The Canberra Casino is a large but stylish gambling house, suitable for both high rollers and more moderate players. Its central location, the gaming action and the excellent restaurant make it an ideal destination for a weekend with friends. Canberra can boast the first legal casino in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), and actually the only traditional gambling site. Here you can find table games with stakes as low as $1-$5, where you can play Blackjack, Roulette, Pai Gow, Mini Baccarat, Money Wheel.
Although there are no slot machines, you can play poker starting from low stakes and also experience Canberra Poker, a unique variety of the game, similar to 5 card stud: you play against the house with 5 cards face down, while the dealer receives 4 cards face down and 1 card face up. You then play traditional hands, with the addition of big jackpots. Another good reason to visit the Canberra Casino is the restaurant, which is very popular and gets booked out soon, so better reserve a table in advance.
