Can't say I was impressed

It's a casino, times are tough. Doesn't seem to be any attention grabbers here. We stopped by for a little while before going to the theatre. It is what it is...

Just dropped in for a quick visit while waiting for an event to start. Very clean for a casino, and best of all NO SMOKING!!! I didn't win anything, but what else is new.

My mother has always loved to gamble and she really enjoys the Hollywood Casino in Aurora because she plays the poker machines and has been extremely lucky - I would say she has the midas touch. The casino is very clean and there are all kinds of slot machines, poker machines and gaming tables. There are enough machines that we... More

I like to play Texas Hold-em at Hollywood. They usually have at least one 1-2 and one 10-20 game, with more tables when it's busy. The games are friendly, and the dealers are professional and easy to get along with. Hollywood has a number of good places to eat, and entertainment on the weekends. Free parking if you have their...

Who owns this place? Who wants buisness??? REEVALUATE your door-staff and authority. I YOU have 6 parties who were turned away at 2am because YOUR staff "wants to go home"! My advice...promote to the public that you close your doors at 2a, so you don't insult FUTURE business and disrespect customers! Everyone who went to the door,I saw, was turned... More

I have been to this Casino for more than gambling. There are alot of slot machines and if you like to watch people it's a great place for that too. However I love going to see the bands in the middle of the Casino. You may have to search for a chair to sit in but there is no cover... More

If you're looking to people watch on a weekend night and live in the Aurora area, head over to the Holoywood casino! They also feature decent bands on the small stage in the midst of the casino. You may not win a lot of money, but you will have fun!

This is not Vegas and you should not expect it to be. Otherwise Hollywood is decent. I really like the smoke-free atmosphere. Many of the "local" style casinos around the country are horribly smoky and I feel sick after 15 minutes or so and leave reeking. I played only tables so I cannot comment on the fairness of the slots.... More
