Christchurch Casino – New Zealand

New Zealand is world famous for its adventure sports: bungee jumping, white water rafting, zip lines, and a host of other adrenalin stirring sports are all waiting to take your breath away. For a different - more considered - thrill, there’s the Christchurch Casino.

When the casino opened in 1994, it was the first in the country offering gamers nearly 44,000sqft if gaming space, as well as three restaurants, two bars, and a nightclub.

The Grand Café is the casino’s showcase restaurant, offering locally sourced food to discerning diners. The Monza Sports bar serves up pizza, with a side order of live sports and betting.

Table games in play include blackjack, roulette, baccarat, money wheel, Tai San (Sic bo) and poker variants. At the weekend, the action starts on Friday and doesn’t stop until 3am Monday morning.

The Club Aspinall is an invitation only lounge and there is a Players Club for regulars with club days and exclusive events.

If you find yourself in the Southern hemisphere looking for a game of blackjack and the mind-blowing scenery just gets too much, the Christchurch Casino is a professional and honest operation that delivers on all fronts. See you on the other side.
