Dover Downs Hotel & Casino Review

Dover Downs Hotel & Casino is located at 1131 North DuPont Highway, in Dover, Delaware. The motor speedway and horse racing track opened in 1969, the casino opened in 1995 with just 500 slot machines. Today the property is host to the world famous Monster Mile at Dover International Speedway, premier live harness racing from November through April, over 2,300 slots and electronic gaming machines, 44 gaming tables and virtual table, as well as a Race & Sports Book.

In early June 2019, Dover Downs new owners, Twin River Worldwide Holdings Inc., permanantly closed the third floor poker room. Live action tables have been moved to the 1st floor of the casino.

The property also includes a 500-room and suite hotel, inclduing 56 luxury suites on the 9th and 10th floors, a South Pacific-inspired full-service spa, boutique shops (The Colonnade), 10 dining options ranging from deli to gourmet, and five bars/lounges. Nearly 40,000 square feet of multifunction space is available including the 18,000 square foot Rollins Center where top name national acts perform regularly.

Gaming at Dover Downs

The 165,000 square foot casino at Dover Downs is 100% smoke-free inside and open 24/7, while smoking customers can light up if they choose in the outdoor Terrace Bar, which has a variety of slot machines and is protected from the elements. The Terrace Bar is opened seasonally, however, you can still play the machines that are located in that area.

Gaming is spread over three floors of the property. There are literally thousands of gambling options available to players, inclduing virtual gaming and a high limits area.

The 2,300 slots, video keno, and video blackjack machines are actually video lottery terminals (VLTs) served from the Delaware Lottery, but the machines are made by the same people who bring you Las Vegas and Atlantic City slots. No machine has higher than 95% RTP by law, nor less than 87%. The difference between a VLT and a casino slot is that a casino slot has an  onboard random number generator and program, while a VLT goes through a central server.

Keno is located in The Festival Buffet, the Gazebo Bar, Race & Sports Book and the Terrace Bar. Race & Sports Book betting is available 7 dats a week.

Sports betting was legalized in 2009 and table games came into the casino in 2010. Tables are located on the first floor in the casino.

Online gaming is available from Dover Downs when you are within the state of Delaware.
