So disappointed to enter a casino on a rainy day and be told that it takes 15 minutes to process a players card. After saying no to waiting for the processing we discovered that the slot machines still use coins to dispense your winnings. Felt dark and dirty throughout only to have a coffee from the free dispensing machine spill... More

Exactly what you would expect from a casino in Cairns. Decent number of table games, slot machines, sports book, poker. Went here a few times during the weekdays - not crowded at all. Don't expect any social interaction with the dealers though. They look and act like they wish they were ANYWHERE else but there. Not exactly a welcoming staff.... More

If you are after entertainment and good eating places, then go elsewhere. This is typical example of most Australian casinos - no style or class at all.

It's a casino! What can I say? BUT if you become a member, which is free & only takes 15 minutes for them to print you a card. You can fill in your application & then pick it up later. Members are entitled to any main meal on the menu, at Flinders Bar & Grill, for $10, Mon-Wed. The meals... More

Some roulette on the go, tons of pokies, a bar and some pool tables. Pretty dated but a fun few hours in the evening once poker and other games start. Doesn't compare to Crown in Melbourne however.

This review is for Sam Powers, Master Illusionist, Beyond Limits. The show is located at the Hilton Hotel - not the Reef Casino. The dinner is for "Mondo's" and is fine - nothing great. The show is excellent. For those visiting Cairns, and looking for a fun, amusing and light evening, seeing Sam Powers is a treat, especially if you... More
