Jupiters Hotel and Casino was Queensland's first casino and hotel complex, which is located in the suburb of Broadbeach on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. The casino is situated next to the Nerang River and is operated by Echo Entertainment Group. It is connected to the Oasis Shopping Centre via a monorail.

One per cent of the casino's gross gaming revenue is deposited in the Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund. This fund was established in 1987, supports non-profit community based groups and is administered by the Government of Queensland.[1]

The seven acre complex includes 8 bars, 7 restaurants, conference facilities, a ballroom, theatre, health spa, gym and a monrail which connects the property to the OASIS shopping centre across the road.

Major renovations

The complex underwent renovations in 2006. A$53 million was spent on refurbishment of the casino.[2] The two gaming floors are now one and the size is just over double of what it was. Level Two is now the brand new Gold Club room. A new restaurant, balconies and two new bars were included in the renovation.

By 2008, all 442 hotel rooms were completely refurbished at the cost of A$16 million.[2] The Hotel Front Office, Lobby Bar were also renovated.

In late 2010 TABCORP announced that A$350 million would be spent on refurbishing the casino. There would be another 6 restaurants added past Spinners restaurants current location. There would be a night club built over the canal with a party pool. The hotel pool would be refurbished to VEGAS standards with an A La Carte restaurant and private Cabanas. The main gaming floor would increase at least by 50%, there would be a well known spa added and a sushi/ Asian teppenyaki restaurant.

Theatre

A performance by Malina Moye

Jupiters Hotel and Casino has a theatre, named Jupiters Theatre. The total capacity is 1138 seats with wheel chair seeting also available. New shows were produced every year, with a selection of different acts. As of 2008 Jupiters has ceased producing shows inhouse and has opted for securing international shows such as Mother Africa, ABBA Revival, Burn The Floor, Dance of Desire, STOMP and many moore. At times throughout the year Jupiters plays host to a number of celebrities which often play outside of JUPITERS THEATRE. These performances are usually seen in the Atrium area, in between the ATRIUM BAR and SPINNERS RESTAURANT.

Some of these acts have included:- Pauline, Ariel Angels, Local Australian Bands and Artists etc.....

Controversy

Jupiters Hotel and Casino is perhaps best known for an event in 1995 when then Brisbane Broncos Rugby League player Julian O'Neill urinated on the carpet under a black jack table on two separate occasions.[3]

Both Jupiters Hotel and Casino and the Treasury Hotel and Casino in Brisbane were used for money laundering by welfare recipients on behalf of organised crime syndicates, from May 2006 to November 2007.[4]
