I have been here for many events. A short list is slots, sportsman show, everything about sex show, beer & BBQ, little rays reptiles and even a cattle auction I walked into by accident. I'm sure I'm missing many more and I have been to the fair a few times and lost $40 in the slot machines. I may have... More

I ve had alot of nice wins there, I won three grand on the penny slots and always double my money playing the penny slots, i really like it. my only complaint is they let seniors tie up the machines, they will tie their member cards key chain around a chair and go away to the bathroom.

give yourself an hour to find parking on a friday or saturday night. Its nuts in the parking lot especially if there is an activity in the Sportsplex the same night. If you can take a bus or taxi do it.

I rarely go to the slots and/or horse races, but Western Raceway is an institution in southern Ontario. Winter time betting is more indoors and the place is filled with your "experts"; I prefer to lay down my $2.00 bet and go outside and watch the horses. There are ample instructions on how to bet and the tellers/cashiers are very... More

The races on Friday night with a buffet is one of the best meals in London ... the food at the casino part is not the best .. more along the line of fast food. Tonnes of parking at every time except during the Western Fair...

I am not a fan of slot machines in general and find this casino a little depressing as it is basically a lot of retired people losing all their money in the slots. There is blackjack in one corner but it is a machine! No live dealer! The food at all of the events I have been to recently is... More

I visit the raceway slots a couple times a month. Generally if you go in the morning is is lightly populated. During Fri and the weekend evening hours it can get quite busy. The washrooms are clean, staff pleasant, and generally a good time.

I went on Friday night as part of a package: Horse racing, dinner, YukYuks and playing the slots. We were a group of 8 girls and it was so much fun!! I was impressed with the buffett dinner. There was so much selection and it was all good: several salads, fruit/cheese, full turkey dinner, roast beef, fish, pasta bar, veggies,... More
