I've gambled at many casinos in my life, but this casino has the TIGHTEST SLOTS I have ever played.
I don't mind losing money, but this place doesn't even give you a chance. I lost $500 in less than an hour last time, playing quarter machines... Most casinos, I can play for 5-6 hours with $500.
Some places, you win a little, lose a little... But this place, I went through hundreds of dollars without winning any more than $1-$2 dollars on a spin.
Every single pull was a loser, 1 after another. I went through $100's of dollars without hitting a bonus round, and when I finally did hit a bonus round, I won $6.00.
Also, I've been to this casino about 7-8 times over the past couple years, and every time I've had the same results. I have NEVER EVER walked out of this casino a winner, and this is coming from a seasoned slot player...
Other casinos, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, but this place I have NEVER won, nor have I really seen anybody else win.
Table games were ok. Restaruants are very good. But slots are the worst ever, out of any casino I've ever been to.
I am still amazed at what some people feel passes as a nice casino. When I went to Greektown I found it to be way overcrowded, noisy, too smoky, and I hated the poker room. To be fair, poker is my game so I can't comment on the rooms or other table games. But the poker room was terrible. Nothing but a bunch of idiotic kids and cans of Red Bull, so smoky I would never go back, and the food was lousy with high prices for food and drink.
As far as I am concerned, there is only one casino in Detroit that can even compete with "real" casinos and Greektown isn't that casino.
Out of the 3 in Detroit Greektown is my favorite. It's in a fairly nice area of Detroit and close to a lot. The food selection is decent, but the buffet keeps going up in price. When they had the $10 dinner it was an excellent choice. Now it's well over $15 for the same buffet. They also have a 5 guys downstairs which is always a good eat. Tables are always crowded and the minimums are always $10 and above and on the weekends it's more like $20 minimums. Good amount of slows, but the payouts aren't good. The places is almost always crowded on the weekends so it doesn't feel like a very spacious casino except in the new areas. The employees aren't very friendly here or at any of the casinos in Detroit.
