Colombia, a country in South America, has legalized gambling only in casinos. However, mutual bets on horse racing, greyhound racing and the sport of jai alai are perhaps more popular than gambling in casinos. However, there are approximately 21 casinos in Colombia that are visited by both tourists and locals and most of these are located in Bogotá, the capital. Many of these casinos offer the usual games of blackjack, roulette and poker. Poker games may not be specifically mentioned in some casinos; however, they are available and may include Caribbean Stud, Texas and Omaha บาคาร่าสูตร Hold’em and other types of poker. However, it is important to remember that playing Three Card Monte is strictly illegal in Colombia and, if discovered, can result in imprisonment or a hefty fine.
Colombia’s casinos in Bogotá include the Casino Caribe Norte, with 129 slot machines and five table games; the Rock’n Jazz Casino, with 150 slot machines and 12 table games, and Club Jacks, with three types of poker tables. Also, there are five different Slotmania casinos, with only slot machines and gaming machines.
Colombia’s largest casino, the 32,000-square-foot Casino Caribe in Medillin has 16 table games and 400 slot machines and video games. Also in Medillin are the Aladdin Casino, the Excalibur and the Rio, which only offer slots.
