The scene in North Cyprus has hit seriously dizzy heights over the last few years, welcoming a mix of holiday makers and serious players alike.
From rambling through the scenic mountainous landscape by day to gambling the night away, NCY has become the playground of the 21stcentury vacationer.
Casino’s in North Cyprus have recently become an alternative for notable high rollers, especially from Europe and the Middle East, preferring the convenient Mediterranean location to Las Vegas, Macau and even Monte Carlo.
Located throughout the island, all NCY casinos offer a competitive range of games to suit every gambling taste, from the serious spender to the slot machine novice. Poker, blackjack, roulette, craps, punto banco, baccarat and their variations are all found at these glitzy venues.
North Cyprus is also a destination on the World Poker Tour (WPT) drawing thousands of Texas and Omaha aces to the island, and needless to say the competitive choice of casinos and gaming is enough to put a smile on even a professional poker face. Furthermore, all kinds of guaranteed prize tournaments are held throughout the year.
For those who don’t fancy a flutter, the Hotel and Casino resorts boast a wealth of on-site amenities. Expect deluxe accommodation, spa and wellbeing centres, fine dining, beach clubs and an abundance of entertainment – spectacular stage shows, piano or jazz bars, pubs and cocktail roof bars, discos and much more.
Casino resorts like to go all in on the big stage, and they draw huge artists to North Cyprus – from Turkish pop megastar Tarkan to Swedish Iranian singer and judge of Persia’s Got Talent, Arash, world renowned flamenco and salsa group Gipsy Kings to even American socialite Paris Hilton, many stars have entertained the NCY celebrity podium in recent years.
Hotel & Casino resorts really do combine luxury and elegance with indulgence and excitement. However, all casinos are walk in and open to everyone, so you do not have to be on a resort to enjoy the casino high life.
If you are a high roller though, most casinos will go all out to ensure the ultimate comfort and pleasure of their guests. Whether it be flying you in on a private jet, accommodating you in the king suite to sourcing your favourite Gurkha Royal Courtesan cigar, there are no limits to this lavish lifestyle.
