Gaming in Krakow's casinos.
Krakow’s casinos – two of them situated in
– lure gamblers with roulette, blackjack, poker, and slot
machines round the week from afternoon till the dawn next day.
Entry ticket costs roughly one euro. Minimum stake is an
equivalent of about one euro. Minimum age of a gambler is 18
precisely. As a measure of precaution against money laundering,
the country’s law requires casino operators to register each
customer, so one should check in on entry and identify oneself
with his or her passport. Casual dress is a norm – though most
local gamblers don business suits – yet those clad in sportswear
may not be let in.
Other gambling in Krakow
Bookmaking has increased in popularity in Krakow in the recent
years with betting shops encroaching even on the
Old Town central historic district.
The city’s bookies invite bets from sports fans on a range of
events from soccer and basketball matches to tennis tournaments
to car races to ski competitions.
Gambling that is popular with the locals.
Most popular with Poles, and Krakow dwellers are no exception,
is the Polish national lottery, Lotto. Millions mark a row of
numbers several times a week in hope of winning a
million-dollar-plus jackpot. And no wonder, seeing that the
cheapest ticket costs as little as 0.75 euro or so.
All the above is perfectly legal for adults, i.e. those of 18
years or older.
