Once on the casino floor, players will be dazzled by the over 2500 slot machines that whirr and sparkle, ring and pay out in seemingly orchestrated time. There is nothing as thrilling as the site of so many slot machines, with so many different themes, payouts and bonus features, just waiting to be explored.
The wide variety of slot machines incorporate traditional three reelers, video slots and video poker, with game denominations beginning at just 5c and rising up to R100.
