“let down today”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Having been a faithful player since DAY 1 I went today to spend the afternoon playing my
favorite slots. BUT I had to leave after a few hours due to the smell in the casino and it wasn't
just from the cigarettes! Hope my comment will be read by someone who can radify this situation.
Being in this casino is my R & R :)

“Just okay”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Typical casino. A little small. Appeared slightly run-down and shabby. Lots of machines were out-of-order during my visit.

“Not Fancy”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

A decent casino--nothing fancy. Great prices on concert tickets, if your timing is right. Like most casinos, smoking is allowed indoors, which is annoying.

“Love Erie Casino...smoking permitted, YUCK!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

I love the Erie Casino, for whatever reason this Casino remains my favorite even though Cleveland has multiple options now. I rarely win, but have fun playing. I like that they have a refreshment station so you can grab a free soda without bothering a bartender or drink girl each time you would like something, this is a little perk that other casino's don't usually have. I also enjoy watching the horse races, however, the fact that the races are Sunday-Thursday now is very lame and I won't be able to make the drive from Geauga County Ohio to enjoy them anymore!! We went last night and getting home around 11PM on a work night just isn't going to work out. I hate that smoking is pretty much EVERYWHERE inside the casino. There are "no smoking" sections but when you can smell the smoke as you are walking up the hill to get to the building, you know it's going to be bad. The smell is horrendous and way too much, also some people don't seem to care about the "non smoking sections" and smoke wherever they feel is appropriate. Gross.

The casino is open 24/7 and is a typical casino. The restaurant that sells hot dogs and fast food is crap. Not like any Smith's weiner I have ever eaten. Like boiled mush. Don't eat there. The staff is very friendly. They have non smoking areas but don't let it fool you. You get less smoke but not away from smoke completely. Overall, if you have money to throw away, go and play here.
