The layout of the casino is very nice, the restrooms are beautiful and clean, the food court is typical, just ok. The slots are very tight, I have only managed to win 40 bucks on penny machines, and 70 bucks on video poker, and those wins were few and far between, so I don't play the slots here any longer,...

It didn't have the feel of an Atlantic City casino. It was okay. We gambled for the fun of it, didn't really understand some of the slot machines and what to you have to get in order to win. I didn't like the computerized black jack tables , roulette tables. It is convenient to get there, and the Italian restaurant... More

If you like slots then you'll find the trip a semi enjoyable time. Personally, I found there not to be much variety and it's quite dark. It has hints of Foxwoods but it's no Mohegan Sun. There are ample food choices, this is true, but nothing earth shattering or even memorable. We did win, but there was nothing keeping us... More

Empire City Casino is an excellent alternative to traveling long distances to the 'big' legacy casinos in the tri-state area. True, they do not have live table games, but it seems that the electronic roulette and Baccarat is making up for it and people are getting used to it. They seem popular. It may hold sway until the laws change... More

Maybe if I went back with a big group of people or enjoyed playing slots it would be better. Only "casino" I've ever been to. The grounds were nice.
