The Seven Luck Casino is one of the best known casinos in Seoul, with the lounge and 5 restaurants inside offering Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Western cuisines. There is the casino floor itself, on which there are 82 tables games and 121 gaming machines. The casino is not normally heavily populated by players, but then that’s to be expected when you consider that locals cannot enter.
The casino is certainly not difficult to miss, as it is lit up by a neon sign, but it can be confused with a casino of the same name in a different part of town. If it’s poker that you’re looking for, head for the one south of the Han river, in eastern Gangnam. You will not find dozens of tables full of players, but poker is offered, and games do run daily. It is best to call the casino beforehand to have your name listed for a game which would normally start in the early evening. Food and beverages are free to playing customers.
This is relatively small compared to other casinos, but staff are friendly and professional.

The subway is undoubtedly the most efficient and cost effective way of getting around, even if it is not the most comfortable. You shouldn’t be too concerned about the possibility of not being able to read Korean characters in the subway as there are English translations added to the signs. You must of course be old enough to enter the casino, and must be a foreign passport holder. There are no exceptions to this rule.
