When you think of Jamaica, what comes to mind are beautiful white sand beaches with crystal clear waters, palm trees and a nature untouched by humans and / or pollution, in short, paradise on earth. Jamaica offers much more than unspoiled nature in the daylight, but also an exciting time at night in its ten casinos in the main cities of interest to visiting tourists.
Kingston, the capital and largest city, has two casinos, Falmouth has one, Negril has two, Ocho Rios, which is a major port, has two, and Montego Bay, which is also a port, has four. Both Ocho Rios and Montego Bay attract many tourists primarily, but not all, from cruise ships. Hotel complexes are home to the majority of Jamaican casinos and this is convenient for tourists who do not have to travel further to play their favorite games.
Treasure Hunt, which is located in Ocho Rios, is the largest casino in Jamaica, with a total of 120 slot machines. In Jamaica casinos, table games are not common, but most casinos will have a large number of slot machines and are often open 24 hours a day, like the Treasure Hunt in Ocho Rios. However, the hours differ enormously and it is advisable to check before you go. One Jamaican casino, the Sunset Beach Resort & Spa, welcomes guests daily between 8 am and 6 pm only.
