Went here yesterday after not going here for about a year. I was quickly reminded why I stopped going. Slots do not pay out nothing. Went in with a relative with a few hundred dollars each and we were both broke in just a few minutes. First time in my 20 plus years of playing slots that I got 0... More

Mardi Gras Casino is not one of the largest casinos in South Florida, but it is not the smallest either. Formerly known as the Hollywood Dog Track, this place became a casino just like many other horse and dog tracks as soon as gambling rules were loosened. I wonder if they discontinued dog racing when the casino opened, as I... More

I feel comfortable in this small casino.The food is good at the French Quarter. The greyhounds also run on certain days, which is a plus. They have live music available on certain nights and also concerts. Nice place to spend an evening.

I loved this place the first time I went. It has that old Vegas style casino feel to me. It has its problems like everywhere does but all in all I would come here other then the other casinos in the area. I have gone to gulfstream and lost every time. I have gone to classic and gotten lung disease... More

I discovered Mardi Gras after having disappointing times at another local Florida casino. On your first visit you play a little video game to win free play. The slot machines were plentiful and I won enough to play all night and go home with money! There was an Elvis impersonator singing the night I was there and everyone was dancing... More

My husband really liked this place because they had a lot of .5 video poker choices. He's not a big spender, but enjoys his video poker. He would have given 5 stars. For me , it was kind of dark etc and the machines were kind of old., but I did do well there. I'm also not a big spender,... More

Took in the dog races then went to the fish and chip plus prime rib buffet on a Friday night. Both were excellent and surprised you could get both on one buffet. Lots of selection to make salad and was very good evening out as well.

Fun Fun Fun did I mention Fun. See a show or listen and dance to a live band then have a little sport - one armed bandits or sit down at a table and loose it like a man and sometimes maybe win.

Mostly slots and poker.The track runs two race cards a day it seemed. You have to bet $5 on... More

We were disappointed. The place is a bit sketchy and grandstand was boring. Minimum bet is $5 for place bets which is too much for me. Food was concession stand quality. Many of the patrons in the dog track area seemed sketchy to me. While I didn't feel unsafe it had a weird vibe about it and just didn't enjoy... More
