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!
