Arrived to be advised you had to pay 25euro to join/register. Asked was there a reason for it - couldn't even come up with an excuse, "house policy" was what I was advised. At least have the brains to say application processing fee etc. However, once signed up they advised you get 25e worth of chips you can use. Went... More

I found the door staff to be very rude. They seemed to have some notion that it's an exclusive place but anyone can join... Nice place otherwise

Working in the gaming business for an online operator we took to the casino to show what the appeal and buzz is all about. The first impression is that it's a very clean and organised establishment and the croupiers are absolutely amazing. As some of our group were unaccustomed to the games the croupiers went above and beyond teaching the... More

Mostly my idea because I love cards and she loves watching :) The Greeter/Door Manager was most helpful, especially when he said I didn't look my age.. which starts the night off right. :) Once inside, the floor manager came right up and offered his assistance,...

A big thank you to Maureen who helped me organise the night and who was so helpful on places to go before the casino and how to organise our evening.
