Had a wonderful Shania Twain/Tim McGraw tribute concert. The gaming area was clean and employees were friendly and efficient.

A great place to go after a day of golf. The dog races are fun and the casino is big enough to get lost from 7 other guys! Friendly staff.

All I can talk about is the dog races. I went there not expecting much but was very nice. Very important that it not bej around smoking and in was not forced to be.

It's an OK place to go. When arriving, do your best to forget that you were forced to drive through a few blocks of some pretty scary looking slums. I'm sure the casino management doesn't like it any more than any else does. The casino itself is very smoky. I've been to Vegas many times and unless you're sitting right... More

It is in a good location near Wheeling, and not far off of Rt. 70 it is a good place to spend a little time and of course money like other casinos it could be a little more generous with payouts

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
