“A beautiful sight at night!”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

We love to go to casinos. Many of our trips have included visiting local casinos. Well this one isn't exactly local for us - but we didn't want to miss it on our vacation. The actual tower reminds me of the Space Needle we have in Seattle. We had dinner at the deli. Tried to go to the buffet but they were all booked up for two and a half hours! Who would have thought there would be reservations for a buffet? We played the slots for a couple hours and found that there were many machines that we have at home, and a few that were different. By the time we left, the place was really humming with people. It is quite the nightlife place here. I'm sure we will go again before we head home. Even if you don't gamble there is plenty of people watching you can do. The atmosphere was fun and food at the Deli was good also, and huge portions for a reasonable price. We had enough left over for a whole other meal, but didn't want to carry it around with us.

“360 degree revolving restaurant on top”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Family dinner extraordinaire with our daughter and son-in-law, splurge drinks, apps and in no hurry at sunset. We missed the Casino and chose not to bungy jump on full stomachs, save that for our next trip back.No one can make only one trip to New Zealand it lures you to come again and again.
Among our most special places on Earth !

“Plenty of options for gamblers and non-gamblers alike.”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

SkyCity Auckland is New Zealand's largest casino. It features lots of eating and drinking options at various price points and formality levels, and two hotels which are decent choices for CBD visitors. "Enhancements" such as double-zero roulette wheels and "Blackjack Plus" are creeping in, and are best avoided while you still can. Blackjack with fairly standard rules can currently be had from a $20 minimum on the main casino floor, and the poker room, which offers tournaments and cash games pretty much every day (check the website for the fine detail) is now centrally located next to a bar without too much intrusion from the slots.

The adjacent Sky Tower features a couple of upmarket dining choices, some options for the adrenaline junkie, and certainly the best view of Auckland short of a helicopter!

“Seen One you have Seen them All”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Same Same but in a great location. Very clean I might add. It didnt seem to have much to it but at the same time its worth a look. The cafe - 'DEPOT' opposite was brilliant.
