There are casinos right down by the cruise ship docks. To get the taxi to the heliport we walked past King's Casino which had a big inflatable man right outside. Our table partners once got involved at a casino and since there were no clocks in the casino, they walked out the door to see the ship sailing away.
I don't really 'do' casinos, and if I did, I could go to the ship's casino. But St. John's does have casinos if you want to gamble. The website for King's says
King’s Casino is Antigua’s largest Casino with 16 table games:
6 - Blackjack
2 - Roulette
3- Caribbean Stud Poker
2 - Three card Poker
1- Spanish 21 blackjack
2-Texas HOLDEM Poker
There are also 300 state of the art slot machines—all the latest video and high jackpot progressive machines.
We have a full sports bar, and 5 large screen televisions in addition to live entertainment.
King’s Casino also simulcasts live horse racing and accepts wagering from all the major American racetracks in addition to also accepting wagers on every sporting event in the world.
I might like watching the races.
MOst of the nightlife in Antigua is based around the hotels on the island. We decided one night to get a taxi into St. Johns and have a meal in Hemingways. The meal was delicious with a good selection and choice of different items and was very friendly. Once we had our meal we walked down to the harbour where the cruise liners are during the day and tried the large air conditioned casino. What a great place to hang out and relax while playing the slot machines and getting free drinks while doing so!!!!
