About Lasseters Casino
When you're ready to hit the casino, you'll immediately notice the overwhelming selection of table games, the largest in the Northern Territory. Offered are all your standards like roulette (American), blackjack, baccarat, craps, and some less common games like pontoon and Caribbean stud. If you'd prefer to play against other casino guests as opposed to the dealer, Lasseters offers a variety of options for poker players. Their Texas Hold 'em games are usually no limit and with buy-ins ranging up to $200, while Omaha has a similar buy-in range and usually played with a pot limit.
The electronic gaming machine, or pokie, selection is no less impressive. With over 300 different machines from a variety of manufacturers, you are bound to find one that suits your mood and betting style. Also offered in the casino is Keno, as well as UNITAB facilities where you can wager on both international and domestic sporting events.

Whether you're looking for coffee, cocktails, or a la carte, Lasseters eight restaurants and bars will satisfy any craving. Splash is the poolside smoothie and coffee café perfect for after a tough workout or relaxing swim. Something a little stronger can be found at Tempo, the new wine and cocktail bar that also specializes in tapas.
Speaking of food, Tali offers its take on modern Australian fare (with a hint of the Outback) from 6am-11pm daily. A homage to Central Australia, inside you will find décor and artwork from and inspired by the region. For something a little more casual, we recommend the Juicy Rump steakhouse or the Sports Lounge, both of which feature giant TVs (including an 103-inch plasma at the Rump) showing live sport.
