Uganda is a country in East Africa. It has one city called Kampala which is situated on Nakasero Hill. Kampala is a newly developed city with a friendly community. Once it was known as a looted ghost town with decaying buildings and now it is a colorful, modern city center. The top half of Nakasero Hill houses Kampala's excellent parks, quiet avenues of large houses, international aid organizations, upscale hotels, and government offices. These all benefit from the stunning view of Lake Victoria. The bottom half of the hill is the complete opposite and provides an African street atmosphere. It is filled with shops, roadside traders, budget hotels, markets, and cheap restaurants. There are also lottery ticket sellers lining the streets, as the lottery is a very big commodity in Kampala.
Casinos are the only legalized gambling available, and there is only one Uganda casino which is based in the city center of Kampala. The Kampala Casino is open daily from noon to 6 am. This Uganda casino holds sixteen slot machines and four video poker terminals. It also has twelve gaming tables which include American Roulette, blackjack, Caribbean Stud Poker, Let It Ride, and Pontoon. The Kampala Casino offers its gamers valet parking, a casual dress code, and credit for qualified players. The casino is English speaking and boasts a credit card and cash advance service. Entertainment is also available including live bands, fashion shows, and lotteries.
The casino also has a spectacular restaurant called Fortunes, which has an extensive menu. As well as the salads and starters available, their specialty dish is called Chicken Shaslik, which are strips of chicken grilled in barbecue sauce. There are also meat dishes on the menu and it includes a wide range of desserts. There is also a bar at this Uganda casino offering beer and many wines and cocktails. The local cocktail is called the Kampala Casino Iced Tea. It is a mixture of vodka, tequila, Malibu, Bacardi, Triple Sec, and Coca Cola. It is said that you need to be strong to be able to handle this poignant cocktail.
Although this Uganda casino does not offer sleeping facilities, there are a lot of popular hotels nearby including the Sheraton Hotel. The Sheraton Hotel offers many amenities including a wide range of children's activities, a gym, a golf, a pool, tennis, squash, and a sauna within its health club.
