I enjoy slot machines but traveling to Atlantic City is not an option unless it's an overnight trip for me. Parx is close and convenient. While not every gambler or guest is pleasant it's to be expected at all Casino's. You have the machine hogs and 5 cent bettors, the angry gamblers ( please stay home ) and the squatters... More

i've been an elite card holder for approximately two years, and my experience has been dramatically affected by a combination of horrible losses and a decline in free play and offers. As I read other reviews of tight machines and similar losing experiences, I see that I'm not alone. While I probably won't completely stop going to Parx, I certainly... More

You had all the intentions of planning a nice event like the Hawaiian Event on Sunday, 8/30/15, You placed a herd of people in a small room with five top tables for us to place our cocktails/snacks. People did not clean up after themselves neither did your staff.. Biggest mistake you told us we had to be present in the... More

Parx has a casino, horse track and a poker room. The poker room is very nice and pretty busy. Parx has many tournaments as well as their big stack series which has become one of the most at popular series in Pa. The casino has a bunch or restaurants that are decent , the only draw back is no hotel... More

Big place, typical slots, nice selection of food to choose from. We visited on a Wednesday evening. Not too crowded. They have self parking or valet (free).

Areas around slot machines are rarely cleaned The smoke is horrible, even in non smoking areas Slots... meh hit or miss, I never seem to win, but I always see other people winning. Chicky and petes is good, but the fancy restaurant is HORRIBLE and overpriced for a crappy "nice" restaurant. food was soooo awful.
