Push your chips to the center of the table, and lay your cards down – then do it over again. Tens of thousands of gamers come to the Bahamas every year in order to test their luck and their mettle at some of the world’s most lavish casinos, the most famous of which is certainly Atlantis, the fairy-tale kingdom of glittering game stations. The Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino attracts penny pinchers and high rollers alike, with slots that service every denomination of coin and currency imaginable (penny slots do exist!). The Wyndham is also home to the Bahamas’ main Sports Book. The other big draws are Freeport’s Bahamia and Lucaya’s Isle of Capri, both of which feature roulette, baccarat, craps tables, and more.

A Comedy of Errors
You swore after your last island adventure that you’d never enter another limbo contest, but here you are, at the Conch Kraal Native Show, bent over double and getting real low while fire dancers and local musicians parade around you. Welcome to a ridiculously fun night out. The Joker’s Wild Comedy Club at Atlantis offers a less physically demanding interactive experience, but your pride may take as big a hit as a member of the audience, while Atlantis Live has hosted some of the biggest comedy and musical acts from around the globe. The Dundas Centre for the Performing Arts is a great venue to catch a local play, while the Crowne Plaza Tower in Freeport hosts free evening shows (expect comedy routines, live music, fire dancing, and more).
