Be aware that in the event of two related players (husband and wife, brother and sister etc) being seated together in the seat draw, we will manually move them before play commences. Accommodations will be made for players with special physical needs.
Is the tournament wheelchair accessible?
Yes, the whole of Circus Casino Star City is wheel chair accessible.

There are lots of places within 2 minutes walk of the casino to get food, including Subway, McDonalds and KFC. We will also be serving valet food throughout the tournament and for players with more time on their hands, have a good restaurant within the casino. There are also a number of restaurants within the Star City complex.
