Paris is the largest and most famous city in France, with its many great sites to see like the Eiffel Tower and Arc d’Triomphe it is no wonder why people love to visit the well cultured city.
Something that you might not expect to find in the city is a tradition with gambling though as the city has eight glorious casinos located within its limits, more than any other city in France.
One reason why there are these great casinos in Paris is because of Frances’ love of poker, with many of these casinos in Paris having some of the most exclusive poker rooms in them.
Aviation Club de France was founded over a hundred years ago in 1907 and has maybe the most famous member’s only poker rooms in Paris. The club only contains 20 poker tables but is open 24/7 and has a membership fee of €150 a year. It is found on the Champs-Elysees not too far from the Arc de Triomphe. The club hosts some of the greatest players in poker to come to their venue and play the biggest cash games in the world such as the Grand Prix de Paris Poker Tournament as well as the World Poker Tournament. There are other places in Paris that have been offering this luxury in poker rooms for over a century as well though such as The Cercle Gaillon that is found just around the corner from the Aviation Club. Paris does offer some other traditional games like blackjack however, they do not have any kinds of slot machine in the casinos within the city. So if this is what you are looking for from your casino visits then Paris will not supply what you want. The easy answer to this though is to go online and play these games at sites like http://www.luckynuggetcasino.com/au/online-pokies where you will find a massive variety of slots available for you to play straight away.
