The games offered

Slot machines

Slot machines offer an immediate gaming experience that is accessible to all. Devoid of any complex strategy, these "one-armed bandits" are seductive in their simplicity. If you're just starting, 

  1. Start by inserting a banknote or game ticket directly. 
  2. Opt for 3-window mechanical or video reels to start with.
  3. Choose low stakes, starting at 1 cent.
  4. Press "Play" to start the reels.
  5. If you win, collect your winnings or continue playing.
  6. In the event of a jackpot, enjoy the light effects and winnings. The casino can even give you a cheque. 

Although popular, these machines remain the most lucrative for casinos and can lead to problems of compulsive gambling. Preventive measures are taken to encourage a responsible approach to gambling.

Electronic games 

Electronic English Roulette offers an automated experience with an electronic cylinder, individual touch screens, and messages guiding players. The software ensures the randomness of the game, instantly displaying the results on individual and group screens. Winnings are credited automatically, and to stop, press "Pay".

Table games 

Alongside the machines, the table games offer a more strategic experience. English roulette, poker, punto banco, and blackjack, these games often require a strategy to maximize the chances of success. They are played in groups, adding a social dimension to the entertainment.
