Not only in Las Vegas, Monte Carlo, Atlantic City and Macau you can go for a bet. Also in our own capital Amsterdam it is good to stay if you want to go to a casino. In the center but also in the vicinity of Amsterdam there are several casinos where you as a player can try your luck with the various gambling games. Amsterdam is a versatile city where you do not think of gambling at first. Yet you can easily lose your egg if you want to gamble a game in a casino.
Most casinos in Amsterdam and surroundings are gambling halls. These gambling halls are not allowed to offer games with a dealer but only the slot machines and the automatic roulette wheel. It may sound less interesting, but what is striking is that these kinds of things do their extra best to spoil their guests. For example, the entrance to a gambling hall is always free and there is often the possibility to have a snack and a drink free of charge. The Holland Casino is of course also located in Amsterdam and will soon open a new branch in Amsterdam-West. The other casinos are gambling halls such as Casino City, Play-in, Carousel, Novoplay and Merkur. These casinos offer you the opportunity to have a nice evening out with friends or acquaintances.
At the Jan Evertsenstraat in Amsterdam we find the Casino City. This is one of the larger casinos that we find in our capital. Inside, the case looks good and, partly because of the interior, you certainly feel that you are in a casino. There are several branches of this organization but especially Casino City at the Jan Evertsenstraat is worth a visit. This is mainly due to the atmosphere and how you are treated as a customer by the staff.
Near the central station of Amsterdam you will also find a casino within walking distance. On the Prins Hendrikkade you will find the popular Play-in. This is a long and narrow building that goes far back. Here too, the atmosphere is always good and you feel like you are coming across someone's home. Because the building is narrow and the facade is not very talking, the casino is often overlooked. Perhaps the owners could take this into account during a subsequent renovation.
At the Damrak we find several casinos. The most famous casino is probably the Carrousel. Here you can go to play roulette or you can sit behind one of the many slot machines. It is often very busy here and the chances are that this is the busiest casino in the Netherlands. At the Damrak we also find the casinos of Novoplay and the Macau Amusement Palace. These are in the neighborhood of the Caroussel so definitely worth a visit if you are already there.
Like Las Vegas
The American city of Las Vegas is known for its Strip with its adjacent casinos. Also in Amsterdam there is one street where several casinos can be found. The contrast is perhaps a bit big, because the Strip in Las Vegas is almost 7 kilometers long. In Amsterdam we find 5 casinos on the Reguliersbreestraat. Here are two Flash sites, Lucky Jack, another Casino City and finally Merkur. The latter has been named several times as the best casino in the Netherlands.
The most famous casino chain in the Netherlands can be found in two locations in Amsterdam in the future. You can soon visit Holland Casino in Amsterdam West but for now you can go to the branch in the center of the city. Here you can join different table games such as American roulette, blackjack, punto banco and poker. You will also find a wide range of slot machines at Holland casino and you can enjoy a snack and a drink while you are playing until late at night.
Well worth it
If you want a day out or a weekend with friends, then it is advisable to visit the casinos in our capital. For a night out the visit to a casino is definitely fun and if you then also go home with a profit, the evening can not go wrong. As you have read, you can go to many different places in Amsterdam if you want to take a gamble. Always play consciously when you go to a casino and carefully handle the money you want to play with.
