Review written by Sophie Couard, on April 20, 2016.
Cagnes-sur-Mer has a central location, and is only two kilometres away from the airport of Nice Côte d'Azur. It is embedded in a hilly landscape at the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, and the town boasts 4 kilometres of sandy beaches. Additionally, it also has an interesting history with the famous Chateau Grimaldi, the house of Renoir and the medieval village of Haut Cagne that has beautiful alleys and many restaurants. It is clear why the town attracts thousands of tourists every year.
There is also a casino for people who enjoy playing casino games. But what has the Terrazur Casino in Cagnes-sur-Mer to offer? This is the question that I will answer in the following review about it.
A nice games room
The design of the casino games room is contemporary, and you can enjoy the thrills of games if you are over 18 years old, not prohibited from gambling, and present an valid ID.
The slot machines
You can discover the fascinating universe of slot machines every day from 10 am to 4 am. There are over 180 devices with different types of games that should please the majority of the players. Among them are:
- classic mechanical slot machines,
- ultra modern slot games with video reels,
- video poker games in different variations,
- games with progressive jackpots,
- an electronic roulette with 10 spaces.
All these slot machines are available for players with different budgets, as they accept a large range of denominations ranging from 1 cent to €2.
The casino also invests in new models every year, so that they always have the latest innovations in the industry on offer.
The table games
The traditional games are available ever day from 9 pm to 4 am, and you can enjoy different games at 6 tables. The casino offers the following games:
- 1 table with ultimate texas hold'em with minimum stakes of €5,
- 2 tables with blackjack with minimum stakes of €10,
- 3 tables with English roulette with minimum stakes of €2.
It is also possible to play texas hold'em at 2 tables in a small dedicated poker room that is open every day from 9 pm to 4 am. You can play against other players in cash games with a buy-in from €100 and blinds from €2/€4.
Having a meal or drink, and enjoying entertainment
In addition to the nice casino, you can also enjoy the bar and restaurant services that the establishment offers. These places are perfect to take a break between the games. You can discover more about them in the next paragraphs.
The Central Bar is located in the heart of the games room near the slot machines and table games,, and it is open every day from 10 am to 4 am. The bar has a cosy and friendly atmosphere and offers a large selection of cocktails and beers. There is also a food menu for snacks, such as pizzas, sandwiches and desserts.
The restaurant has a cosy and contemporary design and is located on the first floor of the establishment. It also has a beautiful terrace lounge. It is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 12 pm to 2.30 pm and from Thursday to Saturday from 12 pm to 2.30 pm and from 7 pm to 10 pm. You can enjoy tasty Mediterranean cuisine that changes with the seasons and is prepared with regional produce.
The establishment also offers a versatile entertainment program throughout the year. Contests, calendar festivals, concerts and plays are offered in the theatre, and you can enjoy the rich program.
Unfortunately, the establishment does not have a hotel on their premises, which is not really a problem, as there are plenty of hotels in the town. The ones near the casino are for example:
- the Hôtel Restaurant Perla Riviera Logis ** starting from €62 per night,
- the Lou Paradou ** starting from €66 per night,
- the O Villagio Hôtel ** starting from €74 per night,
- the Bastide Gourmande *** starting from €76 per night.
In the first open-air shopping centre in France
The Polygone Riviera is located on the Côte d'Azur, halfway between Cannes and Nice in the town of Cagnes-sur-Mer. It is one of the largest open-air shopping centres found in Europe, and the largest in France. It features many shops and bars, over 20 restaurants and even a multiplex cinema with 10 theatres on an area of over 70,000 m². It is also the location where the Tranchant group opened the Casino de Terrazur in Cagnes-sur-Mer.
In conclusion, I must say that this is really a good casino. Although the establishment offers a more traditional variety of games, the game selection is attractive, and so are the other services of the casino.
