The holiday season is the perfect time to travel see different parts of the world, and if you are looking for a Christmas gambling destination then we’ve got you covered. Lucky Nugget has found the five best places to spend Christmas playing fantastic casino games.


The capital of Germany will be the ideal place for you to combine gambling and Christmas. As well as a host of iconic features in the city, at this time of year you can take in the beautiful Christmas markets which will really get you in the festive spirit.

Once you’ve enjoyed yourself there, head to the casinos and there’s plenty to choose from. Whilst there are many smaller casinos dotted about the city, the two main ones are Spielbank Casino and Fernsehturm, both of which are very accommodating. Spielbank Casino is arguably the standout, with three floors and all sorts of games that are guaranteed to keep you entertained.


Spielbank Do-Hohensyburg
The Spielbank Do-Hohensyburg is the biggest casino in Germany, boasting 428 slot machines!

Perhaps best known for the successful football team, Dortmund is located in the North Rhine-Westphalia and boasts the biggest casino in the country.

The Spielbank Do-Hohensyburg is an impressive 65,000 square feet, three levels high and has 428 slot machines as well as many live table and regular table games. Basically, it’s the best place to be for gamblers in Germany – and with hotels nearby and a Michelin Star restaurant on-site, it will be the perfect place to have fun this Christmas.


For poker fans The Fitz in Dublin is extremely popular

After taking in the Guinness factory and several other notable places in the city you can get your casino buzz at The Fitzwilliam Casino and Card Club – or ‘The Fitz’ for short. It’s an especially place to visit if you’re a poker fan, as it has built quite the reputation over the years for hosting the thrilling table game.
