Casino Cosmopol Stockholm – Sweden

Did ABBA visit the Casino Cosmopol before they wrote ‘the winner takes it all’? It would great to think that Sweden’s most famous musical export had spent the evening cleaning up at the blackjack table before penning another hit.

The Casino Cosmopol is a beautiful art deco building in the heart of Stockholm. It was originally the Bal Palais - a cinema - before the big screen got swapped for the roulette wheel. It is also the only international casino in Sweden.

Swedish gaming regulations are very stringent and the casino has a Let’s Play area where blackjack beginners and the table-shy can learn the tricks of the trade. It’s ultra low stakes and a great way to brush up on your blackjack.

Poker players are well catered for, with a full line-up with tournaments and cash games. Slots fans have the pick of more than 400 games and there are progressive jackpots in play.

There is a fine dining restaurant located on the old cinema balcony. It’s popular: you will need to book. Down on the gaming floor, the Bistro Black Jack gives hungry punters the chance to refuel.

The casino does not offer any complimentary drinks but you can top up at the Bar Cosmopol on the ground floor. If you end up on your back, don’t forget to look up and see the building’s amazing ceiling.
