A nice little casino with reasonably priced drinks. There's a variety of gaming tables (no craps) with a reasonable amount of pokies. There's a sports lounge upstairs with an area for poker tournaments. There's a few restaurants inside the building with a good bar called vertigo that has live music 7 nights a week.

Its a casino. Nice restaurant for before or after a play on the pokies. Lovely rooms in the hotel side - free upgrade for my parents - thank you - they loved that!! But the Casino - Nothing terribly earth shattering.

The Reef Casino is just off the water front but the views from the room are wonderful, you look right over Cairns Inlet. You can watch the boats going to the Reef, the yachts off to the reef on private charters and all the trader boats and fishing boats going about their business. The Casino it self is as good...

Very laid-back, well appointed, friendly casino. Staff are excellent, drink prices are among the cheapest in town and the food is above average and reasonably priced. Plenty of tables at varying prices and of course heaps of machines. It's in a nice part of the city surrounded by parks and shops. I always visit when I am in Cairns....and will... More

Went looking for an entertaining night out with live music. Wernt disappointed. Good live band in the cocktail bar. Had dinner in the Flinders bar and grill and was pleasantly surprised by the prices and delicious meals. Don't gamble so weren't out of place.

Been in one Australian casino? you've been in them all.. nothing special, cheap meals, though not the best, reasonable drink prices and not overly busy during the week.

Not a bad casino that has everything a standard casino has, nothing to grab you so if you like a little punt go and enjoy otherwise give it a miss.

The place smells and they simply allow drunks in and people to yell and scream around the place - it's just not appealing at any level. It's not worth the bother / go get a local about 2 flys if you are desperate.

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.
