I had a blast playing the slots. Lots of cool machines and even though it gets crowded on a Saturday night, don't fret, there are plenty of machines to choose from. A large section for table games and Chickie n Pete's will take care of your appetite for a bite to eat. I feel safe going by myself. The parking... More

Parx really has gotten cheap with their food and cash back comps. Considering that They don't have to comp rooms because It is not an overnight stay facility, They really are cheap with their giveaways. They give you a birthday comp that can only be used on your birthday. Caesars , for example allows you 45 days to use your... More

Smoky casino with not too good ventilation, pretty crowded with hardly enough room to move around, but gameplay is generous and has been lucky for me. Players club is generous with freeplay and benefits. Chickie and Pete's was the highlight of our visit, as their seafood, appetizers and drinks were excellent, especially when we tried the crab fries, which were... More

There is such a high concentration of cigarette smoke that your clothing, hair and body smell of cigarette smoke long after you have left the casino. I was there approximately 4 hours and never saw any one clean the top of the slot machine where who knows how many germs are being carried from machine to machine by the different... More

I would say that their slogan about "being lucky in no time" is MAINLY about the convenience of Parx being so local - along with it having a racetrack (which is the main attraction for me). Otherwise, being lucky is a stroke of luck if you win anything major at this casino. I do not really see too many happy... More
