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 bigger casinos: Holland Casino Eindhoven.
Holland casino Eindhoven opened in June 1993 and is located right in the centre of the city in a building called "Heuvel Gallerie". The casino is very easily accessible by train (Eindhoven station is only 400 meters away) and by car. The Heuvel Gallerie has a very large parking garage from where you can walk straight into the casino.
The casino When you take a look at the outside of the building, we have to be honest. Its not impressing and it not really lures you into the casino. But of course at the end all that really matters is the inside and the responsible people of Holland Casino Eindhoven have done a great job. As we already know the establishments of Holland Casino have a very high standard and Eindhoven is no exception. After registration you walk up the stairs, through the hall and straight into the gaming table area. The offer of gaming tables (23 in total) is large. American Roulette, Blackjack, Texas Hold'm Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Three card Poker, Punto Banco and Electronic Roulette (where you play live at one of the tables), its all there and all in various limits. The used materials are state of the art (John Huxley Roulette wheels, Cammegh displays, OneToSix card shuffle machines etc) and the dealers are overall very skilled, open and friendly to their guests. In the centre of the gaming area there is a beautiful bar, entirely in style of the casino, where you can enjoy a drink or quick snack. Besides the regular gaming tables, Holland Casino Eindhoven offers poker in the poker pit on the 2nd floor. Players can play cash games or (sit & go) tournaments at one of the 10 tables.
When you are a fan of slot machines, you are in the right place! With a wide range of almost 500 machines, roughly divided over 4 areas, its not hard to find your favorite game. The minimum bet starts at EUR0,01 and also for high rollers, there are plenty of opportunities. The ultimate machine in our opinion: The Mega Millions Jackpot. Although is a very expensive slot (EUR7,50 per spin), the possible payout is extreme and very tempting (currently 2.7 million Euros!).
Holland Casino is really aiming to give their customers the entire packaged. This means, besides a wide offer of table gaming and slot machines, also a place where you can have diner. And not an average quick bite, but a really good diner! The restaurant of Holland Casino Eindhoven, which is situated in the middle of the casino, is in every way a treat. It looks great and the food is excellent. An extra nice touch: its not expensive at all! The restaurant is open 7 days a week until 01:00am. Especially in weekends its recommended to make a reservation.
The points of improvement: to be honest, we have not found much. The only thing we would really like to recommend is to re-open the slot area directly to the entrance. Its the first part of the casino you see when you walk up the stairs and it just doesn't give a good impression.
But overall, we conclude that Holland Casino Eindhoven is a great casino and is definitely worth a visit (or more) . It has a perfect location, looks good on the inside, has a wide offer of gaming tables and slot machines and great food in the restaurant.
Finally some practical details: Holland casino Eindhoven is open every day (except the 31st of December) from 13:30 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.
My wife and I visit Holland Casino Eindhoven often. The casino has a large range of slots and more than enough gaming tables. The restaurant is very good and cheap and the people are always friendly. We prefer to going during the week. In the weekends it can be very busy.
