Casino Guide Sint Maarten

This is a guide to brick and mortar as well as online casinos in Sint Maarten (a small Caribbean island nation, with a population of 41 K, a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands). Find out which are the best casinos and online casino sites in Sint Maarten, or learn more about the legal status of casino gambling in the country.

 

Online casinos in Sint Maarten

Legal status of St Maarten internet casino sites: not regulated

 

Saint Martin is an island located in the Caribbean Sea. There are actually two separate jurisdictions on the island, the Collectivity of Saint Martin a French overseas collectivity, where French online casino gambling laws apply, and the Dutch Sint Maarten (this one), part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, where the gambling legislation is not based on Dutch gambling laws, and where gambling is technically unregulated, despite the country having 13 casinos (more of this below, in the brick & mortar casinos  section).

The Dutch side of the island, even though it’s a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, did not inherit the Dutch online gambling legislation (according to which online casinos are illegal, but it’s not applicable to St. Martin).

Sint Marten, actually has no online gambling legislation and regulation whatsoever at this point. Online casinos are completely unregulated on this side of the island (and de facto on the other, French side as well, but for different reasons, and in a different context).

UPDATE 2021: and as of the last update of this guide, there is still no sign of any online casino act of any kind, despite promises to the contrary by the government, for 10+ years at this point… (maybe this is the French side of the island after all… ;) )

This means that there are no licensed online casinos in Saint-Martin and local players and tourists alike can participate in online casino gambling freely. Although, due to the small size, and constituent country satus of the Netherlands, only a few online casinos accept players from the territory.

By scrolling below, you can see a list of online casinos, which accept players from Sint Maarten.

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Sint Maarten?

Yes, the online casino gambling laws of any country only apply to citizens and lawful permanent residents, if you are a tourist (or a non-citizen expat, or illegal), you can play online freely while enjoying your vacation.

 

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Sint Maarten:

N/A, online casino licenses are not issued.

Land-based casinos in Sint Maarten

Legal status of brick & mortar casinos: not regulated, de facto legal

 

Gambling establishments, including casinos, are technically unregulated in Sint Maarten, but they are de facto legal. The official regulation only seems to consist of a single document, called Casino Policy: Rules of the Game*, which is more of a guideline, and it is not a legally binding act. This is extremely surprising, considering that the island nation has 13 casinos, and this means that all of them actually operate illegally at this point (officially they are tolerated, according to the government, quite a tolerant government, tolerating 13 illegally operating casinos, which are handling the money of guests, and their credit cards on a daily basis, without any government supervision, regulation…).

All of the casinos are located on this side, the Dutch side of the island, and the French side gets 20x less tourists. Of course, this comes at a price. Apart from the casinos, there are brothels (also tolerated), and there is also a growing problem with drugs (not officially tolerated, yet…, and on the French side there is a big issue with poverty and crime). That’s why Sin Maarten is sometimes called the ‘Sin City of the Caribbean’, drugs, casinos, prostitution, of course, this is not what they put on the brochures….

The government has been considering capping the number of casinos at 10. A further restriction is that, in theory, locals may only enter the casinos maximum 4 times, per year. But this rule does not seem to be enforced. And considering that the gambling is still not regulated, despite promises for 10+ years (UPDATE 2021: it is still not regulated), I doubt anything will change, and I strongly doubt that existing casinos will have to close. After all, tourism, and associated economic activity is the lifeblood of the country. And we all know: “money talks, dogs bark” (it’s a Hungarian saying).

The largest casino in Sint Marteen is the Port de Plaisance Resort and Princess Casino located in Cole Bay. Apart from the casino, the resort complex also contains a hotel, a country club and a marina.

You can find the TOP 5 biggest and best rated (based on the average of public online reviews) St. Marten casinos in the list below.

 

Can locals visit the casinos in the Collectivity of Saint Martin?

Yes, locals can visit the casinos too, not just tourists. But technically only 4x per person, per year, but this is not really enforced.

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of St. Martin:

No casino licensing and regulatory body yet. Casino licenses are not issued.

In theory, according to the Casino Policy: Rules of the Game document, casinos should be attached to hotels, but only one of the 13 is attached to a hotel (this illustrates perfectly just how seriously casino operators treat these guidelines….).

Port de Plaisance Resort and Princess Casino

Port de Plaisance Resort and Princess Casino, address: 129 Union Rd, Cole Bay

Also known by the nickname “The Little Las Vegas of Sint Maarten” Port de Plaisance Resort is actually a huge complex, but the casino is the main attraction. The Princess Casino, as the name would suggest, is part of the Princess International Group, which has about 30 really big, luxury casino all throughout the globe. Most of these casinos are either the best or the best rated in the country, which they are located in (and are priced accordingly…), this is the case here too, and this is the biggest casino of Sint Marteen currently.

