Dedicated Ballys player

I have been a slot player at Ballys for over 20 years, most of that time a diamond card holder, until last.year!, my friends and I visited once ot twice a month! I get asorr mim. of 600 tier pts.each trip! Now i earned platimum status , ( not by getting a credit card). I keep trying to get a room but i am told nothing available for a comp,room! I have a problem walking so Ballys tower is perfect for me! For some reason Ballys is not taking care of their faithful visiters! We eat, sleep and play at Ballys! Conventioneers spend hardly nothing compared to what we do, yet they,are pampered as are the young crowd who drink free and get bombed spending nothing., i am frustrated and i guess my friends and I will have to find our enjoyment elsewhere as many others have! Sorry i have always enjoyed Ballys , its a shame you are ruining it for the real supporters of the casino!

Just awful

Just took my wife and daughter to vacation in AC stayed @ Bally, so dissapointed. Room was ok was surprise to have refrig no microwave? Really generic. Staff kinda rude except for one housekeeper lady. Also notice security on game floor mean and ignorant, looking @ you like ya gonna steal. Never felt comfortable or welcomed, and as far as slots no comment. One big gimmick, Every casino on boardwalk we played slots @ totally tight , atmosphere horrible cross the board should have stayed in PA.. Never AGAIN ...

Bally's is a good stay and play

Bally's is in a great center boardwalk location, The casino games are pretty standard in A.C., but there are some good progressives and full pay video poker. The poker room is way up on 4th level by escalator but gets plenty of player traffic. The buffet is closed, but the indoor pool and spa were nice. I enjoyed my stay at Bally's.

It was ok

Stayed here last week since they had given me two rooms for free which we're located in the Claridge so were not the greatest rooms but hey can't beat comped really. I was in Atlantic City back in January of this year and I thought the wild west portion of the Casino was going down hill then well this visit it really went down hill. There are only a few machines left there in the wild west portion of the casino. Where there were slots it's now boarded off and I heard that the buffet is closing shortly as well. I spent 200 dollars in the slots and have nothing to show for it either.

Not good customer service

I have a slot bonus ticket which I got by paying the bus fee once. But I did not bring my Id with me. They told me I can come next time and get it.

I came today. But they said if I want to get it I have to pay for their bus again, which I did not.
I think it is reasonable to get this bonus since I already paid it. I am not sure I will go to atlantic city again, so I probably will never get this bonus.
Really nothing more to say about their service. They just really do not care about their customers. very cold attitude.

Great Location

The best thing this place has going is the location. It's a great center of the boardwalk spot. Bally's is two junky hotels hodge-podged together to make one just ok hotel. There is a fee to access the indoor pool, and it looks like a time machine took you to 1984 once you get in (think Miami Vice). Bally's tries with decent promotions and the buffet is ok if you get a half off coupon.

Bally's is in the center of the action

Well, I took my buddy Doug who is an extra (Dancer) in Boardwalk Empire for his birthday to AC and had to pay thru the nose for a Friday night, but it was fine. Some great VP & table action. What I didn't like was the Wild West Buffet..ugh !!! It was one of the most thoroughly miserable breakfast buffets I have ever seen. I think they had an omelet station. one. NO waffles. NO waffles? Come on! The overall quality was very, very disappointing. Better to hump over to Caesars and be treated like a Roman conqueror rather than a starving cowboy. I DO LIKE the roaming tables through the Wild West casino and easy access to the other casinos. And I kept wanting to get my slot card checked, but the line was always like 30 minutes. Screw that.

Favorite Total Rewards Property in AC

Bally's is now my favorite Total Rewards Property in Atlantic City. The Virginia City Buffet is a good value as far as Atlantic City standards go. The snack bar downstairs in the Virginia City Casino is good for a quick bite and the bar downstairs is fun and reasonably priced. Their video poker selection is the best of the Total Rewards properties and the casino is within walking distance of the outlets and The White House Sub Shop (a must for each of our visits)!

Get casino terrible rooms

The table games here are great but the slots don't seem to ever hit for more than $20. I have eaten at the Virginia city buffet a few times and never had any problems. Johnny Rockets is also a good place to eat cheap and the food is really good.

With the players card it seems to take forever to earn the next level but the comps they give you each month are pretty good (free rooms sunday thur thursday or $30 free play). The rooms in Bally's are nice rooms but the last two times I stayed I got rooms in the claridge which are the worst rooms I've ever stayed in.

