The Casinò di Campione is the largest employer in the municipality of Campione d'Italia, an Italian exclave within Switzerland's Canton of Ticino, on the shores of Lake Lugano. The casino was founded in 1917 as a site to gather information from foreign diplomats during the First World War. Today it is owned by the Italian government, and operated by the municipality. The income from the casino is sufficient for the operation of Campione without the imposition of taxes, or obtaining of other revenue. It is Europe’s largest casino.In 2007, the casino moved into new premises, designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta. The new premises provide a floor space of more than on 9 floors with 3 further levels of underground parking, giving the casino space for 56 tables and 500 slot machines. The new casino was built alongside the old one, which dated from 1933 and has since been demolished.The casino is illuminated by night, and is clearly visible across the lake from the city waterfront of Lugano. It offers roulette, chemin de fer, baccarat, black jack, poker, and slot machines.The casino became prominent in the news in 2006 when the son of the last king of Italy, Vittorio Emanuele di Savoia, was accused of procuring girls for prostitution to be sent to clients of the casino.

  • I had dinner at the restaurant of the Casino and I then spent the evening at the Casino. Is a huge with many plans, full of slots and table games also beautiful, but it's a bit too much at the Mall for my taste. I think it's inelegant, people dressed as I wouldn't go either to the sea. It would take a bit of selection at the entrance, or some rule a little stiffer on clothing.

  • Not very exciting. Everyone in there seemed depressed, workers were borderline rude. Some fun slots though :-) 
  • Let me start by saying to go to a casino's Italian we must go through Switzerland, which involves the payment of motorway vignette of 40 €. Point 2: all big but not well managed. 9 floor during poker tournaments with 5/600 people it served as a makeshift bar with fake sandwiches that cost like a dinner party, in addition to everything else that cost twice that in most other places. There is no table service. Open parking lot at 14.30 with the tournament that starts at 14

  • I have NEVER seen such awful customer service! No effort in any way making foreign guests at ease what so ever! No effort at all trying to speak english or speak slower so we can try to understand. At least the Poker dealers kindly translated at the tables. Rules seem to be according to who's playing as we had no right to speak during a play but when a regukar customer sests down and speaks with the dealer FOREVER it's fine... I will definitely not recommend what has been my worst casino experience... And i have been to a bunch of casinos all around the world!
  • Casino di Campione is an amazing Casino. It is not so much it's size. If one wants size and space and intimidation, one is better off to Las Vegas. I enjoyed the style, the atmosphere and the culture that surrounded the games. You will find many French roulette tables, that are much more enjoyable to play on than the American counterparts (2 croupiers instead of 1). Last but not least they are open til 5 am which gives you a lot of flexibility to schedule a visit and play long sessions.
  • I would like to know where to find the coupons to take advantage of the free chips possibly on locus of local
