My review is geared for casino patrons that like the chance to win. This place gouges customers and is not patron friendly. Pai Gow poker started at $10 per hand and it's now $20. On busy nights they increase the price. Seen it go up...More

Stopped for a brief early morning visit during our departure from Hershey. The casino was practically deserted (we’re used to the Bethlehem Sands, which is much busier). The place is surprisingly large for being in the boondocks. The layout is wandering, like in Atlantic City...More
