All the hogwash these people are saying about this casino is so untrue...I'm a truck driver and had a delivery in this area I completed. I was deciding if I should go to philly and check out parts or harass....glad I didn't..... I'm always at casinos and this one isn't much different than the top rated ones... The smoking complaints are nonsense. I don't smoke but the air is ventilated well so forget the previous clowns remarks. The food is pricey but duhhhh it's a Casino. The security and waitresses were friendly. Now a lot of casinos outside Las Vegas and AX don't offer free alcohol but do offer free soda and coffee.... The waitresses do make rounds but not as much because again this isn't VEGAS!. In all, the games are great.. Over 3 days I made $1,000 on the roulette computer game betting on black,red, and zero. Each time I lost I doubled my bet...of course it was luck but that's why you use strategy to win.... As far as the slots go...no different than any other casino... A lot of you fail to realize that SLOTS are for losers. It's the bread and butter for the Casino's revenue. Yeah, someone wins a jackpot here and there, but most will lose their money just like any game..even tables....I will admit it sucks on the tables of mini baccaratt and blackjack with $500 maximum bets. I'm used to $5k-$100k max bets...so this leaves little chance for me to win since I like to double my bets on each loss..great way to keep you from getting your money back. In all, I like this casino...is it the best...no..I love HardRock Casino in Hollywood, Fl where Anna Nicole Smith died which is between Miami and Ft Lauderdale..... I was surprised it had card games at the tables because most casinos outside Vegas have to be on a riverboat or native Indian land so I don't know what laws allowed them to do this but i will find out. Food is good , does get crowded.......just like most Good casino's.......so to end this...don't pay attention the the negative hype the lakes are broadcasting......its a good experience and beautiful inside and out...... Just remember...THE HOUSE ALWAYS. WINS!!!!!!!

So live table games have been in place for about a month now. The big downside is the huge minimum wagers. In a recent trip on a Sunday morning, all the blackjack tables had either a $15 or $25 minimum. Roulette was $10. It seems very steep to me. What about having some tables that were $5 or even $10? They even removed the electronic blackjack game that had a $10 minimum. It seems like they are trying to dictate the type of person that they want playing their table games. They need to realize this is Grantville, Pa, not Las Vegas. I am not sure if the minimums will change once the newness of table games wears off or what will happen.

It is nice that they added some new slots and removed a majority of the 25 cent 3 reel slots that nobody ever played. It would be nice if they would have had some let-it-ride poker tables open, seemed a little odd to have 3 tables of pai gow poker open with just a few people actually playing.

I really enjoy playing here. The slots have been nice to me. I just don't know when to get up and leave a winner. The water at the buffet is wonderful I want to bottle it and take it home not to mention the food mumm.
I have never played the tables or stayed at any of the Hotels , there is no rating for N/A so I rated it a 1.
With the free play that they give me I will make the four-hour drive at least 12 times a year.
When you win take the money and run. The Hollywood Casino rocks.

What the heck is wrong with you people? You have a gambling addiction, or a sad misconception of what gambling is, you go to a casino and lose all your money and some how that surprises you? How do you think they build these enormous, beautiful places? By giving away all of their money? Why do you think most casinos pay out over 90%? Because that's how you keep people coming back, and the 10% they take from the people complaining of some kind of "odds altering conspiracy" is more than enough to stay in business and make huge profits.

Most people go through life and never win a lottery jackpot, is there some odds altering conspiracy because you spent your entire life playing every week and never won more than $20? Why do you think you deserve to walk out of a casino a winner every time you put down $500? You can spend $500,000 and if you don't sit at the right table or machine and the right time and just "get lucky", you may never win.

If you don't like losing money, don't go to a casino. They aren't built to make you rich, they're built to make the owners rich. (and by the way, thank you, I'm very rich)

you know if you really read these comments other patrons have wrtiten

it sounds like poor losers to me. When you walk into any casino you are risking losing some money. How much you lose depends on your own discipline and gambling addiction. I can truly say HOLLYWOOD has always been a fun place to visit. I frequented AC and Charlestown for 10 years, you get nowhere. The personal service out of all those casinos combined is less than you get at hollywood. I have always enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere when visiting, so lighten up you nah sayers you asked for casinos in PA. now put your money where your mouths were. I would love to visit more often but, I work 72 hours a week so I just make the most on my visits. THANKS HOLLYWOOD I will keep sending the positive people your way
