The Poker Zone

Adelaide was responsible for bringing Texas Hold’em to Australia many years ago and has maintained the reputation as the traditional home of Australian poker. As such, there’s a designated Poker Zone that attracts poker players from across the globe. There are four variations of poker available: Texas Hold’em, Manila, Crazy Pineapple and Omaha. You can enjoy cash games or poker tournaments in the Poker Zone, plus high stakes Hold’em.

  • Sean’s Kitchen
  • Madame Hanoi
  • Barossa Café

  • Chandelier Bar
  • Grandstand Sports Bar

Adelaide Casino loyalty program

The Premiere Rewards loyalty program allows you to earn points for every dollar spent on games or at any of the bars and restaurants in the casino complex. It’s free to join and offers all kinds of discounts and members-only promotions, so is well worth signing up for even if you’re just passing through Adelaide. Premiere Rewards members enjoy EZYPlay cashless gaming, higher bet limits, bigger jackpots, discounts on merchandise, free parking (for Sapphire status members only) and exclusive food and beverage offers.

History of the Adelaide Casino

The Adelaide Casino opened its doors in 1985 under licensing by the state owned Lotteries Commission. There was originally 89 table games on offer and a few years later the inclusion of electronic game machines resulted in significant growth.

In 2000, the casino was sold to the SKYCITY Entertainment Group and officially renamed SKYCITY Adelaide. Since it first opened, the casino has undergone several major refurbishments and extensions.

Today the casino is still owned by SKYCITY but resumed trading as Adelaide Casino in 2009. With the new licensing agreement and subsequent renovations in 2014, the number of table games increased to 200 and electronic game machines to 1,500. The casino is now the 10th largest employer in the state, employing over 1,000 staff and contributes around $19 million in state taxes annually.
