10 Countries in Europe For a Gaming Holiday

Planning a vacation is always tricky, especially if you are a gamer.

Europe has different countries with their characteristics, advantages and disadvantages. Which place should you choose for a short or long vacation to get the most out of it?

Let’s sort it out together.

1 – France

Despite its popularity among tourists, France does not lose ground among other European countries regarding vacations.

Beautiful architecture and many establishments will not make you bored for a minute.

Monaco, a small state in the south, is worth mentioning. Many people know this place as the gambling centre in Europe, which is true. Casino de Monte-Carlo is a must-have place to visit, but it is better to familiarize yourself with the features of the casino house edge, rules and features in advance.

For gaming lovers, the best place is the city of Montreuil. It houses the Ubisoft studio’s main office, known for games such as Assassin’s Creed, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia and many other top and legendary titles.

2 – Italy

Another place that no tourist misses when travelling in Europe.

Italy is a specific country with its local features and “laws” like siesta. But all this pales compared to the architecture and the Italy gamers know from the Assassin’s Creed trilogy about Ezio Auditore.

The main cities for travel are Venice and Florence. But Venice can be too crowded and expensive.

Therefore, the ideal and most optimal solution would be to choose Florence with its legendary Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore.

3 – Romania

In our opinion, Romania is undervalued in tourism, but the country is a gold mine for gamblers.

More than 400 different casinos nationwide suit beginners and experienced high rollers. Unlike Monaco, where casinos are played mainly by tourists from other countries, everyone gambles in Romanian casinos, including local amateurs and professional players.

In one of these famous local casinos, Romanian poker player Daniel Negreanu trained and eventually won more than $30,000,000 in various games.

4 – Greece

We have mentioned Greece, particularly Rhodes, several times in our blogs and confidently will do so again.

This country lives off tourists and happily welcomes every guest to its place.

The number of casinos and gaming entertainment is not as wide as in Monaco or Romania, but places where you can play bright slots or bet on zero are easily accessible.

Don’t miss:

5 – Czech

Many directors choose the cinematic centre of Europe for their films. Pernstej Castle was seen in the film Van Helsing with Hugh Jackman, and the first Mission: Impossible with Tom Cruise was filmed entirely in Prague. And these are just a few examples.

Having visited almost any city in the Czech Republic, you will see familiar places and landscapes you have previously seen in the movies.

6 – Great Britain

Great Britain offers tourists the widest choice of places because it contains 4 other countries.

If it’s your first time visiting the country, you can’t miss Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, the two famous tourist attractions. But I also recommend visiting various pubs or local festivals.

For gaming lovers, there are hundreds of different establishments nationwide.

England is famous not only for football but also for the strictest and fairest regulation of gambling, so you don’t have to worry about the casino’s honesty.

7 – Germany

Despite its conservative charm and myths about the country and its inhabitants, Germany is famous for its gambling market.

In particular, the German resort of Baden-Baden in the centre of Europe is a favourite place for many gamblers, both local and tourists from all over the world.

As in any other casino, users will find modern slot machines, tables for roulette, poker, blackjack, craps and many other games here.

8 – Spain

The hottest holiday is obviously in Spain, where flamenco, festivals, beaches and gambling surround you.

But be careful when choosing the date for which you are planning your trip so as not to miss the legendary La Tomatina (battle of the tomatoes) or the running of the bulls through the streets of Spain.

9 – Austria

The music capital of Europe with picturesque cities and attractions. The main place everyone knows about is the Austrian Alps, a legendary ski resort, after which you can rest well in several local casinos with experienced gamblers.

One of these gamblers may be Benjamin Rolle, who, in between world tournaments, likes to play in Austrian casinos.

10 – Portugal

And last but not least, Portugal is a European country for a gaming holiday.

Casino Estoril in Lisbon is one of the ten best gambling places in the world, so it will be difficult to pass by. First, it houses hundreds of slots that sound and shine at night. You can also meet professional poker players here since the Estoril poker room is the venue for major world tournaments in Pot Limit Omaha and No-Limit Hold ’em.

Secondly, Portugal is less crowded with tourists, so Portugal (Lisbon in particular) lives an everyday life where tourism is just an addition to the overall appearance of the cities and not a full-fledged ecosystem.
