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

This place is gross. Found a pretty good parking spot, but then we had to walk forever down a dirty hallway just to find the boats. Walking onto the boats, we were greeted with overwhelming smoke (coming from two smokers) on top of some sort of air freshener that almost made me sick. They make you think it's a nice... More

What a dump! Dark, dreary and dirty all in one! Staff is more interested in standing around talking to each other than the guests! Stay away!

When I initially started going to riverboats instead of Vegas to gamble back in the mid to late 90's, my 3 favorite riverboats were the Majestic Star, the Trump (now Majestic II) and the Empress (now Horseshoe). The Majestic was always bright and exciting. A Friday or Saturday night at the Majestic Star was well worth looking forward to, win... More

Was a downer, two old boats. Looks cramped. Tables had average minimums for the area, no discounted minimums for the shabby area/ location.

If it was not for the good gaming I would not go at all. It is the shabbiest nastiest casino in the area. The buffet is also the worst. On the other hand the gaming is pretty decent, they a lot of cash give-a-ways. There is always something going on. So if you are looking for good gaming not ambience... More
