We had a great evening at the casino. Our daughter had just turned 18, so we got to take her out and show her something new. We had hours of fun on the machines for only $20 and showed her how the gaming tables worked.

I wasn't really impressed with The Reef Casino. It reminded me of an old RSL Club like they have in Sydney. The food wasn't that great. The Xtreme Magic show wasn't very extreme though the Magician had personality plus. The food wasn't very good either.

For Australian visitors, it's little more than an RSL/Pokies Venue with a few tables for roulette, blackjack, etc. Fairly depressing late at night I'd suggest most visitors aren't there for the ambience.

We visited the casino in the day time, so I cannot tell you about the nightlife, clubbing. The casino was not very busy and has your typical slots, etc. the Casino itself is not very large and probably more geared towards those that really like to gamble, for us it was a few minutes of entertainment and an indoor walk.

Very small casino which isn't too welcoming. The service was average and the games available were quite limited. Wouldn't go back to this place.

I am not a big gambler but I make an effort to visit to any Casino within where I am. I found the reef Casino very very small. Service is not the best either. Had few games of Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat. Right in the city, nice view from the balcony, minimum blackjack tables are $20 now. As what you... More

Had a great night with the wife, ordered room service and watched the footy. Desert was spectacular, if they want to get people to leave the room you will need to have a better enticement than a $5 casino voucher.
