Restricted Online Casinos in Cuba
Casino is a pride and glory of Cuba. Actually, that was until 1959. Once in power, Fidel Castro banned gambling. He had his reasons for that – casino was inherently linked to the so-called “Cuban style”. After all, gaming houses were controlled by mafia, which means that the firefight between the competing houses and the corruption at all levels of government are inevitable. Show more
But before banning, gaming business flourished in Cuba. You could play:
- slot machines
- card game
- buy a lottery.
To receive American tourists at the appropriate level, the famous hotels were built in Havana:
- Sevilla Biltmore Presidente Lincoln
- Inglaterra Royal Palm
- The Hotel Habana Hilton Casino
- The Night Club Sans Souci Casino
- The Club Tropicana Casino (it works until now; the local shows are very popular among the tourists), etc.
Hotels and casinos were run by the American Mafia, including such celebrities as Lucky Luciano and his right hand Meyer Lansky. They gave most their income to the government of the dictator Batista. According to the researchers, gambling in Havana was more profitable than in Las Vegas. At that, the game was accompanied by prostitution and drug trade.
Nowadays, gaming houses in Cuba are officially banned. However, almost every large hotel has its illegal casino with the most popular slot machines and classic card games. Several times it was suggested that the ban on casino will be lifted. It was after the departure of Fidel Castro and the lifting of the embargo in 2015. However, casinos still remain illegal.
It is interesting that after the normalization of relations with Cuba, the daughter and grandson of Meyer Lansky asked the US Claims Tribunal to return the properties of their grandfather and father in Cuba. They include an entertainment complex “Marina Hemingway” and a hotel “Havana Riviera”. The total costs of controversial assets exceed $70 million.
Apart from the classic games, residents of Cuba and tourists can do the other best for thrill. For example, some villages run the cockfights, where you can also bet. However, if their participants will be caught by the police, they will be punished.
