Christchurch Casino Review

When all else has closed, make your way to the Christchurch Casino for blackjack, American roulette, baccarat, and gaming machines. Open 24 hours over the weekend and until 3 a.m. Monday to Thursday, there's a contemporary restaurant and three bars. The latest additions to the Casino are Mashina and the Monza Sports Bar. The latter is a dark, blokey space with TV monitors at every vantage point plus one huge screen for watching live sports. Notoriously strict on its dress code the casino has relaxed a little since the earthquake and now allows dress jeans. Free shuttles go to and from some local hotels and motels daily from 6pm to 2am—book through the Casino reception.
