“Reminded me of a Sydney RSL Club”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

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.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

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.

“Just a casino”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

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.

“Drab and small without much charm”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

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.

“Casino lovers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

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 expect in a Casino food and drinks are slightly expensive. Nice cafe in the foyer.
Good fun but you must have the control of your mindset, if you cannot control your temptation try not to go there.
