Went there on a bus trip! It was snowing! We had to walk in an uncovered area to get inside. Waited 20 minutes in line to get a players card. Walked and walked to find video poker machines most of which already were being used. But when we were able you get on one it paid almost no return. Over... More

Empire Casino offers good entertainment (comedy, bands, DJs), a generous dance floor, LOTS of slot machines and several restaurants. This is in addition to the races. I love their Deli at the food court....the best sandwiches imagineable. Make a point to go when FDR is playing - great dance music. Excellent for all ages ..... A fun night out.

Empire City Casino is large, clean and fun. It has a large variety of slots, and electronic table games but no live tables. It offers players cards that you can rack up points for things like food service, valet parking and give away gifts. I prefer live table games, but this is a nice alternative when looking for a local... More

There are too many sad faces that leave Empire City as well as many angry faces. They need better payout because many of the slot machine buttons are damaged and do not work. Also, some game screens can give you double vision because of too many fist pounding by people who are very upset they are losing all their money.... More
