I am a loyal player of the Penn National Gaming property (Hollywood Casino Joliet) and occasionally will drive and play in East Chicago. Their app showed I would have 40 dollars of Free slot play that oils expire at midnight of July 1 and 50 diollars of frees silt play that began the morning of July 1 - July 3rd. I had just earned over 350 points (10 dollars play on video poker = 1 point) on Sunday and lost 1,100 dollars so I was looking forward to recouping my losses with the advantage of the promised free slot play shown on their app. Long story short they TOOK AWAY ALL MY FREE SLOT PLAY OFFERS! That they put i in p on their app. In other words AMERISTAR DID NOT KEEP ITS WORD! When I inquired about this casino host Emily Did a great job of looking into it and professionally getting back to me in a timely manner. The marketing department felt I had not played enough to warrant receiving any offers and RETRACTED the offers they had made. How does losing 1,100 dollars the week before not qualify for ANY Offers? Reasons not to go to Ameristar Casino 1. Not many video poker machines 2. Poor video poker pay tables 3. It’s extremely smoky 4. You have to wait in line to have your license scanned when you enter. 5. Construction and traffic on interstate 80-94 when you cross the Illinois-Indiana border 6. Construction on Cline avenue 7. Their Marketing department doesn’t HONOR its word. 8. I feel that Their marketing department only values you if you lose based on the retraction of all my free slot play offers. I personally will do 90 percent of my gambling I. Joliet (Hollywood Casino has OUTSTANDING EMPLOYEES who will make you feel valued!! Or Harrahs Joliet where I have had good video poker fortune) or Hard Rock Casino on exit 6 (Burr avenue) in Indiana.

The service over the phone was insanely terrible, along with their policies. We told the hotel that our fight was getting in late at night. They responded that they may not be able to hold onto our room...that we had already paid for and booked! The rooms themselves are big and look great. Charles at the front desk was cordial and great. The casino portion wasn’t really my cup of tea.

First time ever visiting this casino. The hotel was wonderful. It was very clean and spacious I would recommend and stay here again. I however do not know if I will gamble my next trip. These are the tightest slots I have ever seen. We also were told the restaurants in the casino were open until 3:00 am. We went to get something to eat at 9:30 pm and the waitress told us they were closing.

This is a Casino you can win at! Barstool Sportsbook restaurant is good for food and drinks! Open 24 hrs., and a lot of foot traffic at tables and slots. Also has newer and some of the older slot machine you love.
