the worst paying casino in Maryland
This casino has went down hill since the tables have come in. I lost $500.00 in 30mins. The only employees that had excellent customer service was the security as they greeted you coming in the door. The comps are some garbage and coming from Washington D.C. the tolls are not worth it. Stay away, save your money.
Bad experiences for me
Win or Lose, the employees and management of this casino is Horrible. If you would like to have a good gambling experience and be treated with respect and valued as a customer I highly recommend you choose another Maryland Casino
I love this casino because for 3 days straight I won a little over $200 a day totaling $700 I will definitely be back regularly. I'm just hoping they get The Walking Dead slot because I'll probably be there everyday lol. I really the atmosphere its inviting. So if you haven't been there go check them out I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself.
It got better
I go to this casino almost every week. They have table games now, and the slots are no longer as tight as they were. I had nice hits last several times...this is a small casino but well lit and modern. The roulette table could use a chip sorter...LONG delays between spins. Still, overall a fun place to visit.
Hopefully will get better with time
Very tight, slot only casino. They are the only game in town, so their payouts are low. I think when more casinos pop up, they will be forced to loosen up. I go to visit my family in Baltimore several times a year, and have gone to this casino about a half dozen times now. Never won, nobody that has gone with me has won. They do have a great buffet every now and then(not 7 days a week), and they are always sending me promotions in the mail. Hopefully Maryland will allow poker soon, and allow more casinos and this place could be great.
No to Low payouts
Highest state tax rate in the nation (67%) makes this casino a quick visit for your playing dollars. Jackpot payouts (If you should get one) are very low. It pays to drive to Atlantic City (Casino State tax rate 8%)to get the greatest number of play hours or to Charlestown, WV (Casino State tax rate 54%) which is a little better if the drive to AC is too long. On line gambling will soon impact the greed of state law makers who control State Casinos. But large Casinos with reasonable payouts will still draw in players as fun places to lose and will survive.
Stopped into the Perryville casino on the way home from Delaware Park, and what a disappointment. No real table games, slots only.....and everyone seemed to be in a bad mood because nobody was winning. Better to make the extra 25 minute drive into Delaware!!
The slots are very tight here. Very low payouts on bonus spins. I hear a lot of complaints when I go here.
Perryville Mixed emotions
Here's the deal, my first visit was dead on with great hits. Meanwhile, the majority of the machines are tight wads. What I have found if a machine (slot) is hitting here stay with it. I am a one time jackpot winner here, and it was great for that one moment. Out of the numerous times I have arrived and no wins (small or large) the memory of the one jackpot win goes away. What I lost here in several tries, I have tried West Virgina and twice have won back the lost in less than thirty minutes. Hmm I have had success on the Mermaid slot, $1 Slots, and Breakfast at Tiffany's. Play at your own risk.....Suggest you start with minimal bet to see if the machine is hitting.
Boring and no payback
This place is off I-95 between Baltimore and Wilmington. If you're in the area, Delaware Park is only 30 minutes away and a much better deal.
The buffet is crummy like all Hollywood Casinos. I've been here twice, and even when we were here on New Year's Eve there was no excitement. The second time I got a new comp card since I didn't have mine (it was an unexpected stop). She had to put all my info in again since it didn't take the first time.
And the slots here just don't seem to payout. This may because Maryland slot parlors have lower payouts (feel the same way about Ocean Downs too). But not someplace you should seek out.
Small, but there are some hidden gems here
This is a brand new casino with 1,500 machines. It's a pretty small place, you can stand anywhere, rotate 360, and see all 4 walls.
It's slots only as per Maryland statute (for now) and they're the "slots in a box" style for the most part. There are several banks of progressive slots, and a video poker area. They have 4-6 of the electronic blackjack and 3 card poker machines, and a bank of probably 10 of the electronic roulette machines.
Here's the hidden gem involving the electronic roulette machines:
1) Euro/French Style, which means only a single zero
2) The single number pays out THIRTY SIX to one.
If you're playing single numbers a lot, your edge based on the single zero and the increased payout (most pay 34 or 35 to 1) give the house a much lower edge on this game!
