The casino is a small establishment with a Caribbean atmosphere and has been open for almost a decade now. There is a band that plays traditional music here on some nights, which can really liven up the casino’s atmosphere. You will find that the band will bring in many of the people staying as guests at the resort and so the gaming here is generally novices that are there to have a good time.
There are 25 electronic gaming machines as well as roulette in the casino, which is open daily between 10 AM and 6 AM.. The casino also has a restaurant and a bar. If you are playing at one of the slot machines or table games, the casino staff will go to the bar and order drinks for you.

There are a small number of table games at the casino as the lion’s share of the space is taken up by the restaurant, bar, band area, and slots.
American Roulette is responsible for most of the action as there are several seats around the roulette tables, which both come with different min/max betting options.
Blackjack is another popular table game with each table seating 7 players. The rules are the same as you would find in most US-based casinos and the casino will use either 4-decks or 6-decks.
There are roughly 25 slots available for play at any one time at the casino. On a busy night, the most popular themes can be filled up quite quickly as the min bets are low here with some of them being nickel slots.
