The pandemic has wreaked havoc to lives all across India. Several industries have been adversely affected due to the lockdown measures that were deployed by the government, measures that were necessary to ensure the survival of India. The gambling industry has been hit quite badly by the pandemic as well, most specifically the physical casinos that are present in Goa. Players have been unable to visit their favourite establishments and have had to experiment with online casinos such as Casino Days to be able to enjoy their favourite games.
In this article, We would like to shed light on the casinos in Goa that have provided entertainment to millions of Indians and list down my favourite three casinos that you can visit once the lockdown measures have been lifted.
Deltin Royale Casino
No surprise that this particular casino is the first one we would like to mention. Part of the Deltin Group, this casino has been referred to as ‘gamer’s paradise’ and provides Indians with an experience similar to what they see in Las Vegas. They have dedicated rooms for the different games including The Royale Poker Room which is one of a kind. There is also a unique room for lovers of Taash or the Indian flush.
All of these games are housed on a grand ship that floats majestically on the Mandovi River. Guests feeling peckish while playing at this casino need not to be worried. Executive Chef Pravin Sinha provides cuisines from all over the world.
There is also a dedicated Whiskey Lounge where guests can choose to sample the finest of whiskeys and hand-rolled cigars. If you feel your stay at the casino will be longer than intended, then there is even a deluxe VIP Gaming suite. Suffice to say this casino offers a five-star experience for its customers.
Big Daddy Casino
Another floating casino set off the coast of the Mandovi River, Big Daddy Casino is an offshore casino that offers unprecedented levels of entertainment and luxury for its visitors to enjoy. The ship itself is decked with neon lights and there are enough games present for even the most picky of gaming enthusiasts.
The casino has a total of 110 tables laid out on an area that covers 50,000 square feet over three decks. All international and national games are found at Big Daddy Casino including blackjack, poker, roulette, and Indian flush to name but a few.
Deltin Jaqk casino
Not happy with launching just one casino, the Deltin Group has opened another casino called Deltin Jaqk casino. Similar to their other offerings, the games and service is top class. You have local games such as Teen Patti, Andar Bahar and also international games such as American Roulette and Poker to help you pass the time. The casino offers a regal experience fit for royalty and is set on the Goan River.
Customers entering the casino are treated to a complimentary buffet dinner which includes food from all over the world. The Aqua Bar provides a dizzying assortment of drinks to satisfy even the pickiest of drinkers. While not particularly a place for underage customers, if you are to bring the little ones with you then you will be pleased to find a dedicated children’s room and ATMs placed all over the ship so you will always have the cash to enjoy the delights of this fabulous casino.
While it is safe to say that online casinos are here to stay, it will be difficult to fully replicate the ambiance of a physical casino. Yes, Evolution Gaming is doing a fantastic job in providing a live dealer experience into your living room but the thrill of playing at an actual casino will always be superior to an online one.
