“Mini-Casino...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Tioga Downs Casino is a tiny casino off interstate 86 (aka 17) in Nichols, NY, that offers slot machines (no tables, only four video roulette ones) and harness horseracing in the summer and periodically entertainment like old has-beens i.e. Randy Travis, The Oak Ridge Boys, etc. Obviously, it is not Vegas or even Mohegan Sun but it is a fun entertaining time to be had...by most. It has a couple of bar areas one inside and one outside of the casino and a buffet restaurant along with a Subway. They do have valet parking but charge for this service and it is free for the handicapped drivers. They do offer a free shuttle service from the parking lot or it is a short walk up a small incline to the Casino entrance.

Whether you win or lose (unless it's a bundle) , it's always fun to go to Tioga Downs and the bar 'Wings' are fantastic!!!

“Disappointing unless there's a horse race!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

I've been here a few times. If there's not a horse race going on (seasonal), then the only thing this place has to offer is slot machines. The buffet is good, but expensive.
