How can you not when you hit a big jackpot paid for my trip plus the trip we plan for next year. This is one of the least smokey PA Casinos I have been in Lots of non smoking slots.

My husband and I visited Erie August 21st to 25th. We went to the casino each day. If you walk in the main doors you don't smell the smoke. If you walk in the side door into the smoking area then you will smell the smoke but as soon as you get into the non-smoking section it is like a... More

We've been to Vegas, Atlantic city, salamanca.... and by far this was the worst experience we've ever encountered as far as a casino is concerned. Me and my wife both agreed that just the buffet itself was very low grade..it kinda reminded me of a high school cafeteria. Whatever happened to drinks on the house when you are gambling because...

We had a good meal in the clubhouse overlooking the racetrack. Great view. Then we spent a couple of hours in the casino. Fun evening

If you are in the mood for gambling head elsewhere. Casino atmosphere is small and unhappy. Dealers do not make you feel welcomed, to the point of rudeness. Drinks are all ice and overpriced. The shuttle drivers were even cranky. Tightest slots ever and tables are not entertaining. Dealer told us they are not allowed to be loud or get... More

Easy parking. Very smoky inside. Food was fair. Drinks are watered down. Not a good Long Island Iced Tea at all.

I wonder at what point casinos will realize that the majority of people no longer smoke? Even in the "non-smoking" areas you could smell cigarette smoke. This made for an unpleasant experience. I played the slots, lost $100 in about 20 minutes. Once I noticed the blackjack table had a few seats open I moved over there. I made my... More

I have visited this casino several times over the past few months. If you have trouble walking, they have FREE wheelchairs available. They ALSO have a FREE self serve beverage bar right in the middle of the casino floor that you can help yourself to coffee or soda products anytime. Bathrooms are plentiful and well marked. Friendly staff. Parking lot... More
