So I've been to parx casino about 4 times now. It's aways a great time in there with great music, delicious food choices and amazing decor. It really is a fun place to be and I love the 1hr 30mins drive from Nyc. Big property with two buildings and a horse race track. Many hotel and motel nearby.

Parx is a Pennsylvania casino so of course it's much smaller than AC or Vegas style casinos, I only play the slots, I'm not a big gambler.. but I have win about $200.oo not to bad not sure if they still host their free salsa lesson (that was a lot of fun) all in all- it's worth a visit

1st let me start out with Parx does give pretty good xtra play and slot dollar amounts. And if you love waiting around for a machine and drinks this is the place for you! My problem isn't with the comp system though I get way more in AC. My problem is this- Parx sent my husband and I an offer... More

While the casino is very big and they often many options to gamble your money... The casino does not offer many free drinks, you really need to track someone down, then they ask you "which slot are you playing?" then make you sit at a machine in order for you to get a drink. They do not cover the entire... More

I am so upset with this casino. I am supposed to be a premium card holder and received the VIP invitation to pick up the Kenneth Cole Handbag yesterday 09/20/16. The invitation said pick up anytime from 8:00 am - midnight. I went around 6pm and of course they had run out of the bags. Now if you send 5,000... More

If you are a first time visitor they give you free 10.00 to play with. They stop selling alcohol at 2a but they offer free juices and water. It's a decent size one level casino and has a nonsmoking section (although smoke travels so you will still smell it). It doesn't have a nightclub in it but I got the... More

I used to love going to parx but after they took a lot of slot machines out and put more card tables in there, I can't find my favorite slots there because they eliminated/cut down on them.
