Lady Luck is on Your Side!

Wherever your preference lies, be it in blackjack, poker, craps, roulette, or baccarat, Aruba's casinos offer it all. Caribbean Stud Poker is an Aruban brainchild, invented here in 1988 and currently skyrocketing in popularity all over the world. In this game, as in blackjack, each player vies only with the dealer.

Contrary to blackjack, however, Caribbean Stud Poker offers players the thrill of a progressive jackpot that can reach into hundreds of thousands of U.S. dollars!

Ringing slot machines abound too. In general, gaming in Aruba runs from noon to just before dawn, although there are a couple of casinos that are open twenty-four hours a day. The legal age for entry into a casino is eighteen (18) years, and the casino has the right to request a valid I.D. as proof of age. Some of the more popular casinos are listed below.

NOTES: All gaming in the Aruba casinos is done with U.S. currency. The slots use either U.S. coins or tokens of the same value depending on the casino. Many machines will accept your paper U.S. currency directly. There are nickel slots at all the casinos and some also have penny machines. Sports betting is available at many of the casinos.

Table minimums vary depending on the casino. The craps tables, for example are $5 at some casinos and $10 at others.