The worst part is I had hotel reservations for the upgraded room and when I got there they down graded my room to the basic room and STILL CHARGED ME THE UPGRADED PRICE. When trying to talk to someone they didn't give me any help. The customer service is horrible. Never stay here unless you are given a free room. Now all I do is take $20 and play a little roulette and then leave so I take their money instead of them taking mine.

Never Win


I have gambled in Bally's for years, Platium Card holder never won a penny in that place. Hit in other Casino's not for much but I won something. Bally's and Harrah's took out all the fun slot machines, it seems that these new machines are set for you to spend more money and never let you win.



Have you notice that the slot machines spin differently? The pause and the over spin, I had a machine almost hit and the wheel just skipped, the person next to me could not believe what they saw the machine do. I laughed ,when I read someone wrote, you can't win on these machines they put $100 bill in the slot machine and never went into the bonus round.



That is so funny yet so true. I now tell my friends who love to gamble to go to P.A. or Yonkers they still have slot machines that let you win. And I also agree with the Claridge haters, the place is a dump. The Bally's rooms are very nice, not always clean.

Never again


We will never again stay at Ballys in AC. They closed our favorite restaurant (barbeque). They took away the omelette maker at the 15 dollar breakfast buffet and generally messed up the food service. The lowlight of our last (and final) visit was sending a steak back at the buffet for being overcooked and watching the partially eaten one end up back on the grill.



We were put in the Claridge and the room was barely up to Day's Inn standards. I noticed that all blackjack tables on the main floor have rules that are detrimental to the player. I played for 90 minutes at a 25 dollar table with bets ranging from 25 to 50 dollars and received all of 3 dollars in comps. There is no reason whatsoever to stay or play there when the Borgata is just a ten minute drive away. Their food and service and table games are far superior and they still comp you a decent amount if you give them enough play during the day.

Great Place

I'm a frequent visitor to Atlantic City and Bally's is one of my favorite casinos. I receive frequent mail regarding free rooms and free money on my total rewards card. For the past year, they have offered me $15 weekly and my friend $25 weekly. When i first signed up for their card they offered a free room with 30 minutes of play and sure enough it was true. If you are booking a room just be aware that the rooms in the Claridge Hotel are less glamorous but the rooms in Ballys are fantastic. Rooms are cheap during the week and if you play its more likely that you'll only get a free room during the week. Weekend prices are a lot more expensive but that is the same with every casino.



Ballys also has great places to eat. My favorite place is the noodle place on the casino floor which is open 24hrs a day. With all the comp dollars I have accumulated I have never paid for a meal.



Another thing that I like about Bally's is that it is connected to the Wild Wild West Casino which is a totally different atmosphere. Wild West has a country theme to it and Caesars Casino is connected to it too so you can travel throughout these three places without ever going outside which is a plus if you are booking in the winter.



I have been to other casinos where it is near impossible to get a drink on a friday or saturday night but Bally's doesn't keep you waiting long.



Bally's is also in a great location in Atlantic City. It's close to everything! The outlets aren't too far away and its located at the middle of the boardwalk. There is an amusement park which is open when it gets warm which is probably a 10-12minute walk away.

Decent Video Poker


I vist this casino each year when I visit Atlantic City.



I have never stayed at the Bally's hotel, but I have stayed in the past at the Claridge which is now part of the same property. The room was very ordinary and nothing fancy.



I like to play video poker here because they have a 25-cent triple-play 8/5 Bonus Poker game with a progressive.



I have been lucky on it and I hit a royal flush in each of the past two years. They also have $1 9/6 Jacks or better with a progressive jackpot in the Park Place poker section. In the high-limit room they also have $1 9/6 Jacks as well as $1 8/5 Bonus in triple-play versions.



You can also get free parking when you earn 25 base points on your Harrah's Total rewards card. $10 on video poker equals one point, so you need to play $250 for the free parking coupon. If you play slots, then $5 equals one point and it would require only $125 in play to earn the free parking comp.

Ballys

One of best buffets in Atlantic City at Virginia City on the Wild West side. Has game pai gow Mania with 3 card pair, plus bet bonus and 5 card bonus can use joker for (A) straight or flush.



Room are nice. Food comps all connected with Harrah's Company. Horse room (OTB) is nice.

Awesome

This is my favorite Casino in AC!! They pay out good, the casino makes you feel like you are in the mountains in the west. If you're a fan of country music, this is your place!!!



The blackjack tables are good as well, I'm on them all the time for hours on end.
