Las Vegas-based MGM Resorts International, together with Hyatt Company, has brought some old-fashioned riverboat gaming in the Grand Victoria Casino Elgin since 1994.
Amid the atmospheric surroundings – 16-foot high ceilings help set the stage – are just under 30,000 square feet of gaming area for 1,100 slots and video poker machines, plus table games including Baccarat, Blackjack, Caribbean Stud Poker, Craps, Roulette, Three-card poker and Texas Hold ‘em Poker.
And speaking of poker, the lower level of the Grand Victoria Casino is devoted to the game, including no limit Texas Hold ‘em tables. The poker room also features a sandwich menu available exclusively to players.
The Grand Victoria Casino Elgin is open from 8:30am to 6:30am, while the poker room is open from 8:30am to 6:00am.
