The casino gets a failing grade

By johnboy - 2 March 2009 26

The all seeing eye has noticed an outsider’s view of our casino:

    the Entrance of the casino was sooooooooooooooooooooooooo superrrrr ??? can!

    gosh. unlike the grand entrance of Starcity… Casino of Canberra.. look.soo.. dodgy!

    even the carpark is rather empty! gosh!

    i was still worried that i wld gt lost coz i forgt to bring my phone.

    we took like 10 mins to find the stupid entrance. – which is very far away frm the carpark .. n hidden!


    n.. the.. casino.. is.. a freaking… conventional hall!

    seriously! .. tts it????

    OMG. ONE barrcarat table!!! TWO pontoon table… n 2 blackjack tables.. some poker table. n erm. some other random tables. TTS ABT IT!


So is it just what one would expect for a city of 300,000 people who are mostly able to figure out the odds of winning in a casino?

What’s Your opinion?

I knew it… confirmation that this site is racist!

So this is how people communicate with each other now?

Yep. If they match your singlet.

Will the Casino let you in if you are wearing thongs?

I’m guessing that the database backing RiotACT is set to USASCII or similar. Anyway yeah the Canberra Casino is pretty damn unimpressive. Can’t really imagine James Bond dropping by.

Yeah it is pretty average. But damn, reading that was painful.

no to mention the service at the casino is a joke.. looks like the guys workin behind the bar have had one to many joints before work. it takes like half an hour for them to get through 10 people..

I contributed $200 to the cause.. wasn’t even offered water. Yup, nothing like losing.. and getting a parking bill, just when you thought you had left the scene of the crime.

Or my mac doesn’t.

Oh well.

I agree. The casino here is an absolute joke!
I would love to see it renovated and made a little more exciting.

The ??? in your quoted section are ???, Jb.
Google Translate says they’re Chinese for inconspicuous.

Semi-literate is being a little generous I reckon. They are right though, it’s not much of a casino. I don’t mind visiting the odd casino when travelling, our own is probably the worst I’ve been in.

Pommy bastard 1:52 pm 02 Mar 09

Anyone stupid enough to want to visit a casino, and especially someone who writes semi-litetrate screeds like the above, well… ” a fool and his money….”

What did he expect – Monte Carlo? Sun City? Vegas?

It’s Canberra – we like our casino to look like a library!
