We know Greektown has a lot to offer, and if you’re new to the area (or even new to casinos period) we understand it can get a little…overwhelming at first.

There’s plenty to do, plenty to see, and most importantly plenty to play, but for the uninitiated you might need a bit of help getting started on your first trip. If you’ve never been to the casino and you want some pointers before you show up, or if you’re bringing a friend or loved one along for the first time and want to help get them off to a good start, we’ve gotten some handy tips together!

Learn the lay of the land: Maybe the most common question we get from first-time visitors is “where the heck is everything?” and we totally get it! When you first show up, feel free to take a look around to see where everything is – find your favorite table games, check out all the new slots, and even get a look at the restaurants to see what you might be in the mood for when dinnertime rolls around. (Remembering where you parked is always a good idea too – good thing our parking garage is right nearby!)

Do a little research: Table games can be a great time for anyone visiting the casino, but we understand the rules can be a little much for someone sitting down at the tables for the first time. If you want to learn a little more about how the games work, we offer tons of rules for our different games such as blackjack rules, craps rules, and many more! Can’t hurt to do your homework before you get there, right?

Get a rewards card: We know, we know, it sounds a little like self-promotion, but we really do think a GT | Rewards Card makes your trips that much better. You get rewards and points just for playing the games you were going to be playing anyway, which will certainly pay off for you later when you head to our hotel or restaurants!

Save room for dinner: Greektown, speaking for the entire neighborhood, has a ton of restaurants to pick from – and many of them are right in our casino! If you’re going to hang out at Greektown Casino long enough to want to grab dinner during your stay, you don’t even need to leave the casino – our restaurants have something for everyone if you take the time to look!

Remember – have fun: A lot of people get a little…stressed out during their first visits. Don’t put yourself under too much pressure to see and do everything during your first visit, remember to just relax and have a good time – and as always, please remember to gamble responsibly!
