A number of us will be headed to Barcelona soon. Spearmaster, Greedygirl and I have been to the casino down near the main harbor. I think I won about Euro 20 at video poker. It was a bit odd - most of the video slot machines were no-name brands, or some of the ones I've seen in Macau. I'll do a more detailed report upon my return.

From 17 November 2004's newsletter:

https://www.casinomeister.com/newsletters/

That evening, Ted, Debbee and I went to Barcelona to check out the "Casino de Barcelona". It was smaller than expected with a few non-descript video slots and video poker. None of the VP machines had full payout. But to Greedy Girl's surprise, I doubled my 20 in about 5 minutes at the VP machine and cashed out. The place gave me the creeps with its low ceilings and smoky patrons. We left and grabbed some chow in the Gothic district. There they had an open air market selling antiques and artifacts - a very cool place to browse. And the Greedy Girl commenced to shop which I easily tolerated since I am very much accustomed to tagging along with the missus while she looks for shoes or other fascinating apparel. And I thought to myself, and which I elucidated later that evening "I look upwards and pray to God each and everyday and thank him for making me a man. If I were a woman, I couldn't handle the plumbing nor the shopping. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

The Casino is divided in 2 parts with 2 different entrances

An area with Slot and Video Poker machines.It is open from 11 AM till 5 AM.
The entry is free and there is not really a dress code.

The Casino with Gaming tables (and also Slot and Video Poker machines) has another entrance.Entry fee is 4.5 euro.
Open from 3 PM till 5 AM.
There is some dress code, but it is (for example) not necessary to wear a jacket.

I think I remember this. I couldn't believe a casino would charge an entrance fee to get in :rolleyes:

The whole dress code thing is such a joke. That's why I like Vegas so much.

i recall reading that some of the poker games there were quite social and it was common for players to show their hole cards one at a time in suspenseful fashion. that was a few years back though.

That's my casino ^^ Most casinos here are owned by the Peralada group (including Casino de Barcelona), they charge an entry fee from 3 to 7 in their casinos and most slots are exclusive.

Most of the casinos i have been to outside uk, excluding usa charge you for entrace/soft drinks which is indeed ridiculous.

More importantly, where are you staying so I can cause some serious ruckus? Look for the hobo-looking dude with a nice disposition.

That is if I decide to go gambling next week.

TIP FOR TRAVELLERS: On the entrance, say that you're going to play a Poker S&G and they won't charge you the fee :cool:

hey everyone,

i will be in Barcelona in July, and i already planned to visit their Casino. They have an entrance fee of 4.50 euro as per their website, and they have a dress code. You cant wear shorts, so i guess a jean and a shirt will be fine.

is it worth it or are the slots not very good?
