Casinos also contribute to the amazing nightlife in Malta. Casinos are not very popular with the locals, maybe even because the law stipulates that you have to be 25 years old to enter a casino (if your nationality is Maltese). However when it comes to foreigners either living on the island or visiting Malta for a holiday, then casinos are very popular.
You can choose from a stylish colonial-style villa, a modern hotel complex, or a restored 17th century harbour-side palace. All provide great entertainment whether you are new to the tables or an experienced gambler.
At the moment Malta has 4 casinos that offer top gambling facilities. When it comes to dining out, these casinos also offer a splendid choice of cuisines from international to Mediterranean specialities at their exceptional restaurants, as well as bars and open-air venues for a chat and a sociable drink.
