Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex is one of central features of the Southbank.
Apart from gaming floor, it includes two hotel towers, exclusive botiques, night clubs, top class restaurants, food courts and a cinema complex.
Each night hour there is a spectacular performance at the casino huge fireballs are loudly exhausted from the special columns. This may serve as symbol of money wasted by gamblers every hour.
