Ponta Delgada, capital of Sao Miguel island (largest of the 9 Azores islands).




casino is in a hotel near the pier and is not open till 4pm.
i will only have 15min to explore before i have to run back to the ship.

5min was spent on players card. you cant get in w/o it.
sign up promos only for residents, not tourists. :(

2 old e-Roulette tables.
2 regular roulette tables. (not open)
2 blackjack tables: pays 3:2, dont know if stand on s17 since wording is in Portuguese, no idea # of decks. (not open)

vp sucks.
you can bet up to 20 coins and a royal at max bet pays 16k units. didnt check if a Royal is proportional if you bet smaller amounts.
@0.20 euro denom, i saw 8/5/4 db and 7/5 JoB. didnt check the rest.

1/2 the slots are modernish. the other 1/2 are typical multi-game no name machines.

cash in but there's no ticket out. everything is handpay. (ANNOYING!)
when you cash out, the machine locks up.
you flag down a slot attendant and s/he will come back with cash.

theres a poker room with 2 poker tables (not open).

Sounds as if your experience in Ponta Delgada was quite similar to mine. I posted my recollections in the Casino Chip of the Day thread almost a year ago after our cruise ship stopped in this port. Did you make it up to King's View (described in a bogus chip-of-the-day post about Monte Palace shortly before the one linked)?

I posted some info about it last year, intending for it to be entertaining. Perhaps I failed.
