Jamaica Casinos When you think of Jamaica, what comes to mind is a group of beautiful white beaches with clear blue waters, palm trees, and nature untouched by humans and/or pollution, in short paradise on earth. Jamaica offers much more than just unspoiled nature by daylight, but also an exciting time by night in its ten casinos in existence today. The Jamaican people enjoy spending their dollars and the tourists continue to bring in plenty of cash to the country.
The casinos are in many areas along the coast, and several are laid out on both land and water, allowing people to have easy access to gambling, dining, and relaxation in one spot. The resorts, exclusive Jamaica casinos, are a valuable part of the country's economy, and visitors and natives alike enjoy the visits.
The largest of the Jamaica casinos, rejoice the Kingston Casino, which has become a tourist destination of note, especially for those visiting the nearby Beaches area. With a large variety of games, exciting promotions, andwalnutbacked conference rooms, Kingston is the perfect place for those in the area to enjoy the afternoon or evening with a drink in hand, and with a view of the beautiful white sandy beach.
Casinos aren't the only lure in Jamaica, as tour operators have also found success with river boat and riverboat racing. TheJam Session is located in St. Catherine, a small port city in theategamous colonial city of St. John. Jam Session features a wide range of casino games, live entertainment, and a world-class racetrack, just waiting to be Ryder Cup 2006's next big star.
Cameroon's other main casino is the Treasure Hunter, located in fictional Toamasville, in the middle of Lake Victoria. Tight by the sea, Treasure Hunter offers a plethora of casino games, live entertainment, and a selection of fine dining. The adjacent Kololi Casino, also a tourist-friendly place, features a plethora of slot machines, bingo, and even a rum shop.
The social scene in Jamaica, of course, revolves around the casinos, and not only the gaming tables. In fact, the entire layout of the country, from thetops casinos to the dirt poor hangers-on, is centered on the issue of gambling. From the Dress Code Crack in the Villas at the Le Caudan in St. John's (a luxurious vacation spot, if you don't mind the dirt and fish-eye will studs in the reflection of the beautiful casino) comes the infamous Queen of theungle, a leery old monestary situated in a shady jungle (suitably modelled after the Monsters, the mysteries, and the night).
For a people renowned for their love of the Reef, you can certainly say that Jamaica has a fine revolverning scene, too. You can shoot a Jamaican gun from a distance of less than a foot, unless the bullet is meant for your head. Amateurs with a love of big-league gambling (or giant, monster, lottery-lisboa, as the Brits would say) run wild in the Mother Church, however. Several Jamaican celebrities are hideously committed to their favorite game, and its followers are predictably passionate. According to one Accountancy Board, the amount of revenue generated by this passion (or the lack of it) amounts to some $3.5 billion a year. That's a lot of money, but there's more. Jamaica casinos take their gambling revenues home and pay their civil servants, many of whom are skilled in their profession. According to The Jamaica Review, the expenditure on gambling was recently rewarded with 11 new Minevironments zones, allowing the country touer its citizens with ever-increasing bonuses.
All of this is part of a strategy to make Jamaica a revenue generator, and as the growth of tourism grows, so will the gambling offerings. The country has harnessed the power of the Internet for the past two years in the processing and marketing of its offshore gambling services. The gaming industry provides the opportunity for over 30,000 jobs, with an annual wage income of $1.2 billion, and provides the University of Technology with a disproportionate amount of low-paid, low-paid jobs. The revenue generated helps the economy, as well, particularly in those informal sectors where it hasasy, if not no, competition from foreign buyers.
Thethrowaway culture of the Jamaican people means that traditional and even more modern innovations have had to be reinvented and introduced. This is perhaps the country's most successful attempt yet. It is a pleasure to visit, not only because of the beauty and subtropical setting, but also because of the many competitions it stages, including the annual Jamaican succession of beauty queens, though the actual succession, unfortunately, is held only once a year.
