Grand West Casino and Entertainment World is an entertainment complex owned by the Sun International Group. In line with the latest trend, it offers far more than just a casino. There is a four-star hotel, an ice skating rink, and an entertainment area that contains fairground attractions such as a rollercoaster, merry-go-rounds, go-kart racing, mini-golf and, for the PC generation, banks of video games.
For those who prefer passive entertainment there are cinemas, a dance club and a live music venue with a jazz flavour. Numerous restaurants and pubs dot the complex and there is a creche so that parents can take some time off to enjoy everything on offer. There are a variety of shops - among them clothing and jewellery shops, a tobacconist, a bookshop and a sweet shop.
The design theme captures the vintage days of Cape Town's past, with building facades reflecting traditional Cape Town architecture. The casino itself is of late Victorian design, and boasts over 60 tables offering blackjack, American roulette, Raise 'em Poker, Punto Banco and 1750 slot machines, including African themed slots such as African Express.
The slot machines are smart-card operated for ease of use and additional safety. There are prive sections of the casino, allowing high-rollers to play tables as well as slots on a 24-hour basis.
GrandWest Casino has become one of South Africa's most visited casinos, benefiting from Cape Town's reputation as an international tourist destination. It has played host to an estimated ten million visitors since opening.
