Where to find pokies in Newcastle
There are a number of venues around Newcastle, which is situated about 2.5 hours drive from Sydney, where you can grab a beer or a drink and insert a dollar or two to try your luck at winning big. Whether you are after a pub, club, bowling club, or hotel (which can transform into a nightclub) we’ve got all the venues which host pokies below.
Alternatively, you can find online pokies games on your computer or mobile available 24/7 at the leading casino sites listed in the table above, all of which are licensed and regulated Internet venues which allow you to play for free fun before putting down real money.
The best bet for a large assortment of pokies is the leagues clubs which are situated all around Newcastle. There are over 2000 poker machines available across these venues, and we therefore recommend visiting the following leagues clubs for the best hospitality and variety in games.
It is important to note, if you happen to live in a 5km radius you will need to sign up to be a member – if you don’t you will need to be signed up by a member (if your entire group are all out-of-towners you can either sign up as a member (for a fee) or ask someone to sign you in).
What’s more these venues are open until early hours of the morning so if you’ve enjoyed a nice dinner at a pub or restaurant nearby only to have it shut, you can venture on down to these clubs.
- Wests: The Wests Group own a number of clubs around Newcastle including Wests New Lambton, Wests Mayfield, Wests Cardiff, and Wests City (formerly Newcastle Panthers). Our favourite venue of the lot is Wests New Lambton, which offers an assortment of pokies lining the floors (as with the others) and there’s free coffee and hot chocolate from the nearest vending machines or attendants while you play. There’s also a number of bars here including the prestigious Marble Bar and a delicious chocolate fountain you don’t want to miss
- Souths Rugby Leagues Club: Located in the suburb of Merewether, just a short walk from the beach, Souths Rugby Leagues Club offers an assortment of pokies lining the floors, as well as a Sports Bar and Entertainment Lounge
- Central Leagues Club: Located in the suburb of Charlestown you will find an abundance of poker machines here, as well as live bingo every Tuesday and Thursday at 11am.
