And although we currently don't have the type of casinos that you may have come to expect of, say in the US, the few we have do provide exciting and fulfilling entertainment!
Most of the all-inclusive hotels and resorts here do have slots and poker machines on site, primarily those on the western end of the island [Negril, Montego Bay and Ocho Rios]
The Starfish Hotel in Trelawny, Sunset Beach Resort & Spa, Hedonism & the Sunset Jamaica Grande are typical examples of hotels that have their own casinos.
Perhaps the two most popular casinos here in Jamaica though, are Coral Cliff, which is situated on the 'hip strip', right across from Margueritaville in Montego Bay and Treasure Hunt on main street in Ocho Rios.
Both Treasure Hunt and Coral Cliff features over 120 gaming machines ranging in denominations from US$0.05 to U$5, with Coral Cliff offering the opportunity to win Jackpots of up to US$50,000!
The last phone contacts I had for Coral Cliff and Treasure Hunt are, 876-952-4130 and 876-974-8169 respectively.
Should Jamaica have Legalized Casino Gaming?
The government recently approved casino gaming in Jamaica. But while it brought some celebration from the business sector, the government came under fire from other social institutions- primarily the church.
