Decided to try our luck at the casino poker tables and entered the €80 tournament. The card room was packed for this rebuy tournament. Most of the Dealers were very knowledgeable but one or two were novices although they were closely supervised. Standard of play was high and the locals were friendly and patient with my lack of French. Conversations... More

It looked quite impressive from the outside but inside its just slot machines. I went to play roulette but you place your bets via a machine which ruin the atmosphere. Don't waste your time there is a much better casino about 100 metres further along.

So I spent the weekend in Monte Carlo and if you could believe it - no Texas Holdem in Monaco... or at least that I could find. This casino has tournaments a few nights a week that you can drop into. Other than that, it is your regular style casino for europe.

This casino is not up to par for even the most leisurely gamblers. I agree with the traveler below who compared it to a penny arcade. It's just a bunch of machines (with super confusing games) in an extremely dated room. The blackjack tables are rarely open, and when they are, it's usually just one. The only other table game...

Dear Mr, We are sorry you couldn't come into the Casino, wich access is checked since 2006. It's forbidden to come into every Casino without documents. For french or european tourists, an ID or a driver licence is necessary ; for other tourists a passport is requested. An australian driver licence is not sufficient, we understand that is a trouble... More

Meal and show. Yes touristy but nice entertainment and meal. Good service and a bit of a show for the evening. OK - worth a visit if you like the odd bare booby and some Sinatra type music.

If you've been to Vegas don't go! Very outdated,and only a couple of up to date slots. A lot of the machines had server errors and were poorly maintained. Not for serious gamblers. Building works throughout and no signs to apologise for inconvenience.

Not much of a gambler, just visited with friends who are. Maybe my view is biased but all these look the same. Yes there's certain glamour and I guess as such quite okay.

Having recently visited a Luciene Barriere casino in Montreux, I was looking forward to this visit. It is the most horrible casino I have ever been - and Great Yarmouth is my local!
