I had to wait for a boat to arrive from Green Island and so I decided to spend some time at the casino. It was very beautiful the entrance all that art work. I also was able to take in the Dome wildlife tour and witness all the acitivities done by kids and even grown-ups.

Thank Nicholette R

Casino's aren't built to make gamblers rich but they are a great place to visit and relax if you set a limit and stick to it !! This casino is really relaxing, plently of gaming machines to choose from and some do actually let you win a little !! We stayed over the road at the Pullman International so it was just a short walk to get there. The Reef Hotel, which is part of the casino complex, is also a great place to stay - we did that last September and would definately stay there again the next time we visit Cairns !!

This is a very nice, clean casino, where there is no smoking allowed except in designated areas. The machines have a wide variety of pay options, but most are basically the same type of game.
Only recognized a very few of the games of the slots. The payouts were on the low side however.
But, a good way to spend the day......

Worth a visit to just see the entrance with floor and large pillar showing computerised ‘living display’ of reef fish. Kids (as well as ‘big kids’ (i.e. adults) can be seen walking on the tiles and watching the ‘fish’ darting away from their feet as they walk. Had meal at the Chinese Restaurant in the casino and found it reasonably good value for reasonably good quality meals. Casino has a zoo on the roof with live Australian native animals, including koalas, an albino kookaburra and 4 metre salt water crocodile. However, I feel that the zoo component is quite expensive and aimed at tourists with its pricing.

The casino was right across from my hotel so checked it out a few times. If you are American and reading this, you will likely be disappointed. Pay-outs are small and there is not a big selection of slot machines; at least not the familiar games from Las Vegas. But, it is easy to get a slot machine. I went on a Thursday afternoon and Friday night and had no problem getting a machine. There are quite a few blackjack and other table games. Staff is friendly. No free drinks while you play.
