Goa is also India’s most affluent state. Tourists, both domestic and international, flock to Goa for its beautiful beaches, flora and fauna, world heritage architecture, religious buildings and temples.

More casinos can be found in Goa than anywhere else in India. The capital city of Panaji has two large resort style hotels which provide gambling opportunities. One of which, the Goa Marriott Resort & Spa Casino, can be found at Miramar Beach, while the other, the Crown Lounge & Casino, is located within the Crown Hotel.

Elsewhere along the beachfront, one can find an array of resorts such as the Casino Goldfinger, which can be found in the Cicade de Goa Hotel on Vainguinim Beach.

Casino cruise ships such as The Pride of Goa can be found in the waters of Panaji. The Pride of Goa overlooks the Mandovi River estuary where many cruise boats and floating casinos illuminate the waters. The ship offers around the clock gambling opportunities for players aged 21 years and above.
