I stopped and played Shaq Jack for about 3 hours a couple weeks ago. A very interesting game in which you (along with about 20 others) bet and make blackjack play calls from an electronic screen while actually getting cards from a real dealer. All players share the same hit cards. It was good entertainment while I was there and... More

I have been a premium member of parx for years, visit at least once/week, usually more. Went yesterday spent 3-4 hours and over $1300, including winnings played back. No problem taking a loss, I've won there, too. But in their Xtra play program, they gave me a whopping... $13 (!!!). I wrote telling them that was an insult. I also... More

Extremely large nicely decorated casino but poorly run. There are smoke free zones but the smoke drifts to them from the smoking areas and the smoke eaters have never worked properly.. The free parking lots are immense. Beware of the valet parking. It's a gotcha type of deal. The more demand the higher the price. There is a snack bar,... More

I have been going to Parx for several years now. My husband and I have visited many casinos, in PA, NJ, NY and CT. Parx is one of the very best. A great well-lit atmosphere, a LOT of gaming selections, friendly people, and a really good time. Food selections are excellent, with several dining options to choose from -- from... More

Only frequent two or three times a year, and think this casino is layed out beautifully. It is a fun place and is bright and cheery with lots of machines. Never can find a waitress for a drink. The drawback is the smoke when entering which is horrendous. It smacks you in the face as soon as you walk in... More

Too loud and smoky. Shame, because it's got a really convenient location and free parking. Restaurants and hotels all over, too. Too. Smoky.

Worst casino slots on the eastern coast - steer clear of this place because the slots will swallow your cash. Very poor slots, poor management also. If your a slot player go elsewhere you stand a much better chance of winning. Disregard any of PARX advertisements mostly untrue. Hey PARX have a lucky day you truly are a real piece... More
