“New Years eve 2012”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I attended the Dirty Dancing show last night 31 Dec 2012 and was very concerned at the lack of crowd management /control after the show. There were far too many people in the Montecasino complex and there was a distinct danger of a crowd crush where people could get injured. On a night such as new year's eve there needs to be some form of cover charge to limit the number of patrons. Also there needs to be some form of minimum dress code. There were patrons at the restaurants dressed in slops and shorts, and then these same people attended an International theatre production in the same attire..this is unacceptable. Not a very good experience and we were lucky to get out of the complex by 23:15 without injury.

“gambling”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Atmospheric, but not many winners. Place normally full of guests.
casino floors busy and sometimes over crowded with people playing on more than 1 machine. Machine tend to take long to pay out. great place to have a drink and meal.

“Always a winner!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We visited Monte Casino on New Year's eve and decided to go early to have dinner and a movie. Fortunately for us because when we left the cinema the place was packed. Everybody in a good mood awaiting the New Year. It is a great place, much to do and something for everybody (gambling, movies, games arcade, ten pin bowling, lot's of coffee shops and restaurants etc). I am always amazed at how clean the place is despite the large number of visitors. The Skoobs Theater of Books is our favourite shop. The coffee is excellent and then they have a very good and interesting collection of books with comfortable chairs.
