A woman has allegedly drugged a man she met at the Darwin casino before robbing him.

Northern Territory police say the woman, 38, befriended a male patron at StarCity Casino on June 29 and they went a hotel where she spiked his drink, before stealing his bank cards, identification, phone and cash.

The woman was arrested on Wednesday morning at her home in Wulagi, where police seized various stolen property, along with a small amount of white powder believed to be methamphetamine.

Numerous transactions made on a stolen credit card amounted to more than $1300, police said.

The card belonged to another man the woman had allegedly drugged.

A police spokeswoman said it's not yet clear how many other men may have fallen victim.

The woman was charged with drink spiking, drug possession, stealing, unlawfully possessing property and 17 counts of obtaining a benefit by deception, and will appear in the Darwin Local Court on Thursday.
