Frontier Inn & Casino
Port Elizabeth is the home of the Frontier Inn & Casino, in which many winners are made every day and fun is par for the course. With a theme that is reminiscent of an old-fashioned town, the hub offers a fully modern experience, not just on the casino floor but in everything it does. The hotel, the entertainment centre, the food court and the bars are all modern in that they can provide for your every need, and they really go out of their way to do just that. Just a 50km drive from the border of Lesotho, the casino is in perfect position if you are en route to this small yet majestic country, but even for those who want to stay for the weekend, it offers luxury and fun.
The casino, like the entire centre, is a small one but has enough games to offer those who want to play a solid and enjoyable gaming experience. With just nine tables and 140 slots, it provides an intimate setting for players hoping for a win and its VIP lounge, the Salon Prive, is the perfect place to spend a little more, and receive more luxury in return. For frequent visitors, the Winners’ Circle programme allows you to take advantage of loyalty points which can be redeemed for more rewards and prizes, and which allows you to take part in the many promotions the casino runs on a regular basis. The betting limits are relatively low on the slots, with a maximum bet amount set at just R25, though the wins are very large.

The Coachman’s Saloon is a place you will not want to miss after you’ve enjoyed some time on the casino floor and promises live shows every day of the week as well as a number of themed nights out, such as sports nights and ladies nights. For those looking for something a little simpler, there is also the Golden Gate Spur which has the best burgers in town as well as brilliant breakfasts and lekker lunches. Both smokers and non-smokers are welcome and can be assisted in the different areas, but if you don’t want to sit down, and simply need a meal on the go, the food court is the place to be. Now for something fun… if you’re gaming and don’t want to leave the casino floor just to satisfy your cravings, you can simply order directly from the wait staff on the floor, who will get your food to you quickly.
The accommodation provided by the Frontier Inn & Casino is just as great as all of its other facets. There are 21 rooms to choose from, all comfortable, and those who need them will find that there are ample eating options, entertainment facilities and room service. Should you book a stay, it is also worthwhile to speak to the reception desk in order to find out what historic sites are worth seeing in the area and what there is to see.
