As is now standard in most venues, you can also buy insurance against the house hitting Blackjack if the circumstances allow.
Roulette is available in electronic form at the Adelaide Casino.

There are ten different electronic roulette machines to choose from, too, so you’re unlikely to struggle to find a place at one of the tables.
It’s the slot machines that tend to dominate proceedings at Adelaide Casino with numerous games on offer from all around the world. Other than that, it’s just the standard casino games mentioned here that you’ll be able to play.
Aside from the slots the biggest appeal at the Adelaide Casino is its poker.

They take their poker seriously here, so there’s also a poker league that you can get involved with if that’s something that interests you.
Bars & Restaurants
It’s not that there is a bar or restaurant, per se, but there is an area where you can watch live sport on three large TV screens. There’s also the ability to get some refreshments if you’re enjoying your gaming experience too much to want to leave. Both snacks and drinks are available.
Are you over eighteen? Do you have a valid photo ID such as a driving license or passport? If so, then you’ll be able to get yourself membership to Sligo’s premier casino without an issue. In fact, the management reserves the right to grant you temporary membership even if you can’t find a valid photo ID, so smile sweetly and be nice and you never know. You do need to be over eighteen, though, that’s a deal breaker, and you must be a member in order to enter the casino.
At the time of writing, there’s no player rewards scheme on offer, but that could change at any time. If this is something that really bothers you, then mention it to the team and they’ll let you know if there are plans to add one in the future.
The Adelaide Casino can be found in the Southern part of Sligo, on the South side of the river. If you like a landmark or two to let you know where you’re heading then it’s a matter of minutes away from the Quayside Shopping Centre and, funnily enough, the Quayside itself. Depending on how quickly you walk it’s around five minutes away from Sligo Town Hall and the Yeats Memorial Building.
Should you be the sort of person that likes to use public transport to get around the place then you’ll no doubt be delighted to learn that Sligo Train Station is just a short walk from the casino. Both buses and trains stop there, though the Magheraboy / Spar Opposite Sligo Bus Station bus stop is even closer. Sligo / Sligo Depot bus stop is probably less than a minute from the Adelaide Casino on foot, too. In other words, there are loads of options for your journey.
