Shaken or stirred?

We found the best Dirty Martinis.

What’s better than sitting back, relaxing and watching the cash roll in while playing our Dirty Martini pokie? Doing all of that, while enjoying an actual Dirty Martini cocktail.

First invented in Hollywood in the late 90’s, the cocktail was created after some female movie stars wanted a version of the Dry Martini that wasn’t as strong and had more of an olive taste. Bartenders altered the recipe which produced a new concoction called the Dirty Martini.
