Fodor's Expert Review Casino du Gosier
For the higher-stakes gambling at this casino, you'll have to change at least €100 into chips to be part of the action. The blackjack limit, though, is €10. Slot machines open at 10 am and shut down at 4 am. Locals love this place and jam the parking lot on weekends. (It is within walking distance of most properties in the hotel zone.) Casino de Gosier has a bar and a well-priced buffet restaurant that is open from Tuesday through Saturday for lunch and dinner. The bar can really crank up on Saturday nights or holidays, with sexy island girls in brief silver lamé costumes dispensing free Champagne. Local bands sometimes add to the energy. You will need to bring your passport, or you won't get past the checkpoint; the legal gambling age is 21.
