An evening of fun for less than 50$

If you want to have fun for an evening, I wil suggest to come and and put a 5$ on a dog race. It is fun, simple and even if you do not know the dog world you will be able to win.

We went for the dog racing with a bunch of people that had never been before. The setting is a little run down but a great spot for our purpose as it was quiet and not overcrowded. The intimidation factor was minimized for those just learning how to wager, which was nice! I wandered into the casino and was pleasantly... More

It's not Vegas, but it has a good decor and tons of fun. Besides the casino and the machines, they have a good restaurant, we enjoyed our meal. I like the horses and the racetrack is a bonus when then are running. The weather is perfect in December. For events on New Years eve, 'Dust in the Wind' performs.

Fun, full of energy and great people watching. The racetrack is well run, lots of people, a fun day out. Love the ease of this track. You never feel rushed or in lines to place the bet. Everyone enjoys this outing.

I love this Casino, it is like the old casinos used to be, not to big, machines let you play and staff is excellent. Go every Christmas and have a great time.

Went to this casino because it was basically just down the street from my hotel. Hadn't been to a casino in years. Things have really changed. All the games are electronic and there are no dealers. But it was fun. Didn't go into the horse racing part, was just in the casino for about an hour and a half. Very... More

Mardi Gras tries hard, but it is just older than the other places and could use a complete remodel. The stands for the races aren't bad, but otherwise it could use help. Many people say their slots are looser than others, but I haven't noticed. Food is no their thing either. It's available, but nothing to brag about. They do... More

One of the best casino's in Florida. Every time we are in Pompano Beach we make a stop at the Mardi Gras casino. Have done very well there. They have really cheap drinks and lots of slots. Great time for a group of adults to do a night out.

The live music and slots were ok. Food at the restaurant was average but this is a budget gaming facility so that was no surprise. If you are looking for an upscale place, this is probably not the casino for you. If you are looking for a fun, no frills, low budget experience, you may enjoy this location. Careful though... More
