Food, drink, hotel, and tables rated 1 because did not use. This is a very nice, clean casino and I was very impressed with the staff and especially customer service. As a matter of fact, the only person who did not smile when ask a question was the players club gal. But, saying that, I must agree with the previous entries.

The slots are the tightest I have seen in a long time. I played about 5 different machines and none payed anything to speak of. I played Vibrant 7 for quite a while and even though I got 3 bonuses, I won nothing higher than $5.40. I did get one big big bonus and won $40.00 but had already put in that and more. I did not see anyone winning anything to speak of and that is sad. Since this casino is so tight I have to wonder what effect the Ohio casinos will have on it. Probably not good.

Don't get me wrong, I do not go to Casinos thinking I will win big but a little never hurts. I would probably go back if in the area but would not make a special trip.

Slots seem as loose as any I've played, and comps are good for me.

I only go there about once a month, but get an extra half week added on. The help is friendly, but the buffet is mediocre and closed early a couple of times when I was there, the clubhouse upstairs is quite good.

The music is way too loud and geared to 14-year-old's taste (not many 14-yr-olds there).
You have a few machines that are very loud, but the ones that I usually play are virtually silent. Turn down the crap music and adjust the volume on ALL machines to a uniform level

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Had dinner at the buffet on Monday - $14.95!!! Yikes!. Food was typical buffet fare and quality.

The 'droid dealers are a little strange, but you can get used to it. Soft drinks are free, but you pay for all the others. Beers are between $2.25 and $3.00 - usual.

Go and have fun! We'd go back. Nice place. Pretty clean.

I have won some large jackpots on the dollar machines. The slot machines are VERY tight and the players club doesn't give you very much.



My husband and I both have been gold members for over a year and the most free slot play we have ever gotten is 54 dollars. We do get free buffets, hotdogs, and 2 drinks an evening.



They have done some nasty things in regards to progressive jackpots. Example is

big al's 200K pot. They stopped the progressive feature and no one has

won the pot. These machines get a huge amount of play and it is hard to

believe no one has won.



We are from Ohio. This is the closest casino to our home 1.5 hours. If Ohio

does get gambling, we probably won't go to this casino because it is so VERY

TIGHT.

Ok here's the deal... You people from Ohio are just plain jealous. I am a local here in Erie and I am sick and tired of hearing how bad it is at Presque Isle. There is an art in knowing how to play the slots. Yes, there are some very tight machines, but that is how they make money, duh?!? The secret is to know when to get off a machine when you've stuck a $100.00 in it.



Most people I see will play it til it's gone. Get a grip people! If it ain't paying off, jump off and go to the next machine. You also need to know when your bank roll is gone, don't go back and spend your winnings. People, you need to have a seperate pocket for your bankroll and one for your winnings.



Last year alone Las Vegas raked in some 18 billion dollars. All from slots. Do your homework people. Well we know you have a computer if you're reading this. Find some help on-line for playing the slots. Go to ebay for example.



I think what we have here in Erie is just fine! All the noises and happenings just like the casinos in AC and LV. And it's only minutes from my house!! I feel fortunate. Yes they could use a hotel on the property, but there are 4 within 2 minutes from the casino and dozens more just 5 minutes away on I-90. For people reading this... Go ahead, make a trip here, we have a wonderful beach and amusement park. Do your homework and go to a website explaining more about Erie.
