Gaming America is on the move again! And this destination is home to some rare slot games...

Southeast Indiana has a generous number of casinos for Hoosier State players, as well as for those living in Kentucky and Ohio. In fact, there are three casinos within a 45-minute driving distance in this part of the state.

While in Dearborn County, I stopped at Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg, one of the three Indiana casinos located near the Ohio River.

Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg is operated by Penn Entertainment, and home to more than 1,200 slot games, 70 tables games and a sportsbook.

Parking was convenient at this location. The casino has an attached multi-level parking garage with access to an elevator that takes guests up to the main gaming floor.

And considering the fact it was raining the day I visited, the enclosed parking garage made the experience much more enjoyable.

If you decide to visit this entertainment hot spot, getting a rewards card here is a must. I was able to get $30 in free play just for signing up and downloading the app.

Free money is always a good thing!

The game selection here was impressive as well. Hollywood has a great assortment of video, progressive and reel slot options for players who want to try for a massive jackpot. I loved the variety of games available, and this casino has some titles that are harder to find.

One of these is the original Top Dollar. Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg has this game in couple of variations, including a five-line version at 25-cent denomination.

I was also able to find a 25-cent denomination, five-line version of Double Diamond here. At this point, I have visited seven casinos in the Hoosier State. This was the first location where I found both these games outside of the high-limit room.

The layout of the gaming floor was also impressive. Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg’s casino floor is essentially one long hallway with slot machines on each side. The walkway was wide, at least 10 feet across, giving people plenty of room to move around the casino while players are seated at their favorite games.

This was a nice touch. I have seen many gaming floors with plenty of room to move, but setting up the floor in one long walkway was a brilliant move.

As is the case with many other Indiana casinos, this one had complimentary drink stations positioned throughout the gaming floor.

Another convenient feature was the ATM and cash kiosks in various spots in the casino. And these were not just for taking more money out. I was able to cash in my vouchers at one of these machines when I was finished playing.

Any casino that gives the option to cash in tickets without having to hunt for the cashier’s station and wait in line earns an A in my book.

Top marks for Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg!
