French Casinos: Nice

14 Dec 2009 | 14:42 Author:

The beautiful city of Nice is famous for many things. La promenade des Anglais, the old town, its glorious location on the Mediterranean just 30km from Italy, the famous hotels, and much more.

Nestled in the Alpes-Maritimes prefecture, between the moutaains and sea, it is one of the most visited places in France with over 4 million visitors every year.

As a result of ts cultural riches, the charm of its various neighborhoods, its architecture, its beach and its host of restaurants, the second city of the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur is hugely popular.

It would be a shame, however, during your next visit to this charming region if you were to miss the casino Ruhl, one of the iconic features of the city. This legendary casino, owned by Groupe Lucien Barriere, is the temple of entertainment for Nice and its surroundings.

An Impressive Playground

Ranking between the 3rd and 7th place in the last 10 years rank by gross gaming, this luxury casino has one of the largest selection of slots in the country with over 300 machines. Two different atmospheres await you inside the main hall, located on two levels. Firstly, there's the electric atmosphere of the Golden Gate, a place of celebration centered around the bar, which is in contrast with the cosier and more relaxing feel round in the Dolce Vita room.

Slots, video slots, video poker, roulette, progressive jackpots... the variety of machines to try out will satisfy even the most demanding of gamers.

Under the chandeliers and majestic scenery, the table games room is host to the following:

  • 2 French Roulette tables

  • 4 English Roulette tables

  • 4 Blackjack tables

Fan of poker? This casino is for you. In addition to two Stud Poker tables, a very elegant poker room honors the world's most popular game of the moment: the famous Texas Hold'em. No fewer than six tables with a capacity of ten players are put at your disposal, with blinds up to €250/€500.

In terms of other entertainment, the Casino Ruhl offers several options. Some prefer to sip a cocktail in the futuristic American Café, a flashy bar inspired by Pop Art and overlooking the hall of slot machines, while others choose the restaurant La Dolce Vita and its fine cuisine.

Alternatively, there is the superb cabaret which has quality performances throughout the year. Book in advance to avoid disappointment!
