The GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World – South Africa

The GrandWest Casino is the biggest entertainment complex in both Cape Town and the Western Cape. The deafening ring of more than 2,500 slots combines with the hubbub of nearly 100 table games to create an unforgettable atmosphere.

The complex also includes a luxury hotel, several restaurants, a huge 5,000-seat arena, and more bars than you can shake a mint julep at. For younger clientele, there is an ice skating rink, a bowling alley, a cinema, and play areas.

The casino has all the usual games, including roulette, blackjack, blackjack switch, punto banco, easy and stud poker. It has also recently introduced a new game called GranDice which is similar to craps and based on a local street game played in the early 1960s.

For poker fans, there are ten tables offering non-stop tournament and cash game action. There is a high-end Salon Prive for loyal members and high rollers. There is also a smoking area available, for the nicotine-loving player.For poker fans, there are ten tables offering non-stop tournament and cash game action.

The complex is huge and dining options include Chinese, Italian, North Indian, steaks, burgers, chops, and fresh fish. Drinkers are well served with dozens of bars, including Jackson Hall - a New Orleans style cocktail bar and the Alabama Sports Bar.

It’s a cliché but the GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World really has got something for everyone. From blackjack and a live concert to a bucket of KFC and a pina colada, you will find it all here.
