Much smaller and with a very different aesthetic than it's fancier big brother in Auckland. With very few table games and a small bar area, unless you're a pockie aficionado or a pocker star, I'd give it a miss.

Expensive, pretty crowded, so so food. Would not go again, but the views were very nice and worth the trip.

Very rude service. Machine ran out of coins took them awhile to top it back up. Managrment is very rude and the gaming floor security guard stood behind us watching us gamble. Madr us feel very unwelcomed. Would never go back. Dont waste your time going. You would have more fun at the pub.

Liked by Asian tourists, quite good location, but there are other ways to loose your money in this town

Very small casino, penny machines. You pay for your drinks. No big wins. Drinks were expensive. Not many choices for slot machines.

A small and not overly welcoming venue. Not many people and bored staff. It was hard to get involved and enjoy the visit. A small loss was not what mattered rather the need for staff to get us involved and be involved. A short visit not really recommended unless that is your burning desire.

We popped in to have a look and what struck us was the friendliness of all the staff. The main gaming tables are there, but were closed at the time of our visit. Plenty of Poker Machines if you feel like making a contribution. The bar has a good range of wines by the glass, including some of the better... More

It is a small casino. Decor is minimal. Not lively. Staff is not necessary welcoming. Dealers do not interact - we just found one dealer who kept it lively but all others are just straight faced

Having come from Australia and seeing several casinos, not only as attractions but to gamble, this casino is exceptionally smaller than its sister casino in Darwin Australia.
