Jamaican Casinos

When you think of Jamaica, what comes to mind are beautiful white sand beaches with crystal clear waters, palm trees and a nature untouched by humans and/or pollution, in short, paradise on earth. Jamaica offers much more than untouched nature during the day, but also an exciting time at night in its ten casinos in the main cities of interest to visiting tourists.

Kingston, the capital and largest city, has two casinos, Falmouth has one, Negril has two, Ocho Rios, which is a major port, has two, and Montego Bay, which is also a port, has four. Both Ocho Rios and Montego Bay attract many tourists, mainly, but not all, from cruise ships. The hotel complexes house most of the casinos in Jamaica and this is convenient for tourists who do not have to travel further to play their favorite games.

Treasure Hunt, located in Ocho Rios, is the largest casino in Jamaica, with a total of 120 slot machines. Table games are not common in Jamaican casinos, but most casinos will have a large number of slot machines and are often open 24 hours a day, such as Treasure Hunt of Ocho Rios. However, the hours differ wildly and it is advisable to check before you go. At the Jamaica casino, the Sunset Beach Resort & Spa welcomes guests daily between 8 am and 6 pm only.

In order to participate in any gambling activity, you must be 18 years of age or older in Jamaica and the same applies to the consumption of any alcoholic beverage; Bring a recent photo ID, as some Jamaican casinos may require it before you can enter and gamble.

In addition to casinos, gambling in Jamaica also includes betting on horse racing. There is only one such facility on St. Catherine at Caymanas Park, where you can bet and watch live horse racing. Betting is open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

In Jamaican casinos, English is the official language, since Jamaica was a former British colony; however, many dialects are spoken in the country, which are difficult to understand or follow, but fascinating to listen to. The people of Jamaica are very friendly and welcome you into their homes so you can enjoy their culture and try their cuisine, such as the famous Jamaican rum specialties and rum cakes. Enjoy this beautiful country and the hospitality every time you go to the Caribbean, as well as the excitement of its casinos.
