Alice Springs is the heart of Australia. The Aborigines are believed to have been here for more than 20,000 years. The scenery is mind-blowing and includes the iconic Ayer’s Rock.
In the middle of this former mining town is one of Australia’s best hotels and casinos – Lasseters. The award-winning venue has recently undergone a $40 million refit and is a state-of-the-art destination.
The casino is hugely popular with tourists travelling from all over Australia to enjoy a little action at the tables. Antes start at just a cent and table games in play include blackjack, roulette, pai gow, baccarat, craps, pontoon, and stud,
There is also a lively poker room with a full roster of tournaments, as well as a keno lounge and 22 screen sports bar with racing action and all major sports events.
Lasseters has a rewards program for regular players which gains them access to the casino’s Diamond Lounge, where private gaming, complemented with a food and beverage service, is available.
There are four restaurants on site, offering a diverse range of cuisines from tapas to Australian fare and poolside snacks. There is also an Ozzie-sized selection of drinking options (lots).
Lasseters bills itself as ‘the centre of entertainment’ in Alice Springs and few would disagree. It was good enough for Priscilla Queen of the Desert. If you’re passing through Alice Springs, drag up and have a spin in Lasseters.
The hotel is just a ten minute drive from the airport. There is an airport shuttle available – contact the hotel for more information. There are also four shuttle buses every day from the Alice Springs town centre.
