If you want to line the Dutch public coffers, join the punters at Holland Casino, (and thank you for paying tax which, in the end, will benefit me too). Gaming in the Netherlands is legal, but the minimum age is 18.
Holland Casino is a black-and-white heap of Post-modern design. Entrance is through a colonnade topped with a frieze bearing the inscription: Homo Sapiens non urinat in ventum – wise men don’ t pee in the wind.
Holland Casino is a two-story building – slot machines on the ground floor and table games on the second. They offers the full range of gambling machines and table games including Black Jack, American Roulette, Caribbean Stud, Sic Bo, Punto Banco and a Big Wheel.
Want an easy win? Simply sit eye-to-eye with the fruit machine and wait for your fortune to jingle.
