many years of discussions of casino gambling in the Poconos, it has become a
reality with the opening of the first resort casino in Pennsylvania.
Our Review. PoconosBest.com visited the New Casino on it's Preview Night (Oct 20) The new Casino is really remarkable and impossible to describe without making comparisons to other Casinos. For those who have visited Atlantic City, the Mount Airy Casino will remind you of a small Borgata with its in-the-round casino floor full of slots and video games. As at the Borgata there is a central area with Bar in the round. Here you can sit (or stand) and enjoy a cocktail while conversing or playing one of the On The Bar video poker games. Restaurants and shops are on the perimeter.
A well rounded selections of restaurants includes a Steakhouse (Red), and upscale Italian eatery (Le Sorelle), Betty's American Diner, and one of the Best Buffets of any of the over 50 Casinos this reviewer has visited.
There are no comparisons to "Racinos". The Mount Airy Resort is a complete casino experience. Upon entry to the property you have a choice of Valet or Self Parking. The Multi story Grand Entrance with its two story cascading boulder and tree lined waterfall is impressive. There are four "Player's Club" counters to make your introduction to the gaming club swift and easy. The casino floor is well lit and easy to navigate. (Just walk around or follow most isles to the center bar).
Once on the casino floor the selections of over 2500 games is outstanding. From roulette to blackjack games with giant video screens with life size video dealers that seem almost as real as a person. 1 cent to $1 slots and all the latest in video Poker
