Night of fun for two

I like this casino because it's smoke free. It's kept pretty clean. There are a few options for food. It's not very big and overwhelming and that's what I like about it.

I have been visiting the casino every Thursday for the last several month. While their options are not as great as the bigger casino in the area, it still is a nice place. I have had a couple bad experiences though. For starters, I spend several hundred dollars a night when I go, and my free play was dropped to... More

Small casino attached to a harness track also with a hotel on site. Reminds me of Plainridge Park in Mass, The casino is small with a decent selection of slots. The employees I dealt with were very pleasant and informative. If you go get a players card for free play. Not a bad way to spend a couple hours .

It is a small slot machine only casino. Parking is either covered or open and make it easy to park close to the casino. It has a bar with weekend bands. For meals, you have the usual buffet, a snack bar and a regular restaurant in the attached hotel. Overall, its a nice small casino for a few hours of... More

Much better payoffs than its big competitor down the road. And it's nonsmoking all the way. Just lots. Points are fastly accumulated -- easy to 'earn' a meal in a couple hours play.

Smaller than its neighbor just down the road. Friendly staff, clean and laid back atmosphere. Always a good time. All the staff available to assist and they know a lot of their regular customers by name or site. Not the hustle and bustle of a bigger casino which is a nice change.

We’ve visited the 3 casinos near our summer home in central New York; Vernon Downs, Yellow Brick Road, and Turning Stone. Vernon Downs is a casino attached to a harness race track. It has video slots in the video lottery terminal class. These differ from the Class III type machines in the way winners are selected. They won’t appear different... More

This is a great alternative to Turning Stone if you are interested in just slots. The entire floor is no smoking. The slot machines are in great shape and the facility itself is clean and open. The slot selection was great and offered a lot of new games.
