The Parx Casino is one and one half hours from where we live on Staten Island. It is closer than going to Atlantic City so it was a doable day trip. It was nice to have the free parking on the premises as opposed to having to pay for parking in many of the Atlantic City hotels. The casino was... More

I went here for a birthday celebration with my friends. We played at the roulette machines. I had my cell phone on the machine. There was a gentleman next to me, on the side where my phone was placed. I turned for a brief moment to talk with my friends, the next I turn around and my phone is gone.... More

Let's get one thing straight: Pennsylvania is not Nevada. Parx is not the Bellagio. Parx is the place for folks like me who need their gambling fix after work and are not going to fly cross-country to get it. That said, you come here to gamble and it is just fine for doing that. In fact, as far as gambling... More

By placing Roulette and Blackjack as 'slot machines'... Parx is able to lower it slot percentage rate even lower than the already low 85% PA minimum. My educated guess is the the slot payout is somewhere in the 70 - 75 percentage range maybe even lower. The odds are HORRIBLE. Go to AC at least your odds are way way... More

I thought that Parx would be just another small casino but was pleasantly surprised! A little surprised they have smoking sections but the slots were plentiful and even though the casino was bustling I didn't feel crowded and there was no waiting in line to cash out. Overall a great day trip and Chickie and Pete's restaurant right there inside... More

Parx should base the point system on customer loyalty in spending and how often the customer plays on a weekly basis. Some people who were loyal, including myself, will not be playing there as much. Parx does not take care of most loyal players. The monthy comp is nothing to play with. I played a lot of money over the... More
