The Newport Grand Casino is located about a mile from downtown Newport. It is small by most standards for a casino but there are plenty of machines and games. Food is available. When you enter, you can obtain a frequent player card for special offers. The building has two floors, a smoking and a nonsmoking floor. On the afternoon we... More

This "casino" will never be mistaken for Mohegan Sun but it's okay to pass a little time - about an hour should do it. There are a few machines I recognized but the majority were obscure and there seemed to be dozens of the type. The recognizable classics had one or two in any given location. It was raining so...

Coming from the west where gaming is more prevalent I was surprised by the limited gaming. I can certainly see why they would want to have the certain ballot initiative approved. The facility is nice and considering smoking is allowed in the casino there were not that many people actually smoking. Unfortunately we didn't win any money but enjoyed our... More

Arguably one of the saddest casinos I've ever been to. Slots only & the machines were all old. The place had an odd layout & everything felt rundown & grungy. We lasted half an hour & wished we stayed home instead. It was the lowlight of our vacation.

Food was gross! Atmosphere was depressing ! Smoke made area difficult to breathe. All and all not worth stopping. Many better choices near. Go there

First, I'm a local resident and visit here daily to kill time. The entertainment is okay on Saturdays and free! Karaoke host is rude, he no following, equipment doesn't work and sound awful. No table games. Only video poker and games. Management staff are rude and could care less about patrons. Staff are friendly. Food prices increased since being managed... More

Very blah-only about 20 cars in the parking lot. Not a very welcoming place, very hard to find anyone that works there to get information from. Dark and gloomy. I joined their "club", they gave me a card, no information with it, no idea what points mean. But I managed to waste $100 and left... Don't bother, not worth your... More

All machines will take bills $5 and up. If you expect a Vegas experience, you'll be disappointed. Most of the slots are low end knockoff versions of more popular games. Machine roulette wasn't even spinning.

First of all, I asked about getting promotions by getting a casino card. Lady said " what promotions?". Was looking for VP. All I found was in back of the restaurant, all 8 machines. Played for 1/2 hour ,was up a few bucks. Best part of this joint is the restaurant. Even the waitress there said " people come here... More

This is just an average slot parlor, wouldn't call it a casino. There are no table games and no free alcoholic beverages. Small and dark, kinda gloomy atmosphere. If you want to throw a few bucks in slot machines then it does the job. We usually visit when vacationing in Newport, something fun to do to pass the time. I... More
