С 19 по 28 февраля (это даты WPT Russia) живая музыка будет играть 19, 20, 25, 26 и 27 февраля. Играют классические всем известные мелодии вроде «Don’t worry, be happy», а выступление сопровождается небольшой шоу-программой. Подпевать, как указано на сайте казино, не запрещается. Начало каждого живого концерта в 21:00, вход свободный (но от 18 лет).
Остальные мероприятия пройдут в расположившейся в нескольких метрах от казино WOW-Арене.

If you travel by train, your terminal – Adler railway station. Then you need to take the “Lastochka” train.
The comfortable “Lastochka” train departs from Sochi and Adler train stations, and also the Sochi Airport, and terminates at either the Esto-Sadok station. Please note that the train’s schedule varies depending on the season.
The Casino is two kilometers away from train stations and can be reached by taxi or bus #105, #105с and #135.
If you travel to Sochi Casino by personal car (or you rent a car) you need to go to A-149 “Old Krasnopolyanskoe highway” or “New Krasnopolyanskoe highway” and move 42 kilometers to the resort “Gorky Gorod”, then turn left onto Kashbaza street and go straight.
The old road is more winding and goes past the airport and through the villages of Krasnaya Polyana and esto-Sadok. That new road is Expressway, built for the Winter Olympics 2014 and it will take you to the resort faster. But be careful, the drivers often overtake on the opposite line and not respect the speed limit, although work in the area of the camera.
