No wonder MGM Grand isn't interested in you. The clientele is downright seedy. Went there once, never again. If I want to get mugged, I'll take the NYC subway.More

It's a huge casino with so many slot machines, roulette and blackjack machines. There is a racetrack as well which I haven't seen in any casino I have visited so far.

This is a racino, a racetrack with a casino. I prefer to bet on the horses before going into the casino. Its usually an all nighter. Many, many different machines to play. It's a lucky spot for me!

This place at times gets a bad wrap. The place is clean, enough machines are available with a couple of restaurants between two levels. The food court needs an overhaul and the valet parking of $15 isn't worth it unless you have points on your...More

Nice place to hangout with friends or solo. The drinks are watered down the bar food or fast food is average. If you're into gambling then this is the place for you. I got for the authmosphere.

The escalator is by the valet entrance. Also one all the way in the rear of the casino. High limit slots up there only though.
