OF the many amazing buildings to see and events to attend in Madrid, a common favourite among locals and tourists is the gambling scene.
With many top-class casinos standing in Spain’s capital, there is plenty of choice for those who want to try their luck on the roulette wheel, against the dealer in blackjack, on the slot machines, or in sports betting.
As casinos and betting are so popular in Spain and across Europe, it should come as no surprise that the casinos in Madrid have become some of the most popular attractions in the city – especially those that have some form of sports offering. But, only one can emerge as the pinnacle of betting in the Spanish capital.
According to travellers online, Casino Gran Via is the very best when it comes to casinos and gambling in Madrid, ranking higher than Casino Gran Madrid Colon and Bingo Roma.
Casino Gran Via has everything that a patron could want from a classy casino in Spain.
Across three gaming floors, it boasts a huge range of slots and gaming machines, punto banco, poker rooms, blackjack, roulette, and interactive gambling tables for speedy, high-tech gambling. Punters can even venture into the Royal Sports Bar to watch their favourite sports if they’ve placed a bet online or their favourite team is on.
With great customer service, fine dining, a huge game selection, a sports bar, and a poker room, there’s no doubt that Casino Gran Via offers the ultimate gambling experience in Madrid. But, how does it compare to the other popular places for betting in Spain?
Situated along the wildly popular Costa del Sol, Casino Marbella underwent a big, three-month-long revamp in the summer of 2017 to give it a more exciting, modern look, and it’s certainly paid off. The refurbishment of the interior changed it from a somewhat worn venue to a spectacular destination.
Much like Casino Gran Via, Casino Marbella boasts a huge range of table and machine games on its gaming floors as well as a top-class restaurant. Both casinos can offer a thrilling night of decadence and gambling, making them prime locations for those seeking a very special night out, but the Madrid venue gets the nod thanks to its diverse sports bar that can add another level to a night of fun and betting.
It’s not just the brick-and-mortar casinos that have earned the appraisal of gamblers in Spain, with the quickest and the most diverse gambling solution rapidly becoming a very popular way to play casino games and place bets in the nation.
Quite possibly aided by the number of British people who now call Spain home, online betting sites have suddenly become very popular.
Many of these UK betting sites also boast their own casino and gaming sections as well, offering the whole range of gambling activity that’s just a tap or a click away. While betting is still the more popular form of gambling online in Spain, the betting sites that also offer casino games see many of their bettors try their hand at live roulette, video slots, or their scratch cards.
Casino Gran Via reigns supreme in Madrid, with Casino Marbella offering a great time down south, but all over Spain, people are going online to indulge in sports betting with a side of casino gaming.
