“Don't waste your money”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

This has to be the worst paying racino in new york. It's run by the state lottery group and just sucks up your money. My wife and I made 2 visits to this place and never won a cent on any of the 20 or so machines that we played. Save your money and time.

“Almost a jackpot”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Casino is always a good place to go in bad weather - something to do. We went since it was raining out and we had fun. Won some, then lost some. The buffet restaurant is surprisingly very good and also enjoyed live music in the Vapor lounge.

“Depressing experience”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Maybe I should have gone when the horses were running. But I didn't so the casino had to stand on its own merit...which it did not. Lots of older folks apparently mesmerized by the machines. Lots of cacophony. Lots of people smoking outside the doors. What I did not see or hear lots of was people winning money. I've been in casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City and there are usually winning sounds to be heard as you walk around. Not so on my trip to this place.

“Great overnight spot”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We were traveling in our RV and wanted to stop at the Racino in Saratoga. We parked our RV in the back parking lot and spent the night right there. It was great, nice and quiet and well lite. We ate at Lucky Joe's and even won some money! Lucky Joes has good quick food and is fast and efficient. Good variety of games, but no table games. You have to pay for drinks even if you are playing on a machine.
