  • My husband and I travel to a number of casinos throughout the year. This one is close to my house and is not my favorite. The slots are very tight and most nights I lose very quickly. I don't necessar...  read more »
  • i love going to listen to the bands and dancing on Friday and Saturday nights, no cost to get in. soda and water are free, so it's a very affordable night out. 
  • Having been here many times, I can only say good things about the Casino. The d├ęcor will interest many who have seen movies, and walk around seeing the props and such from them. The floor and casino a...  read more »
  • Went there today for the first time with my hubby. Never been in a casino before so just checking out the experience. Being small towners from the boonies we were NOT all that impressed. Very medicore. Yes, there are hundreds of slot matches, but they had low payouts for high bets. It felt depressing in there, for me any ways. I only found 2 games I liked, but not enough to want to go back anytime soon. Yes, we lost money and it was our choice to spend the money as such, but there was barely even the excitement of a possible big win. We came back home and went to a local bar to play slots, my hubby won back half of what we lost at Hollywood Casino within 20 minutes of being there. Unless we save up and plan out another casino trip, I think we will stick with our small town bar slots, and maybe the bar slots in the city closest to us.
  • updated review - upped from 3 to 4 stars - I had a great recent experience. After cashing out of the video roulette, I went to smoke. When I returned, I couldn't find my gaming voucher worth almost $200. I asked a manager behind a blackjack table and he called security. They took my info, checked the machine and cameras, and found I had dropped my voucher when I took my phone out of my pocket. They located the guy who picked it up and he had put it in a slot machine on the other side of the casino. They found him and got my money back. This whole thing took about 20 mins total. I've been coming here for about 2 months a couple of times a week and never have any issues. The only recommendation I would make is to have sanitizer or wipes available at any and all touchscreeen games.
  • Not a bad place at all. It is certainly a smaller Casino, could use an extra floor of games. The fact that it is a no smoking casino made it much more enjoyable. The music selection playing overhead was great and the staff seemed rather helpful when we asked them a few questions. The website needs an upgrade we were looking forward to some of the slots displayed but none were there.
  • I used to come to this place a lot as a kid after shopping with my family to eat. The food and a lot of the cool statues they had were amazing. They moved the casino inside then and I had to stop going. My mother stopped coming for a bit because of an altercation with one of the guards assuming my mom had stolen something which she didn't and it was found to be picked up by the ladies husband. We decided to give then one last chance because it brought me some great memories from my childhood and I figured it would be nostalgic. A lot of those old movie statues were removed which sort of made me sad. They remodeled which is to expected. I Had an ok time gambling though. A problem came about when I went to the bar to get a drink and it was in a small glass. This wasn't an issue until I got the same drink brought to me by a bar maid and it was in a larger glass for the same price. The thing that REALLY made me upset and probably will be the reason I may never spend another penny in there is because I was accused of taking a photo with my phone. I was away from a table, checking Facebook, and not in anyone's way. One of the guards approaches me accusing me of taking a photo to which I tell him I didn't and he asked to see my camera roll because another guard apparently saw me take a photo. I wasn't issued an apology, the guy looked at me as though I was aggressive because of me being upset for being accused, and I wasn't issued an apology upon showing him my camera roll. That is highly ridiculous, rude, and left me with a bad experience. They need to do better!!!
  • I'd rank this casino last in the Chicago area, with Rivers 1, Harrah's Joliet 2, Hollywood Joliet 3, Grand Vic 4, and this dead last. Nothing but old farts on oxygen, and rude, incompetent employees. The roulette dealers are the worst ... They always screw up the math on the payouts.
