    Place is terrible. Racist managers. Managers favoring ### kissers and fake people. Termination without a reason. Excuses by every manager for failure on there part. The blame game. Ignorant and irresponsible employees. Drug dealers in the locker room. Thieves from the city rob your private locker of your personal things. No raises. Dishonest. Terrible customer service as i know personally from my managers and them telling me how much they do not care about the costumers to stand there hypocritically stating that service is everything. Worst cafeteria. Bathrooms are disgusting. Certain employees granted special privileges others are not as far as eating at foodies and purchasing cigarettes. Smoke room located on top of a sewer pipe literally. Oh yeah everyone is an ### or some type of know it all.

    Hey, I really feel bad for those honest hard working employees who work for this foresaken casino. They treat their empl;oyees like they treat their patrons...like crap...and some. None of the employee complaints really surprise me. Parx is numter 1 allright. They are the number one hell hole in the USA!!!

    These poor people have gone without raises, any recognition. Parx management ought to be ashamed of themselves. I can certainly see the correlation between employees and patrons. They are equally treated like crap. Where employees don't get raises for years of service and no privlidges, Parx is equally cheap with their patrons with phony contests, lousy comps, insipid point systems, lousy, broken down slot machines, management that never addresses patrons issues. Absolutely management with no class. No morals. I've written and called Parx at least 3 or 4 times with no response from management. That just clearly shows me how inept their management is when it comes to customer service. There is none, which makes this place the biggest HELL HOLE on the East Coast! Vegas my ###, Parx!!!

    I certainly can sympathize with Parx employees. I know first hand how they mistreat their patrons. This place is a true Hell Hole for both employees and patrons. I have lately heard so many negative reviews. And those idiots who run this place act as if nothing is going on. Shame on them. I have gone to other casinos in the area, where everyone, regardless of race, creed or color, or the amount they bet, are treated equally and with respect., where at Parx, it's unheard of. This casino has no class whatsoever. Their slots are always tight and broken down. Their restaurants like Foodies are horrendous. The food is always undercooked, service is extremely slow. The cocktail waitresses never come back with your drinks when you request them. The ticket redemption machines are always disabled. And so are the ATM's. Even the Valet machines are always not working. Smoking is way out of control, where smokers are being allowed to light up in non smoking sections. Those a-holes in red suits do absdolutely nothing to stop them. Their new point system and promotions are an absolute joke. No one ever wins. It's just a ploy to get everyone in to lose their hard earned dollars.
    Parx seriously needs to clean house with their management & staff . They also need to adapt a policy, allowing only 1 patron per machine. These cheap ### ought to hire real security personnel to guard the doors and the casino floor. Thst's what all other casinos do. Many times, I see people taking 2-3 machines in a row where no one is sitting there and no money is in the machine . This is not right, especially during periods of large crowds.
    All in all, Parx Casino is an absolute disgrace. I highly recommend staying away from this hell hole. Go to Sands in Bethlehem, Mt Airy, Harrah's Chester, Sugar House, or even AC. But stay far far away from Parx!!!

    You are 100% correct about Parx I have been a patron there for a good part of 4 years always play a favorite machine of mine when you get into a bonus round not all the tiles work its been like that since I can remember. Their promotions and x-tra play is a joke you would think that at least once one would get lucky and pick a large slot prize no way its a come-on just to draw you in. X-Tra play is also a joke what Parx needs is new owners to clean-up, repair and re-hire new help. The slot machines are so tight you can easily loose a substantial amount of money which I have done numerous times but winning a large sum is virtually impossible, My overall opinion stay away its as bad as the above posts say. Parx is #1 the #1 xxxx-xxxx in PA. Go elsewhere at least the other local casinos gives you a chance to win Parx is a never ending vacuum cleaner that just sucks all your money.

    I lived in Langhorne and moved away. Always went to the casino. I was back this weekend for a visit. I see things havent changed. I never won anything before and I still did not win this weekend. Terrible casino. They just take your money and pay out little money. Walking around I did not see one person with a winning machine waiting to be paid. Go to the Pittsburgh casinos. They really do pay a lot more than Parx. Plus they give you much better customer service.

    I went to your casino on Sunday 9-20-2015 for a little fun and gambling with your limited amount of tables i couldn't sit down to gamble cause u allow players to play more than one chair at a time on the blackjack tables. While this ok if there is no one waiting to play but if other people are waiting to play you should make the other person give up one of there hands so other people can play. This one table had two people player two hands at once while we r waiting to play not fair i travel down there for fun and relaxation and cant even gamble . I think this very unfair i talked to a pit boss of the tables and he said that is the rule well what about the other people who came down there to gamble and to top it off one of the people who was playing two hands got very rude and nasty. I will talking to the gaming commission about this problem . Thank you James Brienza jrb_561@ yahoo.com

    I have going to Parx Cas'ino since they open and were at the smaller casino. First let me say that at the old casino there was a chance that you could win something, but since they opened the new money pit...no one wins. My mother, sister and lots of friends have gambled at the New Parx and lost lost lost. The free play and extra play are a disgrace to your intelligence. Compared to other casino's Parx should be condemned for the safety of your finances! At some point patrons should win something and be able to enjoy their visit. At Parx Casino almost all patrons go home sad!!! What they do to senior citizens should be against the law. If there is a PA Casino Commission they should monitor Parx Casino!!! This Casino will destroy YOU!!!

    Parx is absolute garbage. Not only are the parking lots full of beer bottles and trash, the inside is full of cigarette smoke and ashes all over the place. The slots, tables are as tight as I have ever seen them. Their food offerings suck. Usually casinos are known for their restaurants and fine dining. Not PARX by a long shot. Their promotions are the absolute worst where they always run out of product. An example was the Kenneth Cole giveaway. Many people, including myself were jilted out of the promotional giveaway, due to the marketing geniuses at PARX not ordering enough. And their comps are the absolute lowest I have ever seen at any casino. Having been a loyal patron since 2006, I have seen PARX go from being great to one of the very worst places on the face of the earth. As a result of my complaints to management, I was permanently banned. This is so incredibly unfair and absolutely no way to do business. If I were a manager of this casino, I'd take all complaints into consideration and find a way to correct the problems instead of punish those of us who simply speak the truth. Parx management have absolutely no sense of urgency when it comes to fixing the problems that patrons complain about day after day. They simply don't accept, or show any ability to take any type of constructive criticism. That is very sad. I really feel sorry for this place, and the patrons who they continue to rip off and mistreat. This casino is simply not worth it and don't deserve any of my patronage.

    Ordered two side orders of mash potatoes in foodies.. the girl named Kinsey took my order and money.. OK fine I waited about 10 minutes.. .10 minutes went by then 30 minutes went by... then she tells me they ran out.. she should of told me in the beginning that they ran out instead of making me to wait 30 minutes then tell me they ran out..sorry to say very very bad business practice ..employees working in Foodies should be retrained if they can't serve customers

    I used to go to Parx all the time . But I got tired of depositing my money in their slots without ever a decent win .This is the tightest casino I have ever seen . Besides their ridiculously tight slots, their comp and free play is a joke . With all the thousands of dollars I have given them . I am lucky if I got a hot pretzel
    . I will never go back unless something changes . It is only 40 minutes from my house . But I will drive the extra hour to go to Sands or Atlantic City . At least there I may sometimes come home a winner plus I get a great meal and comp rooms .
