The boats themselves are old. They try to update them and do a good job considering the age of the boats. Go during the morning hours if possible. The locals will dirty up the casino by the evening. As much as the staff try to keep them clean, they just can't compete with the filthy patrons. My money seems to... More

Not sure what I was expecting in Gary, Indiana but a friend decided to stay so we headed over as we were heading back to Illinois. At first check in we asked to stay on the same floor as our friend and we were told if we wait we would be able to. Upon calling around 4 we were told... More

The casino is trying very hard to become a 1st class quality casino. They are getting new games all the time. The staff is much friendlier. The comps for gifts are average. The new buffet is extremely good. A totally new venue for the buffet. I highly recommend Friday & Saturday evening. The major area that still needs a lot... More

When they have give-away, like the grill they had for the month of June. They pulled this particular name 3 of the 4 weeks. They say she is a high roller but how does her name get picked for every win. Liars cheaters. It is the nastiest casino out there. We will see what the new buffet has to offer.... More

take money and enjoy yourself at the casino. You can go to the penny machines, or play high stakes poker, its according to your disposable income and how much fun you want to have.

It's not bad at all like some reviews. If you don't smoke then go to non-smoking area. The hotel rooms are descent and all the staff (incl. shuttle bus drivers) are very friendly). I have better luck there then other places and some days I don't. That's the way gambling is....Some times you win and some times you don't. I... More

This casino needs ALOT of updating or maybe just torn down! The casino matches the area that surrounds it. Everything looks or is dirty or Smoky. The whole casino is need of cleaning & repair. I WOULD NOT go there again.

Majestic Star I and II are still very dirty and smelly. Cigarette ashes are all over the machines and coffee, drink spills make the slot area sticky. All in all, it's a disgrace. The patrons are terrible when it comes to smoking. They don't care whether or not one is a smoker. They just huff and puff until it looks... More

I visit Indiana and Illinois casinos regularly. I have the most fun at Majestic. I think Rivers and Horseshoe are more modern in terms of slot machines and layout. Hollywood and Rivers get points for no smoking. Ameristar's hotel is good. But Majestic provides better slot machine action. I am the first to admit that Majestic's buffet does not offer... More
