South African Casinos and Entertainment Resorts

Being South Africa mainly known for its wildlife, shopping centres and casinos, I pretend to dedicate this thread to this latter. So please post here your photos or news of this theme.

ART DECO

It was meant to fit in with the city - that is why it is Art Deco...

very Miami...
Durban has the most and some of the best Art Deco buildings in South Africa & Africa...

however I am not 100% happy with Suncoast - it is not a must see international destination as the city wanted... It is the busiest casino in SA and probably the most profitable - but Tsogo has - I believe - underinvested in this stunning site...
