Buenos Aires city and province are a hotbed for nocturnal activity. Whether you’re looking to party the night away, find some alternative entertainment for people of all persuasions, or simply hit the slots, Buenos Aires has it all. We check out some of the city and province’s best casinos where you can try and make a killing.

Buenos Aires Boat Casino

This is surely the country’s most unusual and most interesting casino. Envisioned as a replica of a Mississippi riverboat, this floating casino is moored in the south of the city at the Buenos Aires port, and is open to the public 24 hours a day. Come and see the bright lights of this gambling boat in all their glory, pick from 150 tables and 700 slot machines, and check out the Puerto Madero area before or after your casino adventure.

Casino Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires’ most famous casino is located in the docklands area of Puerto Madero. The location makes sense, as this is the area where some of the wealthiest people in the city live. It’s also a haven for tourists, who flock to its upscale restaurants, hotels and bars. This huge complex has everything, from rows and rows of slot machines to poker halls and blackjack tables. Make sure you fill your wallet to the brim, as endless hours can be spend in this mega-casino.

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.

Bingo Adrogué

Located within a closed community in the south of Buenos Aires, this casino is worth exploring if you get the chance. Given its upscale, private-enclave location, the casino is ultra-modern and has a wide variety of attractions, including slot machines, a bingo hall and an electronic horse-racing track.

Bingo Avellaneda

This bingo hall and casino is located in the southern Buenos Aires neighbourhood of Avellaneda, just beyond the city limits of the capital. It stands near the infamous Racing Club football stadium, home to one of the city’s most important football teams. Hit up the casino before attending a football match for the pure Avellaneda experience.
