Hello, we appreciate your concerns about our issues Monday morning. Unfortunately, many guests experienced delays cashing out at their slot machine. Due to an unexpected, temporary technical issue, we were forced to hand pay from the cashier cage everyone that wanted to cash out any dollar amount. Obviously, this is a much slower process than printing a ticket at the... More

Three hours with a "technical Difficulity" no communication to guests, 400 dollars gone each for my husband and I and nothing on website and not telling any guests of the issues other then Technical Difficulties. Horrible.

My house guest is from the West Coast and has gambled in California, Nevada, Mississippi and Oklahoma in addition to Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. We decided to give Parx a try. Physically, Parx is appealing. Big, clean, new. We went to the desk to register and get our player's cards which contained $10 in free slot play. Then, I... More

We live in Central Jersey so we thought what the heck. Never again. Staff was pleasant and place was tidy for the most part but dear Lord the people. I thought AC was a little trashy but Parx has them beat.

So good to see Jim McCain back from surgery at Jax Bar. If you've never had a chance to meet him drop by any Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday. Best bar host in Bensalem.

Even though we loss our money we still had a great time. The good thing about parx is that it was only six miles away from our room so we were able to return the following day and win some of our money back, overall great place.

Always great service and courteous employees every time I go. I go twice a week to the point where valet has learned my name (chuckles) and they take very good care of your cars.

It's clean, nice. The array of food is good. Free drinks for players. The slots are eh, not loose not stingy. It's something to do. If you like slots there are plenty of types. Not overly crowded.

I always have fun playing the slots but your money goes fast if you don't win! There are a lot of table games and so many slot machines! The floor drinks are weak but they are free. Plenty of parking!
