Litoral is a casino brand that operates several properties throughout the Argentinian province of Corrientes. This specific branch of Casinos del Litoral is found in Santo Tomé, a city in the Argentine Mesopotamia. Popular activities in the area include horseback riding along the pristine beaches that follow the river on the border of the town of Santo Tomé.
Getting to the casino should be relatively easy because there is the São Tomé International Airport in Santo Tomé. Fly directly to Santo Tomé and take a bus or rent a car to cover the rest of the distance to the casino.
The exterior of the casino isn’t very remarkable with crème colored walls and a neon red sign that reads: “Casino” above the entrance to the premises. The gaming floor is a reasonable size at 27,000 square feet. The casino is open daily from 9 AM to 5 AM.

Lastly, there is one more card table game available named Pife Litoral. This is a game that you play versus the house. Pife is a type of card game that has become famous in South America; and more specifically in Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina.

There are 5 progressive jackpots that link all of the progressive slots at the casino. Every bet contributes a percentage to the central jackpot that can be triggered by a feature on one of the progressive jackpot slots within the network.
