This is my review of the Aurora Casino Cabaret in Kobarid, Slovenia.
The casino in Ostend is the third casino on the northern coast of Belgium we visited on Sunday, July 1st. We started in Knokke earlier that day, from there we went to Blankenberge and finally arrived at Ostend at around 22:00. Three casinos in one day was a bit too much, especially if you are travelling by public transportation. The casino is located about 15 minuet’s tram ride from the central train station. The tram stop is just around the corner from the casino.
The casino is located in an impressive casino palace like building. Leading up to the entrance of the building, there is a very lovely, oval water pool and fountain. A big bronze monument decorates the façade. This gives a grand aura to the casino. At the entrance to the building, you take the escalator up to the first floor where the Casino is located. Admission requirements are like in all casinos in Slovenia, minimum age is 21 years and is free of charge here.
The slots area of the Aurora, Casino & Cabaret is to the right of the escalator. Most slots are the usual 5 reel video slots and there are also some electronic Multi Roulette tables. I saw a few of the traditional “one-armed bandits”. My friend wanted to play on one, as a matter of nostalgia. I took the opportunity to smoke a cigarette in the separate smoking area. The smoking area also offers a nice selection of slot machines and electronic roulette.
There was one thing that I noticed when entering the casino that unfortunately left a strong impression: the dirty wall to wall carpeting. This perplexes me. I cannot understand why a Casino in the largest city on the Slovenia coast should have a dirty carpet.
Wir sind relativ schnell ins eigentliche Casino gewechselt. Dort haben wir mindestens 20 Roulette Tische gesehen, davon waren allerdings nur fünf in Betrieb. Minimum sind zwischen zwei Euro für Plein und 10 Euro für einfache Chancen.
We have moved relatively quickly to the live games area, located to the left of the escalator . Here we counted at least 20 American Roulette tables, but only five were in operation. Minimum was 2 € for plain and 10 € for simple chances.
