The casino itself lacked a bit. It's mainly pokies with a few tables. The upstairs bar however has a small cinema for sports (and free movies on Tuesdays). It also has a pool table and a free coffee machine. It's well worth a visit if you're looking to have a cheap afternoon out. $2.50 min roulette (double zero) which made... More

Keen Wanderers fans but no Foxtel at the hotel- try the Reef Casino big screen in the sorts bar, theatre set up, comfortable seats, good atmosphere with drink holders. Order a burger to enjoy the game over, just like home but bigger screen.

Myself and a few friends ended up here on a Saturday night after doing the rounds of the CBD bars/pubs, and I was pleasantly surprised. Besides the perfectly controlled A/C it's a nicely appointed premises, you don't wait long to get a (fairly priced) drink and there's plenty of casino games to play, or watch live sports in a dedicated...

We loved going to the Casino, the staff were very welcoming & invited us to become a member - free of charge which allowed us to buy meals for $5-00. The meals were excellent value e.g. barramundi, chips and salad, roast pork and three veggies and gravy. You can't beat that.

When you want to be spoilt rotten this is the way to go. The rooms are fabulous and the service is outstanding. Highly recommend an upgrade to a better room to really make you feel like royalty.

My fiancée and I were on vacation in Cairns when we discovered this place. It was lots of fun but the casino rules are a bit different than other places in the world . Especially blackjack. But besides that it was a lot of fun.
