It's not Mohegan Sun, but it works

Ok, I won at the video craps table, so may be a little biased. Friends and I had a great time. It's not Connecticut or even Atlantic City, but it's not 3 hours from home either... read more

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Empire city has finally learned if you want the people to return you must loosen the slots. The slots give out great payouts. Won a major jackpot on five treasures, 1300.00. The food has always been good. Empire city is about fifteen min drive from my house but i was going all the way to mohegan now im back.

My wife and I went back to empire casino after a year and realized we should not stay away so long. Smoke free environment, machines that paid out, ate at Dan Rooney Pub and had good food. Can't wait to go back.

Love the Tribute Thursdays and most of the live bands that play here. The comedy nights are also a bargain. Best of all are the newest slots and the new blackjack, poker and roulette games. And thankfully, no long drives to get there. The place is also really clean and smoke free.

Been there a few times. Some nights are better than others. The girls who serve drinks are very nice, but drinks are expensive. The slots are better than most places. The security is very visible which is reassuring. Promotions are good.

My husband and I love going to Empire City Casino. We love their foods and they have his favorite beer which other bars/restaurant don't offer. Their comps are great. Free food and free money to play. They also have my favorite slot machines plus it's the closest to home.

You are not going to have that question in the back of your head "Did you have fun"? Empire city is so full of fun. Especially them slot machines. But wait you get live entertainment all while playing especially on the weekends. Bring your dancing shoes and your winning attitude. Empire is a must. Food is mmmm good as well.

It is a nice casino but it only has slots. No table games. You can play table game as slots. I would go back there if I was in the area.
