  • This place stinks of despair. It's mostly under privileged people being taken advantage of. The seats at the tables and slots are all worn through. There's a smell to the place, you'll catch a whiff of it and it'll turn your stomach. If you've read the description so far you can imagine what the dining is like, it's no better. Head to the bar for a drink? Insane prices for drinks at a casino: Blue Moon or similar will be $8 a pint. The staff, at least in promotions, were the worst you could find in society. The one staff member was yelling at a customer in Spanish and then after security took the customer away the staff member explained to their coworker that she told the customer to meet her outside, that she would beat her ass when she's off work. This entire thing taking place in front of a long line of customers.(12/3/2017 - about 3:30) Between the smell, the dirtiness, the staff, the food, and the drinks there is no way I could ever recommend anyone coming here. I'd say avoid at all costs.
  • The workers aren't the most friendly or helpful. Many seem like they dislike their jobs. Better training would be helpful since a lot of them can't direct you to the exit you ask about. Bathrooms aren't kept like years ago. Also, Empire has change their point system. If you don't come monthly you lose your points and start from scratch. Seem as if they're encouraging gambling in people. This can be dangerous to people with addictive personalities.
  • I didn't want to believe the negative reviews as I simply thought it was from sore losers. Actually it's much worse, first of all this is NOT a casino, it's a video only gaming site. The state of NY owns this and as everything the state owns, we'll you can only imagine. The food was $18 for less than mediocre food, which was a fry, small fountain drank and hot wings. When I went and asked about a refill, a very smug manager stated it would be an additional $3.00. This is after spending, well way to much money. They won't have to worry about getting any more of my money. I rather take my money to spend on a real casino where people actually act as of they are happy you are there. This place is beyond a joke. Typical of what you would thank state owned casino would be. You've been warned!
  • Slits were paying out throughout the casino on a Friday night. Great sign in my opinion. Three card poker always a winner for us. Mini Royal and a $650 win. Just like that. Hit a few more good hands before it turned. Drinks, however, were very scarce. Winning seems to make me not care so much. Crowded but machines were readily available.
  • Gm this is the second time my friend ,who gives a bus ride for the seniors every month is left waiting to be greeted at empire casino. Last month they only had 2 greeters on a Tuesday . This is when they we have a good promo. I feel that in all they need more greeters on this day
