Ivory Coast Casinos

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 26th, 2010

The Ivory Coast is a country in West Africa which shares borders with Liberia, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, and Ghana, having a shoreline along the Gulf of Guinea to the south of the country. The Ivory Coast spreads over 124,503 square miles and has a population of approximately 18,154,000.

The country's rich history and culture make it a desirable destination of tourists from around the world who wish to experience the adventures of a wild safari or the charm and hospitality of the local people. There is only one Ivory Coast casino, which is situated in the capital city of Abidjan and is called Hotel Ivoire Inter-Continental & Casino. The Casino offers ten table games featuring blackjack, poker, and roulette, as well as 60 slot machines. The Hotel Ivoire Inter-Continental & Casino's operating hours are from 4 pm to 3 am every day, though they may vary on a national or bank holiday.

The Ivory Coast casino follows international playing rules and regulations; however, it is suggested to check any and all house rules as they can change with no prior notification. To gamble in the Ivory Coast casino, you need to be at least 18 years or older, and the same rule applies for drinking any alcoholic beverages, as well. It is advisable to carry photo identification on you at all times, even if the casino personnel do not check it with regularity. Should you be found to be under age or without recent photo identification to prove your age, you may be asked to leave the casino immediately.

The Hotel Ivoire Inter-Continental & Casino is a legal gambling facility where everyone speaks English in addition to the official language, which is French. The personnel are friendly and helpful, conducting free gambling lessons periodically for those who wish to enter the world of thrills and excitement. The Hotel in which the casino is sheltered also offers rooms and suites, as well as restaurants, bars, and other facilities for its guests. Their hours may vary vastly from those of the casino.

The Ivory Coast is a country of many interesting attractions, where every single day is an adventure in itself. The casino in the capital city is the only official gambling facility. There may be other unofficial gambling facilities available in the country, but it is strongly advised to stay away from them in order to avoid any problems that may occur.
