It can be very reassuring for tourists to find familiar things when they travel. Anyone who visits Dubrovnik will find lots of exciting attractions that make them feel far from home, but what familiar forms of gambling will they also come across?
Bingo with a Twist
Bingo is a game that is hugely popular all over the world, so it gives an instant feeling of familiarity when we see it getting played. In Dubrovnik, the Feast of St Blaise is a great opportunity to play bingo with a difference. Held at the start of February, the tombola event is an open-air bingo game held next to Sponza Palace, where losing players get to throw eggs and tomatoes at the caller.
On the other hand, online bingo gives players a chance to play at any time of year wherever they are. The variety, in this case, is added by the fact that there you can choose from various games at sites like Betfair Bingo online, where rooms have names like Cash Cubes, Jackpots Drop Room, and Roller Coaster. This means that the classic game can be played in interesting new ways.
A Stylish Casino
This is also a great city for anyone who enjoys playing casino games. Merit Casino Libertas is a stylish Dubrovnik casino that sits inside the five-star Hotel Rixos Libertas - which is part of the same group as the renovated Rixos Premium - and offers slots machines as well as table games like roulette and poker, so there is enough variety to keep most tourists happy for a couple of hours or so.
The casino also has a bar and restaurant that visitors can enjoy. In the restaurant, a buffet-style service included traditional Balkan cuisine as well as dishes from around the rest of Europe. Other gaming centers here are focused on slot machines, with some of them based on themes and characters that the majority of visitors will already be familiar with.
Buy Lottery Tickets
Buying lottery tickets is a tradition for people all over the world now, with Americans spending an average of $1,000 a year on tickets for the various draws available. In Croatia, the national lottery is called Hrvatska Lutrija and tickets can be bought in local offices or online.
The most popular lottery draws are carried out live on Croatian TV on Wednesdays and Saturdays, which is when you can try your luck with the Lotto 7/39. Domingo also has a draw that you can take part in, so it is worth taking a look at your options before choosing a ticket for a certain lottery.
Sports betting is also popular in Croatia, with local bookmaker shops and online services giving visitors different ways of placing their wagers. You can either bet on local games or else look at international events such as soccer games from the big leagues or international tennis tournaments and such-like.
If you enjoy placing bets, you will find that Dubrovnik has some ways of wagering that you are familiar with but that offer enough of a difference from what you are used to for them to be memorable.
