Gambling, in Cuba, denotes the wagering of money or some other assets, called 'stakes' on an event with an uncertain outcome. The primary intent of gambling, however, is winning additional money and/or material goods. The result of the wager generally becomes evident within a short period.
A casino is a house that accommodates certain types of gambling activities & additional facilities. Casinos in Cuba are mostly located near or attached to hotels, restaurants, retail shopping houses, cruise ships and other tourist attractions. Some casinos may also host live entertainment events, such as stand-up comedy, concerts, and sporting events.
