When we arrived early to Wheeling, we couldn't check in to our room at the Oglebay Lodge till later in the afternoon so we went to the casino at Wheeling Island. We went straight to the players help desk where they were very kind. They called a gentleman to show us around the floor and instruct us on how to... More

Have been to the Casino frequently and the food is good and employees are friendly. I just wish they had a larger non smoking area.

Nice casino when all is open. They have all the table games and plenty of popular slot machines. From day to day it can be packed or hardly anyone on the table games. Certain games such as craps does not open until 11:00 a.m. and some days it is only half the table that is open, which is odd. Most... More

Absolutely love watching the greyhounds race. Great way to spend an afternoon. We went to watch the dogs even before it was a whole casino, and we still enjoy going. Lots of different ways to bet so it can be as cheap or expensive as you make it. The casino is nice but we lost more money quickly there.

Found this by mistake as we were forced to stop in Wheeling due to a snowstorm. Friendly casino with fairly loose slots.

had a great time at the gaming center. The rooms were excellent and very soundproof. rooms were clean and comfortable. The games offered were good and the payouts were also good. Not like some gaming centers where they squeeze every last penny from you. Breakfast was just enough and the hand made omelets were outstanding.
