The title of this review is the easiest way I can describe this place. First off, this is NOT A CASINO. If you're idea of gambling is looking at an electronic screen than you and my xbox playing nephew have alot in common. There's absolutely nothing "fun" about this place. The constant electronic sounds trying to pull you in and... More

Hi Greg, we have over 5,000 games with a variety of themes such as electronic roulette, baccarat, video poker, progressives, Keno and more.

First understand that this is a SLOT casino. Its clean and fun. Constant influx of new games. Also in the evening Free bowling upstairs. Fun concert in summer. Live harness racing. A little something for all. Try PINCH restaurant. Self serve beer taps at table. Filler up!

...more like a video arcade. If you like slots, it will work. The traditional table games are a joke, not at all like a real casino experience and no way to know how much the machines are playing fair or not. The service is horrendous, the restaurants are terrible, and the clientele is rough. Go the extra 1.5 hours to... More

i do not like the fact of no real table games....games are electronic...no fun or authenticity with that....only been there very few times and find the vibe a little depressing although the bar/muisc scene at times can be very lively

I went to Empire Casino in March 2015. I was doing good on a Michael Jackson slot machine. I won about $68.00 in less than 45 minutes. I had to get my ride back and my time was very limited. I won quickly and Lo and Behold my machine jammed half an hour before I was due to leave. The... More
