Great fun was had at the casino. There are a lot of slot games and even found a few that paid more than I wagered. Food services could use some enhancements but we were there over lunch mid-week so a few places were closed. Best of all, I dropped my wallet and security held it for me until i could... More

I have been going here since it was a tent outside and cups of coins and before the parking garage.It used to be called Charlestown slots which was not a chain and years and years ago changed to Hollywood Casino. Hollywood Casino is a chain. Back then payouts were more frequent. You could spend a day playing slots. The slots... More

Really used to enjoy going here to play the slots but, the place really sucks now due to the reduction in the number of slots, type of slots and the dismal payouts - they've now keep the slot pay out percentages very, very low. Guess they have to pay for all the upgrading they've done and make up for the... More

We have always enjoyed the selection of slot machines here. Spent 8 hours and did not win - never really won anything. Staff pleasant - food ok, but pricey. Disappointing visit this time.....

We had a great time, won a little, lost a lot (but that's okay) the thing that bugged me the most was the inconsiderate people that purposefully blow smoke in your face. I'd just move and I'm sure that's what they wanted me to do. :)

We went here for our anniversary trip. I read the reviews before going since we had not been in some years. There were a number of negative reviews. So we had our guard up. Well we didn't experience any of the things people were saying. Every staff person we spoke to were very helpful and pleasant. Food was good and... More

We have been coming here for several years, but with the introduction of others in the area (Live, Horseshoe), I think it is appropriate to let people know what a great place this is. This place is like family instead of institutions like the others. Great shows, fun games, great promotions and the best host staff. They really care. Our... More

We,ve been here before and it had a lot more tables this time. Still lots of slots and I had fun. We ate at their oriental restaurant which we thought was pricey, but the food was good. You can,t buy soup for one. Only for two. We thought that was odd. The service was friendly and effecient.

This was our first time to the Hollywood Casino & Race Track: STAFF - most of the staff was unfriendly. Especially some of the staff at the track in the betting area. Some staff members were standing around complaining about guests & why revenue is down. When you have to say Coke 3 times, and the reply from the food... More

This casino has a lot going on with a ton of slots and quite a few tables. The dining options are plenty with a large food court. It was not terribly busy on a Friday night which was a surprise. It does have a horse track and the races were going on so that may have drawn a crowd. The... More
