It is not Las Vegas, not even close ... So, I avoid this comparison, but in relation to others... It is the same small Casino that provide the basics. Unfortunately, the slot machines are not exciting... So the target to play is mainly to attempt wining few dollars, rather than enjoy the time and have fun. The table games are... More

Spent about 2 hours here on the weekend. The casino had a neglected feel to it. We signed up for players cards and the staff at the desk were friendly and explained how to use the card. We could see waitresses in the distance but they never came near where we were. We walked around and thought about going in... More

Went to Trapeze for supper before seeing Dallas Smith in the Schooner Room (incredible show!!!). Not too busy despite the audience gathering for the show. Very reasonable prices and good selection from a small but varied menu. Friendly service.

Let me start off by saying if I could rate Trapeze with no stars I would. Our visit there last night for our date night meal was the worst meal I've ever had. I can guarantee we won't ever be back. I'm writing this review as I feel obligated to let people know so no one else has the experience... More

Casino Nova Scotia is located on the waterfront in Halifax. The casino is quite small and wasn't very busy at any time in the 5 days we visited it. Parking there is a real bargain. If you gamble a minimum of $5 they will validate your parking ticket and parking is free. There are a number of slots and some... More

This is one of the smallest casinos I've visited, and there is not a lot to do here, but it's a great place to kill a couple hours. Odds are much better than the Quebec casinos, which pay out very little....and the people are far nicer. Actually won some money on the slots, and visited on two days. Clean, very... More

Good variety of slot machines. Reasonably priced entertainment option. Nice atmosphere. Expensive, poor tasting coffee.

We were told by a number of Halifax'ers that we needed to go to the Casino as it was a fun place. It was a nice sized casino but really just like any other. Staff were very friendly. The power did go out when we were there but no one seemed alarmed by it.

On the waterfront, Exciting watching and hearing winners !!!! This casino is in part of a hotel as well , located on the warf. Always packed with people enjoying an evening out. Seems like the slots closer to the entrance win a little bit more often. great way to sepnd an evening.
