Casino's with sports betting

Besides Alhambra, what other casinos offer sports betting? Alhambra is pretty lousy, looking for some where a little nicer where I can play blackjack and bet on sports, thanks.

Well , I would not call Alhambra - "lousy"

I have not seen sports betting in all the times I have been to Aruba (6 times)

Aruba has gambling--- BUT--- that is not what the island is about !!!!!

The Holiday Inn casino used to have sports betting. Not sure if they still do, but its nothing fancy.

Holiday Inn is where I go IF I want to bet if there is a big football game on or something like that. Not sure they take all sports though. I believe there is one on each end of the Island.

I believe the Crystal Casino at the Renaissance might suit your needs. It is the only 24-hr casino on the island and according to one of the destination experts, has a good sports book. You can definitely play blackjack there.

The HI has a sports book and its decent at best. They create lines and print out daily sheets. You will find them on the left and side shelves near the spoorts book.

Chacun à son goût--I'm no fan of casino gambling, either (the thoroughbreds at Saratoga in August are another story), but if that's what floats someone's boat on his or her hoiliday, I say HAVE AT IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Ps- its nothing like vegas if you have been there. There are not dozens of TVs with games on, its really just a spot to place a wager. Enjoy.

The HI no longer has a sports book. I believe it was moved to the Occidental which has the same owner.

Yeah, Holiday Inn was shut down when I was there in early March. Seaport casino downtown has sports betting. Last time I was at Marriott & Raddison, they had sport betting MACHINES if you simply want to place a bet.
