Local Casinos

Gambling has been around in some form or another with references to games of chance starting as early as the time of the Ancient Greeks and Romans. In Europe, the first ever casino was established in Venice, Italy in 1638 in order to provide controlled gaming during the famous carnival seasons. In 1770, however, they felt gambling was impoverishing the local population, so closed down the site. In America, saloons, which were also the local bars, doubled as gambling sites, offering games, such as poker and dice. Like Italy, however, the US believed gambling was getting out of control so outlawed it entirely during the early 20th century. Then, in 1931, the state of Nevada – home to the famous Las Vegas – legalized casinos with New Jersey – where you will find the renowned Atlantic City – soon following suit.

Each country provides its own legislation when it comes to the legality of gaming sites within that country, including laws about online gambling, with many countries opting out altogether. In this section, we provide an overview to all the brick and mortar casinos across the globe by country, what games they provide, opening hours, and contact information. With such a high turnover of new casinos being built and older casinos being closed down, however, the information is only accurate at the time of collecting and updating the data, so if you notice any errors or your casino is missing from our database, please contact us and we will be happy to update our system.
