Casino Club Santa Rosa is easily one of the largest gambling facilities in Argentina, offering table games, poker and slot machines. The casino is situated on the shore of Don Tomás Lagoon in Santa Rosa, and is one of the city’s top attractions. Santa Rosa is also full of fun activities to keep visitors occupied while they’re not gambling – with the nearby Don Tomás Lagoon offering a variety of watersports.
Since there are national roads that lead straight from Buenos Aires to Casino Club Santa Rosa, the recommended way to travel here is by car, bus or taxi. Each of these options are available directly at Buenos Aires International Airport or elsewhere in the city.
The casino appears very large from the outside and there is plenty of parking spaces available near the entrance. The building has two glass pyramids on top of it, which act as sky-lights, and the entrance features large glass sliding doors.
The inside of Casino Club Santa Rosa is broken down into 4 sections: the main restaurant, the event space with seating for the buffet, the poker room and the gaming floor. The event room has a large floor with tables and a large stage that is used for hosting live events such as music and comedy shows. The casino itself has just under 90,000 square feet of gaming space. It’s open on weekdays from 10:00 AM to 4:00 AM, but on Fridays and Saturdays it stays open until 4:30 AM and 5:00 AM respectively.
There is not a huge variety of different games to play at Casino Club Santa Rosa, but all the classic card and dice games are represented, with a healthy number of tables to choose from. The primary table games on offer include roulette, craps, blackjack and baccarat.
If you enjoy playing roulette, then you will be pleased to know that it is one of the most heavily-represented games on the casino floor.
