Visited racino on a saturday morning. Light crowd so it was easy to find good slots. Won $350.00 on a 50 cent bet. Staff there is always pleasant. They all really make you feel welcome. Can hardly wait for live racing. Will go to enjoy lunch in Silks restaurant & watch races. Its a great way to spend an afternoon.

If anything, parking is even easier than downtown. I only play the slot machines but I thought there were cheaper and more tables than downtown. The food was just adequate. Not as good as the pretty fabulous buffet downtown. However, if you have an urge to go gamble, this is an easy, no stress way to do it.

Took bus trip from Mansfield, it stopped in Ashland, Brunswick and Middleburg heights before going to Casino. Our trip lasted from 8 to 3:30 including drive time. Just enough gambling time to feed the slots. I found on the two occasions I have been there the machines at least give you play time for your money. One friend won quite a bit and other broke even or lost what they had planned for. Clean, wide isles and fun machines.

You can tell it's run by the same folks as the Cleveland casino. In every other casino I've been to -- Windsor, Vegas, New Orleans, Niagara Falls -- there has been a strong feeling that one is protected. At both this place and the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland, you feel you are being cased. And don't try to ask security for help. They're the rudest, most ego-riddled men ever. Go to the Hard Rock or to Windsor or Presque Isle and be safe -- while having fun!

Make sure you sign up for the Total Rewards Card - tons of benefits on line...at ThistleDown they have two bars - Slush with dancing, line dancing lessons on Monday, and over a dozen large screen TV's at the Center Bar. Make sure you stop off at the Total Rewards kiosk and swipe your card - a multitude of promotions and tier increases, along with daily promotions. The casino recently had a Valentine Day's photo booth - all FREE and the photos were sent to your email account - FREE and no selling of anything.
