Desert Palace Casino
Like most South African live gambling establishments, Desert Palace Hotel and Casino is about much more than just gambling. Sitting in the heart of the Kalahari, Desert Palace is truly deserving of its name. It is aiming to be a destination where guests can relax and be entertained by a friendly and properly trained staff, and where the true beauty of the desert can indeed be enjoyed. As a retreat of tranquility and peace, the establishment comes complete with a three-star hotel, which offers its guests lavishly decorated rooms, oozing an atmosphere of rest and relaxation. The hotel also has a pool area, which is indeed a welcome site of refreshment and regeneration in the middle of the torrid desert.
A total of 120 guests can stay at the hotel, which offers 60 rooms, each and every one of them complete with its own bathroom.
The Casino is the focal point of the entire establishment. Offering 165 gambling machines (this includes slots as well as video poker), 7 tables and a bar, the casino is indeed a dream come true for the road-weary gambler. All Desert Palace Casino games operate without coins, which means added security for players as well as a much more convenient way to gamble.
Players can pay upon entry and their funds are instantly loaded onto a card which they can carry around the casino and stick into various machines to play. There’s no need for players to stuff coins into slot machines, nor are they forced to wait for a jackpot payout.
Extra security is provided through PIN number protection. The stakes on the gambling machines span from 2c to R5.
There are 7 tables for games like blackjack, roulette, Texas Holdem and generic poker. There are a total of 3 blackjack tables and 2 roulette ones. The casino staff will gladly introduce beginners to the various games, so no one should feel intimidated in any way in this casino.
Besides the casino, the complex boasts a variety of other entertainment facilities too: there’s a golf course, an amusement center, a squash club as well as a terraced garden.
