Feeling lucky? Head to the stylish gaming tables of Amsterdam’s largest casino or treat yourself to dinner and a live show.
Don’t worry if you’re not a gambling pro. You can still have an exciting evening at the Holland Casino, as this stylish venue caters for all levels. Take your place at the roulette or poker tables for a classic gaming experience and let the fun begin. If you want to play it safe, try your luck on the slot machines. Owned by the state, the Holland Casino has been recognised for its social responsibility, and any profits go straight to the government treasury. Privatisation is planned though, so practices will change.
Enjoy the heady atmosphere of the roulette, poker and blackjack tables. You don’t even have to part with any money to get caught up in the excitement. Simply stand to one side and watch the intense concentration of the players, with the highs and lows according to their luck. If you do decide to give it a go, starting stakes at the tables are usually low. Although, if you can afford to lose a little and you’re feeling daring, the High Limit Area will definitely up the stakes.
Complete the casino experience with a classic cocktail at the on-site club, or try the delicious gourmet French-style cuisine in the De Brasserie restaurant. There are less expensive dining options served in the other restaurants should your luck have deserted you at the gaming tables.
On the last Friday of the month, there are music acts and live shows to enjoy, as part of the Casino’s Friday Night Out. Tickets for these events are extra to the regular casino admission charge.
Holland Casino is located in central Amsterdam on Max Euweplein, an area dedicated to entertainment with terraces, galleries, a comedy club and a branch of the Hard Rock Café. Take the tram to the Leidesplein square which is just a short walk away. The casino is open every day until late into the night. There is a smart dress code, do don’t turn up in jeans or wearing casual footwear. Younger-looking guests need identification, as the minimum age is 18.
