  1. good morning in August, I will be on holiday in Saranda. I would like to know if there is a place to play roulette. bye

    • hello Fappani,

      There are no roulette wheels in Saranda. There is a “casino” but inside is only digital fruit machines and pokies.

      There are a number of places to play live poker around Saranda, but you’d have to get to know some of the locals and be invited to come and play prior to playing.

      I hope this is of some help.
