“Great casino”

Went to the Horshoe for the first time a couple days ago. I found it to be better than the Ameristar that I usually got to. My only complaint was this. I took the free shuttle from Wacker Drive to the casino. When I signed up for their rewards card I saw a sign that said free buffet for new or inactive members who play for more than 30 minutes. When I signed up I was told that it did not apply to me since I used the shuttle. I was reallly turned off by this and it will effect my decision when I choose my next visit to a casino while in Chicago.

The previous post is correct on many points. However I wanted to point out the casino is undergoing a $700 million renovation in the next year. It will be enlarged to 3 times its existing size with a 2800 seat theatre for boxing and other events. Shadow Bar from Las Vegas is opening a club and many restaurants will also be added. Because it is the closest casino from Chicago , the Loop is 20 minutes, it is always busy.
The steak restaurant is actually good and it won the Award of Excellence in Wine Spectator magazine. The view of the Chicago skyline is also nice.
As for the area, the casino sits in the industrial part of north Hammond, next to the Hammond Marina which is the largest marina on Lake Michigan. Lots of cheap gas and cigarettes stands, but the area is safe and is also in the beginning stages of renovation.
There is a great golf course one mile south called Lost Marsh. It is a links course and is challenging. There are also some good restaurants in Hammond and beautiful houses in the southern part of the city. The town of Whiting is just down the street, east of the casino and has a cute town center and some good restaurants. It is also home to Pierogi Fest, a huge outdoor festival at the end of July.

Here are the pros and cons:

Pros:
Close location to Chicago - easy access right off the Skyway.
Restaurants inside are nice - good food - ok prices
Single zero roulette wheel - the only casino around here to have one! The house edge is cut in half over reg 0/00 wheels.

Cons:
Very cramped casino. Aisles are small.
Very crowded at all times (even "off peak" times).
High limit tables. Cheapest blackjack table was $15 and tough to find a spot. All other tables were $25+
Long walk from parking garage to casino.
Scary neighborhood.
