Casino Dominicus Ups the Ante in the Dominican Republic
Comfortably nestled between the small fishing village of Bayahibe and the tropical mecca of La Romana on the southeastern shores of the Dominican Republic, Casino Dominicus, a new high-stakes, Las Vegas-style casino debuting in December 2007, promises an unparalleled gaming experience engulfed by the natural splendor of this true players’ paradise. Highly arched ceilings, rows upon rows of regal carpeting and precious gold undertones will adorn the bustling gaming rooms, perfectly complementing the royal grandeur and elite level of service encountered by guests of this world-class casino.
Featuring Las Vegas odds, an exclusive players' club and the highest limits in the nation, Casino Dominicus will treat players to a luxurious, private gambling adventure. Lower minimum bets, when paid in pesos, will allow players the flexibility to further stretch their chances, while premier entertainment, haute cuisine and quality shopping will round out the offerings of this emerging destination, placing it on par with the major gaming establishments of the world.
Thick, green palm fronds rustle in the breeze, while warm, salty sea foam tickles your toes. Charming hotels lined by cobblestone streets and flourishing gardens filled with star fruits and coconuts seem to blend seamlessly with the verdant backdrop of lush forest and towering, majestic mountains. In the distance the pulsating beat of an intoxicating rhythm underscores an exhilarating soundtrack of slots spinning, dice rolling and highly coveted tokens spilling to the floor.
As the island's only casino with a players' club, a loyalty rewards program for frequent gaming, Casino Dominicus will provide two introductory offers, including free $20 match-play coupons and free $20 buy-in on slot machines. Club members will be able to accumulate points for rewards based on their play frequency. Meanwhile, members and non-members alike can earn comps for free rooms, meals and airfare at any of the casino's twenty-three gaming tables, thanks to a state-of-the-art player tracking system, unmatched by any other casino in the country.
From standard games such as Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Three Card Poker and Texas Hold'em Poker to new favorites like Caribbean Stud Poker and Mini Baccarat, Casino Dominicus will provide a variety of ways to win big, along with same-day cash back, exclusive $5 and $10 high paying slot machines and complete ticket-in ticket-out technology, resulting in the only cashless betting system in the Dominican Republic.
For sports fans and racing enthusiasts, Casino Dominicus' Race and Sports Book will give guests the opportunity to wager on major sporting events and horse races from around the world, including live simulcasts from the U.S. and Canada, bringing top-of-the-line gaming technology to the Dominican Republic. Soft, plush chairs and 42-inch, flat screen televisions will create the ideal setting for witnessing all of the action while relishing the comfort and luxury of the tropics.
The casino complex will additionally offer distinctive nightlife and entertainment and a collection of retail spaces, from expansive luxury shops to small boutiques of handmade, local crafts. The development's 1,000-seat theatre will bring Vegas-style, grand-name acts, including international and local talent, to this otherwise quiet haven, while the chic disco bar will serve fresh fruit cocktails, Caribbean spirits and light appetizers amidst lively conversation and energetic Bachata beats, the Dominican’s spin on 'country' music.
Three restaurants, ranging from fine cuisine to informal fare, will complete the destination's plentiful offerings. As an upscale dining option, Vesuvio at Casino Dominicus, like its original location in Santo Domingo, which has been delighting Dominican taste buds for over half a century, will serve classic Italian dishes and fresh seafood, including lobster, mussels, shrimp and red snapper, all flavored with a Caribbean twist. For guests desiring lighter, more casual fare, a sports bar will offer a full menu and drinks in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, while a contemporary sushi bar in the main shopping center will tempt more adventurous palates.
Operating seven days a week and only fifteen minutes east of the La Romana-Casa de Campo International Airport, Casino Dominicus will be easily accessible for all travelers to the La Romana and Bayahibe region and will provide continuous nightly shuttle service to the Coral Canoa Resort, Gran Dominicus, Iberostar Dominicus, Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach and Viva Wyndham Dominicus Palace.
