However, while it is the only casino in the state to hold a table game license, the Adelaide Casino delivers a high-quality experience as if they had dozens of five-star competitors in the local area.
Formerly the Skycity Adelaide, the Casino sits on the northern edge of Adelaide's city centre inside the railway station, a heritage-listed site constructed in 1856. Be sure to read our review highlighting all of the casino's great offerings, as Adelaideans and visitors alike have plenty of reasons to plan a visit to the Adelaide Casino.
With two huge floors devoted to gambling, it's a guarantee you'll find something you enjoy playing at Adelaide.
About Adelaide Casino
With two huge floors devoted to gambling, it's a guarantee you'll find something you enjoy playing at Adelaide. The casino offers nearly 1,000 different gaming machines in denominations ranging 0.01 to 1.00 AUD. Many of these titles, such as the large-payout Fort Knox, are linked jackpot machines meaning payouts possibly as high as six figures. There are also nearly 200 special machines in the casino's Barossa Room, where players with certain levels of rewards status (see below) can relax and play in an exclusive setting complete with private bar and priority service.
If you'd prefer to try your hand at table games, Adelaide offers 12 different popular games for you to choose from. Card sharks can get in on blackjack, Caribbean stud, and poker (including regular tournaments in the casino's Poker Zone area) while those looking just for more games of chance can enjoy baccarat, roulette, and big wheel. Also offered is Sic Bo, a simple Chinese dice game in which you predict and wager on what numbers will come up on three rolled dice.

Named for world-renowned chef Sean Connolly, Sean's kitchen is by far the highlight among several dining options at the Adelaide Casino. Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, favourites among visitors include the duck liver parfait and brioche, king crab legs, and the duck fat chips. This all comes of course with a comprehensive wine and cocktail list while sitting under the historic and original railway ceiling.
Connolly isn't the only distinguished chef to have set up shop in the casino. Celebrity chef Nic Watt's Madame Hanoi espresso bar and bistro is a French-Vietnamese inspired culinary adventure. In addition to the shared Vietnamese dishes you'll find French pastries and a solid wine list. Elsewhere in the casino is the Café Junction, a spot ideal for a quicker Aussie-style meal or a grab-and-go sandwich from the deli.
