Casino de Biarritz – Casino Review

The Casino de Biarritz is a newly renovated building with views of the stunning beach outside the window. Although it is quite small compared to other casinos in France, it is very beautiful and certainly worth a visit for the architecture alone.


Of course, the real draw is the casino itself which boasts around 220 exciting slot machines and

4 blackjack tables, 3 boules tables, 2 English roulette tables, 4 French roulette tables, 1 poker table, 1 stud poker table and 1 punto banco. This is clearly not the place to go if poker is your main casino game, but there is plenty of variety otherwise.


One thing to be aware of is that not everything is open before 9 pm so do not expect to be able to play everything you may want to before that time. Games are available until 3 am most days or 4 am on a Saturday evening, so do not expect an early night – especially if you are on to a winning streak!


As with many other French casinos, there is often live entertainment such as comedy and music so you really can make a full night of it here. Why not start with a meal, win some money in the casino (if you’re lucky!), catch a show and then head off to bed in the hotel – a real (French) Las Vegas experience all under one roof.


There are four different food/drink establishments, including a casual lunch cafe, one restaurant, a lounge with drinks and bar food and one dedicated bar. Most people report these as affordable and tasty – a great way to re-fuel between games, or perhaps buy a round with your newly won money!


As with all of this chain of casinos, you can get a CasinoPass which opens the doors to your for various offers, bonuses, exclusive events and general surprises. It’s free to get your Red card and the more you play, the higher up the tower you climb and the better your deal is. There are even special gifts for your birthday and deals on their adjoining hotels.


If poker is your game, you might be disappointed, but otherwise, this is a great, modern casino with plenty of choices, lots of fantastic eating and drinking options, all housed in a beautiful, recently renovated building in an incredible location by the coast. What more could anyone ask for?!
