Gambling in Barbados

Many Caribbean destinations offer plenty of gambling opportunities and Barbados is no different, although you won’t have quite as many options for casino games as you’ll find in other countries such as Curacao or Aruba. There’s obviously a ton of entertainment to enjoy in Barbados aside from gambling, but if you are feeling lucky below you’ll find some information on the available options.

Garrison Savannah - Barbados' most popular horse racing track

The only full casino in Barbados is D’ Fast Lime Casino, which offers more than 20 slot machines as well as several different live table games. The casino is open 24 hours a day and features a bar area as well as a live DJ at certain times throughout the week; US dollars are used as far as gambling currency is concerned. The legal gambling age in Barbados is 18 years of age and a valid photo ID or passport is required to be admitted.

You’ll have more gambling options if you enjoy a trip to the track for horse racing, as just outside of Bridgetown you’ll find Garrison Savannah, which is Barbados’ most popular horse racing track. Races run nearly every Saturday including annual top contests such as the Barbados Triple Crown and the Sandy Lane Gold Cup. Unlike horse tracks in other parts of the world, though, you won’t find any slots or other gambling games at the track so it’ll strictly be betting on horses if you want to gamble while there.
