Seven Luck Casino (COEX)
If you are looking for a place to gamble in Seoul, Seven Luck Casino is your best bet. There are two locations. This one (the one at COEX), and another one at the Millenium Hilton Hotel on Namsan.
The Scouting Report
This is one place in Seoul where you should not have any problems because of the language barrier. It is illegal for Koreans to visit casinos. Therefore, Seven Luck Casino is 100% foreigner friendly. The staff and dealers are very proficient in English. So don't let your lack of Korean be an excuse not to lose your money.
The variety of gaming here is not extensive. However, if you're feeling the itch, then it will scratch just fine.
What You Need to Know
Admission is free. You must be at least 19 years old. Also, you must present some form of ID proving you are a foreigner. This could be a passport or an alien registration card.
