This place is big and the games are everywhere. Its no different to other casino's and the odds of winning are also not different. Expect to lose and you wont be dissapointed.

I think they have far too many slot machines, although the place rocks on Friday and Sat nights with hundreds of people playing slots so i guess they have established that that number of machines is required to meet the demand.

The premises are fresh, well airconditioned and the service staff are nice.

Security people are your typical rude chip on their shoulder didnt make it into the police force types.

Favourite game = Craps

Often forced to visit because of dinner engagements in very good restaurants that are around the casino but the casino itself is huge and gross.

I hate gambling & the atmosphere it creates so it was not a pleasant experience. What is it with casinos, they just lose me. The eating places on the water are good but why bother handing your money over when you can donate it to a worthy charity for a good cause.

Really, what can I say - If lights and glitter are your thing, you'll probably enjoy the casino. The whole structure and establishment is designed to remove money from you (admittedly in a fairly fun way). There are better places to visit within an easy walk. Dine on Southbank, and take a stroll through to see the sights, but any serious vist will leave you poorer. Long queues for any reasonably priced food are all the worse for seeing diners eating comfortably in extremely expensive restaraunts. Lots of gloss and (faux-)glam, but not much to back it up. Visit if you are wealthy - then it will support your needs and jump to serve you - otherwise wander through to see how the magazines say we ought to live :)
