Warm up your dice throwing hand, because there are numerous opportunities for St. Maarten vacationers to visit casinos during their stay.  While there are only casinos located on the Dutch side of the island, the easily crossable border means that those staying on the French side need not be left out of the action.

Casinos in St. Maarten are European style, which means the atmosphere is sophisticated and quiet.  The casinos tend to cluster around the airport and Philipsburg, where they attract cruisers.  Most have bars and restaurants, and some even offer live entertainment, with spectacles ranging from a local band playing a set to a full on stage production.  Independent casinos (those not affiliated with a resort) often offer free round trip transportation from your hotel to the casino, making it easy to plan a night out.  Note that you must be 18 to gamble and drink in St. Maarten.
