Cyprus is home to about 25 casinos, mostly in the northern part of the country. In Cypriot casinos, players can expect to find some traditionally-offered table games and card games including blackjack, roulette, poker, baccarat, and keno. Players may also discover rummy, backgammon and “wheel of fortune” games.

It is the Northern section in which most casinos in Cyprus are based, and Greek Cypriots are among the most frequent gaming tourists with European Union and Israeli citizens. On the other hand, fans of casino cruises should head directly south to Limassol to board (along with about 600 other passengers) the Coral Casino Cruise Ship.
