The Philippines is known for their resorts. Many of them are designed to take advantage of beautiful surrounding landscapes. This often makes them seem simple in appearance, even if they’re teeming with luxury within. A lot of tourists travel to the Philippines specifically to enjoy these kinds of accommodation, and to relax in some of the world’s most pristine beach environments. In addition to tranquil, toned down resorts, the country is also home to some glitzier and more entertaining venues. In fact, it’s become one of the busier countries in the world for casino resorts, offering a combination of island charms and resort attractions.
With that in mind, we wanted to look at some of the key features of the most impressive and popular casinos in the Philippines.
Solaire Resort & Casino
This is one of the most beautiful casinos in the Philippines, and is located in something of a hub for casino activity in Manila. Built to overlook Manila Bay, it’s an amazing seaside attraction, with decidedly modern buildings surrounding some more traditional, tranquil pool and beach settings. The ornate casino within the Solaire is dominated by card tables and rows of slot machines, though it’s all made more interesting by the resort’s special promotions. One promotion sees casino giving away a car every day, and they even allow players to use game winnings to pay for dining experiences through an “Earn & Dine” program. It’s definitely a unique place to relax and play.
City Of Dreams Manila
This is a massive casino that’s built more or less across the street from the Solaire. As the further inland of the two casinos, it doesn’t have the same seaside charms. That said, as an actual casino it’s probably the more impressive of the two. City Of Dreams is downright stunning from a gaming standpoint. In 2017 many casino fans enjoy playing games through their computers and mobile devices, instead of in person. There are advantages to playing games online, including low minimum bets, large jackpots, and in-game help. But even with the popularity of online casinos City of Dreams still stands out. It boasts massive gaming selections, with more than 350 tables and 1,600 slot machines on the floor—not to mention more than 1,600 electric table games.
This is the casino at the Waterfront resort at Cebu City. It’s probably best known for some of the attractions more typical of a Las Vegas establishment. There are plenty of slot and table gaming options, but Casino Filipino also has an emphasis on organized card tournaments, as well as on celebrity entertainment shows. In some ways that makes for a more formal environment, but you can easily enjoy yourself playing games on your own visit.
