    Visited many years before. Seems much bigger than I remember. Very happy that NO smoking was allowed! Plenty of machines but, unfortunately, never seem to win here otherwise I would give it another st...  more »

    Spent the hot afternoon at Empire City Casino. Pleasantly surprised to discover that smoking was NOT permitted, unlike many casinos that I have visited. Parking is readily available and free. The slot...  more »

    First time here since they built the casino. I was here a lot for the racing many many years ago. The place has changed a lot. I had fun won some money a good time all around.  more »

    This casino is actually quite amazing, and very well staffed. There is a heavy presence of security, which made me feel extremely safe . Every time I turned around I saw either casino security dressed in uniform, or uniformed police officers. Asides from the great sense of security in the atmosphere, the casino is well taken care of . The bathrooms are cleaned and well maintained. There are cleaning people constantly walking around and making sure the casino is super clean . During my visit I also stopped at the food court. The food court has a wide variety of foods for any person , and you definitely get your money's worth. The portions are large , and they are well seasoned. The staff are kind , and they try to accommodate you as much as possible. My experience at the casino was amazing. I played so many new games some of which had Family Guy , and Pirate Themes. The machines that I played on the first floor paid out a reasonable amount of money , and I was satisfied with my winnings. Great casino , good food , I will return.

    Payouts are smaller opposed to the tribal casinos. No jackpots. If your a slot player which is all they have use caution on bigger bets. Smaller bets seem to get more payouts which allows you to play more It's a fun place to go and watch the horse racing as you sit outside under the the umbrellas on their concrete deck. The food is also very good. I definitely think it's a great place for a fun night out.

    Love coming here. I rather take the 45 min drive here than going to the one in Aqueduct even it a 15 min drive. Love that the work will hold a machine for you there always someone walking around if you need help. Aqueduct race you hardly find a worker on the floor. Whenever you ask them for help it like you bothering them to come and fix a machines. Just need a little more wining lol

    Fun place. Not enough restaurants... No live Poker.. big disappointment. And NO free cocktails while you play the slots. Had to pay 7$ for a beer then the waitress asked for a tip! This was the first casino I've been to where they didn't offer free cocktails. And security came over and said ... you are not allowed to take pics! Pretty rude. No pics in this day and age?? I liked the outdoor area where you can eat and sit and watch the troters go by and race.

    Love it here. Everything you need all in one place. Great entertainment. Great food at affordable prices and you always bump into someone you know. The staff is great and the bathroom is kept clean. Ample parking or mass transit if you dont drive. A great getaway for a few hours.
