Until recently, we never thought about it: going out in Holland Casino. But we were invited and made curious. We thought: yeah, let’s give it a try. So we did. And you’ll never guess what the coolest game turned out to be.
Men want to win. On the pitch, off the pitch. At Life After Football, it’s no different. We’re in constant competition with each other, always trying to get the best out of each other.
And so it was time to go to the casino with each other – the best place to show our winner mentality. The first thing we noticed upon arrival at Holland Casino in Amsterdam West-Sloterdijk, was that it was so much more than just a casino. This is a place for a complete night out. And so we could do our warm-up in the restaurant, Global Dining. Manager Vincent van Riet gave us a warm welcome and explained the concept to us. The team under the leadership of chief Frank Schipper presented the most excellent dishes, from around the world. Mediterranean, Asian, Latin-American, all parts of the world were respresented. At the bar, we ordered a couple of cocktails.
But of course, we didn’t come to just hang at the bar. We came here to play. To sharpen our skills.
Black Jack, Punto Banco, Poker, American Roulette – we were prepared to win every game. But the play that eventually gave us the most fun, was… well… the bingo.
Or, rather, the Live Bingo. Yes, indeed, that is a bingo as you know it, but on a serious high pace. With good music coming from the speakers, telephones in hand, a platter full of chicken legs in front of us and a Bingo Master on steroids this bingo was not for the grey-haired. But boy, was it a lot of fun. Who actually won, we already forgot (or nearly at least), but that eventually became the side issue.
And that was in the end the biggest takeaway from this Friday Night in Holland Casino: it was the perfect night out for friends. Playing is fun, winning is more fun, but the most fun is: Holland Casino really is the complete night out.
