Highlights: Slot machines, racetrack, location, and more

Empire City Casino has over 4,600 slot machine games available to play. The cost minimum ranges from 1 cent to 100 dollars to accommodate gamblers of all budgets. The nearby race track offers a number of horse races to bet on, including simulcast racing. The casino itself offers entertainment in the entertainment lounge every Friday and Saturday from 10 pm-2 am. The dining at this casino is versatile; The Big Kitchen is a food court with all kinds of options and the Empire City Chophouse is an upscale eating venue that’s only open on Friday and Saturday nights. The casino does not offer sports betting just yet, but The Pub is a place where you can kick back with a drink and watch the games.

Located just 6 miles from The Bronx, Empire City Casino is a great place for locals along with tourists to enjoy an evening. It’s still over half an hour from the city center so you won’t be bothered by the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. For those coming from out of town, the casino is a 17 mile drive to the LaGuardia airport and an hour plus from JFK. There’s tons of nearby hotels and things to do upon arrival. Of course there is. We’re talking about the Empire City here.
