There are also seven tables, offering classics such as blackjack, roulette, midi-baccarat, Caribbean Stud Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’Em. The staff are eager to help players and impart knowledge. There’s a less hurried atmosphere due to the casino’s smaller size, meaning you must adjust to a slightly slower pace, which is never a bad thing! Find your preferred casino game, kick back and enjoy the ride.

How We Rate & Review Land-Based Casinos

We want you to trust us so when we rate and review a land-based casino, so here’s what we look at:

  • GAME VARIETY: The games are the essential component, so we make sure there’s a varied, high-quality range for all ability levels.
  • EXTRAS: There need to be adequate food and drink outlets, as well as nearby parking, accessible transport and accommodation.
  • REWARDS: We look for a decent loyalty scheme or members’ club that appropriately reward faithful customers.
  • ON-SITE: We look at what else is offered to you on-site in the form of entertainment, such as sports bars, workshops or talks.
  • CUSTOMER SERVICE: Staff must be friendly, proactive and efficient.

Our Verdict

(3.5/5)

Gamblers will enjoy playing in SkyCity Wharf’s intimate surroundings as the atmosphere is calmer, but not so calm that you’ll lose that all-important adrenaline rush. There are 74 games machines - progressive jackpots included - and seven tables with classics such as blackjack. You can also sign up to the SkyCity Premier Rewards Program and earn prize-redeemable points as you play! Refuel at the delectable on-site Waterfront Bar and Bistro, taking in the stunning views of the surrounding mountains and lake. Top that all off with dedicated staff, accessible transport options and accommodation, and you’ve got everything you need for a grand day out – especially if you get that big win!
