Jamaica Casinos

by Adel Awwad

When you think of Jamaica, what comes to mind are beautiful white beaches with clear blue waters, palm trees, and nature untouched by humans and/or pollution, in short paradise on earth.

Jamaica offers much more than just unspoiled nature by daylight, but also an exciting time by night in its ten casinos in the major cities of interest to visiting tourists.

Kingston, the capital and the largest city, has two casinos, Falmouth has one, Negril has two, Ocho Rios, which is a major port, has two, and Montego Bay, which is also a port, has four.

Both Ocho Rios and Montego Bay attract many tourists primarily, but not all, from cruise ships. Hotel resorts host most of the Jamaican casinos and this is convenient for tourists who don't have to travel any further to play their favorite games.

The Treasure Hunt, which is situated in Ocho Rios, is the largest casino in Jamaica, with a total of 120 slot machines.

In Jamaica casinos, table games are not common, but most of the casinos will have a large number of slot machines and they are often open 24 hours a day like the Treasure Hunt of Ocho Rios. However, hours differ vastly and it is advisable to check before you go.

A Jamaica casino, the Sunset Beach Resort & Spa, welcomes guests daily between 8 am and 6 pm only.

In order to participate in any gambling activities, you must be 18 years or older in Jamaica and the same applies for consumption of any alcoholic beverages; carry a recent photo identification, as some Jamaica casinos may require that before you can enter and gamble.

Besides casinos, Jamaica gambling also includes horse track race betting. There is only one such facility in St. Catherine at Caymanas Park, where you can bet and watch live horseracing. Betting is open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

In the Jamaica casinos, English is the official language, as Jamaica was a former British Colony; however, there are many dialects spoken in the country, which are hard to understand or follow, but fascinating to hear. The people of Jamaica are very friendly, welcoming you in their homes to enjoy their culture and taste their cuisine, such as the famous Jamaican specialties of rum and rum cakes. Enjoy this beautiful country and the hospitality any time you go to the Caribbean, as well as the excitement of their casinos.
