Holland casino, which is partly owned by the Dutch government, is the only company that has a license to offer casino games in the Netherlands. Holland casino has 14 establishments spread across the country. One of their flagships: Holland Casino Scheveningen.
Holland Casino Scheveningen is situated very close to the beach in the heart of the Scheveningen, a very popular holiday destination and well known for its tradition of fishing.
In October 1976 Holland Casino Scheveningen opened their doors in the famous Kurhaus. After almost 20 years, the casino reached its limits and the management decided to move the casino to the much bigger building across the street where it reopened at the 15th of December 1995.
Holland Casino Scheveningen is really state of the art. Over the last years, the management of Holland Casino has changed its course drastically as the profits went down. The biggest change:  totally rebuild, refurnish and restyle every casino. The establishment in Scheveningen was one of the first and reopened on the 7th of March 2012. The result is fantastic. Holland Casino Scheveningen has everything for an exciting night out.
Once you are in Scheveningen, its hard to miss the casino. The outside of the building is an absolute eye catcher with a spectacular and almost "un Dutch" lightshow, all in the colour of the Casinos logo.
When you enter the building its immediately obvious that they took care of every detail. The entrance, the gaming areas,  the bars, the restaurants and even the restrooms and smoking areas, everything is state of the art and it just fits.( Maybe the only thing we don't really understand are the white ceiling panels).
The offer of gaming tables (38 in total) is very wide: American Roulette, Electronic Roulette, Blackjack, Punto Banco, several poker games, a poker pit (6 tables), a money Wheel, its all there and as in any other Holland Casino establishment, they didn't cut back on the used materials. John Huxley Roulette wheels, Cammegh displays, OneToSix card shuffle machines, Fournier playing cards, and so on, and so on.
Also the offer of slot machines is wide and varied. The casino offers over 600 machines with several limits, starting at Eur0,01 per spin.
You'll find the gaming tables on ground level and on the first floor. The poker pit is also on the first floor and the slot machines are on all 3 floors. Besides that, Holland Casino Scheveningen has a high roller pit. The minimum bets in this Area starts at Eur50,00 and all your drinks are on the house.
The restaurants & bars:
With Holland Casinos slogan "a good location for a great night out" they are aiming for a wider audience than just gamblers. This means that the casino has much more to offer. Holland Casino Scheveningen has a restaurant where you can enjoy a great meal at competitive prices in a very relaxed ambiance (we recommend to make a reservation as the place is very popular). Besides that they have a snack corner where you go for a quick bite.
On every flour there is a bar. The bar on the second flour is an absolute great place, especially from Thursday to Saturday when there is a band or a DJ and the dance Floor will be filled with people, ready and dressed to party.
Doesn't have this great casino any downsides? Of course they have!
Especially on weekends, it can take very long before you can enter the casino as the lines at registration are long and the process is not so quick. As the casino is close to the beach, they allow guests (in summer) to wear short, sleeveless shirts, slippers, etc. Although we really understand that the casino can use every customer, it just doesn't fit the into the big picture.
Another point of improvement: at some days they keep a lot of gaming tables closed, even when the casino is packed. This means that its sometimes almost impossible to play a table game.
Nevertheless, our final conclusion is that Holland Casino Scheveningen has it all!
The casino sets an excellent example to other casinos and its absolutely a place to put on your "to do list". We'lll guarantee you will like it!
Finally some practical details:
Holland casino Scheveningen is open every day (except the 31st of December) from 10:00 till 03:00. At the cashier you can change all the common currencies into euros and the official dress code is smart casual. You always have to register with a valid ID and you must be at least 18 to enter. If you went to the casino more than 3 times a year, you'll automatically join the Favorites program. With this program you'll get free entrance (normal price Eur5,00) and you can collect players points which you can use for discounts on food and drinks or to buy Gifts. There are to levels: Favorites Black & Favorites Platinum.
Overall a great casino to visit, especially the location. If you are done in the casino you can stroll along the boulevard or visit one of the many bars, restaurants nearby. Its easy to get to by public transportation. If you go by car there are plenty oppurtunities to parc. I have visi alot of casino's in the netherlands and scheveningen is my favorite one to go to.
