The ambiance is OK, but not too exciting nor classy. The machines eat your money a bit too fast and they are hard to comprehend for a non-gambler as I am. Sandwiches are extremely good, though and the shows are pretty good and most of...More

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!

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.
