“Go see a movie instead!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

The facility is relatively nice and very clean, but during the three visits I have made to this facility, I have never seen anyone win anything. the machines are so tight, they are really no fun. So if you are looking for "entertainment", go to a movie or the bank to mortgage your home. the experience is definitely not worth the price.

We've been to Twin River several times. The casino is always neat and clean. The food at Wicked Good is awesome. Great place to visit.

“Why would you even bother when you can go to Mohegan or Foxwoods”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

We decided to go here because it was a little closer and room rates are cheaper... What a mistake. It is like walmart of casinos, boring layout, food and environment. I felt bad payouts..but not scientific. I decided I would never take the cheap, boring route again.

“I Have Never Been More Disrespected in a Casino in my Entire Life...and I am in one 60+ Hours a Week!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

First, let me start off by saying that I usually do not write reviews; I signed up for many websites just so I could share this miserable experience.

I am what casinos would call a high roller. I am a Soar cardholder at Mohegan Sun and have a comparable rank at Foxwoods. I do not mind having a nice relaxing time dropping$2000+ at blackjack knowing that I will at least be treated with respect by the dealers, pits, and other members of the staff. I do not require any entitlement, as I feel everyone is deserving of equal treatment in an environment where most are seeking entertainment.

I also do not look the part of "high roller"; I am in my late 20s, look like he can pass for 21, and usually wear my unassuming blue jeans and wool pea coat. I also do not have many friends, so I use a tablet PC to communicate via text instead of a phone, which I carry in a green handbag no larger than a woman's purse..

I was checking out the high limit blackjack tables at 7:30 pm on 3/25/2014 when a security guard named RON who ran over to me and said, and I quote, "Kid, the hell is in the bag!?!?!" I understood that he was trying to protect the safety of the casino, but how disrespectful can you be?

I replied, "I will show you, but don't you dare use that tone with me."

Apparently, that was too much for his puny ego, as he EJECTED me for this. No apology. In fact, he and the door guard (Frank) were laughing at me as I walked back to my car. I wish I could say there were more to the story, but nope. I got thrown out for being a weird-looking "kid" with a weird green handbag. RON even made sure to demean me when I mentioned that it was no different than a puurse, suggesting I was "different"" for carrying one.

I intended to go to Twin River, drop the $5000 I came wiith, and call it a night. Instead, I am sitting in my room at Mohegan posting this review to every website just to get a point across; they fail at the ONE aspect a casino must succeed at, make the customer feel WANTED. Ron gave me a night I will not soon forget, and i will make it my mission to spread it around Mohegan, Foxwoods, ATL City, and any internet site accepting this review.

“Not a pleasant experience”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

I've been here a few times. To me, it's a very poor comparison to nearby Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun. There's nothing "welcoming" about this place. It's very easy to get lost inside because there are no signs telling you where you are or where to go. We had a ask a guard. When you arrive at the gaming halls you are overwhelmed with the smell of smoking. Being a non-smoker, I could not wait to leave.
