“Fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Nothing too special about the Casino. Pretty much like any other, except way better than the Belle Casino. It had many more options for slot machines and game tables.

“Poor paybacks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

The place is hard to get to - I mean a lot of walking from parking area which has no security. the machines are poor in playing back and too many vedio types that cost high to play, not for a fun outting to say the least.

“Poor playback”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

This place just doesn't care about you winning anything and is not concerned about if you come back again, the machines take-take-take. very poor on returns -they can have it.

“Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

It's old, it's smokey but fun. Located near the old capital, the Hollywood Casino appears to be getting a little worn. Free valet, nice buffet for the money and fun in the casino. The casino itself is small and older but people seem to be having fun. Area seems safe in the parking lot. Love the view from the buffet seating. That itself is worth a visit. Maybe the best view in the city. Great place to spend a couple hours.

“EPIC BUFFET..anything but.........”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

visited on Mothers Day @approx 6pm, had assumed that regular price applied since it was after the usual buffet/brunch time...NO PRICE SIGNS WERE POSTED....the price was doubled $32.00 per person. nothing on that buffet could command that price..no special seafood/steak or desert. the service, with the exception of our bus person, was less than speedy. WILL NOT go back-unless you're starving & have lots to spend-DO NOT GO...
