Casino Dominicus. Gambling in The Sun, in the Carribean and in Dominica.

Posted on November 12th, 2012

It’s around this time of year, when the nights are really starting to draw in and the days are grey and gloomy, that our thoughts start drifting down to testing out some of the casinos in the Caribbean. Sun, sand and slots, in other words, although we tend to spend more time on the tables.

Sure, Vegas is great, but can you go for a scuba dive in the desert? We rest our case.

Casino Domincus

The Casino Dominicus has the highest table limits in Dominica

We’ve already talked about the Atlantis Bahamas in another post (a fine venue). And in this post, we are going to look at the Casino Dominicus in The Dominican Republic.

If you want to go to the Dominican Republic and have a flutter, you have only one option in our opinion and that is the mega casino that is the Casino Dominicus.

This casino is huge: there’s a 45,000-square-foot gaming floor with 150 slots, 25 tables, and a poker room.

The casino is in the LaRomana/Bayahibe area of the DR: and visitors are is well catered for. There are 5 hotels within walking distance, and a free shuttle bus if you are staying further out.

The staff are friendly, they speak English (and Spanish of course) and you’ll be treated to quite a selection of entertainment. Table limits go high here.

The casino opened at the end of 2007 and you’ll find Las Vegas style games but with a Caribbean flavour.

The table games are the most popular- roulette and blackjack being the leaders. The dealers are a smiley bunch (like many Dominicans).

If you are looking for something to do other than gambling, there’s plenty of options during the day of course, as the beaches and marine life around here are fantastic.

And the resort has been beefing up its entertainment and restaurant choice in recent years.

Your problem is going to be to extricate yourself away from the  palm trees, the turquoise blue water, the yummy cocktails, the cool Caribbean tunes and the white beaches. But hey, this is a good problem to have. Just force yourself out of that hammock!

The casino is the only spot on the island with a players club, and a  cashless betting system. The developers spent quite a bit of time trawling around Vegas to steal their best ideas, and it shows.

It’s Spanish Colonial with a splash of Caribbean rum. There’s a waterfall, lots of fountains and beautiful gardens: a true tropical gaming setting. And the emphasis is on luxury with curved tile ceilings, chandeliers,  oak woodwork, Italian marble, and a huge crystal dome in the middle of the casino.

If you are looking for a Caribbean Casino that goes some way to matching the Vegas experience- the Casino Dominica is definitely worth a shot. And we’d argue that the Dominican Republic is a hell of a lot prettier than the Nevada desert!
