Officially named "Casino de Monte-Carlo", the Monte Carlo Casino is a gambling and entertainment complex located in Monaco. It includes a casino, the Grand Théâtre de Monte Carlo, and the office of Les Ballets de Monte Carlo.The Casino de Monte-Carlo is owned and operated by the Société des bains de mer de Monaco, a public company in which the Monaco government and the ruling family have a majority interest. The company also owns the principal hotels, sports clubs, foodservice establishments, and nightclubs throughout Monaco.HistoryThe idea of opening a gambling casino in Monaco belongs to Princess Caroline, a shrewd, business-minded spouse of Prince Florestan I. Revenues from the proposed venture were supposed to save the House of Grimaldi from bankruptcy. The ruling family's persistent financial problems became especially acute after the loss of tax revenue from two breakaway towns, Menton and Roquebrune, which declared independence from Monaco in 1848 and refused to pay taxes on olive oil and fruit imposed by the Grimaldis.

  • The casino itself is nothing special, there are machines in all and games like roulette, bingo,... but no it is too large. The nice thing is the building and where it is located. Besides they charge you €10 only for entry.

  • You have to pay 10 euros as an entry fee and have a piece of identification to get in. Castle is wonderful and like in the movies you have sports and rich cars parked outside. You find several slots m...  read more »
  • An amazing historical casino with great atmosphere and amazing view of the Monaco coast. The best game to play is naturally French roulette. It will be a mistake to visit Monaco and not place at least one bet in this beautiful casino. Anyway you will be winner, because the experience will reward you in the best possible way!
  • We toured the casino as a family and it is gorgeous. The decor is opulent and it was interesting to see. When you go in the day time for a tour you can take children with you too.
  • Beautiful and grand interiors that makes it he prettiest casino ever. Need to pay €10 for entrance fees. But surprisingly empty and not many players. There were more staff than customers. Seem to be a place for high stake rollers only. For fun players like us, we were only able to afford slot machine games. Recommend to check out the other casino - Cafe De Paris beside it..simpler and much smaller stakes. But if you are already here, it is definitely worth a visit. If only I was rich enough to play here....
  • I visited this stunning casino most evenings with a client. Breath takingly beautiful. Extremely fond memories. 💖
  • Lovely interior and exterior. The world-famous Casino Monte Carlo is actually very small (it seems the public can only access the two main rooms and the restaurants). You also need to pay a 10 euro entrance fee. During the day it's quite empty. Table games have a reasonable minimum bet of 10 euro (this will almost definitely change at night).
