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 am appalled to read reviews of some kind, maybe those people haven't really visited this place or maybe these people bother the Casino! My set of experiences and views in this place was better than the other, staff, friendly and always helpful, endless activities and shows always impeccably organized. ... Outstanding!

  • Unfortunately this time I feel compelled to write a highly negative review about this property. Let's start by saying that the entrance very often due to the absence of staff there are queues absurd due to visitors without a membership card. The bathrooms which were once cleaned and sorted are completely abandoned and no toilet paper. Distributors of water and soft drinks in most cases are not working for the exhaustion of the products. The clientele is steadily worsening, the Lords of once are all gone to make way for the Chinese or Japanese who are taken by Bus. The wait staff is virtually absent. Finally I want to point out the utter rudeness of people in charge of customer service after 02 my email certificate didn't even deign to respond. Too bad, could and should be a prestigious Casino instead has been reduced to a vulgar game room frequented by low-profile players. I would like to give some advice to the direction: you no longer care about the customers especially when they make polite requests and plausible.

  • Disused Casino. Attended especially by middle low and many Chinese. Could be a jewel in the Crown of Lombardy

  • nice park for an evening stroll or to take your dog for a walk.
  • The win rate is low, but if you play only the coupon it's okay. The craps table sucks and the staff is rude.
  • The only thing to see in Campione d'Italia
  • 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 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!
