SkyCity Casino Hamilton

SkyCity Hamilton is the only casino in the Waikato and has long been a favourite entertainment venue for locals and visitors alike. What a great night out: Drinks, dinner, a show, then try your luck in the casino! 

Open 24 hours a day, SkyCity casino provides a fun place where you can party any time of the day. There are all manner of traditional table games like Black Jack, Roulette and Baccarat. With 23 gaming tables you can also try something different with Caribbean Stud (which is poker vs the dealer, not other players). There are also 330 gaming machines which will keep you entertained for hours.


As with most casinos, food is a big part of the appeal. For those who want the best deals, then head up in the daylight hours (or even breakfast time) to take advantage of the vast selection of food, at discount prices. If you are planning a special night out, then there are 2 restaurants in the Casino.

Rebo Restaurant and Bar offers a la carte dining in a contemporary setting. Dinners are from 5pm till late. Rebo is also open from 11am daily for brunch and lunch. Silk Restaurant is a new restaurant offering authentic Asian cuisine. Offering most types of ethnic cuisine from Indian dishes to Chinese to Malaysian. Silk has amazing decor that really complements to food well.


When it comes to night life (or just a quiet afternoon drink) there are 4 places to sip and relax. Vue Bar is where all the action happens with live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. From 9 pm, top entertainers will lead the fun until the small hours. The large balcony is great for watching the hum of the casino. Sunday afternoon also offers live performers for a relaxing Sunday excursion at Sky City.

With views overlooking the Waikato River, Zone Sports Bar is a great place to have an afternoon drink on the 35m wide Balcony. Zone has 5 massive plasmas TV screens which makes it the perfect place to watch the big game. Zone has special student nights and quiz nights during the week.
