Games to Play
Casino Canberra is not like most of Australia’s gambling halls for one important reason – the complex is not allowed to host pokies, a traditional favourite game among Australians and international gamblers. Called slots or slot machines outside of Australia, the spinning reel games found in most casino gambling complexes around the world are only licensed for use in Canberra’s nightclubs, bars, and other retail locations.
The gambling floor at this casino is little more than 38,000 square feet, a large enough space for the inclusion of poker machines. Electronic gambling machines are available at the casino, though not licensed to host actual pokies. However, video poker and other skill machine games are on offer with a few hundred of them only.
