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.

Staying in a hotel just across the street from the casino, we couldn't not venture in and take a look. Although not being particularly casino enamoured, we both fell in love with the Reef casino due to its size, welcoming staff and free facilities. Lots of tables/machines for those who want a flutter, with a selection of cafes/restaurants/bars and lounges... More

The casino is walking distance to everywhere, close to kids playground and restruants,beach etc. We had a family room which was absolutely beautiful. The downside was it was quiet noisy at night as we found out we were close to the night club. But we ended up getting to sleep with the loud music as I thought I was young... More

Tacky casino aimed at locals and tourists. Not much to recommend it. Is located at bottom end of esplanade and more fun to be had walking up and down the esplanade

Couldn't,t get over how quiet it was. Popped in for a drink and hardly anyone there. Had a couple of cocktails reasonably priced. Not much excitement.

Its a pretty little casino with friendly staff and most of the games that would entertain the average punter, but for a Poker player it is very disappointing. The tables only open and night and do not stay open long enough to get a good run. I can sit at a table for hours without hardly playing a hand and... More

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...
