Casinos

St. Maarten Casinos

You’re in Luck!

When it comes to gambling in St Maarten, fortunately nothing is left to chance.

The island’s 12 casinos offer a guaranteed return on the time you spend among their flashing lights, bars and spontaneous shows.

Our casinos represent one of the biggest nocturnal attractions for visitors, so each ‘house’ is a well-maintained monument to fun.

Whether you’re a serious card shark, novice slot player, or casual roulette investor, you’ll enjoy a relaxed yet formal atmosphere where you’re well taken care of and relentlessly entertained. It’s a win-win situation…

The newest addition to the St Maarten casino landscape dominates the intersection on the road leaving Philipsburg, just opposite the famous Air Lekkerbek airplane restaurant. Formerly a shopping mall, this new casino is a vaulting cavern of lady luck., Beach Plaza offers something different for cruise ship passengers and a diversion for overheated shoppers. This air-conditioned corner of the pondfill has over 180 slots and plenty of gaming tables.

On Front Street, Casino Rouge et Noir has been popular among local gamesmen since opening in 1982. Choose from six Blackjack tables, 160 slot machines, Bingo, Roulette, Poker and Baccarat.

Diamond Casino is, for many, the last chance saloon on the walk back to the cruise ship terminal, incorporating a selection of low-denomination slots to turn those nickels into big bucks. Or not.

Across the road, Jump Up Casino has been operating since 2001 with a distinctly Caribbean, carnival flavor. During the day, it’s not uncommon to see local shop staff entrust their lunch money into the hands of Lady Luck, whereas at night there is live entertainment and a well stocked bar.

Some of the bigger, more luxurious casinos are found over the hill in Simpson Bay. The entrance to the ‘Golden Kilometer and a Bit’ is the Tropicana, which is looking better than ever after a 2009 refurbishment. A favorite here is the nightly Bingo tournament, as well as the live cabaret.

Up the road, Paradise Plaza is a sprawling 1,100 sq meter house of fun with over 200 slots, live sport at the Time Out Sports Bar, and a separate sports book room where patrons can gamble on live horse racing from the US. This is a great spot to catch World Cup action, World Series or the Superbowl.

Maho Street parade St MaartenOver the lagoon, the siren lights of Princess Casino, also recently renovated, lure players to the Port de Plaisance complex where you’ll also find two restaurants, a nightclub and live entertainment. Also in Simpson Bay is the Dolphin Casino, a stone’s throw from the beach and local restaurants. If you can’t spot Hollywood Casino, you’re unlikely to put one over on the dealer: this casino is like a shimmering beacon on the Pelican skyline.

If the restaurants in Maho and Cupecoy cater for the carnivores, the casinos look after the Vegans, of the Las Vegan variety. Casino Royale is the largest on the island – 14,000 sq ft of gaming with its own theater auditorium for shows and cabaret events. The casino has 30 gaming tables, 400 slots and even a private ‘high-roller’ room with the highest table limits on the island. Those down on their luck (the low-rollers?) can still lift their spirits as the nightly carnival parade spills out onto the brightly lit street outside.

Go to Cupecoy, and you are entering Atlantis World, dominated by one of the island’s favorite casinos. Opened in 1992, this high-octane house offers a nightly buffet and live entertainment and has a true Sin City feel.

Whether you’re dropping coins during the afternoon in your flip flops or tossing chips at night in your best threads, your luck is in. Yes, the house always wins according to casino lore, but it’s a hard won victory that’ll still leave you with a smile on your face.
