So, you’re in Europe or heading there shortly, and love nothing more than spending time playing your favourite games at a land-based casino. While mobile and online casino platforms are now all the rage, nothing beats the authentic experience provided by a real-life venue. And there are some superb ones to choose from in Europe. We have already reviewed the best casinos in the world, however, we have now narrowed it down and we’ve hand picked several European casinos below, all of which we feel are must-visit venues.
Dragonara Casino, Malta
The Dragonara Casino in Malta is as much about the outside of the venue as it is the inside. The building is an architectural masterpiece, whatever time of the day, or night, you may visit. How a casino looks has fast become of great importance to players, with venues around the world continuing to up their game.
At the Dragonara visitors will be delighted to find a venue littered with hundreds of fantastic slot machines, which of course continue to be a huge attraction. Guests can also enjoy table games and poker too, as they take in stunning views of the Mediterranean. The experience comes complete with a superb menu at The Brasserie, with chef David Mifsud, the man behind the food.
Resorts World Birmingham, UK
Resort World Birmingham, owned by Genting, is new to the scene in many respects but is therefore also one of the most modern venues around. Opened in 2015, it’s a state-of-the-art venue with all the mod cons, so this will undoubtedly be pleasing to the younger generation of casino players.
Every casino game imaginable is playable at Resorts World, so whether you love your slots, poker, roulette, blackjack or baccarat, everyone is in for a fantastic time. Resorts World isn’t just a casino either, inside are shops, restaurants, bars and even a four-star hotel. Visitors won’t have to leave the complex during their stay, which is brilliant news.
Casino de Monte Carlo, Monaco
The Casino de Monte Carlos is undoubtedly one of the most elegant and beautiful casinos not only in Europe but on the planet. Its location also plays a crucial role in its popularity, while the casino itself is said to have been the inspiration behind James Bond movies. The Casino de Monte Carlo opened its doors back in 1863 and is, therefore, one of the oldest in operation, with its history being a massive draw for thrill-seekers too.
There’s a vast array of slot machines available to play at this luxurious venue, with other casino favourites such as video poker, baccarat, roulette, blackjack, craps and more also on offer. As well as a splendid casino experience, guests will also be able to visit the Grand Theatre de Monte Carlos and the Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, with both being within the same resort complex.
While there is a wealth of superb casino venues in Europe, the three above are our pick of the bunch for different reasons. The Dragonara is architecturally intriguing, with stunning views. Resorts World Birmingham is a modern complex where everything anyone could ever need is all in the one place while the Casino de Monte Carlo is a luxurious and historic venue.
