The horseracing options are excellent with lots of room, decent seating and fair-priced food. The OLG slots and casino area is pathetic. There's no room to hardly move, very understaffed, trying to get a drink in the place or find a bathroom or even an exit is a lesson in frustration and futility. The security is useless. I am obviously disabled, yet people, even the staff, run into you, jam by you, and act like you aren't there. Who can blame the patrons? A quarter of the machines were taken up by non players who just wanted to sit and watch what's around them. I was literally bowled over and the security man didn't even so much as ask if I was ok. And they have made every machine almost impossible to understand. Why can't they have some of the machines that use to be one quarter, one pull. NNNOOOO, even with the penny slots you have to play 36 lines at $1 each play just to have a chance at a ripoff bonus. I have been there when it was packed and never saw one big winner in the two hours I was there. You can't even get a drink of water without it costing you. Stick to horseracing, and even there you have too many tracks going at the same time, but it's way better than their pathetic casino.

I never saw a casino like this one. Everyone watch and no one plays. After u get off a machine they go play it after you give it a good run. Especially high limit.They are all watching. It's such a weird environment. I wouldn't recommend anyone going here. Not a classy casino.

Stopped in and chanced our luck. Had a great time being entertained and even walked away "up" a few Canadian dollars.
Love the layout and slot machine choices - would stop in again.

Overall this place is overcrowded with machines, tired, old looking. The bathrooms are not in good repair or clean smelling and in general this place could use a good overhaul if we were to go back.

We went simply to check it out as there was a special when you got a Winners Circle membership in December.

Woodbine shopping centre is across the road from Comfort Hotel Airport, the well stocked shops and good varied fast food outlets were a welcome close by attraction, There's also a Rainbow Cinema on site. Tim Horton coffee disappointed, I can see why "America runs on Dunkin' " lol
