“Well, the second time anyway”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

The first time I went with my husband, it was December 2011. Took the bus from Athens, had an ok time.
The second time, I tried to take my husbands family in July 2012 but we were rejected at the door because my father in law, who is in his late 70s, was turned away because he was wearing Khaki shorts and a golf shirt. (it was the heat wave so 40 degrees out) The shorts and shirt was pressed. After we were told we could not go in because he was not wearing pants, a man in ripped jeans and dirty running shoes came out. The woman who told us this, was not very sympathetic in both English and Greek. We will not be returning.

Inside, it is quite smoky so be ready for that.

“The Most Reputed and Distinguished Game halls in Europe!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

I came in touch with some people of the Casino but I cannot say that I visited it this time. I know from friends who keep coming here and I am told that it is one of the most reputed and distinguished game halls throughout Europe.
There are 87 gaming tables, 1.000 modern slot machines including a VIP room. “Tholos” which in Greek means dome has been created to meet the needs of Greek and international jet setters.
It has a sophisticated style combined with an impeccable quality of services with numerous entertainment options. If you seek a unique and prestigious experience then drop by and live this experience in full. It is open 24 hours a day.

“Welcome to the 80`s Dynasty of cash”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

The outer appearance is everything you could expect from a casino. Nicely kept building, stylish gardening, some water elements, security on the front door and (valet) parking.

You go inside and you can leave your coat free of charge by the entrance. Then you get in from pretty sloppy security control to take your place on the line either as a frequent guest or new member to get your chip card for gambling. Be prepared to wait for a long time. The check-in procedure is very slow especially after midnight.

The shock comes when you are asked to pay (10 € on weekdays and 15 € on weekends) to get in! In return you get some lottery tickets and free drink coupon. But wait! In the international casino they do not accept any credit cards. I have never ever seen such a policy in a casino before... Thank God they provide some ATM´s at least to get cash.

From the inside the place is pretty big but the experience is like stepping back in time to Dallas or Dynasty TV-series set. There are plenty of tables, games and money slots to choose for (as you expect a casino to have) and a nice buffet. Non-alcohol drinks are for free. There is also a lot of staff working there but most of them are really bored with their job even they try to stay friendly with the customers.

It was nice to see the place but I would not gamble, visit or take any of my friends there again. Maybe staying at the hotel would give a better view of the overall experience there.

Tip:
However, if you wish to see the casino with your own eyes, it is about a one hour drive from Athens or you can take a bus to get there. Loutraki town is very nice place to sit by the beautiful seashore having a cup of coffee or a delicious Greek tavern dinner.

“Some things could be better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Spacious hotel, able to accomodate many customers. The fact that you have to pay to enter is very annoying. It is positive that there is a dress code alhough it should be stricter.
