Eldorado Gaming Scioto Downs Review Jump to comments

Eldorado Gaming Scioto Downs, formerly Scioto Downs Racino is located in ColumbusOhio and is the state's first racino. The property opened to slots (VLT) play on June 1, 2012, but the race track and facilities have been in operation since 1959. Scioto Downs Racino is operated by MTR Gaming Group under authority of the Ohio Lottery Commission.

The casino spans 117,000 square feet and holds over 2,100 video lottery terminals with the same game names and themes as you would play in Las Vegas or Atlantic City. VLTs operate just like slots on the outside - inside they simply go through lottery servers rather than have an onboard random number generator - human error and oversight are virtually eliminated with this system.

Eldorado Scioto Downs also offers an outdoor Gaming Pavilion that features more than 100 VLTs, Keno Bartop games and a centralized bar. Smokers can step into the Courtyard Smoking Patio that feature over 60 games and a fire pit with lounge seating.

Scioto Downs Racino is open 24 hours a day every day of the year. There are several restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues on the property and of course the Race Track still runs May through September with simulcast betting allowed daily year round. When the track is off-hours, the raceway opens for a Summer Concert Series with nationally known superstars providing entertainment.

Hi, thank you for stopping in! We weren't able to locate that facility for you but you can call 877-672-4686 (877-6 SCIOTO) to inquire. Make sure you have your card handy. They won't answer points inquiries over email, Facebook, or twitter - for your protection. Please keep in that INClub mind points expire after 6 months. Hope that is helpful.

Gaming at Eldorado Scioto Downs

Except for holidays, post time at Scioto Downs is open 6:30pm Tuesday through Saturday with special holiday starts such as Memorial Day and Labor Day at 1:30pm. Simulcast racing occurs 11am to midnight every day.

The Racino is open 24/7 and features reel slots, video slots, and video keno with more than 2,000 video lottery terminals. These machines look and act just like the games in Las Vegas. Scioto Downs Racino has published "Video Lottery Terminals 101" primer in PDF for those not familiar with the concept, but most people are happy just to play the games and not worry about the inner workings.

Game play denominations range from a penny to $100. Machines take cash or tickets. Choose a denomination and number of lines to play and press spin or repeat if you have already set your stakes. When you want to cash out the machine will print a ticket which can be used on another machine or converted to cash at Guest Services or one of the 19 Cash Centers. Just like Vegas!
