Stopped after visiting the track next door

Nice and clean casino. Lots of machines. Crowded during race season when track is open but worth the trip if you don't want to go all the way to Turning Stone.

Clean, comfortable hotel rooms with free continental breakfast. Connected to the casino through indoor walkway. Moderately priced room rates.

This casino is small and very easy to navigate. Played a bit. Won some, lost some, overall had a great time. Wentbon a Wednesday and enjoyed all the senior day benefits. Will certainly go back.

Tired of the smoke and unpaying slots of TS we decided to break away to this Racino for a change. What a pleasant surprise. . The slots were new and everyone there was smiling. It was so nice to smell smoke free and still enjoy the atmosphere. Very tempted to gamble here and use TS for their fabulous restaurants and... More

If you are just looking for something to do, then this is an OK casino. No table games, just slots. They do have harness racing in season, or simulcast all the time. Buffet is not worth the price (even tho it's super cheap). Drink prices too high.

This weekend we so persistent on staying a second night. We refused to book else where. We called on the hour every hour to... More

The casino is small, though it wasn't crowded when we were there. A plus is that it is entirely smoke-free. We enjoyed relaxing in the lounge, where the soda & popcorn are free.

We stopped at this casino while visiting the Syracuse area. We enjoy casinos. Very nice casino. Clean. Enjoyed playing the slots. Lots of penny slots available. Lot of the games we used to have in our local casino. Snow globes, rawhide. We hadnt been here in a few years. Able to use same card as Tioga Downs (sister casinos).

We have never stayed at the hotel, but have gone to play slots at the casino many times. Pay-out varies. Some days good, some not so good. Don't eat at the buffet in the casino. It's pretty awful. We would come more often to this casino if it had a decent buffet like other casinos have. At least smoking is... More
