The trouble with Irish casinos is that they are not really casinos at all so when we see in the Irish casino news that a new casino is opening in Carrick-on-Shannon we know that it is another private members club and it even calls itself Sharks Casino Private Membership Club. Casinos.ie is tempted to pass some comment on the name of “Sharks” but will refrain from doing so. The Irish casino news story reinforces the fact that it is not a real casino as there is not a complete range of casino games available and in fact they are saying that only Roulette, Poker, Blackjack and 3 card brag can be played. The idea according to the Irish casino news is to get extra revenue from the hen and stag parties that already flood to the location but if you are a serious casino player you will have to stay with the online casinos as that is the only place to find a full range of casino games which include casino slots. The new club will do its best to attract players by making membership free and in fact issuing all new members with a free €5 bet. Also in the Irish casino news we see that Paddy Power is offering free bets worth up to €50 but unfortunately this is for sports betting only and is not applicable to the online casino and of course it is for new registrations only. You will have to place a bet equivalent to the free bet that you receive and when you use your free bet the stake is not returned if you win. Casinos.ie recently did a feature on Paddy Power casino which if you wish to read you can find in the Paddy Power section of the site rather than the Irish casino news section.
