So my cohort in crime is the casino person, not myself.... but we both had a blast! We dropped money in the garbage as you will always do when you visit a casino - it's a given. The machines gave back off and on so it was fun. There's two bars - tough getting into either of them but the... More

All the employees are genuinely nice. They seem happy to be working there and desire to help you. I had a small incident with the cash machine where my funds got stuck in it and it took a little while to sort it out and they compensated both me and the friend I was with for the inconvenience. Also, I... More

This was my first visit and we had a good time. Everyone was friendly and the dice were rolling in our favor. So overall it was enjoyable, but... There were only 4 Craps tables going on a Friday night, so they were all pretty crowded. It was smoky, so if you do not like the smoke you will not like... More

While in Philadelphia for a conference we ventured out to the casino to check it out. It was so much better than what we expected, considering the number of slots available. It has smoking and non-smoking sections, kind of intertwined but I never felt over-whelmed with smoke. I found some slots that were good to me and different from any... More

In the state of Maryland you can no longer smoke in public places and this casino was smoked up like a chimney stack. Although they have a non-smoking section the smokers are rude enough to bring their puffs in that section. The eateries are decent too but I wish the non-smoking section had a bar in it so you don't... More

I visited the Sugar House with a friend to see a show in the Event Center. I thought a cold Friday night in February would be a perfect time. My first impression was there was a lot of cars in the lot but it wasn't even busy inside except the poker room. The concert venue was ok. The sound was... More