Games: around 500 gaming machines (said to be the best machines in Saint Marteen, according to reviews), around 15 tables (craps, blackjack, baccarat, roulette, Texas Holdem Poker)

They also regularly organize bingo games.

 

Video of Port de Plaisance Resort and Princess Casino:

 

Opening hours: 24/7

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: no official dress code, but smart casual recommended

Entrance fee: no entrance fee

Meta review analysis: the casino gets very good reviews, 4.5/5, on reviews sites, no major problems, but this is a really upscale expensive place, be prepared for that, quality is expensive, this is the best rated casino in Sint Marteen

 

18+, ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

2., Hollywood Casino
This is a picture of the front entrance and building of Hollywood Casino in Simpson Bay. To the right of the picture you can read more about this casino.

Hollywood Casino

Hollywood Casino, address: 37 Billy Folly Rd., Simpson Bay

It calls itself a “boutique” casino (marketing buzzword for small), but it’s actually not that small, it’s barely smaller than an average sized St. Marteen casino. Nevertheless, it’s definitely one of the best looking casinos. They also have a “jump up casino” in Philipsburg (it’s a slot hall technically, with only gaming machines, not a casino).

Games: around 50 slot machines, around 5 tables (blackjack, roulette, baccarat)

+ they have one poker table for cash games and tournaments

 

Video of Hollywood Casino:

 

Opening hours: “OPEN 1 PM to LATE” according to the official website, I have no idea what exactly “late” would mean, but my best guess is that they are probably open till there is a significant number of paying customers

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: no official dress code, but smart casual is recommended

Entrance fee: no entrance fee

Meta review analysis: the casino gets good reviews, 4/5, on reviews sites, no major problems

 

18+, ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

3., Casino Royale in Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Spa
This is a picture of the main building of Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Spa, where Casino Royale is located. This is the third element of this list of the TOP 5 casino gambling establishments in Sint Maarten. You can find the other gambling establishment on this list below and above this one. To the right of the picture you can read more about this casino.

Casino Royale

Casino Royale, address: 1 Rhine Road, Maho Village Maho Beac

Claiming to be the largest casino in Sint Marten (it’s actually not, it’s only the second largest in terms of total number of games, which most people use to rank casinos). But the casino has nothing to be ashamed of, an it definitely belongs Among the top 5 Sint Maarten casinos. The reason why it is number 3 and not number one is because Hollywood Casino above has slightly better reviews online, and at the ned of the day, it’s not the size that matters, but how much fun, how satisfied the players are, and Hollywood Casino seem to be doing better in that regard (it’s probably cheaper, this place looks really expensive…).

With 22 tables of gaming, you can choose from R. The Casino’s new Sportsbook features

 

Games: around 400 slot machines, around 22 tables (American Roulette, craps, baccarat, blackjack, Three Card Poker, Let It Ride, Texas Hold’em) + an unknown number of electronic bingo machines

They also have a poker room, and a sportsbook with self-service kiosks that handle all straight bets and parlays for any sport, including the NBA, MLB, NFL and all European Soccer leagues.

Casino Rouge et Noir Sxm

Casino Rouge et Noir Sxm, address: 6 Back St, Philipsburg

A beach front casino, in the historic capital of Sint Maarten, the perfect casino for tourists. And it is also one of the best rated casino on the island. Sadly, the casino only has a Facebook page (actually, two Facebook pages with slightly different names for some reason), therefore, information was scarce, but I tried to find all the essential information, which you can see below.

Games: around 140 slots, and an unknown number of table games (Texas Hold’em Poker, blackjack, American Roulette and Antillean Poker)

They have bingo.

5., Paradise Plaza Casino & Sports Book
This is a picture of the front entrance of Paradise Plaza Casino & Sports Book, located in Simpson Bay. This is the fifth and last gaming venue on this list of the TOP 5 gambling establishments, you can find the others on this list, above this one. To the right of the picture you can read more about this casino.

Paradise Plaza Casino & Sports Book

boxing, baseball, soccer, hockey, football, basketball, and horse racing on big-screen televisions, address: 69 Welfare Rd, Cole Bay

One of the bigger casino venues in St. Martin. Sadly, they don’t have any online presence, not even a Facebook page (which is very weird, considering that casinos rely on tourists mostly, meaning, none of them are locals, official, reliable info online would be super important, huge missed opportunity). Information is hard to come by without official sources, and because of this, I can not guarantee the veracity of the info below, although I did my best to compare multiple sources, it seems all of them are least 7+ years outdated…

Games: around 250 slots, and an unknown number of table games 

They have a sports betting section too, with boxing, baseball, soccer, hockey, football, basketball, and horse racing on big-screen televisions.

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.

That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.

Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivizing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
By being on this site, you agree to terms and conditions, and privacy policy. You must be at least 18, and if you are a gambling addict, or a citizen of Hungary, please leave the site.
