Always enjoy a trip to Wheeling Island Casino! You can spend the day, have a great time, and still go home with some money in your pocket. Wish it were closer to home.

although no $ was won..had a fun day at the tracks. While walking through the casino - I do miss the sound of coins coming out of the machines. Think it made you want to give the machines a try when you would hear that instead of getting a voucher.

I go to wheeling Island 2 or 3 times a month. My wife and me always enjoy our selves. The food is good and the rooms are nice ( sometimes we stay over night). the breakfast buffet is not as big as Vegas, but it is still very good.

Nice, attractive decor. Not too smoky. A nice selection of games. An okay small casino. Just make sure to skip the buffet!

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.
