Wrest Point Casino & Hotel REVIEW

Wrest Point Casino & Hotel Review

Wrest Point holds a special spot in Australian gambling history as the country's first legal casino. It's almost hard to fathom, but there were no licenced casinos in Australia before the Hobart property opened its doors in 1973. In fact, you can thank the early success of Wrest Point for giving rise to casinos across the nation. Yet Wrest Point Tasmania is more than a footnote, it's a fabulous entertainment destination. While there's plenty of action in the boutique casino, why not take in a show, relax at any of the four bars, or take in the gorgeous view? With five great restaurants on site and 269 hotel suites, it's easy to pamper yourself. Wrest Point is undoubtedly the best casino in Tasmania.

The Roulette Experience

Wrest Point not only offers both American and European roulette at a variety of stakes, but there are multiple ways to play the game. Players can enjoy conventional roulette tables staffed by expert croupiers at a wide variety of stakes. Table minimums typically start at $10, but you can place bets as low as $2.50. Like most casinos, the stakes shift to meet demand but you can head to the VIP area if you have the budget to match.

The casino also offers rapid roulette, which adds a bit of technology to deliver the game at higher speeds. Rapid roulette let you place your wager on an electronic terminal rather than at a physical table. All you have to do is make use of your own personal touchscreen. The best part is that there's a new game every 40 seconds, which means more spinning and less waiting around. The rules are the same, except you don't have to worry about keeping track of your chips or mastering the etiquette of the game. It's also wonderful if you want to avoid the crowds, are playing for the first time, or don't like the stakes at the standard tables.

The staff at Wrest Point are always friendly and helpful. If you have a question about roulette etiquette or need a refresher course in any casino game, all you have to do is ask. Keep in mind that if you are looking to play roulette in the afternoon, the tables open at 2 pm. Rapid roulette is available daily starting at 1 pm.
