This casino is pretty small and no frills. The minimum bets for blackjack aren't terrible though. The restaurants within weren't bad either. It could definitely use a craps table but this place is definitely good for a fun night out.

The casino is just a good night out, they have a couple of restaurants and a couple of bars and a nightclub, and obviously the casino itself with all the flashing lights and pokies. Be careful not to put to much in, I haven't seen to many big payouts.

This is the only Casino in far north Queensland and it is a boutique casino... it's very cute. I recall the first time I wandered in here , they had music playing out the front and the place was humming. This second visit it was much quieter. However , I love wandering in to look at the ceiling which makes... More

, the casino floor is a typical casino with the usual tables and slots. The casino has numerous restaurants, did not eat in any. There is a lounge with live entertainment. The casino is across the street from the Hilton Hotel and a 5 minute walk from the esplanade lagoon area. The casino is average , nothing special.

The casino precinct is the usual people watching place. The amount of screens available is plenty and they are showing lots of sport and racing. Everyone seemed happy and I did not witness any nasty stuff. It has pool tables which was a pleasant surprise and they were being used too. Staff are pleasant and although I only walked through...

We had a couple of meals in the club restaurant - which offered good value for money. It is also a great spot to catch the footy - no matter what code you follow!

Well I am not a huge fan of casinos, so it has been a while since I have visited one. I decided to break my losing streak while I was staying in Cairns. The food was great and very reasonably priced, however the gaming floors lacked atmosphere. The electronic card tables were pretty dominant and without a live person running... More

Compact small casino or think pokies venue with a few black jack tables and big wheel. Dated but we had a good time with a few drinks. Upstairs is a sports bar with NRL one side AFL on the other. Great layout and a few pool tables too boot. Whilst small it was still a good experience if your into... More

not a gambler at all but this was a fun night out. Not many there so enjoyed the experience as a one off. Good location. Cairns is lovely and everything, city wise, is is easy reach. Stayed over the road at The Pullman, which was fabulous

After checking the Casino's website about dress regulations, we made a little bit of an effort dressing. We needn't have bothered. We were there on a Saturday night, and it was full of people wearing thongs, t-shirts and shorts. Some people looked as though they had come straight from work sites and were extremely grubby. Don't go expecting anything fantastic... More
