Written By Corey Sharp on September 13, 2023 - Last Updated on February 9, 2024
We ranked the largest WV casinos based on their updated slot counts for September 2023.

West Virginia is a much smaller state compared to other legal gaming locations like Pennsylvania. Therefore, it doesn’t have nearly as many casinos as the Keystone State.

The Mountain State has five casinos of various sizes. Each casino is unique compared to one another, and offers different amenities to stand out.

Let’s take a look at the top WV casinos and their updated slot counts for this month.

No. 1 – Hollywood Casino Charles Town

Slot count: Nearly 2,000

Hollywood Charles Town is the largest West Virginia casino in terms of slot machines, offering nearing 2,000 games. The facility ranges 84,000 square feet, while including 74 table games and a live poker room.

In addition to gaming, Hollywood Charles Town has 153 hotel rooms, four different dining selections and entertainment. The casino holds comedy shows and live music performances in its event center.

Guests can also book weddings and banquets in the casino’s ballroom.

No. 2 – Wheeling Island

Slot count: More than 1,100

Wheeling Island Casino’s gaming floor is nearly 100,000 square feet and carries more than 1,100 slot machines. Wheeling Island can also accommodate overnight guests, with a 151-room hotel.

The casino holds banquets and other events in a 1,000-seat showroom, as well.

Wheeling Island conducts horse racing on its track, and has several food options guests can enjoy.

The Betly Sportsbook is also available for guests looking to catch a big game.

Another resort facility, Mardi Gras Casino has a 150-room hotel, in addition to the nearly 700 slots and 35 table games it carries. The hotel showcases a fitness center and bar.

The Cross Lanes casino has four dining options that includes a sports bar, too. Mardi Gras also has a Betly Sportsbook located inside the casino, as well as horse racing.

No. 5 – The Greenbrier

Slot count: 380 slot machines

While The Greenbrier might have the lowest slot total among the five West Virginia casinos, it offers a host of other amenities. The Greenbrier features 380 slot machines, 30 table games and a FanDuel WV Sportsbook.

The facility is planted on land across 11 acres, with 710 hotel rooms, a spa for guests, 20 dining options and 200,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The largest ballroom in The Greenbrier is 16,000 square feet.

It’s the only private casino in the country, meaning, you have to be an overnight guest or a member to gamble inside the casino.
