I actually haven't spent much time in the casino area itself but I love all the restaurants and activity that goes on here, one of my favourite places in the city at night. A bit on the pricy side but there are cheaper options as well for food. There are a couple of clubs upstairs that are ok, not the type of music I'm into but most people seem to enjoy it. It's really beautiful to sit outside along the river looking out over the city especially at night. There is also a cinema and a gamezone area for kids so people of all ages can enjoy themselves here.Recommended for:

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.
