I visited the Sugar House with a friend to see a show in the Event Center. I thought a cold Friday night in February would be a perfect time. My first impression was there was a lot of cars in the lot but it wasn't even busy inside except the poker room. The concert venue was ok. The sound was... More

I was in town for one night going to a show near the casino so decided to check it out. This place is huge, and gorgeous from the outside. Inside, while there are some table games it is primarily slots - LOTS of slots! All denominations, the old kind, the new kind. I am a fan of 5 payline machines... More

Visited on 1/20 with my husband, we both play video poker, if you get 4 cards to a suite, you NEVER get the 5th to make a straight flush, stay away from these machines. The woman who greeted us at the entrance around noon was very friendly and answered my question with a smile, however I will not be back.

Sara Evans put on a great show, as usual. My one compaint would be that the folding chairs were too close together, virtuallly elbow to elbow.. I will be going to... More

Didn't even realize this 6 year old facility existed until I was on a country music artist's website with information she was performing there. We decided to travel about an hour and a half down from central NJ to take in the show and were pleasantly surprised with our entire experience. The Casino's location on the Delaware River between the... More
