Casino Canberra Review
Casino Canberra is located at 21 Binara Street in the Capital City of Canberra, ACT, Australia. The European style gaming venue opened in 1994 but was purchased by the Aquis Group in 2014 and was closed for a $14m makeover and celebrated its relaunch on June 9, 2016. There are currently no slot machines or "pokies" but in May of 2016 the ACT Government agreed on a proposal which includes as many as 200 slot machines or pokies. Currently, you will find 45 gaming tables and a the Lotus Room, whcih includes a dedicated poker parlor with 6 tables and a sports bar. There are bars and restaurants and due to the central location, there are plenty of choices for accommodations located nearby, some just steps away.
The casino is open to players 18+ and offers gaming from noon to 4am daily.
