Unlike Las Vegas, the Bahamas have a lot more to offer than casino gambling, though they have that, too.
Sensitivity is not the same as in Vegas – it is subdued and more tourist-y at the same time. For one thing, residents of the Bahamas are not allowed to play, so you can never make sense that you are in a completely open place, as you do in Nevada.
Nor is it action almost as fast, though it is polished. You rarely see anyone with the sweaty-eyed, up-all-night look, so common in Vegas.
Roulette is played just like in Nevada, with the double-zero wheel. Blackjack is a little harder here, though the rules vary from casino to casino.
When you have spent all your gambling money, or are tired of the indoor atmosphere, get your strength back on one of the glorious beaches.
There are more casinos in Puerto Rico than in the Bahamas, but the action is even more humid when compared to Vegas.
A big part of the reason is that drinking and playing are not allowed to mix in Puerto Rico – you can not take a drink in any of the game rooms. The dress is formal by Nevada champions: Cap and tie for players, tuxes for dealers.
Once again, blackjack rules are less favorable to surpass players on the continent and craps slightly different table odds odds and also offer so-called “six big” and “eight big” bets. However, they are pollon bets.
The odds are even worse in Puerto Rico. For the really compulsive gambler, there is a new disadvantage: casinos close at 4 am
Actually, most people do not like to play in the wee hours of the morning, but twenty-four hour action, although snoozing with it, makes Vegas a more exciting place.
If you are going further afield for your gaming pleasure, you will probably wind up up to Monte Carlo eventually. Unique in many ways, Monaco has the distinction of being the only place where the whole country is in the tourist trade.
Actually, there are now two casinos in Monte Carlo. If you have made a bet on Monte Carlo, there is room for tourist gamblers. And, of course, there are also private rooms, where high stake games light up to 2 am, relatively early closing hours for a European casino.
The casinos on the French Riviera have lately drawn a lot of attention, far away from fabled Monte Carlo. The luxury of these resorts is not outdone from any playground in the world and that includes not just the casinos – both public and private – but the beaches, shops, restaurants, entertainment, sports and so on.
None of the European casinos offer the odds to bet on sports, as they do in Las Vegas. In fact, you’ll have a hard time finding someone in a casino of Monegasque or French speaking English at all.
Be sure you understand the house rules in these casinos before you start playing, or get them straight with the casino chef, who will have many languages ??at their command, often.
