Taking a trip to Europe?

Maybe you’ll want to combine your sightseeing and cultural activities with a visit to one of the continent’s best casinos.

Though it’s hard to narrow it down to just five fantastic operations, we’ve done our best to share our top picks!

Whether you’re a seasoned gamer or just like the odd flutter, each of these European casinos is worth checking out whilst you’re in town.

The Best Casinos in Europe

1. Resorts World, Birmingham (United Kingdom)

Let’s start with the largest casino in the United Kingdom: Resorts World, Birmingham. Resorts World is actually a giant entertainment complex, complete with dining, shopping, spa services, and other fun experiences. At the heart of it all, of course, is the casino.

This high-end casino is only for people 25 years or older, and on the floor, you’ll find all your favourite games as well as slot machines (with big jackpots) and 40 e-gaming terminals.

When you need a break, head over to one of the restaurants or check out the rooftop drinks at Sky By The Water.

2. King’s Casino, Prague (Czech Republic)

If you’re a poker fanatic, King’s Casino is for you. It has the largest poker room in Europe and since has hosted the World Series of Poker.

You’ll be able to play all your favourite games here, including craps and roulette, and there are lots of slot machines to go around. You can pair an evening at the casino (or a full weekend) with a stay at the onsite 5-star hotel in one of its luxurious rooms or suites. There are spa services here, restaurants and buffets, and just about everything else you’ll need to have fun.

This fantastic casino is a great addition to any Prague trip!

3. Kurhaus, Baden-Baden (Germany)

Kurhaus is Germany’s oldest casino, and it’s certainly the most beautiful in Europe—if not the world!

This isn’t the typical casino you’d find in Vegas. All of its rooms are ornately decorated and modelled after French palaces, with enormous chandeliers and elaborate wall and ceiling paintings. It was certainly grand enough for Germany’s elite back in when it first opened.

Roulette, blackjack, and poker are just some of your options here.

And if you’re not able to visit Baden-Baden anytime soon, try your hand (pun intended!) at the online casino instead.

4. Dragonara Casino, St. Julian’s (Malta)

Other than being an upscale gaming and entertainment complex, Dragonara is hands down the casino with the best view. It’s built inside a 19th-century summer palace originally built by the Marquis Scicluna, and it’s surrounded by a colonnade on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Mediterranean. Much of the casino features are from the original palace.

In addition to 18 live table games and plenty of slot machines, there’s also high-end dining and a fantastic bar on site.

5. Casino Estoril, Estoril (Portugal)

Did you know that the Casino Estoril in Portugal was the inspiration behind Ian Fleming’s book Casino Royale? Apparently, it was a popular place for spies in the early s.

History isn’t the only thing on tap here, though. It’s got table games and slot machines, but it’s also home to one of the finest art galleries in the country, with permanent sculpture and painting exhibits. Its Estoril Mandarin Chinese restaurant is also famous throughout Europe, specializing in dishes from the Guangdong region.

With so many fantastic Casinos in Europe, the only question now is where will you start?
