  • If you don't like the long drive to bigger casinos then go for a visit and play here. The games are fun, but honestly I can't say that we have really won much here, I think to win you have to play hig...  read more »
  • I have eaten here several times. Most recently, it was not a good experience. Slow service an average food. I have had some very good meals here but it seems like chefs change pretty often so variety ...  read more »
  • This place reeks of smoke as soon as you walk through the front door. It is nice enough on the inside with modern slot machines. A drink is six bucks but cokes are free. Servers are few and far betwee...  read more »
  • This is a casino that they don't call a casino because gambling is illegal. They are like slots only each time you hit the button up in the corner a video plays a few second horse race. There are different kinds of games but the payoffs are ridiculous!! It will flash it's a big win for 4.00! Staff seems nice and helpful. It would be a fun place to go except it is very hard to win. Not even enough to keep you playing a while. They need a bigger variety. The bingo hall is okay but the floor moves every time someone walks. It bounces. The horse racing part can be fun if you like that. The grounds are well kept and parking is fine.
  • No one seemed happy to be there? All the games are alike... I honestly don't know the appeal of KY Downs?? I laughed uncontrollably...walked around and the looks on their faces said it all....lolol... it's to HORRIBLE for words......Billboards are absurdly misleading!!! Vegas style gambling??? Yea right! No one wins anything??? Quiet as a morgue... u just get a bad vibe ??? They should focus more on off track horse betting ...add some big screens anything...anything to make it more appealing... They got me for $60...this casino is fleecing the town it's in... it's sad..very sad... negative 1000 stars... absolutely!
  • First time coming here, and had a blast for the most part. I don't do slots, I just came for the racing. This track is nothing like anything else. The shape and the hills make this place difficult to handycap. I got the finish line tickets. The staff was friendly, though not very knowledgeable. One woman didn't even know what a paddok was. The food was great despite it being complementary. Drinks prices were on par, but the bartender did a fantastic job. The tent was evidently sold out and sadly, I very rarely found a place to sit while I was in there. Smoking was surprisingly minimal, even though it was permitted.
  • It was the most pitiful excuse for a casino. I will never be back ever. It was a s quiet as a library. No one was winning . Whatever Anyone Said on here was true and hope u don't get thirsty. They don't. Come around much with drinks my boss said it was like a morgue.
  • Lots of fun. Probably won't win much but the possibility is there. Atmosphere is nice. Live band when we visited. A bit smokey but it is also a bar.
