As much as I have tried, I never walked away from here with a jackpot. I'm not much of a gambler, that's for sure. But once in a while, I get a burning desire to throw away my hard earned money, and this is where I like to go! The slots are very cool, they have a large non smoking room downstairs (thank heaven!). It's a nice place to just get away for the day. I also enjoy the restaurants and bar they have at Grand Victoria. This is convenient to Metra and there's plenty of parking.

This casino has two floors. The upstairs has slots and tables, the down stairs has only slots. Also the downstairs is alot smaller but it is smoke free. The casino decore is nice and wait staff is friendly, The payouts are OK not great I guess it was just not my days when i went, There are more dollar slots and five dollar slots more then quarters. The tables are 10 dollars minimum but 5 dollars on the weekdays.

The boat was fun when it used go up and down the Fox River but now it is stationary. The gambling is ok. I won $400 there once. There buffet is awesome. There staff is friendly and the boat itself is clean. It is a fun place but really loud.

OK, I am the first person to admit this place is more than a little depressing. It is supposed to be a "riverboat," but it's really just a big building sitting in the middle of a little puddle.
During the day, patrons mostly consist of local residents from the old folks home who have been bussed in, sitting at the slot machines, chain-smoking with oxygen tanks at their side. At night, the scene isn't much better. Just less of the elderly and more of the sleazy middle-age man types. But still lots of smoke.

Nevertheless, if you want to gamble and you can't hop on a plane to Vegas, this will suffice. Elgin is far from glamorous, but it can be decently fun if you're with friends.
