  • Kentucky Downs is not a real Casino, it is a hybrid of picture type slots, bingo, and occasional live horse racing on the grounds. You can also bet on simulcast horse racing. They have no table type g...  more »
  • If I was in the area I might go back but I definitely wouldn't make a special trip. The machines have different pictures but they all play about the same. It got boring very quickly. 
  • Kentucky downs is right down the street from 3-4 hotels and motels. BIG parking lot.. staff is very friendly and accomodating. I signed up for the slot club, got more than my allotment of free play, v...  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.
  • Not impressed. There was not a very good selection of games. I've been to smaller casinos in Black Hawk Colorado that offered better variety. As a nonsmoker your immediately greeted by waves of smoke. I left after 20 minutes.
  • It is different than most Casinos but very enjoyable. For all the bad reviewers go to Las Vegas, lose the goat farm, come home broke and tell everyone what a great time you had. After playing in Casinos north to south, east to west the bad ratings come from unworldly people that can't have fun unless they are winning lots of money. These losers play PowerBall and call it fun. I won $100.00 which paid for my trip. Win or not I had a great time.
  • 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 excitement...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!
  • It used to be better. But I see it slowly go down hill fast.
