I've not been to the casino in a few months. A friend had told me they had lots of new slots, and they have. Only shortcoming is lack of video poker machines. Also the non-smoking section is way in the back and that seems a long distance for the seniors, especially those on walkers. Other than that, had a great... More

I felt that all this casino wanted to do was take all your money. Felt that the ODDS were too much with the house. Wanted to try the Tracks for the first time, but like they make you feel that your money was not good enough for them.

Four of us went for an evening out on a Saturday night. We ate in the Terrace Restaurant and watched a few races. We then went to the casino for an evening of playing slots. As long as you're prepared to loose and don't take it seriously, it;s a nice way to spend an occasional night out. In addition to... More

It's clean and has a non smoker Slot section.it seems a LOT cleaner than it used to be. I didn't see as many waitresses other drinks as in Vegas. While I would have appreciated a bottle of water. We had a good time while losing . Combined with an excellent dinner it was a good evenings entertainment.

We enjoyed our visit to Hollywood Casino (even though we didn't win). The grounds are beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful. Only complaint, carpet looks a bit worn in areas.

I don't play table games, but observe that many patrons seem to enjoy themand there seems to be plenty. Horse-racing Wed-Sat evenings are a family friendly activity on a spring/summer evening. Slots seem to be newer games as well as old favorites like double diamond. I enjoy my outing here many weekends. Food thoughout is very tasty and reasonably priced.

I was here the first year they opened and a few times since. On the trip last week, the whole place seemed really dark and gloomy and there was little air circulation to break up the smoke.
