As a native of metro Detroit I have visited all 3 of the casinos (motor city & greektown being the other 2) and by far the MGM is the cleanest, biggest and has the most variety of games from classics to new.
New slots take a bit of time to be rotated in (so if you're looking for the newest slot you played at another casino, you might not find it yet at MGM for atleast 5-7 months).
Another thing negative would be how some patrons will hog up multiple slots at once, tip a chair up for someone to return to that slot minutes or hour's later. And another trick patrons use is they decide to play one slot, while leaving a small amount of money in the slot next to them but not play it but the tactict here is "blocking " it from you to play.
I've become numb to this irritants since it seems inner city casinos have patrons do this, so it feels to be a sad "reality " on your gaming experience.
If you are not a fan of rap or club music thumping bass kicks,I highly suggest you dodge the bars since the music is beyond loud on a Friday or Saturday night. The locals flock to it like nomads and at some points block the main aisles to get into it or ratchet jawing in front of the bars entrance making one have to loop around that area which is extremely poor and sad if you have to use the facilities & have to find a further bathroom clear across the casino.
The best time is the wee hour's of the morning if you want quietness and better odds of playing your favorite slots. The food is pricey but if you're a cardholder you can get food with your points (but not the beer in the dining area or in general) and the food portions are quite large, so be prepared to get a to-go box.
Overall from the last 7-8 year's of going here but never making it past the sapphire level card, the experience here is good. Some day's the slots pay well but most recently have become as tight as a rusted bolt.
