Adelaide has a rich poker history and was responsible for introducing Texas Hold’em to Australia’s shores more than twenty years ago. Adelaide is still regarded by many as the ‘Traditional Home of Australian Poker’.

Playing at The District Poker 

The District Poker is located on the north western corner of level 1 @ The District. 

The District Poker offers two ways of playing poker – tournaments and ‘cash’ or ‘ring’ games. The basic difference between the two is that players may get up and leave a cash game anytime they like but will need to play a tournament out to a conclusion to win a prize.


No Limit Texas Hold' em tournaments take place in The District Poker each Tuesday with buy-ins starting at $200. Registration for all poker tournaments is via The District Poker Cashier, located next to The District Poker on level one.

Get in to SkyCity to play the biggest game in town with:
 •  $10,000 guaranteed prize pool
 •  $200 buy-in
 •  20-minute blind levels
 •  $30,000 starting stack
 •  $5,000 early bird bonus for players registered prior to 18:45

Freeze Out Tournaments
