Casino Trilenium, Tigre

If you fancy taking a trip outside Buenos Aires for your casino fix, then head to the Paraná Delta city of Tigre, only 45 minutes north of the capital by train. The Casino Trilenium is a mega-structure located on the banks of the Paraná River, meaning you can visit the quaint town of Tigre once you’re done; to spend your winnings, browse antique shops and dine in some of the city’s charming cafés.

Casino Hipódromo de Palermo

Located just under the grand building housing the racetrack at the Hipódromo de Palermo, this is where high- and low-end gambling meet. This casino is a favoured haunt among taxi drivers and night owls, and those occasional punters who come from the race track to spend their winnings on the slot machines.

Casino Central, Mar del Plata

Found in the resort city of Mar del Plata, around five hours away from Buenos Aires, Casino Central is widely renowned for its impressive architecture. It’s part of a pair of twin buildings designed by famed local architect Alejandro Bustillo, who was responsible for much of the architecture in certain regions of Patagonia, such as Bariloche. The casino has become a local landmark and has the enviable position of standing right on the waterfront.
