http://caribya.com/st.kitts/casinos/

the site says there are 3 casinos in St Kitts.
i couldnt find one of them, but i found one not on the list.
Maybe the one I couldn't find got bought out by the one i found??
all casinos take US Dollars.

1) Ma Pau casino (by pier)



mixture of old and newish slots.
Horrible VP (ie: 6/5 bp) but progressives at .25 denom. I've seen the Royal at $1600.
no real tables, but 2 Roulette e-Tables,

2) Casino at the Marriott hotel in Frigate Bay



Huge casino. Mixture of old and newish slots.
has table games but not open when i was there.

3) Casino not in the list from the link above:
Ma Pau casino (across the street from the Marriott)





very small casino of about 25 new slots and 1 Roulette e-Table.
looks newly renovated.


Other Notes:
- Taxi rates are regulated by the govt. https://www.stkittstourism.kn/plan/getting-around#taxi-minibus
even though the Rates .pdf is dated 2011, i found those rates are still being used.

the .pdf says it costs $12/person to/from the pier and marriott. if 5 or more people, then it drops to $3/person. (most taxi's i saw were taxi vans that hold at least 12.)
what i found is that the taxi driver will charge $12 per trip and divide the per person costs with the minimum being $3/person.
ie: if 3 people going, then he'll charge $4/person. if 10 people, he'll charge $3/person. you dont need to know each other.

- Ma Pau casinos dont use TiTo ticketing system for their slots.
You can put cash into the slot but You have to use a card (free) to cash out. the amount is deposited from the slot onto the card.
they do not give change when you cash out at the cashier. so if your card is $71.87, they will only give you $71.
you can keep the card after you cash out in case you want to play some more.

- 'Ma Pau pier' and 'Ma Pau near the Marriott' use 2 different cards.
you cant mix and match.

I have only visited casino #2 on your list, back in 2009, and I had some confusion on the name of that casino. I told my story of that visit when I posted my souvenir chip here.

Google is wrong for opening times:


I called same # from pic. (Don't bother with the Toll Free # (866) 302-9870. No one picks up.)
Person who answered said opening is 4pm for both slots and table games.

Also, updated taxi pricing:
https://www.visitstkitts.com/plan-your-trip/getting-around-st-kitts#taxi-minibus

From that link is this 2021 price list of $20 per taxi (not per person) to Marriott:

It is interesting I suppose to see what else it out there but otherwise - whatís the point? Go to the West Indies to visit a dumpy casino unless you plan on playing?

Iíve been inside the Monte Carlo casino to see it once but every other time there didnít even bother.

The best gaming in the world is in Vegas.

When we travel other than to Vegas donít even bother to go inside the casinos that might be around or even think of reporting it on a gambling forum unless maybe staying inside a casino resort.

Unless the point of entering is to playÖnow reports of actual gaming inside the casinos to compare with Vegas that might be something.
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people. https://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/betting-systems/33908-the-adventures-of-mdawg/

Very naive. The best gaming changes daily or weekly. Sometime the best games can be in Russia, the next week maybe in South America.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.
