For over a century, the Casinos of Monte Carlo have been drawing tourists from around the world to the small principality of Monaco, a sovereign city-state on the French Riviera. it is the second smallest and most densely-populated country in the world.
Located in one of the most luxurious and prestigious resorts in the world, the casinos ooze audacity and tradition – indeed the Casino de Monte Carlo featured prominently in two of the best known Bond films – Never Say Never Again and Golden Eye, though the original “casino royale” was in fact based on a casino in the little town of Le Touquet, northern France.
The city of Monte Carlo offers five casinos for tourists with different games and looks, and it is true that not many casinos around the world can boast the beautiful décor that the Monte Carlo casino has to offer. Despite the historic feel to the casino the games on offer are still up to date and attract people from across the world to come and play.
Casinos in Monte Carlo are rather strict in order to uphold their professional and historic feel. To start with, anyone who wishes to enter the casino must be at least 18 years old. Further to this there is a strict dress code, men should always wear a jacket and tie whilst women should dress casually. This does not mean casual holiday clothes. Finally the casino restricts gamblers to 30 minutes of gambling time in order to prevent any gamer from getting too carried away chasing losses.
