We were staying in Erie to attend a wine tour event and decided to shuttle to the casino. We took canned goods to exchange for gambling cash. Also got free cash for signing up for players cards. Many of the slot machines were old and...More

We have been here several times, we don't really like to gamble, but we do enjoy watching the races and the great food they have here.

The casino floor as well as the restrooms are very clean. The cocktail floor service is very slow and the prices have gone up, one would think that the drinks would be cheaper so you would spend more at the machines. Nothing really new going...More

Typical casino with many penny slot machines. It’s a great time if you enjoy slots. No horses running on the weekends. Disappointed with that. Not overly busy for a Saturday night. You win & you loose. We visit a few times a year from Ohio.
