Crown Casino: Jewel of Melbourne

After hosting a friend of mine from Down Under last summer, I decided to take up his offer of a reciprocate visit and flew to Australia last month.  After landing in Melbourne and trying to survive on opposite seasons, opposite time zones and strange accents, I finally got my bearings and after three days I was ready to hit the town.  Luckily my pal knows exactly how to push my buttons and took me to the gambling jewel of Melbourne – Crown Casino.

So first of all, here are some facts.  This is the largest casino in the Southern Hemisphere, and I felt quite proud to claim the honor of playing at this location.  The casino is stretched across 220,000 feet of gaming floor and is considered one of the most popular gaming destinations in the world.

I’ve played at some of the best casinos, but this one takes the prize!

So here are a few of the many things I loved about Melbourne’s Crown Casino:

  • The entrance.  Just one word is enough. Wow!
  • Over forty different restaurants and eateries.  In the three days we spent at the casino, I think I tried out food from practically every corner of the globe, I could have still kept going!  Unfortunately, the waistline started to show the results and I had to stop….
  • Three world class hotels – the Crown Towers, the Crown Metropole and the Crown Promenade Hotel.  The hotels are stylish, luxurious and make you feel right at home.
  • More than 30 bars where some of the best action in Melbourne’s night life takes place.
  • Shopping, shopping and more shopping.  When I told my better half that I was under one roof with the world’s best brands to my east, west, north and south, she nearly hopped on the next plane to join me!  I loved French Connection, Guess, Peter Alexander and lots more….
  • The casino.  Hell, what can I say about this place?  Thousands of amazing slot machines, over 300 table games, such as blackjack, roulette and craps, and interactive touch screen games such as Rapid Roulette and Rapid Big Wheel.  I honestly felt that I had died and landed in my version of heaven.

Thanks mate!
