Six Top Casinos in Denmark
Chic and stylish, Denmark’s top land-based casinos stand in sharp contrast to the neon kitsch of Las Vegas and similar gambling centres. Located in six of the Scandinavian country’s major cities, these casinos have an age limit of 18, fairly relaxed dress codes, and offer a range of games.
The majority ensure that there is a good selection of slot and video poker machines, and tend to offer blackjack and roulette as staple table games, although players will also be able to find poker, baccarat, and other games at some casinos.
All six of the top casinos are linked to the Denmark Casino Jackpot network. The network is essentially a pool created by the casinos, and has a reputation for paying out substantial amounts of money.
Casino Copenhagen, the country’s largest casino, is open daily from 2pm until 4am. The complex features the casino, bars, restaurants, and a hotel with more than 500 rooms.
140 slot and video poker machines, as well as table games and card games such as blackjack, baccarat, craps, Punto Banco, Oasis Stud, Texas Hold’em, and variations of roulette can be found on the spacious casino floor. Bets on the poker cash game tables can be raised from 8.15pm.
The only casino in Denmark’s North Jutland, Casino Aalborg is a small establishment with games, an in-house restaurant, and an affiliated hotel. The venue is open from 8pm until 3am during the week, and from 8pm until 4am on weekends.
With a much smaller player base than Casino Copenhagen, this casino’s floor features only 30 slot and video poker machines. Its games tables are focussed mostly on blackjack and roulette, including American and electronic roulette. The casino also has poker cash tables that offer Texas Hold’em.
Royal Casino Aarhus
The Royal Casino in Aarhus is one of Denmark’s medium-sized casinos. It operates from 7pm until 3am during the week, and from 7pm until 4am on weekends. The hotel attached is the Royal Hotel.
Visitors to the casino have a choice of 60 slot and video machines, and table games that include blackjack, American roulette, and poker. Among the poker games offered are Texas Hold’em, Omaha, and Seven Card Stud.
Casino Marienlyst Helsingor
Located in the city made famous by Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Casino Marienlyst in Helsingor is another of Denmark’s medium-sized casinos. Like the others, it also keeps fairly conservative hours, being open from 7pm until 3am during the week, and from 7pm until 4am on weekends.
The casino also has 60 slot and video poker machines, and the number of games tables stands at nine. Among the games offered at the tables are blackjack, American roulette, and Texas Hold’em and Omaha poker.
Casino Odense, on the island of Funen and in the country’s third-largest city, is one of the smallest of Denmark’s six casinos.
Its slot and video poker machines number approximately 40, while its game tables offer blackjack and American roulette. There are three tables that also offer Texas Hold’em poker games.
The casino is open from 7pm until 3am during the week, and from 7pm until 4am on weekends.
Casino Munkebjerg Vejle
Located in Vejle, Casino Munkebjerg Vejle is a medium-sized casino in Denmark. It keeps similar hours to those casinos outside the capital, and features 70 slot and video poker machines, and games tables with blackjack, roulette, and poker.
