A casino is supposed to wow you while making you eager to reach your wallet. Whilst I wasn't there to gamble I wasn't wowed. I was impressed with the waiting staff though. Easy on the eyes. In regards to actual service I had to growl at a waiter who strolled past my table with nonchalance as though he hadn't seen... More

I like table games, enjoyed all but the blackjack, opened the table, only customer there for BJ. Had to play 2 hands I was told, min of 20K Shilling each hand. The 7 card draw was more to my enjoyment.. Also had 3 roulette tables

Its really spacious with great lighting within it. You are never afraid of the parking space nor the security of your vehicle as you move in.As you play games inside, a drink or coffee is served unto you so as to keep you focused.

I am visiting Kampala about once a year and always go to Simba Casino for a couple of hours. It is usually not very crowded, they serve good quality free drinks and are very attentive to clients. Last night one of the dealers mistakenly moved one of my chips thinking it was in a less winning position than I actually... More

Casino Simba is located at the central hub of the city at Garden City on Yusuf Lule road. I found this casino very quite during weekdays and happening during weekends. They used to organize some programs on Friday/Saturday which includes dance by pretty girls, jazz music and others. They have variety of games, including various kinds of vending machine, you...

Ok so casinos are pretty much all alike. This one is no different. It is a very diverse place as you'll see asians, europeans, and africans (and the rare american) all trying their hand at games of chance. The casino is clean; the food is pretty good and as long as you are gambling, free drinks. There are a lot... More

When traveling to Uganda, I'm sure it's not to spend hours in a fake casino. They try a bit to copy the European / American casino's, but unfortunately they fail. Only when you are tired of your money and have really nothing better to do.
