The Scandinavian country of Sweden, famous for its forests and lakes, in addition nowadays offers a wide range of choice for those looking to test their skill and luck in the casino. There are four Sweden casinos; all owned by the Cosmopol chain, located one apiece in the cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmo and Sundsvall. These international-standard casinos have revolutionized gambling in the country.
The largest of the Sweden casinos is appropriately to be found in Sweden’s largest city and the capital, Stockholm. The Casino Cosmopol Stockholm, located on Kungsgatan 65, offers a huge 37,674 square feet of international-style gambling opportunities, open seven days a week from 1pm to 5am. There are three hundred slot machines and 31 – yes, you read that correctly – gaming tables. Gamblers have six games to choose from, Roulette, Black Jack, Caribbean Stud Poker, other poker games (Texas Hold’em, Omaha and 7 Card Stud), Punto Banco, and Sic Bo, a Chinese dice game. Bets can be between 50 krona and 5,000 krona for most games, though some, such as Sic Bo, allow bets up to 14,400 krona. For those who like to pit their skills against other in tournaments, there are four international standard poker tournaments played at the Cosmopol Stockholm throughout the year. For when one is tired of gambling, there are three restaurants and bars in which to unwind.
The same chain owns the three other casinos which offer a similar experience to the Stockholm location. In Sweden’s second city, Gothenburg, the Cosmopol is located in the old customs house at Packhusplatsen 7. It is open from 1pm to 4am and offers 240 gaming machines and 29 tables. It also gives guests the choice of three restaurants, the Casanova, the Castor (which serves Latin American cuisine), and the Jackpot Bar. In Malmo the casino is also open from 1am to 4am, and enjoys the setting of the ‘King’s Park’, a famous local entertainment venue. The branch in Sundsvall, the smallest casino in the smallest of these four cities, still offers 3,500 square feet and 135 slot machines with ten table games, including ‘Wheel of Fortune’ a game similar to Roulette. It is aptly located at Casinoparken 1
For those who like to conduct their gambling outside of Sweden casinos, horse-racing offers another outlet for that betting nature. There are two racecourses of renown, the Taby Racecourse, in Stockholm, and the Sundbyholms Travet, in Eskilstuna.
