Portugal land-based casinos – Big gaming houses in Lisbon and beyond

The country of Portugal straddles a line between liberalized and conservative political attitudes regarding casino gambling. Today the country hosts nine land-based casinos, though the country is sectioned off into zones for purposes of establishing gaming; this means that the various casinos are somewhat widespread throughout the country.

Most of the Portuguese casinos are located in tourist areas, with the notable exception of Casino Lisboa, which was established in the heart of downtown Lisbon in 2002. Beyond the big city and its outskirts, casinos may be found in Espinho, Figueira da Foz, Montegordo, Portimao, Povoa de Varzim, Quarteira and on Madeira Island.

The honor for biggest gaming outlet in Portugal is Casino Estoril, located outside of Lisbon. After the crazy 1,200 slot machine/video poker games, there are opportunities to wager on greyhound racing, five table games and Texas Hold ‘Em poker.
