Left my money behind but enjoyed the late evening immensely. Didn't arrive until 11 pm but the place was still packed. Loved that we could enjoy a cigar as the entire facility is smoker friendly. That said you don't smell the smoke walking through the casino. It is well managed and you only know anyone is smoking if you happen... More

We spend approximately 6 months in Michigan and the other 6 in Florida. Greektown Casino is easy to get to and is a good form of entertainment and visited very often while in Michigan. We are slot players and do set a spending and time limit, which is good. Sometimes walk out a winner and sometimes a looser or a... More

When I first visited here I thought this was a pretty good casino - down-to-earth, if smoky. Well, it's still smoky, maybe even more so. Last time I found lots of penny slots with low minimums. This time, not so many. The non-smoking room is very small and was always crowded when I went by to get some fresh(er) air.... More

My mom and I went to the casino yesterday intending to play slots in the non-smoking area. First off, mom is elderly and has to move slowly with frequent rest stops. The elevator to the third floor with the non-smoking rooms was not easily accessible and we had to navigate through an area thick with smokers. Long wait for the... More

We arrived for a little night life fun. We signed up for rewards cards, and were directed to a kiosk for first time rewards members. I instantly won $10 free play, my husband won a "mystery gift" which was a neck massager, and my aunt won $5 free play. There's a huge variety of games/machines. Free carbonated drinks, coffee, and... More

This casino is just gross. It stinks like urine and stale cigarettes. Considering that I smoke, and noticed it.....I can only imagine what non smokers smell when they walk in here. The slots are super tight, and the employees are rude. Encountered ONE friendly employee, a bartender. Couldn't get a drink in the slots if my life depended on it,... More

Why is this tough to review? It's a casino! I've been to Vegas, Paris, Canary Islands and Carribean Island casinos. this one IS a bit different in that they've managed to remove the serious stark-faced don't make trouble attitude that casinos have. One dealer we had was really fun, while the pit bosses all looked like they were on vacation!... More

We visited the Greektown Casino prior to attending a Tiger's Baseball game. The place is dirty. The customer service atrocious and downright rude. If you have any type of problem w/your machine, don't expect immediate service. In fact, don't expect service at all. We waited over 45 minutes for an attendant to release a jammed pay slip. One attendant rudely... More
