Kursaal Casino, Ostend

Kursaal Casino

Most people might never have heard of Ostend, but this small town on the coast of Belgium is actually the largest in the region and has a well kept treasure for all casino lovers.

The Kursaal casino in Ostend was originally opened in 1857 but was unfortunately destroyed during the Second World War.The building was later rebuilt and got a more modern feel to it. Today, the casino holds a concert room, a restaurant with a beautiful terrace, and of course, several gaming rooms.

Brits crossing the channel

Before World War II, Ostend was a highly frequented gambling resort for the upper-class British citizens, especially since Queen Victoria prohibited gambling in the ´20s. The gambling law was applied throughout the entire Kingdom, making it impossible for the British people to enjoy gambling in England or in any colonial territory serving under Union Jack. However, the Queen's law never applied to Belgium, something that made the Kursaal Casino a very popular destination for the U.K. gamblers during the roaring twenties.

Slots a lot

Up until only a few years ago, slot machines was prohibited in Belgium, but today this well-known casino interior can be found pretty much anywhere inside the walls of the casino. There are approximately 120 slot machines placed around the roulette and poker tables. The bets on the machines vary from 0.1 up to €1.
