by setting your chips on specific areas marked on the table. Other bets are made by passing chips to your dealer or the stickperson.

You will get the hang of it as you play, and our Table Games Staff will be happy to help with any questions you have.
