The beautiful nation of Belgium is strategically placed between France and Germany as a conduit for tourist activity. Many tourists journey through Belgium to experience the natural beauty, culture, and history of the Belgian people. However, vacations can’t be all about museums and walking tours. Young couples, groups of friends, and others who want to have some fun in Belgium flock to this country’s great casinos. Belgium has eight great casinos spread throughout the country, so that tourists and Belgians alike can have easy access to great games and good company.
The biggest casino in the great country of Belgium is the Casino Knokke in the city of Knokke-Heist. The Casino Knokke has everything a gambler or tourist could want from a casino. As tourists walk up to the casino, they can observe the beautiful modern facade and classic signage that makes this Belgian casino stand out with its subtlety. Once gamblers are in the casino, however, they won’t remember the beauty of the outside when they hit 21 on the blackjack table or win money at the slot machines. The 66,000 square foot gaming area of the Casino Knokke is spacious enough for the thousands that come through its doors every day. With 50 gaming machines and 18 table games, there is no shortage of fun to be had by casino goers. When the fun is over and tourists need to grab something to eat, they can sit down at the beautiful restaurants Bis or Mascotte that are attached to the Casino Knokke.
Belgium’s casinos typically fit into the mold of smaller, more casual places than that of Casino Knokke. With seven smaller casinos throughout Belgium, tourists should have no problem stopping by and having some fun at poker tables or slot machines. The Casino Blankenberge in Blankenberge is one of the bigger casinos in this group, with 19 gaming and card tables and a cozy environment for the casual gambler. The Casino Chaudfontaine in Chaudfontaine has just more than ten tables, but is located near Belgian nightlife and offers a great place to hang out for Belgians and visitors alike. Other casinos that fit into this comfortable, cozy type of Belgian casino are the Casino de Spa and the Casino de Namur. The casinos in Belgium may not be the same size as those in places like Las Vegas, but they offer a nice distraction and great fun for anyone who comes through their doors.
