Pretty average casino....yes its buzzing and active.....poor smoke management?:yes........I can overlook alot of little things if the slots actually paid out better-The same slots at the Sands in allentown give out free spins, and have more worthwhile payouts............As far as creature comforts;.........the restrooms sparkle.... and skip any overpriced food offering.....The Pizza place at the Casino enterance is qiute good, and a much better value.

The Hollywood Casino is very nice, clean and a good size. The payouts haven't been as
good as they were a year ago, but we have experienced the same thing at all casinos in N.J. and PA. A nice addition is the soda counter where you can go at any time and get a beverage for free (I use the term free loosely). Should be free for the amount of money going into and not out of the machines. The smoking and non-smoking areas are adequate. Smokers aren't banned to one room or miles away in the back of the casino. It is a pleasant experience, especially if you can at least break even!

The machines that get played are in the smoking section. That is where the jackpots are the highest. So nonsmokers have to endure smoke going right up their nose from the person next to them hanging their cigarette over your machine. I am so sick of this. If you ask them to move their cigarette over a bit they are very rude and say that's what you get in the smoking section. Like it or get out. They rule the casino and I can tell you some of the most downtrodden people I have seen in my life. Something has to be done about this. It is all people talk about. You have to wash everything you have on and your hair when you get home.

Wife and I went on a little weekend trip and stopped at Casino. Nice place but the smokers were out in full force. We had been to another Hollywood Casino that required smoking to be done in a separate room from casino floor. Was much more enjoyable as the ventilation was terrible. Otherwise enjoyable visit.

Not anything to exciting, but nice place for night out and have fun without traveling hours away. My husband and I enjoy making our pit stops here.
