Review written by Sophie Couard, on March 7, 2016.

The Circus Casino in Namur is located at the edge of the Maas, at the foot of the famous citadel and right at the exit of the city. You will be greeted in a resort built in the early 20th century in an art deco style that was inaugurated in 1914. The establishment was once designed by George Hobel, although it no longer resembles what it once was.

In fact, when it was opened it had two separate buildings that were connected with each other through a covered walkway leading through a garden. A fire destroyed the southern wing in the 1980s, and the decision was made to rebuild it bigger and in a different style. On this occasion, the courtyard was replaced by an intermediate building. Today, everything is one building that has a 3-star hotel on one side (the Beauregard hotel) and the famous casino on the other.

To finish the introduction with these historical details, let us now delve into what interests us most, and take a closer look at what the establishment has to offer.

The casino

The Circus Casino in Namur is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. Access is free to all adults of at least 21 years, and it is necessary to present a valid ID (identity card, driving license or passport).

The slot machines

There are around 180 devices available in the casino. These have been developed by some of the most popular game developers, such as:

  • Aristocrat,
  • Atronic,
  • Bally,
  • IGT,
  • Konami,
  • Novomatic,
  • Orion,
  • Williams.

These devices include:

  • electronic blackjack from €1,
  • electronic roulette from 1 cent,
  • video poker,
  • mechanical slot machines,
  • video slot machines,
  • games where you can win a progressive jackpot.

Some of the most popular games are:

  • Choy Sun Doa,
  • Where's the Gold,
  • Crimson Fire,
  • Lion Dance,
  • Germinator.

The table games

Among the traditional table games you can find:

  • blackjack,
  • English roulette,
  • dice jack,
  • roll it,
  • sic bo.

There are many dice games, which is not very common in Europe. Personally, I really like this and I think it is original.


The establishment also has a poker room which is open every day from 7 pm to 4 am. It offers tables with Texas Hold'em No Limit and Omaha. You can play these types:

  • cash games with blinds of €2/€4,
  • daily tournaments from €30 + €10.

A hotel and a restaurant

Gambling is not the only thing you can do at the Circus Casino in Namur. In fact, the establishment also offers accommodation and dining, which we will outline more in the following paragraphs.

The Hotel Beauregard

The hotel has 47 rooms overlooking either the river Maas or the Citadel. Among these are:

  • the single standard for 1 person,
  • the double standard for 2 persons,
  • the triple standard for 3 persons,
  • the quadruple standard for 4 persons.

Although the rooms are spacious they are not very nicely decorated. Most of the furniture is relatively old. However, the rooms are well-equipped, and offer:

  • a bathtub,
  • a shower,
  • a toilet,
  • a small refrigerator,
  • a flat-screen TV,
  • a direct telephone line.

Unfortunately, you have to get a hair dryer from the reception, which is not very practical.

The Bistro d'Olivier

The restaurant of the establishment is much nicer than the hotel (which is rather disappointing).

The prices are very good and the dishes are original creations of French and Asian specialties. I also have some recommendations and suggest you try:

  • langoustine carpaccio with lemon and wasabi as a starter,
  • John Dory with saffron and crunchy legumes as a main course,
  • Iced macaroons with Valrhona chocolate as a dessert.

Personally, I find this is an excellent combination of dishes!


The Circus Casino in Namur is located at the foot of the famous citadel of Namur and along the Maas river, just ten minutes walk from the city centre. The establishment is surely interesting for the players, although the hotel is not very good. However, this is not very important, especially when considering that the restaurant is much better. There, you can take a nice break from playing the casino games. The actual casino is not necessarily very large, but it offers a good and diverse selection of games. I especially enjoyed that there are so many dice games, which is very rare in the casinos in Europe. The poker room is also very nice. In short, it is not the best casino on the continent, but it is a nice establishment and it is a lot of fun to play there.
