RICHES APLENTY

One of the biggest entertainment complexes in the country, Gold Reef City has a uniquely South African spirit. Just eight kilometres from the centre of Joburg and built over an old gold mine, this property offers world-class facilities and all of Jozi’s cosmopolitan buzz. Aside from gaming, take in a show at the theatre or experience the thrill of the rides at the theme park. You’ll also find a choice of hotels and restaurants on offer for longer stays.

FOR THE THRILL OF IT

Equipped with more than 1 700 slot machines and the latest video games, you can seek your fortune for hours. Table game lovers are also catered for with a total of 51 tables, including baccarat, blackjack, roulette and poker. Check out the old-school charm of Barney’s Smoking Casino. Or, for an even more exclusive experience, head to the updated Salon Privé, designed with all the glam of the turn-of-the-century gold rush. The privé area has its own entrance and includes a reception, lavish lounge and private gaming rooms.

HUB OF ACTIVITY

Now home to a satellite studio of popular radio station Kaya FM (95.9), this entertainment complex has its finger on Jozi’s pulse. The Entertainment Zone boasts the unique Victorian train station-themed Movies@ cinema complex, consisting of six state-of-the-art theatres, a Magic Company arcade, 12-lane bowling alley, Kiddies Express crèche, the 400-seater Gold Rush Spur Steak Ranch and a fast-food court.

A MATTER OF TASTE

There’s a feast of flavour on offer at Gold Reef City. If it’s elegant dining and live music you’re after, book a table at Back o’ the Moon restaurant. For coffee and everything in between, trendy Vigour & Verve comes out tops. The new Calisto’s Portuguese Restaurant, The Raj Indian Restaurant, Ocean Basket or the revamped Boston BBQ Buffet are all great options for a family treat.
