Hamburg Casino and Raceway – Review
The casino doesn’t offer a lot of variety in games available and many of the slot machine games are available on the 1-cent games only. This is limiting for players who may be looking for higher stakes games. Players who want to risk more money may be interested in wagering at the horse track, but betting for the horse track is only available Wednesday through Sunday. Players may also want to venture off-site for more dining options, since the Hamburg Casino doesn’t offer any fine dining.
