Free shuttle buses from the metro stations, good polite staff, not all of them speak English, but mostly they speak Chinese ))) only for foreigners: lots of Japanese, Philippians and Chinese people inside. Good poker room: 1-2$, 2-5$
Asian pacific poker tours - are held here

Came here as part of the 10 day layover on my way back to the US from the Philippines. As an avid poker player, I wanted to see the offering. Took the train to the local station and then a $5 cab ride got me here. You have to be a foreigner to come here, so bring your passport.

Casino is nice. Service was good, too. Poker room manager explained everything to me and was very helpful getting me into the game. Free food and drinks only for table games players, so if you want some free noodles, buy in for $10 at a blackjack table, ask for the menu, order something, and it will be waiting for you at the restaurant in 5 minutes.

Exchange rates suck, but you get the same rate both ways up to the amount that you initially bought. If you end up winning money, keep the excess and change it outside of the hotel.

Poker game was awesome. I played the bigger game and it was good action against weak players. I could make a living playing here.

Don't know if I will ever go back to Korea, but will go back here if I do.

The woman at the guest services counter and many dealers need to learn some basic manners and treat foreigners equally. Korean and Chinese people fight, yell and cuss, and it is tolerated. However, foreigners have been rudely told off and even told to leave on several occasions for the slightest excuses. They accuse foreigners of bad behavior that was never in fact displayed. This is a very bad reflection of Korea. It seems either the workers here are racist or have no basic professionalism at all. Too cowardly to tell off unreasonable customers yet taking it out on innocent scapegoats. U need to improve a lot to be on par with other Paradise entities. Management please do something about it.

As a non-Korean gambler, I have played at Paradise Walkerhill casino many times.

However, after today, I will no longer do so after their discriminatory practices.

First, they demanded that I must stay at the blackjack table for a minimum number of hands. Basically, over the course of two weeks, I had hot streaks and had the self control to leave the table on the positive side after these runs (and after tipping dealers). Then they instituted a rule and told me that I HAVE to stay at the table for a minimum amount of time. Even if I am losing, I have to stay a minimum amount. Or even if I feel like I have played enough and want to leave.

Refusing to agree to this (and not get cash back for my chips), they said that I could not open any blackjack tables. They said I could only play at a table that was already open, but I could only play the limits that they had. So despite the fact I sat down and there were 3 open tables, they "told me" what the limit was. That's it. No discussion. And despite the fact you are allowed to request deck type, they refused. Funny, there were no complaints when I lost big money last month.

Needless to say, I have fired off emails to the Korean casino regulators, where a casino is trying to force me to stay at the table.

I went here as part of my birthday weekend with a group of about 20 friends. It was a Saturday night, the casino was busy and we were all looking forward to a good night, and the casino should have been looking forward to making a tidy profit from us. As we were only playing low stakes roulette, we were first told we could only have beer as an alcoholic drink, despite them offering many other drinks. The service was extremely slow, and we were meant to feel almost embarrassed for ordering a drink.

We then went to play blackjack together at a table, with our friends watching on. We were on a good run and winning a decent amount together, having fun, high five-ing and generally enjoying ourselves on a Saturday night. As a result we were then 'cut off' from drinks, and were told as we were winning we're not allowed any more drinks. After winning a few more hands overall as a group, security surrounded our group, pit bosses all around us and surly dealer accusing us of cheating, despite us previously tipping her. We were told to be 'quiet' as we were clearly enjoying ourselves too much I guess.

Of course we lost a few hundred dollars between us, and some of us won a few hundred, but the overall experience left a terrible taste in our mouths and they've now lost a considerable amount of customers as a result.

AVOID at all costs!

Terrible staff attitude towards foreigners whom they don’t understand because the crowd is largely korean speaking Chinese. The staff are really rude and it was really bad experience to entertain guests or clients. Secondly the dealer Shin GoKyun would accuse you of something bad because he cannot understand English and accuse you to the manager. I knew this because I could understand korean too. Such a shame and liar.

Went to Paradise specifically to play poker so this review is only about that. They had a few tables going. Manager was friendly. The dealers were solid. And the drink service was really good. Not sure why so many low reviews about this place...
I played 1000-2000 KW Texas Holdem no-limit. All the players were friendly. English is the preferred language.
Great place to go for casual play on your trip. If you are looking for serious competition and big money, this is not the place.
It's easy to get to from subway via shuttle bus (Line 5 Gwangnaru stop. Exit door #2. Cross Achasan-ro street and walk 200 feet north. Look for brown Walkerhill shuttle bus sign). The shuttle also stops at Gangbyeon on Line 2.
One of the better poker experiences I have had across the world (despite getting felted by 8-4 offsuit by that Chinese guy who plays 100% and wins 99%! - you all know what I am talking about...).

Female dealers were Extremely unprofessional. Rude, not focused on their job but rather gossiping about other female customers. That’s really unprofessional behavior I have ever seen from casinos worldwide!

They also mumble and cuss at foreign female customers just because they think that they can’t understand.

I heard it all and was very turned off by this behavior.

Focus on your job!

The male dealers however, seemed ok except for one guy Choi Jinsung, who had a bad attitude problem too. He never once smiled and opens your cards even without your instruction. I could have made a complaint to the manager but was not bothered.

Buck up guys, foreigners are your clientele. And if you don’t enjoy your job, don’t make it a problem for customers.
