Slovakia is the other half of the Czech Republic, which used to form Czechoslovakia before 1993 when it was split into two different countries. Slovakia has been a member of the European Union since 2004 and is proud to welcome a large number of tourists from all over the world by air, land, and by cruises on the famous river Danube which links it to Vienna and Budapest.

Slovakia casinos are placed in all major cities of interest including Bratislava, the capital, with two casinos, the Casino Café Reduta and Regency Casino; Kezmarok with the Admiral Club Casino; Kosice with two casinos, the Casino Kosice and Casino Sport; Piestany with the Casino Piestany, and Zilina with Casino Admiral Zilina. Gambling is legal in Slovakia, as long as you are 18 years of age or more, and the same rule applies for the consumption of alcoholic beverages.

Slovakia casinos feature all international games such as poker, roulette, and blackjack, as well as slot and other video gambling machines. Casino Café Reduta in Bratislava offers twelve table games, of which there are six for American roulette, four tables of blackjack, two of mini-baccarat, and one for draw poker. The only other casino found in Bratislava is the Regency Casino, which is a hotel, as well, and entertains its guests with 17 table games that include American roulette, blackjack, Caribbean Stud Poker, Mini Punto Banco, poker, and standard Punto Banco.

Besides the casino in the Regency, you can also find restaurants that offer national and international cuisine, a coffee shop, and shopping arcade with local souvenirs. Most Slovakia casinos are open between 1 pm and 4 am every day of the week. However, there may be some exceptions, and therefore it is advised to check the opening schedule beforehand.

The official language in Slovakia is Slovak; however, English is widely spoken, especially in places such as hotels, casinos, restaurants, and shopping, where tourists are expected to visit. To travel to Slovakia and enjoy the charm of their casinos and culture, you can either go by air, land or even take a cruise on the beautiful Danube River and experience the scenery and other beautiful places along the way. Slovakia has one other type of gambling which is legal and widely enjoyed by locals and tourist alike and that is horse race betting. While in Slovakia you might want to try both forms of gambling, as you never know which one you may win.
