For any fan of reggae, there's always at least somewhat of a draw to Jamaica. While there are outstanding reggae artists hailing and performing from countries all over the world,
Jamaica will probably always be seen as the home of the genre, and
thus the beautiful island nation has a natural appeal to reggae fans and
artists alike. But Jamaica has dozens of other major cultural draws as
well, which reggae fans interested in visiting the country may enjoy.

In this day and age, many people have stopped thinking of casinos with regard to tourism, largely because of the massive growth in online gaming popularity.
Those who enjoy gambling these days
can simply open up their computers and wager real money against
opponents from all over the world without leaving home. In playing poker at Betfair,
which is an online casino, users can even join in a variety of live
tournaments with opponents. Additionally, they can play more traditional
offerings of video poker and other casino-style games. Point being,
it's incredibly convenient for people to gamble without ever setting
foot in a real life casino.
But in Jamaica, popular casinos still hold some sway. There's always been an allure to visiting a beautiful island destination and doing a bit of gambling while sipping a daiquiri and listening to some relaxing reggae while you're at it. So, if this is something that interests you, here's a quick look at three of the top casinos on the island!
Terra Nova Hotel (Monte Carlo Gaming)
Located in Kingston, the Terra Nova Hotel
is a popular spot for guests, offering all the luxury and beauty of an
island stay. The Monte Carlo Gaming facility is one of the main casino
gaming draws in the country, offering well over 100 games from popular
casino floor favorites to betting and card playing.
The Treasure Hunt
A facility located at Ocho Rios toward the north of the island, the Treasure Hunt
is a more complete casino experience than most you'll find dotted
around Jamaica. Poker tables, slot machines, live bingo games, and video
arcade poker are all offered, along with a festive bar and generally
glitzy atmosphere that can appeal to anyone vacationing at a beautiful
The Coral Cliff Hotel
Noted by Yahoo Voices
in a discussion on Jamaica's best casinos, the Coral Cliff Hotel in
Montego Bay is certainly a hot spot among tourists. The hotel itself is
gorgeous as it's situated right on the water. And the casino, while
small, offers some fun slot machine entertainment. Plus, it's right
alongside a karaoke lounge that can get pretty entertaining when the
hotel is active.
Really, there are small casinos and clusters of slot machines dotted throughout Jamaica. However, if you're looking for casinos that can really add something special to your trip, these are three well worth considering!
