Casino De Monte Carlo
Established in 1856, the legendary Casino De Monte Carlo is located right on the Place-du-Casino in Monte-Carlo, in a grand Belle Époque palace. Thanks to its magnificent settings, the casino was used as the backdrop in the gambling scenes from the James Bond films Never Say Never Again and Golden Eye.
Fortunately, it is possible to visit the Casino without gambling. There’s plenty of action to choose from, though; from European Roulette, Trente et Quarante and Blackjack, to English Roulette and Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker.
In the main casino hall, the minimum you can bet is €5 and the maximum is €2000. If you take your gaming to a private room, though, there is no cap on maximum bets.
It is important to bear in mind that most Monaco Casinos have dress code. At Casino De Monte Carlo, shorts, t-shirts and sweatshirts of all types are prohibited later in the evening. Gentlemen are recommended to wear blazers or suit jackets at the very least, with dark jeans and smart casual shoes.

Furthermore, the jackpots here are the highest on the French Riviera, sometimes up to a million. With its contemporary décor, the Casino Café de Paris is where casual and seasoned players can enjoy the full casino experience, Monte-Carlo style!
Monte Carlo Bay Casino
