The area
Address
Neighborhood: Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
How to get there

Blackjack is played differently here. Dealer does not get second card until all players have stayed or busted. Then dealer gets second card. After that, regular rules apply. Also, tables under 20 Euro are automated. No chips. You click a screen on front of you. It also appears the cards are frid equipped as I noticed on the dealer screen it showed the next card the dealer before it was revealed. Only saw that when I was watching from the side. Constant shuffle machines are used. Not a fan of those 2 technologies being used together.

Thanks for sharing your opinion about our black jack, jimmN157AS. Even though is a matter of taste to like better one type of black jack or another, it's always positive for us to know every opinion, it makes us learn a lot about our customer preferences. Thanks again for your feedback and your final rate.

Not a very good casino at all. Food was overpriced, service was average. We drank sangrias which were €4.5 which was actually a good price considering the size of the glass. Food at the restaurant were small portions and expensively priced. The gaming machines are similar to the ones in Australia and were easy to play and had English options. The tables were ok but the dealers were average and the skill level was average. Constant mistakes and not all of them spoke English which should be a prerequisite for a casino... overall not a bad night just a bit boring.

Dear Andrew, Thank you for your opinion. We have many restaurants here in Casino Barcelona with different gastronomy types such as tapas, nikkei cuisine, fine dinning with wines and cavas, buffet dinner, sandwiches or menus. Of course all of them have different prices. About tables, Casino Barcelona is one of the poker leaders in Europe and we have a huge need of new croupiers. We train them continuously so they can work in a really high level. You might have found someone with less experience, but learners have to get the chance to improve and to reach the excellence of the more experienced croupiers in our team. We hope we will see you again in the future to enjoy a pleasant night and to check by yourself that this is not representative of what usually happens here in our casino. Best regards.

We were visiting the city and used the free vouchers that we got from the bus tour company. The tour guide that the casino was open 24 hours and we figured we would visit it after dinner.

Not being a frequent visitor of casinos it is hard to benchmark it. At reception we were greeted with a friendly receptionist who took our ID (you need a driving licence or a passport).

On the ground floor of the casino they had slot machines and digital roulette tables. In the basement they had the poker tables, roulette tables, and the bar area.

All in all the experience was okay but I am not sure I would want to pay admission as a casual tourist visitor. You can download a voucher online.

Really poor returns from the slots. We play slots regularly at various casinos and obviously you don't always expect to win but to regularly receive wins of less than 5 euros in bonus rounds when your wagering 1 euro per shot is not right.

We called it a night when we received a total bonus win of 1 euro three times in a row after spending around 50 euro to get the bonus.

The only positive is that the bar meals are decent.

Sadly this review will be of the experience that I had just steps inside the door of the casino. My girlfriend and I walked in on our last night in Barcelona expecting a great experience after checking the reviews. The two young ladies at the front checked our IDs and then looked me up and down. One of the ladies then asked us to wait while she checked if I could get in with my Adidas flip flops on. She picks up a phone and then speaks to someone for about 2-3 minutes in Catalan while the other gave me multiple dirty looks. After the call the young lady states that I need closed shoes to enter and that beachwear was not permitted. I was fine with that, until. My girlfriend and I stepped back out and contemplated me going back to our room to change shoes. Before we could even come to a decision we witnessed 3 males in the span of 5 minutes walk in with walmart style thong flip flops, show their ID and be granted access to the casino. They were not required to have closed shoes as their beachwear was acceptable. These men were Caucasians. No calls were made. Now I have to say that I don't know if this was racially or nationally motivated but it didn't sit well. It put a slight damper on the evening but it wasn't ruined completely. Was this call made because we were black, Americans or a combination of the 2? We will never know now. All because of my flip flops?

Dear Charles, Thank you very much for your comment, this kind of contributions help us to improve. We deeply regret the situation that happened during your visit to Casino Barcelona. We apologize if we could not properly explain the dress code. We try to be strict regarding beachwear and if this three customers that you mentioned could get in wearing flip flops it might have been due to a mistake. You will always be welcome to Casino Barcelona. We hope that you are willing to give us a second chance in order to offer you a great experience with us. Kind regards, Casino Barcelona

Casino is close to the sea which is nice.
First of all it is small.
In addition the personel is very not nice or pleasant.
We have been in lot of casinos in the world, and we always enjoyed losing a little bit of money. This time we did not (enjoy).

This is the only casino in the world where at black jack you have to play in the box which is exactly at the same position as your seat (even if the seats are not aligned with the boxes, then you have to count..)
If you don’t, and an other player comes (even if he stands) and puts some money on you, if he puts more, it turns to be his play and he decides to pull a card or not.
SO ANNOYING !
Only answer of the personel was « here it works this way, the one with the more money leads the turn ».
At least 3 persons were caught with this crazy rule and left very pissed off.

Personel of the rulette was not nicer.

Last thing is that all the black jack tables with less than 20$ per turn use screen and have no jetons.

Was a frustrating evenig, i recommend to avoid

Dear Jonathan, We are really sorry that you felt this way, but our blackjack rules are the ones that you were told when you came here. The person who is sitting is the one that takes the decision. If nobody is sitting, then is the person who bet more money. The croupier might have explained them to you before playing; that would have avoided you such a bad or disappointing experience. You have to understand that if we had no rules, it would be impossible to play to our games, as there are many people here. We need to tell you that our staff gives its best to make our client's experience in our casino the best it can be. We are sorry if it was not like this when you came yesterday. We offer Blackjack in iTables (without jetons) to offer different ways of playing, to adapt our games to our customers. Again, sorry for the inconveniences. We can assure you that if you come again the experience will be much better.

Apart from the People working in poker room who seems nice i have never met ruder and incompotent dealers at black jack table and pit bosses. They paid me for black jack, mucked my 2 loosing hands then realised dealer also got black jack. Next hand the pit boss who is very rude came over and asked for 45 eros back. I requested to speak to overall manager and he was no better. Any casino in the world would have let me keep the money especially when i lost on 2 other hands and all cards mucked and new hand dealt. I love playing black jack but will never play here again and advise anyone else not to as well. Shockingly rude and incompotent.

I’ve visited casinos on several continents and not a single one is close to being as bad as Casino Barcelona. Everything is overpriced, even water which is odd for a casino. The service is a bad as humanely possible. Security agents push you over when walking by. You can wait 30mins to buy a bottle of water while at the bar. I mean this place is so bad its insane. Probably only makes money during poker events in the summer because I see no reason to ever step inside except for that reason.

We are sorry that you got that impression when you came. These crowded days we are more strict with our security staff to guarantee that all is under control. In fact, all our staff do its best to offer our clients a pleasant and fun time. The crowd can make it a bit tougher, but we work to make everybody have great experiences, so we do feel really sorry that you describe your visits with such words.

I have been to this casino on several occasions over the past few years. They offer standard table games including black jack. I have played black jack there but only when I was waiting for a poker table. The poker room is good and has different stakes to suit all kinds of players. The patrons are a mix of locals and people in Barcelona on holiday / business. The only drawback is the game ends at some point in the morning. Remember to bring your passport as you will need it to gain entrance.
