    Casino Question

    I haven't been able to find a recent answer so thought I would try this board. Does anyone know if drinks are free if playing slots or at tables? If free, does that apply to all casinos or just particular ones? Also, which casinos are most recommended, mostly for slots? We will be there for the first time in June and like to hang out at casinos in the evenings!! Can't wait to go.

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum

    YES drinks are free in all of the casinos. (for players of slots, cards, roulette, dice etc..)

    lots of decent slot machines at Alhambra, Marriott, Ritz.

    least smokey is @ the Ritz (nicely ventilated)
    worst smokey imo is Alhambra and Crystal

    i have some favorites........Alhambra, Marriott, Crystal
    i am a slot player for the most part
    my husband likes craps.


    we like to hang out at the casino in the evenings too when in aruba.

    Nice but smokey IMO. The least smokey is the Ritz as Andrea mentioned and they also serve high end drinks for free in REAL glasses.

    There are no free drinks in any casino........ you just pay for them differently...! But yes, you will be given drinks that you will not be charged for. The casino gets their money back and then some as you play!

    ....and, thanks for joining us on the forum!

    Marriott is smokey and it takes forever to get a drink. The Ritz is not that smokey and they bring drinks very quickly.
