When people think of casino resorts, they often think of the glitz and glam that you will find in places like Las Vegas or Macau. It’s definitely true that places are home to some of the most well-known gaming places in the world, but Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula actually hosts some of the best casinos in the world. The Middle East Casino Resorts, in general, keep a low profile when it comes to international marketing.
These resorts are also surprisingly hardly ever mentioned on travel sites or blogs outside of their own region. To find the top casino resorts in Egypt and Sinai we did some local research and picked out the best of the best.
1. Sinai Grand Casino
The Sinai Grand Casino truly is ‘grand’, as it is actually the largest casino in Sharm El Sheikh. Boasting some of the most appealing architecture out of any casinos located here, the Sinai Grand is simply breathtaking. The casino here is huge, and it is connected to a whole range of five-star restaurants as well as nightclubs. It’s a place that just feels so alive, and the location is just awesome – right next to Naama Bay.
In terms of the casino itself, you can choose from some of the best poker rooms in Egypt. You can also play plenty of table games, spin the reels on the slots, or play at some of the electronic table games if you so desire. It would take you days to work your way through all of the gaming varieties that the Sinai Grand Casino has, but hey, you’ll have an awful lot of fun while checking them out.
2. Maritim Jolie Ville Resort & Casino
The name of this location kind of spoils the surprise, but Maritim Jolie Ville is actually a full-blown resort rather than just one physical casino. If you’re looking for a five-star hotel and an almost out of this world experience, this is a casino that you simply have to check out. First of all, Maritim Jolie Ville overlooks the private beaches of Naama Bay, which already offers some of the best views you can find here.
Being based in Sharm El Sheikh, Sinai, you’d expect a certain degree of shimmer and shine about this casino too, which is exactly what it has. There are around 100 different gaming machines at this casino, alongside plenty of live gaming tables, which include poker, blackjack, and roulette. If you aren’t feeling like gaming at any point in your stay, you can choose from some of the best restaurants and bars in Sharm El Sheikh – what more could you ask for?
3. London Club Casino
This 24/7 casino is located in Cairo, Egypt. One of the intriguing things about the London Club Casino is that players often use US dollars to enjoy the games, although the casino, of course, accepts Egyptian currency too. There are a ton of slot games that you can enjoy at the London Club Casino, but multiple table games like roulette and blackjack are also supported.
If the casino floor doesn’t quite meet your expectations (which we doubt), there are also plenty of high-end restaurants as well as five-star hotel rooms at this location. It is actually located directly in the heart of Cairo, nicely perched on the famous River Nile. The London Club Casino has been entertaining guests since 2002 as it happens, and there have been several upgrades since this inception.
As is the case with other casinos in Cairo, players must be over 21 years of age to go and gamble in this casino.
4. Casino Semiramis
This beauty is located on the East bank of the River Nile, and it has been providing gambling entertainment to travelers as well as locals for 30 years now. The Casino Semiramis was first developed in 1990, and it has now grown to accommodate tons of table games, slot machines, and some excellent poker rooms. This casino is far more than just an establishment for gaming too, as it has some fantastic cocktail bars and entertainment rooms where theater performances, as well as small concerts, take place.
Casino Semiramis is just a short drive away from Cairo’s international airport too, so you don’t need to travel far after a long flight to find this beautiful casino. If you are staying in the hotel attached to Casino Semiramis, you will be treated to some spectacular views of the city of Cairo as well as the River Nile. It’s undoubtedly one of the best casino/hotel locations in the Middle East in 2020!
5. Radjah Grand Casino – Sonesta Hotel
Located on the ground floor of the Sonesta hotel is the Radjah Grand Casino. This is not one of the most luxurious casinos in the region but the British-Indian colonial-style casino is open 24 hours and offers a place to relax after a long day at the nearby Convention Center. The 5-star Sonesta Hotel is within walking distance of the Cairo International Conference Center, located in the eastern district, Nasr City, of Cairo only 15 minutes from the airport.
The location makes this hotel very popular for international business travelers but it can not compare to the resorts mentioned above for travelers looking for a luxury holiday.
