We love going to Hollywood Casino, but have been very disappointed in pay-outs lately. We used to be able to go here and play for hours with less money a couple of years ago than we can now.

Went in with not exactly lots of money, but left down $200 - in only about a one hour span. Craps table was not kind to us, and we couldn't breathe due to the smokiness in the casino. Free drinks were nice, but did certainly not make up for the amount lost in gambling money which was a lot for... More

I just got back from visiting the Hollywood Casino in Grantville, PA with my wife. We traveled from our home in Stafford, VA to Harrisburg PA to go to the Great American Outdoor Show at the Farm Show Complex, and afterwards we went to the casino in Grantville. It was only a twenty mile trip from Harrisburg, but because of... More

Did pretty good on the slots, had fun with family. Played some horses too. I have eaten at the Sportsbar upstairs and the food was always good.

We decided to run down for a couple of hours on Saturday morning. We should have stayed home, the slots are very tight. Nothing like blowing 20 bucks in less than 5 minutes!!!! At least at Mohegan Sun you can play on 20 bucks for awhile. I have to agree with others the smoke hits you in many locations of... More

Nice casino, but can't help but feel like crap the next day because of all the smoking. Doesn't matter where you are in the casino, the place clearly caters to the smoking community. Obviously management is too scared to put their foot down, but it's not that difficult to have outside smoking sections.
