Tucked into the beautiful Scandinavian landscape is the beautiful nation of Finland. With its majestic natural beauty, wonderful culture, and carefree social style, Finland is a great place for tourists to go on their annual family vacation. One of the best parts of Finland is its vibrant nightlife and great entertainment facilities, especially dance clubs, bars, and casinos. Finland’s casinos are great places to do some people watching, enjoy delicious finger foods, and make a little money, while having fun gambling. Finland has two major casinos that offer hundreds of gaming tables and great experiences for any tourist who comes through their doors.
In the Finnish capital city of Helsinki, there is a casino called the Grand Casino Helsinki that is a hot spot for the young professional crowd and groups of friends visiting from places near and far. For those who want to enjoy the nightlife from the Grand Casino, they can go to Lucky 7As, a sleek bar that attracts young people like moths to the flame. From the bar and the dining experience, visitors can go to the spacious 29,000 square foot gaming area. Gamblers can try their hand at the highly popular Texas Hold ‘Em poker or with a more classic game like blackjack and roulette. They can also step away from the gaming table to try their hand at one of the more than three hundred slot machines that can pay out big at any moment. For visitors in Helsinki, the Grand Casino is a nice distraction or place to waste some time after a long day of vacation tours.
Another Finnish city that has invested heavily in the future of Finland’s casinos is the Arkipelag Hotel and Casino in Mariehamn. This beautiful casino is an all-inclusive environment where tourists can stay at the beautiful hotel, dine in the fine Arkipelag restaurant, and then have some fun at the slot machine or the poker table. The three gaming tables and the cozy 1,600 square foot gaming area allow tourists to play roulette and blackjack only minutes away from their hotel room.
The Arkipelag Hotel and Casino and the Grand Casino Helsinki show the potential of Finland’s casino industry. While these casinos are more diminutive than competitors in other countries, they make up for it with great service, comfortable surroundings, and great locations near other Finnish hot spots. Visitors who are passing through Mariehamn or Helsinki should consider adding these Finnish casinos to their itinerary when planning a trip.
