WORST SLOTS EVER!
I've gambled at many casinos in my life, but this casino has the TIGHTEST SLOTS I have ever played.
I don't mind losing money, but this place doesn't even give you a chance. I lost $500 in less than an hour last time, playing quarter machines... Most casinos, I can play for 5-6 hours with $500.
Some places, you win a little, lose a little... But this place, I went through hundreds of dollars without winning any more than $1-$2 dollars on a spin.
Every single pull was a loser, 1 after another. I went through $100's of dollars without hitting a bonus round, and when I finally did hit a bonus round, I won $6.00.
Also, I've been to this casino about 7-8 times over the past couple years, and every time I've had the same results. I have NEVER EVER walked out of this casino a winner, and this is coming from a seasoned slot player...
Other casinos, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, but this place I have NEVER won, nor have I really seen anybody else win.
Table games were ok. Restaruants are very good. But slots are the worst ever, out of any casino I've ever been to.
Great Lakes No Frills Review
Greektown Casino in Detroit
This is my favorite of the 3 casinos in the city of Detroit. Generally, this place has lower limits, and is a good place to play table games, slots, and watch a game. It’s located near some great restaurants in Detroit, and the buffet at Greektown is a great choice for lunch or dinner. They usually have a promotion going on for slot club members, such as unwrapping a candy bar to win various freeplay amounts, etc. There is a People Mover stop at Greektown, so it’s a great place to park to shuttle over to a Red Wings or Tigers game as well.
The video poker slots are so tight you never can win. Other slots lose even faster. Table games always too hard to get on table. No fun there.
It's Greek To Me
I am still amazed at what some people feel passes as a nice casino. When I went to Greektown I found it to be way overcrowded, noisy, too smoky, and I hated the poker room. To be fair, poker is my game so I can't comment on the rooms or other table games. But the poker room was terrible. Nothing but a bunch of idiotic kids and cans of Red Bull, so smoky I would never go back, and the food was lousy with high prices for food and drink.
As far as I am concerned, there is only one casino in Detroit that can even compete with "real" casinos and Greektown isn't that casino.
Nice Hotel in Downtown Detroit
Greektown Casino/Hotel is located in the heart of Downtown Detroit. It is an easy walk to all major venues. The hotel rooms are small, but clean and modern with a nice view of the city. There is no pool or fitness center. The casino has recently been remodeled; they have in my experience, the easiest comps in Detroit. Table limits, as in all of the D, run high-ish, with $10 usually being the minimum.
Cozy casino feel
I love the cozy small casino feel of Greektown. I have not stayed in the hotel but have been to this casino over 50 times. Greektown has the latest slots and a decent comp program. Comps can be redeemed from a kiosk machine and are very easy to use. This place can get very busy on a Sunday when the Detroit Lions are playing a home game. Everyone uses the parking garage to park for free during the game. The food options here are not the best. If you are in the mood for a clean, fun, and enjoyable time this would be my casino of choice.
Let The Party Begin at Greektown!
When I can't go to Vegas, I have to stick with my favorite local casino, Greektown. This is a great casino to hangout, kill some time before a Detroit Tigers or Lions game and then ride the public transportation (we call it the "People Mover") over to Comerica Park or Ford Field. Greektown features a decent buffet, a nice selection of VP, and table games where the minimums usually start at $10. I have not stayed at the hotel yet, but have heard great things about it. Greektown is my favorite out of the 3 Detroit casinos.
Newer slot games, re-arranged gaming floor, sad Bu
Although you can now look forward to newer slot games installed, newer carpeting, and re-arranging of the main gaming floors to reduce congestion in navigating this property, you can still dread the horrible air circulation. Since Michigan has banned smoking in bars & restaurants, the casino remains one of the few places indoor smoking is allowed - and this property is always smoke-filled. Attendants at the Players' Club are generally pleasant, but don't expect the same from the elusive beverage servers and slot attendants. Expect long waits for slot maintenance and hand-pays, (if you're fortunate enough to get a rare handpay!) Attn Blackjack players - video games/dealers are the rage here. The hotel is newer, with most rooms are efficiency-sized: very small bathroom only with commode & shower stall, offset by a pocket door. Minimal counter area around the hand sink and little maneuvering space. Comfy beds! My hotel room has always been impeccably clean and neat, and hotel staff is quite friendly, pleasant and professional. Casino buffet is a big disappointment: recent changes include eliminating waitstaff, severely reducing food/menu selection and quality, reduced seating, installing self-serve drink station, and adding Mongolian BBQ (but removed a second station offering this custom service.) One big plus: casino comps are accepted at many food/shopping locations in GreekTown proper, on streets surrounding the casino. Look for the "Comps Welcome" signs, but remember to obtain a voucher from the Players' Club first! Also lots of fun promotions and frequent gift give-aways for PC members.
Decent for Detroit
Out of the 3 in Detroit Greektown is my favorite. It's in a fairly nice area of Detroit and close to a lot. The food selection is decent, but the buffet keeps going up in price. When they had the $10 dinner it was an excellent choice. Now it's well over $15 for the same buffet. They also have a 5 guys downstairs which is always a good eat. Tables are always crowded and the minimums are always $10 and above and on the weekends it's more like $20 minimums. Good amount of slows, but the payouts aren't good. The places is almost always crowded on the weekends so it doesn't feel like a very spacious casino except in the new areas. The employees aren't very friendly here or at any of the casinos in Detroit.
