Gaming at Casino Oceanus:
Casino Oceanus being a dedicated Casino game room floor, it’s only natural that being as large and opulent as it is, it comes with an impressive game selection. The selection isn’t the only perk to it’s dedicated spacious game room floor – there are plenty of table games and slots available so you’re never stuck waiting for the next game. The Casino is rather large in an impressive manner to say the least considering it’s designation as a casino with no hotel accommodations – it’s roughly 400,000 square feet with three stories to it’s massive game room floor. Casino Oceanus is after all, a dedicated casino making it’s size all that much more impressive – although patrons will find a few luxury and designer brand name retail shops here on the property. The primary focus of the Casino Oceanus is gaming however, and they do that with great success we must admit. We really enjoyed our time gaming here at the Oceanus to say the least.
Fun Fact – If you happen to be coming to Macau via the Ferry, Casino Oceanus will be the first casino you encounter as you come into town as it is literally at the boarding entrance for the Ferry Terminal! This convenient location wasn’t just coincidence, it was an intentional decision as SJM intended to keep this casino focused on the mass market primarily for those tourists coming into Macau for the casino entertainment it offers! Macau really does do casino’s and gambling better than any other place in the world – the location of Casino Oceanus is nothing short of pure brilliance when you take this into account.
There is of course mass market gaming galore here at Casino Oceanus, as well as VIP rooms and tables for more high-stakes exclusive gaming. In total there are 569 gaming machines and 269 table games available here at this large-scale casino venue. The game selection here as we’ve mentioned is quite extensive and that’s no exaggeration. Just to show what we mean, here’s a comprehensive list just to show what we’re talking about here:
- Slot machines
- Video Poker
- Pai Gow Poker
- Pai Gow Tiles
- Caribbean Stud Poker
- Casino War
- Electronic Tables
- Sic Bo
- Three Card Baccarat
- Fish Prawn Crab

Dining at Casino Oceanus:
Dining at the Casino Oceanus isn’t a main focus of the venue of course. However, there is an upscale restaurant inside, serving fine cuisine and taking reservations, open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Treasure House, found on the first floor, serves traditional Hong Kong Style Cantonese cuisine alongside barbecue and roasts. It’s a great place to eat, and it’s 24/7 operation makes it a great place to sit down for a meal after a long night gambling and drinking.
Casino Oceanus is a luxury standalone casino, opened on December 8th 2009, owned by SJM Holdings and a part of the Stanley Ho group. When we visited Macau for the first time we actually weren’t aware of this place, but we stumbled upon it by chance while exploring Fisherman’s Wharf for the first time. Fisherman’s Wharf is home to some of the biggest and best casinos in Macau such as The Babylon Casino, The Sands Macau, and Casino Golden Dragon. The casino’s official name is Casino Oceanus at Jai Alai Macau. It’s vibrant underwater “bubble” architecture makes it a rather difficult sight to miss when in the area, its a rather large structure right on the water. The bubble’s constituting it’s unique architecture light up in an array of vibrant colors at night creating a truly beautiful sight to see. The beautifully unique architecture owes it’s design credit to world renowned casino designer Paul Steelman, who is responsible for some of the best designs in the casino industry.
This casino is a standalone casino outfit with no hotel attached, but fortunately there are plenty of hotels nearby if you plan on staying here at Fisherman’s Wharf (which we recommend as it’s home to some of our favorite casinos in Macau). If you’re looking for a room in the area you could book at the Casino Golden Dragon or the Casa Real Casino & Hotel, both of which can be found just a block from Casino Oceanus if your on a budget. However, if you want to sit in the lap of luxury while you explore the Fisherman’s Wharf region, we strongly encourage staying at The Sands Macau, or the The Babylon Casino. All the hotels we’ve recommended are a short walk from the ferry building and Casino Oceanus so you don’t have to walk far.
