Poker faced - Hamilton Riverside Casino

Hamilton Riverside Casino Life in a casino is a heady mix of roller coaster ups and downs that only cease in those few hours a casino is shut. Hamilton Riverside Casino in Victoria Street Hamilton had its share of ups before the doors even opened for the first eager client.

Situated in the old Post Office, the interior dome was disconnected at the first floor level and then systematically inched with infinite patience, skill and care until it reached and was reattached at the second floor. Successful completion of this precarious and precision task was the first win for the casino.

A full interior and exterior repaint was called for as part of the development of the casino, incorporating Resene Limelock cure and seal on exterior plaster to protect against unsightly limestaining and improve painting efficiency then topcoated in Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic accompanied by Resene Zylone Sheen low sheen acrylic, Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic, Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterbased enamel, Resene Lusta-Glo semi-gloss enamel and Resene Aquaclear waterbased urethane in hues of Resene Kenyan Copper (rust brown), Resene Tea (river boulder beige), Resene Parchment (light beige), Resene Tapa (smoky grey) and Resene Bunting (dark blue) on an extensive range of interior substrates