Avoid this hotel if you want to sleep
Had all kinds of problems with the ticket printers on the slot machines, could not get other machines to read the vouchers.
There is a club in Greektown, right outside the hotel, that plays loud thumping music until 3 AM from its rooftop. The hotel room windows were vibrating it was so loud.
Service at Bistro 555 was slow and understaffed, eat somewhere else. Staff was not responsive to any of my questions or requests for improved service or assistance.
Not paying out since April 2010
Slots are so tight it's unbelievable. I play no different than I have in the past but the slots are on lock down. This study has been since the beginning of April 2010. Same machines, same denominations without the payoff. VIP and can barely get a drink as you are playing. I wait sometimes two hours for a drink. I spend at least two to three days a week there, but at the rate things have been going GTC is chasing me away.
Best VP for this Ohio girl
I enjoy playing VP at Greektown. I play NSU, JB and pick'em. I'm not real happy with the smoke, but try to work around it. I go there on bus trips. I have had a lot of success there. This year I have had 3 RF's, most recent one Friday, at least 4 sets of dueces, and 2 straight flushes on pick'em.
I'm not real pleased with the downloading as the machines I play don't have the availability or don't work. Again, I work around it. I liked when you could download and cash out. When I went there Friday, it was nice that you could go to a counter apart from the slot booth to get comps or cash upstairs if there was a line at the booth.
I have their calendar which gives 2x points once a month. I'm only there for 5 hours on the bus and usually play mostly quarter VP and get $15 per week bonus play plus pretty decent comps. This is pretty decent for this Ohio girl who wants good paying VP with incentives.
not impressed. wont go back
My friend and i were just there on a bus trip. very disappointed. First off, had to waste alot of time getting a pin number to work and for it to be activated to get money. second, they never told you how you had to use your money that you get back from the bus trip. which i thought they should have told you on the bus, or when you got reservations.
2 hrs later was when we found out when a worker helped us. very smokey. should have a non smoking section like Wheeling. the food is so so, was not happy with this trip. didnt win much. slots very tight. if you get a bonus wouldnt be much. probably wont go back. like wheeling better. lot nicer and better place. give them an over all rating of 2. very congested.
Opa! - not really
The expanded GreekTown Casino in Detroit has several major problems that seriously need to be addressed: the slot floor and tables area are too crowded and claustrophobic. GreekTown would be much more pleasant if they re-arranged the gaming floor to best utilize their space: break up the rows of slots and add more room around your tables!
I have not played tables here as they always have been crowded, but tables are too close and block high traffic areas on the gaming floor. Low ceilings on the second floor make for poor air circulation and noxious second-hand smoke. On a plus side is the secluded room/area for Video poker and roomy High-Limits area.
Another plus is the vast and varied selection of games: new releases, old favorites, and variety of denominations makes it more likely for everyone to find something they like to play.
Converting your Players' points and Free Play offers at each slot machine is a big convenience, as is the ability to use your food comps at numerous eateries in the casino property and at neighboring locations immediately surrounding the casino.
Need to have more or larger Player's Club service counters! Manuvering the new parking garage often is cumbersome and the structure doesn't seem big enough to handle the large crowds going to this newly expanded facility. The walk from the garage to the casino property is still long, but at least it's protected from the elements. Haven't stayed in the new hotel nor eaten at the new buffet yet, but have heard good comments about both.
A Better Greektown...
We just visited the new and improved Greektown and was really impressed. There are loads of new machines including many one and two cent slots. I even played a three cent machine.
The buffet was only $20 and it was fabulous!!! They are running a special right now in that all rooms are $39.99 anytime. That will get me up there again. I usually go to Windsor only because it is non smoking but it truly wasn't that smokey at all. I will go back to Greektown again.
While I have spent years going to Greektown my visits have dwindled in the last couple of years. I love the large number of penny and two cent machines that this casino offers and the atmosphere is clean and nice.
However, every since they started adding on the hotel 2 years ago, the slots have become so tight that the average Joe (and or Jane) cant afford to visit often. I used to be able to take $100 to Greektown and play for 6-7 hours. Now, your lucky if that lasts you an hour or two.
Looks and feels temporary
This casino was originally just temporary until a new casino could be designed and built.
Now it is becoming permanent with an addition, but still looks and feels very temporary.
High limits at tables for the poor ambiance of this joint. The all new MGM is getting most of the attention in downtown Detroit.
Nice but needs help
I like downtown. We end up at Greektown for food and drink before a sports game most of the time. I would gamble more but, the minimum bet is way too high for my blood.
I only play dice at $5 tables and I could not find one in downtown Detroit, but over the river in Canada, NO problem. Their money is worth more now anyways.
We just went to Greektown Casino before a Wings game and ended up gambling a little. We found ourselves playing Texas Hold'em with a buy-in at $50 to $100. That sucked.
Then we found out there were tables at $3-$6 blinds to whatever. There was something of a kill button if you win 2 hands in a row the blinds go up $12-$??higher and you??€™re automatically in at $12 on the next hand. This sucked as well.
The dealers were OK. There was one guy who was way too big to be a dealer because he had trouble collecting the chips right in front of him.
The poker room was dirty and the cards & chips sticky. I'd rather drive north or fly to Vages or KC or Shreveport, LA, or go over the river to Canada before I play in Detroit again.
