How We Rate & Review Land-Based Casinos

Here are the main criteria our team of gambling experts go by when rating and reviewing a casino:

  • GAME VARIETY: There should be a vast selection of table and machine games offering generous payouts. Classic and modern titles should be available, and all gambling abilities should be catered to.
  • EXTRAS: Food and drink outlets, as well as transport and accommodation options, should all be easily accessible.
  • REWARDS: Loyalty programs help retain customers so they must offer generous bonuses, discounts and exclusive invites.
  • ON-SITE: Extra on-site entertainment is essential for much-needed downtime. This could include sports screenings, workshops and talks with gambling experts.
  • CUSTOMER SERVICE: Staff must be friendly, knowledgeable and eager to quickly and effectively deal with customer queries.

Our Verdict

(3/5)

This casino packs a punch for a small venue. Located in the heart of the city, it’s easy to access and there are plenty of surrounding hotels. There are nearly 100 pokies machines, 12 tables with all the classics and VIP rooms for highly-valued customers.

Weekly promotions are listed on their website and members will receive even more exclusive deals. The casino is open until 4am every day so we’d recommend refueling at the delicious on-site restaurant, Wild Thyme, before continuing your mission to score that big win!
