Trinidad / Casinos

By Stephen Thorpe

Trinidadians love to gamble and there are a number of casinos on the island. Casinos are ‘private member's clubs’ and in that respect are selective when it comes to patronage, as they naturally want to attract the clientele who can afford to gamble and spend money at the tables. Although Trinidad residents need to be a club member to gain access, visitors to the island do not and simply need to provide photo ID and an address. Slot machines are still very popular and are available at select casinos and there are also a large number of lottery games. In recent years the government has talked of closing down the industry however a firm commitment to this issue has not been ratified.

Some of the more popular clubs include:

Club Casanovas, Tunapuna
Club Phoenix, Chaguanas
Club Rio, San Fernando
Ma Pau, Port of Spain
Sands Casino, San Fernando
The City of Grand Bazaar, Valsayn
Club de Vegas, Port of Spain
Island Club Casino, Valsayn
