Crown Perth Casino in Western Australia is the only casino gambling centre in the territory. Crown Perth, which used to be called Burswood Entertainment Complex, is the only resort area in WA that’s licensed to provide table games, poker, and certain types of electronic gambling machines.
ANZAC Day is a time of respectful commemoration for all Australians. To protect the solemn observance of this day, trading hours for licensed venues are restricted on the morning of ANZAC Day. This restriction achieves a balance between the commercial interests of. ALDI - Casino, NSW - Trading Hours & Store Details. ALDI can be found in a convenient location at 139 Centre Street. Christmas, Easter, Anzac Day 2019. Please note: public holidays may cause revisions to the typical business times for ALDI in Casino, NSW. In the year 2019 these updates include Christmas, Boxing Day, Good Friday or Labour Day.
The state of Western Australia is large – the biggest non-nation territory in the world. Making up a full third of Australia’s land mass, Western Australia is made up of more than 2.5 million square kilometres of land, most of which is arid and uninhabitable desert space. As of the last census, 2.5 million people live in WAS, most living in or near the territory’s capital city, Perth. The Crown Perth takes its new name from the capital city, though the complex is actually located on the Swan River in Perth’s suburb of Burswood.
Crown Perth, operated by Crown Limited, is a hotel and casino resort complex that’s outside Perth’s city limits but connected to that city’s central business district via a public railway system, several roads, and multiple methods of mass transit. The entire complex is made up of the large casino area, two different hotel properties, a convention and business centre, restaurants and bars, and a large indoor theatre called The Dome with room for 20,000 guests.
The casino itself is open twenty-four hours a day except when the entire complex closes on Good Friday, Christmas Day, and Anzac Day. The gambling area, around 60,000 square feet in total, is divided up between a section set aside for table games, a poker room, and an area for some electronic gambling machines.
Unlike most of Australia’s betting venues, Crown Perth does not have a license to provide pokies. The government of Western Australia has outlawed poker machines, known as slot machines in the rest of the world. Instead, the casino’s electronic gaming machines are styled after video poker and other games where player skill plays a part.
A large group of electronic machines for gambling made up of around 2,000 different titles is available, but don’t expect to find traditional reel-spinning pokies. Instead the titles include electronic portals for keno and other casino games and skill games. These are similar to hybrids of table games and unique versions of video poker style machine gambling. Wager sizes allowed on these games range from AUD $0.10 up to the high-roller titles available only in the casino’s invitation-only VIP area. In that section, machine games like video poker are available at bet sizes into the hundreds of dollars per outcome.
The casino also has a small keno lounge adjacent to the sports bar attached to the gaming floor. This keno section is open around the clock with games available in a variety of bet sizes, as low as AUD $2.50 per wager. The keno parlour contains both standard table keno variations and electronic games with touch-screen portals that are based on standard keno rules.
Head-to-head poker rooms are not as common at Australian gambling halls as in other parts of the world, but Crown Perth has an area of the gaming floor set aside for cash games and tournaments twenty-four hours on weekends and eighteen hours during the week. The poker variant played most often is Texas Hold ‘Em. Poker players can participate in the casino’s weekly No Limit Hold ‘Em tourneys with buy-ins as low as AUD $50 and play in ring games from noon to 6 AM during the week or all day on Fridays and Saturdays.
The smaller buy-in games take place on Wednesdays during the casino’s Big Wednesday Beginners’ cash tournament. The Wednesday tournament is limited to the first 220 entrants. Fans of Omaha can sign up for Pot Limit Omaha Thursdays with an AUD $120 buy-in and a starting stack of AUD $3,000 in tournament chips.
Table and VIP Gambling Options
The balance of Crown Perth’s betting is split up between varieties of table games, with twelve tables operating at any given time. The casino’s table game list includes several versions of blackjack, roulette played on both American and European style wheels, a large group of electronic style classics in the Rapid series, like Rapid Roulette, Rapid Money Wheel, and Rapid Baccarat, mini and standard baccarat tables, casino-style poker (Casino War, Pai Gow Poker, Texas Hold’Em, and Caribbean Stud Poker), Two-Up, and Sic Bo.
For VIPs and special property guests, Crown Perth’s Pearl Room is where high roller and private gaming tables are found. (See our page about high roller pokies for more information.) The space is located above the main gaming floor and gives high rollers a big view of the city skyline and the nearby riverside. Every table game open on the main floor can be found here (except head-to-head poker games) with betting ranges larger than the options in the main rooms. The Pearl Room and other VIP options are by invitation or arrangement only; gamblers in this section are expected to place bets at a minimum of AUD $50 per round, except for a handful of video poker and other machines with slightly smaller minimum wagers. Private game hosts and concierge services are available, as is complimentary drink service. Guests at the Pearl Room must be members of the Crown Club, the casino’s rewards program which is free to join and is used to track gambler action to hand out comps and other gifts.
The site’s two hotels – Crown Metropol and Crown Promenade – offer both high-end and standard rooms, luxury suites, and spa facilities. The Crown Promenade is designed as a business hotel, with convention facilities, meeting rooms, and a larger number of guest rooms. The Metropol is the more expensive site with fewer rooms (around 100) and more modern accommodations. Both hotels are home to a number of bars and restaurants representing different world cuisines, including buffet-style meals, food and drink for casino customers (located on the gambling floor), and two signature restaurants for fine dining.
