We stayed near the area to visit Hershey Park and were surprised to find this little gem about a mile away. Very nice and well run casino from what we could see. They also offer an Epic Buffet which we enjoyed on a Sunday night.

We always have a good time here. I like the horse races and my wife plays the slot machines. They have several self serve beverage stations. The rest rooms and casino is always clean. Several places to eat.

I was playing 1-2 no limit at Hollywood Casino at Penn National on Saturday during the high hand promotion. It was the final hour of the promotion and the prize was $1000. With just a few seconds left on the clock, I tabled a straight flush, which was the highest hand of the hour. The clock on the wall was... More

I have been to several Hollywood's casino's and this one is one of the best! They have a variety of games and entertainment for everyone! From the old to the new games you will find it there. If gaming is not your thing, there are plenty of restaurants with numerous food choices for you too!

We enjoyed our visit to the casino and race track. We would come back again. It's clean bright and fun. Easy to access from the highway. Lots of parking spots.

My husband and I rarely go out....our kids were away with family this weekend so we planned a date night at Hollywood Casino. Overall a fun evening, lots of different slots to choose from. Very disappointed the slots are still so tight. I think one machine I won $10 at the most. Probably wouldn't go here often....unless we could afford... More

Don't bother going unless you like mussels. No crab legs and only 30-40 count shrimp. Mid price typical breaded shrimp and standard breaded clam strips. Buffet consisted of lots of low price "filler foods", not exactly sure what they thought was worth $28. Live and learn, not worth going back a second time for that price!

My family and friends enjoy the evening. We go to Mountain Terrace Restaurant or watch the races outside and bet on the horse races. It is easy to win. After the horse races are over, we play the slots for an hour. We like to finish up with ice cream at Glitterti's! So much fun! Kids would love the horse... More
