What about the VIP room? Do you need a special membership?

Are you simply giving a report of the game there, or asking something about the game? Seems like an oddly poor game to have on a CS...
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

@1BB They have two VIP areas; one for Ďmediumí rollers (Barossa Room) and another one for whales. (Grange Room)
Both have restrictions for entrance but as a part of promotions you might be able to access the Barossa Room.
Here is information about the Barossa Room: https://www.adelaidecasino.com.au/casino/gaming-machines/barossa-room/
Here is information about the Grange Room: https://www.adelaidecasino.com.au/casino/vip-gaming/grange-room/

As a part of a promotion I was able to access the Barossa Room. I asked to look at the Grange Room and the answer was no. But a dealer and a supervisor told me about it and it was what you would expect; higher table limits, etc.


@Romes Itís just a report. Iím sure it will benefit a few people. I will add to it at a later date as I plan annual visits to this casino. I will cover more of their games as I get to know the place.

What do you mean by CS?



CSM is the continuous shuffle machine that you described. Are they ShuffleMaster one2six? How do you know how many decks they use?

Do the VIP rooms offer hand shuffled games?

Hi Petro

Please excuse a non-BJ question: do they have video poker on the gaming floor?

Cheers

@1BB ďAre they ShuffleMaster one2six? How do you know how many decks they use?Ē
I donít know what brand of shuffling machine they used. I can find out next time I visit which will be in about 9 months. A pit boss told me that they use 4 decks.

ďDo the VIP rooms offer hand shuffled games?Ē
I saw shuffling machines in the Barossa Room. Itís logical to think that itís the same in the Grange Room.


@uranium235 No, they donít have any Video Poker except for one Wild Card 2. Wild Card 2 appears in IGTís Multistar games. I havenít calculated the return of Wild Card 2 but I guess that it is around 90%. I will probably find out its return next time I go.

I done a survey and asked the casino to get in some VP. Unfortunately, VP is not as popular here in Australia compared to America. I think itís unlikely that the Adelaide Casino will get any VP.


@FleaStiff Those games are on the casino floor.


DISCLAIMER: I donít want to get in trouble with any of you guys if you go to this casino. I only go there because itís really close to me (3 and a half hour drive.) But, my initial impressions are its pretty tight. For example; with the basic slot card offered at the Adelaide Casino you need to wager $6 to accrue 1 comp point which is worth only 1c. That is the worst reward scheme I have come across yet and Iíve researched 6 different slot clubs. The average slot card gives you a 0.5% return on your slot play, whereas at this casino it's only 0.167%.

Adelaide casino has gone to the dogs, you now have to pay for a cup of coffee while say betting $50 or $100 minimum per hand in the new Baccarat pit. Apparently the catering manager had his budget cut, so now you can wager thousands, but still have to pay $2.50 for a coffee, the water (from a tap), is still free.

In the Grange room, they will freely get any patron pissed, but you have to pay to eat (they will deduct points if you have them), you also have to sign agreement that you are prepared / willing to lose money while gambling. It must rank as one of the tight-fisted casino's down-under.

How old is the casino? I remember being in Adelaide with a friend who lived there back in early 1992 and asked if I wanted to go to "the casino", and apparently I was the first of her friends who ever said "no".
