Bahamas Casino & Gambling Overview

Bahamas Casinos and Gambling

Country update from World Casino Directory and Scarab news: After many years of little change since gaming was legalized there have been quite a few changes in the Bahamas. Atlantis continues to grow in both area and profits but in the rest of Paradise things are changing in the Gaming world.

Bahamas is only a 30 minute flight away from America and has many Islands. Casinos have now spread finally to what is known as the family islands with the opening of Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc's, "The Casino at Emerald Bay" at the Four Seasons Resort Great Exuma. Ministers have recently reported that more casinos may open in the family islands, although casino projects at Club Med and in Bimini and Andros never came to fruition. No one knows if the "Moon" casino resort will ever happen.

In the second island of Freeport it has to be questioned if any casinos will remain open after the double whammy of the Royal Oasis closure and the announcement that the newly opened Isle of Capri casino at Our Lucaya may close. Both of these operations were severely affected by hurricanes in the last 2 years. Recent news is that a new owner has been found for both properties. Royal Oasis needs a great amount of rebuilding but the new owners can move straight in to the Isle's property.

On the main island of New Providence the Crystal Palace casino is in the hand of new owners, Bahamar Development. Having visited the management we were quite impressed by the vision they had and a few months later it seems they are on course to maybe one day rival the Atlantis.

So now there are still only 4 casinos open but things are about to change soon.
