Situated on North Terrace in the heritage-listed Adelaide Railway Station building, the Adelaide Casino is the premier gaming venue in the city and the only licensed casino in South Australia. It offers around 90 gaming tables and 950 gaming machines, together with numerous bars, restaurants and private function rooms.
Operated by the Skycity Entertainment Group, the Adelaide Casino briefly changed its name to Skycity Adelaide, before reverting back to the Adelaide Casino. It spans three floors and has recently undergone a multi-million dollar refurbishment to improve facilities and overall ambience, including the redevelopment of its bars, restaurants and function facilities. The casino features the latest gaming technology, full TAB and Sports bet offerings, in addition to Sky Channel screened throughout, allowing patrons to follow live racing within the comfort of its lounges. The Adelaide Casino is home to Sean’s Kitchen, inspired by renowned Chef Sean Connolly’s New York Brasserie, together with Madame Hanoi, a French-Vietnamese Bistro by acclaimed celebrity chef Nic Watt. For regional produce, head to the 24-hour Barossa Cafe, opt for the casual atmosphere of Cafe Junction, or feast at the all-you-can-eat Fortuna Buffet. The casino’s drinking venues include the relaxed Oasis Outdoor Bar and the Grandstand Bar, with big screen TVs broadcasting leading sporting events, in addition to the chic Chandelier Bar which has one of Adelaide’s most impressive selections of premium spirits and local wines, coupled with live entertainment most nights.
The Adelaide Casino is located right next door to the Adelaide Railway Station, or there’s a tram stop on North Terrace near its entrance. There’s also a paid car park situated in Blyth Street just across the road from the casino and a taxi stand near its entrance.
The Adelaide Casino first opened in 1985 with 89 gaming tables, before being authorised to add video gaming machines in 1991 and poker machines in 1993. It was sold to Skycity Entertainment Group in 2,000 and is expected to increase its capacity to 200 tables and 1,500 gaming machines in the future.
