Review written by Sophie Couard, on April 13, 2016.
Hyères has been a well-known resort on the Mediterranean coast since 1830. At that time, the European aristocracy met here to enjoy spa treatments that were especially popular during the winter months. The town of Hyères has a provincial atmosphere and allows you to enjoy a unique architecture and traditional small shops. The landscape features palm trees that give it a very tropical look. It is easy to understand why the town attracts thousands of tourists every year.
There is also a very large casino that makes it especially interesting for players. The Partouche Casino in Hyères has many strong points that I will immediately describe in more detail in this review about it.
One of the nicest casinos at the Côte d'Azur
The building of the Partouche Casino Hyères itself is worthy of the great casinos of Europe, and it welcomes you all year around in a contemporary and friendly design. The casino is open to all adults over the age of 18 years, but only if they are not prohibited from gambling, and it is necessary to present a valid form of identification.
The slot machines
The slot machines can be enjoyed every day from 10 am to 4 am. The casino offers a great selection of 170 devices from 2 cents to €20. You can play the following games :
- games, where you get the chance to win a progressive jackpot, such as the Mégapot,
- traditional slot machines with mechanical reels,
- ultra modern slot machines with video reels,

Services aside from gambling
There is an interesting game selection available at the Partouche Casino in Hyères. In addition to this large selection the complex also offers accommodation, dining and drinking. You can find out more about the hotel, the restaurant and the bar in the paragraphs below.
The 3-star Hotel du Casino des Palmiers welcomes you in an elegant and contemporary design. it is conveniently located at the entry of the town Hyères, near the sea, and features cosy rooms with private terrace that is overlooking either the islands or the old town.

Overall, the Partouche Casino in Hyères is a very nice establishment. It has a great location in a beautiful typical provincial seaside resort, and the hotel and restaurant are also very good. However, it is mostly the casino that is of interest to the players, and in this regard, you will not be disappointed, as the casino offers a relatively complete selection of games that will satisfy many players.
