Been there a few times on my trip and still yet to receive proper greeting from bar staff and a smile. Very poor customer service. Good selection of pokies and set out okay BUT yes the old place needs a face lift and for gods sake get rid of that musty old smell in there eeewww. Come on Aquis😉

It's not Vegas but it is worth a visit for an hour for a little bit of fun and a cheap meal. The place only heats up at night so head over there then.

Upon walking into the casino entrance you can either visit the China Café or the bar (which was closed at the time we were there). The security guys greeted patrons on entering the Casino. There was a good selection of poker machines – both new and older variety. The casino has an eatery at the rear for casual snacks/meals. Upstairs... More

A casino is a casino! A good location with plenty of dining options and accommodation. The smokers section is a caged area at the back of building and is a very unpleasant experience to walk passed on the footpath. Plenty of options for gamblers and a lobby bar area with entertainment.

It's a smaller casino compared to others I have been too so this is nothing special but it is in a good location so staying there would probably be good. There is a Flinders Bar and Grill place there that whilst I did not eat it certainly looked reasonable priced and nice meals.

Like a real backpacker, I did not play but only went there to watch other people lose their money and drunk some free chocolate milk in the meanwhile. There is a cool cinema like sportsbar upstairs where you can watch some sports in style.

I didn't play in the casino, I just drunk some free coffee and supported some friends. But it was a really nice place to go. You don't have to dress all fancy and stuff.
