I live in Harrisburg PA, not far from here.So I gamble here 3-6 times a month. The positives are it is a nice looking casino with a good steak restaurant and it's a safe place. The negatives. Not enough tables, durning the day one crap table is open, not much of a choice. $20 blackjack or even $15 blackjack is... More

This is a great surprise to my husband and I. Our daughter attends a nearby college and this is a great little trip when we come to visit.

So the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Racecourse... It is the worst casino I have ever played at - even more so than The Rivers in Pittsburgh, and THAT is saying a lot. This casino is tight. So tight that you might consider bringing in a few lumps of coal in with you - after 15 minutes in this scam... More

It's gambling people...not a bank. If you are mad because you lost, you're the one with a problem. It's rarely crowded. You can actually find penny slots you can play with one cent. There is real gambling. The slots change often, but the faves stay put. Free self serve soda. I LOVE the atmosphere. I feel safe. And I can't... More

We love making a stop at the Hollywood Casino at Penn National a few times a year when in the area for other events. Food is excellent and reasonably priced but dine early for a no wait seat!. Slots are a bit tight but if you like live Horse Racing it cannot be beat!

Take your money and go elsewhere --anywhere else. Just came home from there- no one winning, especially at the slots- even the 10 dollar slots. This place just sucks you dry. Smoke is everywhere so if you do not like smoke filled environments, do not come here. We were tempted to leave after only 15 minutes! In addition, most of... More

I'm not a huge casino fan. Their slots seem awfully tough to win. I am a horse racing fanatic however. The race track is obviously much improved from a long time ago. I would like to see them run a few more stakes races throughout the year.

Great time had at the Casino and Race Track. Didn't even lose much money. Had a great meal at the Mountainview Terrace Restaurant over looking the track. Had dinner and relaxed as we watched all the races. Great fun for a Saturday night.

Very clean! Plenty of slots and table games!! Great bar while watching live entertainment downstairs or eat upstairs while you watch the action on the casino floor!! If your feeling fancy hit the final cut steakhouse on the casino floor for the best steak around and try the lobster macaroni too!! Just unbelievable!! Also if you like the horses try... More
