Spent a few days in Adelaide a few weeks back. Used to visit monthly 25 plus years ago for work & always loved the place - clean, easy to get around, good feel & a GREAT LITTLE CASINO. To be blunt it now feels like the whole place needs a good scrub. Stayed in a major Hotel in CBD near Rundle Mall. Could not believe the number of homeless folk everywhere - sleeping tough. The Casino was unbelievably bad - would not rate any better than an average Bowling Club in Sydney. The second floor consisted of a squillion poker machines - most of which would be better suited to a time warp. Bistro area disgraceful. Décor very dated. No one up there on a Friday night. The table activity was next to nothing & the bar areas full of undesirables that looked like they could not rub 2 coins together. To play the machines you had to get a plastic card to transfer your money onto. Slow & cumbersome. Come 1am Sat morning place was near on deserted. Maybe Xenaphon has had his way - not sure. If so, he should be happy with the result.
Seriously, those charged with running Adelaide over the past 20 years should hang their head in shame. Miles behind even Brisbane - & that's saying something !

Didn't Crown and Sydney kill off their casino?

The casino has gone downhill and it is pathetic IMO.
My brother has been working at this joint since it opened in 1985 and frankly I don't know how he would want to show up this place. 
I visited in January and July last year and summer is a big difference.
But in winter Adelaide is fugly.
It has gone to the pits. No craps table. What kind of a casino is this?
I think the RSL club in Cabramatta is a better choice. AT least you'll hear some good stories.
