Well, this is an easy question, but also a tricky question to answer. You see, Vegas is literally a 24 hour city. You can gamble all day, every day. The city was founded on ambling, so it makes sense that they let you gamble at whatever time of the day takes your fancy. So you can wake up in the Four Seasons at midday, play some blackjack there. Then have some lunch and play craps just a bit down the road at Excalibur. Maybe spend the majority of your day in the Bellagio, soaking up the atmosphere, trying to spot some big names while playing craps. Then have some dinner at 8pm, go to Circus Circus, break the bank there until you’re asked politely to leave as you’ve won too much at 3am, back to the Four Seasons for a light snack while playing some slots, grab some breakfast and then go to bed at midday. Perfect.
Elsewhere in the United States, casinos are also open 24 hours, predominantly. However, outside of the traditional gaming areas of Nevada and Atlantic City, there are a few places, mostly smaller casinos that have more traditional opening hours. To list them all would be a mammoth task, but if you do have a question about a specific casino, feel free to ask.
Once you leave North America, things start to get a bit more complicated.
Let’s say you’re traveling the UK and you want to play in casinos across the country. Well, some venues you can play 24 hours a day, especially in London. Grosvenor Casinos are open, for the most part, 24 hours a day. However, if you’re a fan of Aspers casinos, well, things start to get tricky. You see, the casino in Newcastle is open 24/7, but their Swansea casino is open between 12pm and 6am every day. Circus Casinos (formerly Stanley Casinos) vary their opening times throughout the country. For example, both Circus Casinos in Birmingham have opening times of 12pm-6am, but their casino in Newcastle is open 24/7. So, if you’re in the UK, it’s always worthwhile checking before hand before you venture out wanting an early morning game of blackjack, or a 24 hour poker session.
In Australia, the most famous casino, The Crown, is open 24/7, however, Casino Canberra has opening hours of midday-6am and the City Tattersalls Club is open between 10am-4am. So, again, like the UK, Australia isn’t all 24/7 casinos, so it pays to check out the opening hours before you venture out.
In Monte Carlo, perhaps the Mecca for high rollers, the casinos are not 24/7 and, in fact, are only open around 12 hours a day, even less. Again, throughout Europe, the opening times vary and you can’t pinpoint exactly when they open and close.
So, if you’re looking for round the clock gaming, North America, specifically Las Vegas or Atlantic City, is the place to be, but you can find 24 hour casinos in several places through the world.
But, if you don’t have a 24 hour casino near you and you fancy trying your luck, why not try an online casino instead? They are open 24/7, 365 days per year and there is a great selection of online casinos. There are always tables open – so if you are a Blackjack player for example, you don’t have to worry about there being any open Blackjack tables for the limit you wish to play. There are always games running at all limits.
