  • I went to parx with some friends and I loved it. I really think of all the PA casinos I have been to it is the one that most feels like a Casino. Chester and Valley forge feel like corporate centers a...  more »

  • Just another Average Pennsylvania Casino. If you are a Smoker, it's Not Bad. Non-Smokers might be offended by the Odor of Cigarette Smoking even in the Non-Smoking Areas.

  • Horrible drink service while playing slots. Played well over 30 minutes didn't see one drink girl. When I approached one they said your not actively playing, I was, I had a ticket in my hand. They told me that doesn't count. Other servers told me I needed a black card for drinks. They need a set of rules that every person follows. I understand rules but when every server tells you something different it's annoying. Smoking policy here is also very laid back. Even in non-smoking sections they're are often people walking around with a lit cigarette or even smoking while playing the slots. Update: I went again while on vacation last week. Same situation, stood at a slot machine for a good 45 minutes before a drink lady showed up. She walked away from where I was sitting so I took out my ticket and walked up to her. She said I had to be actively playing. I showed her my ticket and said I was just sitting down and you walked away. She didn't seem to care. No drink for me, I took my money and went out and spend my money at a bar instead. Take the time and go to Atlantic City it's 10x better than Parx you don't have to hunt someone down to get a drink.
  • Warning: Parx Casino CHEATS at its own games and regularly commits FRAUD and other deceptive practices involving its table games lines of business. For example, I recall one occasion whereI had lost a few thousand and then after winning the money back, I was approached by EDWARD ELLISON a floor supervisor in the high limit room while playing blackjack. EDWARD ELLISON came across as an uneducated hack who seemed to lack even a baseline understanding of how to successfully manage a modern casino. Mr. ELLISON candidly explained that PARX no longer wanted me to play there since I was winning. Unfortunately this isn’t the first instance of fraud, player deception or otherwise manipulating the games in a way that unfairly disadvantages players at Parx Casino. Over a number of visits I’ve seen dealers who, in collusion with pit supervisors, do not pay a winning hand, instead collecting the player’s bet. I noticed one dealer routinely deal from cards off of the discard pile at a blackjack table. Intentional misdeals are common and so are instances where a manager distracts a player so that another employee can steal from the player. Here are some actions you can take if you were a victim of unlawful, fraudulent or deceptive practices at Parx Casino: Any time anything at a game goes wrong or is not done according to the rules of the game, file a complaint with the PA GAMING CONTROL BOARD. Be sure to note the names of the management involved, the time of the incident, and the table number. Tell your story and point out how PARX has engaged in a pattern of fraudulent activity at the public input hearing for the Parx Casino license renewal held every 3 years. You can register for this hearing on the PA Gaming Control Board website. Reach out to state legislators and push for more regulation and closer oversight of the PA gaming industry. File complaints with the Bureau of Consumer Protection and with the Office of the Attorney General. Contact media businesses that advertise Parx Casino and ask why they deal with this corrupt organization. Parx Casino's majority owner is Watche "Bob" Manoukian, a Lebanese national, who operates Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment which is a partner in the planned Live! Casino in Philadelphia. Act now before this corrupt organization expands any further! Check back for upcoming reviews where I will discuss more specific incidents at Parx and provide more information gained from interviews with Parx employees.
  • I used to come here somewhat often, however, I started to realize that I was never winning anything...ever; not on slots, not at tables, not at the electronic/interactive weird roulette table...nothing. At first I thought it was just me and some bad luck, but the more I started to go, the more I realized that literally no one around me was ever winning anything either. You might hear an occasional "wooo!" in the casino from someone who won, but they probably only won a max. of $50. There are never any big wins here, and from what I've noticed, there just aren't really any wins at all. Just save your money and go to Atlantic City - that is my advice. I will no longer be going to Parx. I also just want to point out that every time I did go to Parx, I noticed A LOT of cars in the parking lot with New York license plates.... I'm originally from Brooklyn so I know for a fact that Parx is a far drive from ANY part of NY. With that being said, to all of you in NY who are thinking about coming here, DON'T. You will be disappointed, most likely lose your money, did I mention how trashy and unsafe this place is? My friend happened to win (like $40) one time and he then got held up by someone with a knife. Seriously, don't waste your time coming here.
  • Poker room is completely separate from the main casino, which is great, because you are not bombarded with the cancer/smoking that they allow at the main. They serve food 24/7 that you can eat table side, and they have chargers built into pokwr tables. Comfortable seats too. Overall, a really great poker room.
  • Good selection of slots and table games. Designated nonsmoking areas still suffer from the overall smell of smoke that a casino usually has. The three interactions I had with staff were pleasant - especially the girl at the XClub counter. She knew her stuff and was genuinely kind and interested in helping me. Appeared clean throughout.
