The rich and the famous have been attracted to Monaco since the early 20th century, with its beautiful setting offering one of the most iconic views on the planet.
Surrounded on three sides by France and occupying just under 0.75 square miles of the Cote d’Azur, the principality hosts the Monaco Grand Prix every May and gamblers flock to the Place du Casino in Monte Carlo throughout the year.
The casino dates back to the 1800s and is widely recognised across the industry as the leading establishment in the world.
Its gaming rooms offer a wide variety of slot machines in the Salle Renaissance and the Salle des Ameriques, and some of these slot machines you can try for free online before visiting the casino.
If table games take your fancy there’s the Salle Europe featuring Texas Hold’em Poker, European Roulette, Blackjack, Trente et Quarante and English Roulette, offering players of all abilities the chance to enjoy this legendary venue.
At the heart of the room is a bar serving a wide variety of drinks and refreshments to help you relax as you immerse yourself in the casino’s atmosphere.
The Salle Medecin and Salles Touzet offer more table games and slot machines, while in the winter you can unwind on the Medecin terrace.
The Bar des Prives mixes drinks for the clients of the private lounges every night and next door are a handful of rooms that are available on request.
These offer a space that can be closed off to ensure VIP privacy and a fully personalised experience.
During the summer you can play the tables at the Salle Blanche & Terrasse and enjoy its stunning panoramic view across the Riviera. On your way to the terrace, there’s a lovely mosaic bar offering more refreshments.
Le Train Bleu and Le Salon Rose restaurants provide excellent menus to complete a memorable visit to the Casino de Monte-Carlo.
Francois Blanc, the founder of the Societe des Bains de Mer, developed the casino during the 19th century, completing his vision in just three years.
The venue sits alongside the Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo, Cafe de Paris and the Monte-Carlo Pavillions to create a truly unique destination for gambling enthusiasts.
You can even visit without wagering at the tables or on the slots, as the casino offers tours of the venue to groups of people every morning.
A visit to Casino de Monte-Carlo is an experience not to be missed and it’s one that should be on everyone’s bucket-list.
