Flee from the Spanish sun or take a break from the beach in a high-tech casino that offers many different games and occasional cultural events.
Complementing the myriad attractions offered by the beach, the Gran Casino Costa Brava provides a welcome retreat inside for a bit of air-conditioned fun. Covering over 335,000 square feet (31,000 square meters) near the center of Lloret de Mar, the casino offers a great evening out with slots, table games and more. Bet a few euros, mingle with the other visitors who give the establishment a welcoming, collegial atmosphere or sip cocktails at the bar while watching the activity on the floor.
Appreciate the cool night air on the short walk from central Lloret de Mar or come in the afternoon when the sun is at its hottest. The modern slot machines are available in a wide range of languages. Change the language of the machines and watch the buttons change language too. Wander to the blackjack tables, offered in both electronic and traditional card forms. Feel the adrenaline rush as the dealer flips cards toward the magic 21 number.
Bring chips to the roulette tables, where a hush falls over the crowd as the ball clicks through the compartments of the wheel. Try picking the odds to win and join in the cheers as others win. While Caribbean or stud poker are the usual poker offerings, watch for other varieties. Have a meal in the on-site restaurant or purchase a snack from the tapas bar, perfect for fueling a night out on the town.
