We enjoyed watching the horses race at the track outside on a warm, late-summer evening. Inside the casino, however, the air was so thickly filled with smoke it was difficult to breathe. We didn't stay long -- in consideration of our lungs. In the slots area, several machines weren't working. Resets were needed at a couple other machines but we... More

You can blow through money in no time there, the slots are so tight. Security follows you around and approaches you if you trip on your shoe string. They say, "You've had too much to drink, and need to leave." The second you question them, they call for, "Back up." And it just goes down hill from there. Terrible casino,... More

This is my 3rd time coming here as my brother lives near by and I like to gamble when I visit him. The casino is average, a little Smokey but nothing horrible. Blackjack is 8 decks only and dealer hits soft 17, except in high limit ($100 table). But even in high limit, they have 8 decks. They only have... More

Wow !!! My fiancé and I ventured out to Charles town to find out what the actual experience was like. We were pleased with the layout of the casino, it reminded us of the casinos in Las Vegas. The epic buffet was outstanding, we ate into our bellies are about to bust. We won at the beginning of venture but... More

The place treats you poorly and I never heard of one good word from other players I spoke to will playing. Most said they won't return.

Been there done that in Vegas several times but really prefer Charles Town. Large areas with smoking and non-smoking. Numerous table games and the slots go on forever. Have walked away with extra cash in my pocket on more than one occasion! The horse races are exciting and easily accessible from this small town. Shuttles run from several hotels for... More

This use to be my favorite casino. We thought they were closed because where we use to park the parking lot was empty. The door we use to go in was locked. The place was so dark and cold. The restroom area was freezing. I am a smoker but I noticed the next morning my purse smelled just like smoke.... More

I had a ton of fun here with my friends. I might not of one a lot of money, but it's definitely a fun place. It's a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of slots available to play. The table games are fun, but there's not a lot of range of buy in options. I prefer a lower buy in for blackjack,... More

We did not have a reservation, but we were seated right at the window overlooking the finish line. The buffet was available through all the races and you kept your table all night. Service was great, and betting windows were about 30 steps away. Of course, it is even better when you get to cash some tickets.
