Very poor experience. I was kicked out of Greektown because i wasnt playing slots. We were approached very unprofessionally. While being escorted out, one of the lovely young security guards began to flirt with one of the guys we were with. Highly unprofessional. I have never been kicked out of greektown before for lounging and having a good time. Either they have changed the rules or we were truly picked on. On top of that it was a Sunday. I have no desire to visit greektown again. So disappointed. If you plan on going to have a drink and mingle for more than an hour, try somewhere else other than greektown.
Greektown Casino's Poker Room has it all wrong. Their customer service reps make you feel like you are an interruption to their time, consistently showing a lack of interest in your being there. They also add an extra step between paying for chips and receiving them that no other casino in MI has-why? Who knows, but it isn't to make you feel like they want your business. Oh, and if you need to use the bathroom, better hope noone else does cuz 1 stall & 1 urinal for a poker room full of guys is all they have. And if you arrive any less than 15 minutes prior to a tournament, they'd rather turn you away than take your money and let you play. Add to these things that you have to get your parking validated or pay up, the terrible food in the poker room and at the casino deli, and the utter refusals to provide inflrmation on tournament blind levels and you have an all around terrible experience. Don't waste your time here to play poker, and don't plan on getting decent food or friendly service.
I like downtown. We end up at Greektown for food and drink before a sports game most of the time. I would gamble more but, the minimum bet is way too high for my blood.
I only play dice at $5 tables and I could not find one in downtown Detroit, but over the river in Canada, NO problem. Their money is worth more now anyways.
We just went to Greektown Casino before a Wings game and ended up gambling a little. We found ourselves playing Texas Hold'em with a buy-in at $50 to $100. That sucked.
Then we found out there were tables at $3-$6 blinds to whatever. There was something of a kill button if you win 2 hands in a row the blinds go up $12-$??higher and you??€™re automatically in at $12 on the next hand. This sucked as well.
The dealers were OK. There was one guy who was way too big to be a dealer because he had trouble collecting the chips right in front of him.
The poker room was dirty and the cards & chips sticky. I'd rather drive north or fly to Vages or KC or Shreveport, LA, or go over the river to Canada before I play in Detroit again.
