There are many casinos, but not all are the same. Each one has something that differentiates it from the rest, although the ultimate goal is none other than to attract the largest number of customers so that they can gamble their money on them.

Monte Carlo, the most famous… forbidden to Monegasques

Its architectural style is called ‘Second Empire’ or ‘Napoleon III’. Inside, there is an elevator designed by Gustave Eiffel and a painting in which a Spanish woman who caused a sensation at the time, Bella Otero, appears. Its terrace over the bay of Montecarlo is famous, where smoking players can also enjoy the pleasure of playing while looking at the stars and from which, according to rumours, more than one bankrupt player has committed suicide. In addition, it includes the Grand Theater of Monte Carlo, an opera and a ballet house. The most curious thing is that Monegasques are prohibited from entering the casino, according to an order dating back to 1860,
An Indian Tribe Casino…and Hundreds More

In addition to the excitement of the game, this casino is an amusement park located in the highest part of the hotel. There is the Big Shot, a drop tower, 329 meters high at a speed four times greater than any gravitational force.
The oldest and stateliest
It could be cataloged as one of the most beautiful, although there is a lot of competition, or the most elegant, but what nobody disputes is that it is the oldest. It is half a millennium old and more than 450 years old as a casino (the one in Monaco is from 1856). The Casino di Venezia or Casino Ca’Vendramin Calergi is located on the Grand Canal in Venice, in a great palace from the Renaissance era, as it began to be built in 1489, opened its doors in 1509 and became a casino in 1638 The palace is adorned with classical Greco-Roman style columns on each level of the façade and its opulent works of painting, sculpture and chandeliers make the interior decoration of the casino even more glorious than the façade.
