SkyCity Casino Auckland

The Skycity Entertainment Group is the largest operator of casinos in New Zealand. As you will see in this article, the company owns several casinos in various places in the county. If you are going to gamble at a casino in NZ and end up at a Skycity casino, you are sure to have ended up at a legit establishment.

Skycity in Auckland is one of the more impressive casinos in New Zealand. It is open seven days a week, has over 2000 gaming machines and many table games in both open areas and VIP areas.

There are also a lot of other things you can do at Skycity Auckland. You will also find the Sky Tower in connection to the casino, where you can try out the “SkyJump” and “SkyWalk.” Besides, you can enjoy a great meal at one of several restaurants.

Christchurch Casino

The Christchurch Casino is, as you could probably figure out from the name, located in Christchurch. This casino isn’t quite as big as Skycity Auckland, but it offers the same variety of games and a few restaurant options.

What separates the Christchurch casino from many of New Zealand competitors is the establishment’s new arena for e-sports.

SkyCity Casino Hamilton

With 330 slot machines and 23 table games, Skycity Casino in Hamilton is smaller than both Skycity in Auckland and Christchurch Casino. Still, you won’t have any trouble enjoying yourself at the casino.

Apart from gambling, you can also have a fun time bowling or trying out the X-Golf Zone simulator. There are also a couple of restaurants and bars for you to explore.

Dunedin Casino

When it comes to pure gambling opportunities, the Dunedin Casino isn’t the biggest of casinos. In contrast to the other, modern-looking casinos on the list, the Dunedin Casino does, however, offer a different kind of vibe.

The building, and the decór inside, has that luxurious and classic casino feel that makes the mind wander to classy casinos, such as the Casino de Monte-Carlo in Monaco.

SkyCity Casino Queenstown

The Skycity Casino in Queenstown is the smallest casino on the list, but it will still fulfill your basic gambling needs and provide you with some decent food and drink options.

When you and your friends travel to New Zealand, go ahead and do all the bungy jumping, visit the Lord of the Rings shooting locations, and do all the other traditional activities associated with New Zealand. But don’t forget to explore the cities and different casinos as well – you won’t regret it.
