Gambling In The Bahamas

Gambling is legal in the Bahamas. Ages 18 and up are legally allowed to try their luck at a host of games of chance. One of the more interesting aspects of the Bahamas’ gambling laws is that everyone except Bahaman citizens can gamble. If a Bahaman is caught gambling he or she can be fined $500.

There are three main casinos in the Bahamas. Atlantis is located on Paradise Island. In addition to being the largest casino in the Bahamas, Atlantis features the largest marine habitat, a 15 million dollar marina, the underwater ruins of the actual Atlantis, as well as waterfalls and lagoons. For those bringing kids along, the Mayan Temple Water Slides is a necessary stop. The Leap of Faith slide offers almost a straight 60-foot drop; the Challengers are racing slides and there is also a Lazy River for those who want to tube and relax. There are also 11 swimming pools and a European spa and fitness center. There are 18 lounges including some crazy night clubs as well as 17 restaurants, so guests never have to leave the resort.

The Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino is located on New Providence Island. The casino is open 24 hours. There are 750 slots and 59 game tables. Other gaming is also available. The resort features seven restaurants as well as a ballroom, arcade, white sandy beach, discotheque, shopping, a swimming pool, water sports and more.

The Lucaya Beach & Golf Resort is on Grand Bahama Island. The Lucaya is actually two resorts, the Sheraton and the Westin, in one. The Westin is geared to a more relaxed vacation. It is perfect for romantic getaways and honeymoons. There is a luxury pool as well as high-end accommodations. The Sheraton provides more of a family environment. Things for families such as water slides, a 50s style diner and children’s activities draw a fun-loving crowd. For adults there are bars and lounges, two golf courses and a spa. Although each resort is within a better proximity to some activities, guests at both resorts are allowed to utilize most of the facilities such as pools, golf courses, the beach, and so forth. The casino, called Isle of Capri, features 400 game tables and 21 slot machines. There are also high limit slot machines and high limit tables for big-time gamblers.
