History and Development of Pokies in Fremantle

Fremantle is the port city of Perth, which is the capital of Western Australia. Things are a little different on this side of Australia, and whereas the rest of the country is obsessed with pokies and with gambling on the whole, when it comes to Western Australia you will not find any pokies outside of the Crown Casino in Perth. That’s not to say that this isn’t a good choice, and with over 2.000 pokies, including VIP and high-roller options, there is enough there to sate any gambler’s appetite.

Regular visits to a casino are out of the question for many, as these environments can be overwhelming. There are no cozy pubs and clubs that offer pokies though, and if you do find any in Fremantle then you should be cautious and aware that the establishment you’re in is breaking the law. Of course, there is always the comfort of your own home, and that’s where the joys of online gambling comes into play. Online gambling is perfectly legal in Australia, even in Western Australia, and there are hundreds of thousands of Aussies on online casinos (such as Royal Vegas, Platinum Play and Euro Palace) poker websites (such as Pokerstars and Full Tilt) and more. If this sounds like your sort of thing then your options are truly limitless, and you’ll run out of time long before you run out of websites to gamble on. If the online environment isn’t quite what you’re looking for, and if you prefer the thrill of live-action gambling and the social enjoyment it can bring, then there is still plenty to do.

In most cases you have to drive a little out of the way, as Fremantle doesn’t really have many gambling venues located within its relatively constrictive borders. In Cannington, for instance, which is located less than 30 minutes out of Fremantle, you can partake in some high-speed greyhound action at the Greyhounds WA Cannington. This racecourse is very popular in the local area and as well as a track that is frequented by some of the quickest dogs in the state, there are also plenty of betting terminals. Wednesdays and Saturdays are the best days to visit this venue and there are plenty of drinks and snacks available for relatively low prices.

Although not quite Royal Ascot, Ascot in Western Australia is also a must-see, with some fine horse races in a plush and posh setting that will remind you of the famous English event. There are plenty of drinks and snacks, and there are also three-course dinners laid out for those with a little extra cash to spare. There are also parties and events held at this course throughout the year, and although some of them can be a little expensive to get into, they are definitely worth the money.

If horse or greyhound racing is not your thing, and you don’t want to head out to the Crown Casino, then maybe a night-in would be preferable. At Ace Gambling Supplies, in Osborne Park, you can pick-up everything you need for your own casino night. As well as roulette tables and blackjack tables for hire, you can also order professional dealers and everything else you need to create a casino in your own home. There latest Shayari in Hindi are many tables to choose from and most budgets are covered, although these are luxuries and well-made ones at that, so don’t expect to get one for next to nothing. Ace Gambling Supplies even have their own Las Vegas style neon signs, so you can impress friends and party-goers with that extra touch of class.

Fremantle is a tiny town, serving as the opening to something much bigger and much classier. It’s a town that doesn’t have much in the way of gambling venues, but one with direct access to many areas that do. If you find yourself in town with little or nothing to do, then a night at the casino or the course — or even an equally exciting night at home — could be just what you need.
