Reviewed September 24, 2012

“Tight Slots”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

There are some very nice people that work at Harrah's Metropolis. But they hardly make up for the overly tight slots. And, they have so many slots crammed on this boat that you can hardly move around. It's noisy and in some part of the boat very warm. Go to have fun - don't go expecting to hit it big.

Three levels at casino, the first floor has the card tales and "high" betting machines.
Most of the machines are the same. I liked the 1cent machines but they didn't have any for the Keno.
The staff were friendly and everything was well kept and clean. The food there isn't highly priced and was great.

“Disappointed, it has changed for the worse”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We have been to this casino many many times in the past and decided to go again since its been a couple months.
They changed the layout of the casino floor again, hardly any slot machines on the first floor or third. Now, the second floor is nothing but noisy nickel machines. They have alot less slot machine they they did before, they place seemed vacant.
We also did the buffet, which has really gone down hill. I dont know what they charged 14 to 18 dollars a person and what was on the buffet, HOT DOGS, hamburgers, pizza and starches like grits and white beans. They lost the Chinese section, the clam strips and the salad bar is very small and no shrimp.
I dont think I will return, would rather drive farther to bigger casinos where the food is better and more machines.
The machines were very tight, didnt take long to loose several hundred dollars in less then 5 hours. Still even if I had won, the lack of machines and lack of decent food is enough to keep me away.

“Don't go to win...go to have fun”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

I have to agree with all the reviews about tight slots. We did win some, but not much. Layout of casino is a little odd..you have to either take the stairs or the elevator to get to other floors unlike other that have an escalator. Plenty of penny slots if that is what you like. Staff very friendly. Did not try the buffet there...did not win enough to even get a free buffet!!! Very short drive from Paducah Ky. Best part of casino is it is all non-smoking...at least what I saw. Did not stay at hotel, but looked okay..no pool?? Don't go to win...go to have fun. You are paying dearly for entertainment.
