Jackpot! Try your luck at Prague's best casinos

Feeling lucky? You've come to the right place. Known around the world for its exciting nightlife, Prague is the perfect place for adrenaline seekers ready to try their luck at one of the city’s many flashy gambling casinos. Prague casinos are particularly alluring because of their unpretentiousness and relative inexpensiveness compared to other prominent “Sin Cities” like Monte Carlo or Las Vegas. Whether you’re a high roller or an amateur looking for some fun, you’re sure to find the best casinos in Prague ready to welcome you — and your pockets — with open doors.

Guidelines to gambling in Prague
While gambling does offer a tourist experience off the beaten path, it doesn’t come without a general set of rules. The most important of which is that law requires all 21 casinos in Prague to check your official ID (passport or national ID) for registration, and to make sure you're older than the legal gambling age of 18. The good news is that all of Prague’s casinos have an open door policy, allowing you to gamble for free without a membership. Many casinos are open all day long, but the peak gaming hours start at 10 p.m. and go until the early morning hours. Drinks are available, and food is generally served until 11 p.m. Depending on where you go, there may be a smart casual dress code, but the majority of casinos aren't particularly strict about attire. Now, for the fun and games. Slot machines, as well as classic table games such as roulette, blackjack, poker, Texas Hold'em, can be found in nearly all casinos. In addition to Czech crowns, euros are sometimes accepted as playable currency. Some casinos can exchange other currencies at the cash desk.
