Enjoyed the slots. Had to wait several minutes to get a players card. Liked how the machines accepted the players card and was able to receive the free play money without a problem.

I'll start by saying that we have visited Wheeling Island on several occasions and will most likely continue to do so in he future. We usually choose to go here because we like the dog races and end up staying for awhile to play the slots and tables. The casino itself is dated, but has quite a few newer slot... More

My wife and I visited on a Monday afternoon so close parking was available and the Casino was not crowded. I wanted to play Blackjack, and there were only 2 tables running an empty $10 min and a full $5 min. I appreciated that because at many casinos all that's available is $25 min. I joined the $5 min table... More

Wheeling Casino and hotel is a Vegas style attraction in Wheeling WV. It is very well kept, clean, and friendly place for a getaway or just an evening out. There are many machines, and table games. Many people claim that the machines pay off better there, but can't really say that for myself. There are good restaurants available. The buffet... More

I enjoy visiting the different casino's around the country and "donating" towards their upkeep. It's a fun place to see and play. After, I watched the greyhound racing. Never saw it before and it was amazing how fast these dogs run plus how they make them stop running. Apparently, it's a popular passtime here since the betting area was crowded... More

This was probably my 5th time here? Went mainly for the dog track, unfortunately the rabbit broke down after 3 races and took over an hour to fix, stayed for maybe 4 more races, first time this has ever happened while I have been there though. Gambled some in the casino, nice place, had fun, really wouldn't recommend the pizza... More

I liked the casino but many of the slot machines were very dirty, actually to dirty to use. The people supposed to be cleaning worked in a group of three so only one worked at a time. I am not sure it takes three people to empty and ashtray. They do not wipe them out just empty them. I never... More
