Gibraltar Land Based Casinos

gibraltar-casinosGibraltar is a favorite tourist destination and is well known for its nightclubs. Its only 2.3 miles in size and is wedged between Spain and the Mediterranean Sea. A British territory, its most popular tourist attraction is the Rock of Gibraltar.

But Gibraltar only offers one casino, the Gala Casino that is located in the trendy Ocean Marina area of the island. The Marina resort is a special duty-free zone that includes several hundred high-end condos, more than two dozen restaurants and bars and 323 berths for visiting boat owners.

The Gala Casino is the newest project for the Gala Group, which owns more than a dozen casinos scattered across Europe and Asia. This three-story casino and club includes 300 slot machines, nearly fifty card tables as well as roulette and bingo. It also offers Gibraltar’s lone legal sport betting establishment, where gamblers can put down a wager on everything from a World Cup Soccer game to American baseball and professional football.

The casino also offers a number of bingo games, many with prizes that includes new cars and credit lines at the casino. There are games throughout the day and special themed bingo games are played on weekends.

The casino building includes the Chargrill Restaurant, which specializes in steaks and fresh seafood. It also features a daily lunch buffet and a late night snack menu suitable for gamblers. The casino also has three smaller specialty bars as well as an ice bar.

Next door to the casino are several business centers including the four story Leisure Business Centre, which is a four-story complex that includes the regional headquarters of many well-known international brands. As a result, the casino floor can often be a mix of nationalities and languages.

Since it is the only casino in Gibraltar, the local hotels often offer special gambling packages that include a luxury suite, special access to the area’s many fine dining establishments as well as the ability to use the casino’s special VIP areas. These packages are very popular with European tourists who are looking a one-stop gambling destination that isn’t that far from their homes.

The Casino has just announced plans to build an expansion which will more than double its size. The sports gambling area will be enlarged so that they may offer a wider range of sports and another floor will be devoted to the bingo club, which is currently one of the most popular spots in the area.
