The Caribbean conjures up images of beautiful islands, with perfect white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees and the deep blue ocean glittering under an endlessly sunny sky. And Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, a former British colony that since 1979 has enjoyed its independence, does not disappoint. Yet when the sun finally sets, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Casinos offer the gambling visitor a way of continuing the party into the small hours of the morning.
There are two Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Casinos, one in the capital Kingstown, which is found on the largest island, Saint Vincent, and the other at Carenage Bay, which is located on a small island called Canouan, which is part of the group of islands known as the Grenadines.
First let’s pay a visit to the capital Kingstown, the chief port and largest city, albeit a capital city with just 15,000 inhabitants. Here gamblers will find the country’s largest casino, the Emerald Valley Resort and Casino, located in Penniston Valley. The casino offers 50 slot machines and eight table games, including three tables of Blackjack, two tables of Caribbean Stud Poker (and if you can’t play Caribbean Stud Poker in the Caribbean, where you can you play it?), three tables of Roulette, and finally the dice-based game, Craps. To spend their winnings (or help forget the losses) visitors will find the resort has an American restaurant, a DJ Bar, and a whole range of sports facilities including a nine hole golf course, swimming, tennis, horse riding facilities and a 24 room hotel.
The second casino on Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is in Carenage Bay, on the island of Canouan, and is part of the Raffles Resort hotel. This luxurious establishment enjoys 300 acres of private grounds and its own white sandy beaches, with accommodation consisting of 156 villas for the guests. The casino is located in the Villa Monte Carlo, which in addition offers a gourmet restaurant and a ballroom. US entrepreneur Donald Trump manages the casino, based in the Trump Club Privee, and it offers six tables playing Blackjack, Roulette and Craps, all in European-style gaming experience.
So whether in Kingstown or Canouan, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Casinos offer a great choice for those who like to try to beat the odds in luxurious and beautiful surroundings.
