5 best casinos in the Caribbean

By 05 May, 2023

While there’s plenty of fun to be had playing at home on online poker sites, casinos have such an air of mystique and glamour that traveling to a new location to experience it all simply can’t be beaten. We’ve had a look at some of our favorite locations in the Caribbean.

Baha Mar – The Bahamas

Marketed as the largest casino in the entire Caribbean, Baha Mar, is stocked with a near infinite amount of table games (around 18 different types), at least 1,000 slot machines, and countless other avenues to gamble on.

This idyllic setting is situated within the capital city of Nassau with beautiful verandas of the turquoise waters below. Of course, you might want a small break from the gambling. The company owns and operates the connecting Baha Bay which is a luxurious water park which is designed to delight.

The resort boasts a very serviceable golf course which guests can use as part of their stay and even is set to host Pro-Am tournaments in 2023 and beyond.

Club Jamaica Gaming Lounge – Jamaica 

Another gambling venue with no shortage of space is Club Jamaica Gaming Lounge based on Runaway Bay. This place is all about entertainment with multiple events taking place on the premises including live music, dancing performances as well as card tournaments for budding players.

After all that excitement and after you’ve played at the extensive casino, you can always unwind on the infamous rooftop bar with a cocktail or take in some of the sunshine.

Atlantis Paradise Islands Hotel – The Bahamas

Based on Paradise Islands just off the mainland of the Bahamas, the Atlantis hotel offers its guests and patrons quality experiences, think Las Vegas style with a Caribbean beach.

Within the resort, there are multiple places to gamble with the primary casino, the Cove which specializes in blackjack games, and the Sea Glass bar, ideal for beginners. First-time visitors can take advantage of multiple deals usually dishing out a few free chips to ensure new players don’t lose too much on their opening few hands.

Casino Metro at the Sheraton San Juan Hotel & Casino – Puerto Rico

Advertised as over 23,000 square feet of pure entertainment. This place on Convention Boulevard has over 20 tables playing games like blackjack, roulette, and even dice.

Another great point about this destination is that is very well situated within San Juan, ideal for holidaymakers who want to do sightseeing around the infamous cobbled old town, the Condado tourist area, and the Isla Verde area.

This place is famous for offering lots of great weekly promotions to incentivize different games. More recently the casino has been trialling a new bingo-style game which has become very popular with the punters.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Punta Cana – Dominican Republic 

Looking for some rock music and general debauchery to accompany your gambling experience in the Caribbean? The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana is the place for you.

This is a place for pure hedonism and enjoyment with exhilarating nightlife options throughout the resort. The Casino complex is known for high-stakes tables and multiple ways to play your favorite card games including simulated video machines. If you don’t want to spend too much money you can always have a go on the penny machines too!The chance to travel and try these new experiences really can’t be passed up if you have the budget, but you can also recreate some of the glamour at home through legal online poker sites for now.
