It may appear to be a negative that Melbourne only has one licensed casino, however it would only be a person who has never been to the Crown Casino Complex that would think poorly of this fact.
As their slogan states, Crown Casino Complex is a whole world of entertainment. With more than 40 restaurants, over 30 bars a and a couple of Melbourne's better night spots, Crown can offer something other than gambling that gives casinos of old their reputation.
If the gaming is all that you are focused on then Crown has the best gambling floors available in Victoria. If you are the basic gambler looking to have a punt after a night out with friends then this is definitely the right place for you providing nearly all varieties of gambling from Blackjack to the horse races.
If you are the more professional gambler then VIP rooms and competitions are available at Crown and can be organized through the general manager of table games.
The best thing about Crown is that even after the food, bars and gambling, there is still more that the complex can keep offering. There is a Village Cinema and high end fashion for those who have a different idea of a day out.
In all, a great icon of Melbourne and located down on South bank, Crown is a fantastic place for all. Don't forget that magic slogan either and gamble responsibly.
