Nicaragua, in Central America, has a wide range of gambling facilities, which include casinos, racinos, and poker facilities. The majority of the Nicaraguan casinos are located in the capital, Managua, although there are casinos in the other two cities of Bluefields and Masaya. Tourists flock to this Central American country for its lively atmosphere, excellent Mexican food and drink, and friendly people.
The Pharaohs are a chain of Nicaragua casinos, with facilities in Managua, Bluefields, and Masaya. The largest Nicaragua casino, a Pharaohs Casino, is in the city of Masaya. This casino has 320 slots and video gaming machines and 30 table games of blackjack, craps, roulette, Caribbean stud poker, and baccarat. There are two other casinos in Masaya, as well, the Casino Carnival and the Nicarao Casino. The Carnival has 65 gaming machines only and the Nicarao has 40, but it also offers blackjack and roulette for any interested gamblers.
As previously mentioned, Managua has the largest number of casinos. It too has a Pharaohs Casino, with 140 slot machines and six table games of blackjack, American roulette, Texas Hold'em, and Caribbean stud poker. This Pharaohs Casino is part of the Camino Real Hotel, which has 120 rooms. The Barcelo Playa Montilimar is a popular tourist destination with its combined hotel resort amenities and casino.

Casino Fiesta, also in Managua, is a part of the Hotel Intercontinental Managua and has no gaming machines, but table games of blackjack, roulette, and baccarat are offered. Other smaller Nicaragua casinos are both in Managua: the Morocco, with 50 gaming machines and four table games, and the Red Palace, with 25 slots and 10 table games of blackjack and baccarat. There is also a Pharaohs Casino in Bluefields that has 69 slots and video poker machines, but no table games.
It's always advisable to observe and follow the gambling rules in Nicaragua casinos, as laws in Central America are different, and tourists should remember that they are indeed in a foreign country.
