You don’t have to be a big shot gambler to revel in the thrill of taking a risk at the blackjack table or taking a chance at a game of roulette. Maine gambling offers the same excitement of a casino in Las Vegas or Atlantic City, on a smaller-scale and at a more affordable price. There is something for everyone, from the beginner to expert gambler at Hollywood Slots Bangor and Oxford Casino.
Slot machines are a fun way to gamble without losing a ton of money and can start for as little as 1 cent. If you’re in Hollywood Slots and feeling lucky, try a live table game of poker or blackjack where the stakes are high and you could really win big!
Gaming, gambling and wagering can be an addiction, but visiting a casino should be a casual night of fun. Maybe you’ll win, maybe you’ll lose–that’s the appeal to gambling. It’s living on the edge without really living on the edge. Some of Maine casinos include entertainment like comedian Bob Marley and top live bands. Prepare to have fun, have a laugh, and always remember to play responsibly within your limits.
If you don’t get your kicks in a casino, try a visit to the racetrack instead. Harness racing is popular in Maine, with two major raceways located in Bangor and Scarborough. Nothing beats the excitement of picking a horse, betting big, and cheering it on as it rounds the final stretch to the finish line.
Visitors will also find that all Maine gambling and racing destinations are within easy driving distance of many popular tourist towns and tourist attractions to complete your Maine vacation.
