The Crown Casino and Hotel is right near the Yarra River in Melbourne, next to the river promenade, with hits shopping and restaurants. This part of Melbourne reminds me a lot of downtown Chicago, with its tall buildings, river, and well organized layout.
The casino itself is not quite like the mega-casinos on the Las Vegas strip, but it is good sized and by no means a small operation. Table and card games are popular, and the local historical wager of One Ups is still popular. Last time I was here there was only 1 Craps table, a game that hasn't caught as well with Aussies due to its complex nature and learning cure, so you'll find at least 50% ex-Pats and US visitors hanging around the Dice. I and another American got quite lucky here a few years ago, turning hundreds into thousands, so this lone table will always be dear to me.
