Went to have fun, hoping but not expecting to win. Therefore once we had played for a few hours and lost our limits, we were ok with the result. Place was fairly clean. Non smoking area was ok.

The payouts are so low on all their slots. You will go through your money so quickly in a short amount of time. I’ve gone several times, different times of the day, different machines, and the same result every time. I don’t expect to win,...More

Was in town visiting Hersheypark and saw that this casino was relatively close to the Hershey Pennsylvania area. I was a little skeptical about the size of the casino seeing it was located at a racetrack; but to my surprise – it was great! I've...More
