In the early twentieth century many spa towns in the South of France built casinos to entertain their visitors from the cities. Some of these survive. The original casino in the town of Alet closed some years ago, but a new one was built on the outskirts of town just off the N118. The Casino d'Alet-Les-Bains is located at: Avenue des Pins. Neither the modern pink cement building, its flashing blue neon lights outside, nor its dozens of slot machines inside do much to enhance the charm of the town, but at least it is well out of the centre and provides something for the town's more philistine visitors to do. On the positive side, it also puts on art exhibitions for the non-Philistines. Casino d'Alet-les-Bains offers 55 slot machines. They have American Roulette, Black Jack and Boule table games, they do not have live poker. Casino is open from 11am to 4am, it is situated 35 km from Carcassone. Gaming currency is euro.
