The best casinos in Singapore might be few in number but they attract people from far and wide, offering some real glitz and glamour to go along with the full range of casino games that you’d expect. The first Singapore casino only opened in 2006, so this is an industry still in its infancy when compared with Las Vegas or Macau, but as Singapore is one of the world’s banking capitals, and with many high-rollers regularly travelling through, you can be sure that high stakes are being risked every night of the week.
As well as bricks-and-mortar casinos, Singapore has a growing number of casino cruises, which will sail out to international waters to avoid any inconvenient regulations that might arise on dry land. We have included the best of both so you can choose what is right for you.
It’s worth noting there is a smart-casual dress code at many Singapore casinos. All of them state no shorts or flip-flops.
Marina Bay Sands
The lavish 15,000-square-metre casino features almost 500 gaming tables, 1,600 slot machines (known by the locals as ‘jackpot machines’) as well as more than 30 private gaming rooms. In the casino’s own words: “Marina Bay Sands offers a vast selection of the newest and most popular electronic gaming machines worldwide”. Minimum bets for live games depend on the table, but start from a minimum of S$25.
