Review - Editor's personal experience at the Gala Casino Gibraltar:
This is a medium/large, very nice and popular casino on two floor levels. On the ground floor there are slot machines, electronic touchbet roulette, cardroom area, Coral sports betting terminals, a bar and the reception. On the first floor there are table games, slot machines, electronic touchbet roulette, a bingo hall, a bar and the Chargrill restaurant. The food is good at very reasonable prices and the service is very good. The management and the casino personnel are very friendly and very helpful. Smoking is allowed in the gaming area and the restaurant. Currently on the casino website they are offering a short break package to Gibraltar - flights and 3 nights stay - starting from £179. I think it is worth considering this short break package to Gibraltar and if you do go I think you will enjoy it. Call the casino for details and availability on 00350 200 76666.
Rating: Very good casino!

Useful Information on Gibraltar
Capital city: Gibraltar
Official language: The sole official language of Gibraltar is English, and it is used by the Government and in schools. Most locals are bilingual, also speaking Spanish, due to Gibraltar's proximity to Spain.
Currency: Gibraltar Pound (GIP). The Government of Gibraltar issues banknotes that are legal tender alongside Bank of England banknotes in Gibraltar. Gibraltar banknotes in circulation bear the words 'Pounds sterling'. Most retail outlets in Gibraltar unofficially accept the Euro.
General: Gibraltar (known as the the 'Rock' - the most famous geographical landmark in Gibraltar) is a self-governing British overseas territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula where Europe meets Africa (only 15 miles distance from the African coast), overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar which provides the only link between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Gibraltar covers 2.5 square miles (6.5 sq. km), making it the fourth-smallest nation or territory in the world, and is the 5th most stable territory worldwide, and the highest ranked British territory. Gibraltar receives a large number of visits from cruise ships, and the Strait of Gibraltar is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. As a VAT-free jurisdiction, Gibraltar's popularity with visitors is enhanced by its good value shopping experience in the famous Main Street. Telephone country code: +350, Electricity: 240V, 50Hz, Internet: .gi
Airports: Gibraltar Airport (GIB) is the civilian airport that serves the British overseas territory of Gibraltar. The most popular alternative airport for Gibraltar is Malaga Airport in Spain, some 120 km to the east, which offers a wide range of destinations.
Transport: The main form of transport in Gibraltar is the car. Motorbikes are popular and there is a good modern bus service. There is a cable car which runs from ground level to the top of the rock. There are no train or tram services within Gibraltar.
Taxis: The Gibraltar Taxi Authority operates the white taxis throughout Gibraltar - good for short journeys and also guided tours of the Rock. The standard tour includes visits to the Great Siege Tunnels, the Moorish Castle, St Michael's Cave, the Barbary Apes (monkeys) and Europa Point.
Buses: Buses from Spain stop just short of Gibraltar in La Línea, but its bus station is only 5 minutes walk from the border. After walking across the border, you can get the number 9 bus to the centre of Gibraltar, or the number 3 bus to Europa Point. Both buses depart every 15 minutes on weekdays, and every half hour on weekends. Buses run from 6.30AM to 9PM Monday - Friday, 7AM - 9PM Saturday, and 8AM - 9PM on Sundays. Trips are just 60p, no matter how far you travel. Alternatively, it is only a 10 minutes walk (across the runway and through a tunnel under the city walls) from the border to the main Casemates Square.
Ferries: Ferries operate to various destinations in the Mediterranean including a regular service to Tangiers in Morocco.
