Gambling at Monte Carlos
By Mansi Gupta
The unique hub of gambling, a paradise for all the gaming aficionados and
an ideal place to rejoice and lift your spirits, Monte Carlo is not
unknown to any avid gambler. The place exhibits not just the efficiency of
uniformly clad gamblers but also their matchless zeal towards gaming.
Monte Carlo is thus worshipped as the best and timeless haven for all
gamblers across the globe. The origin of Monte Carlo can be traced back to
the mid-nineteenth century when Prince Charles III of Monaco built a grand
casino in his not so big principality. He named that part of Monaco, on
which the casino was built, Monte Carlo, after his name.
Designed in 1878 by the famous architect of that era, Charles Garnier, the
Le Casino Monte Carlo casino is a mark in itself. The atrium of this
magnificent building is made of marble and covered on its sides by 28
Greek columns made from onyx. While its spacious auditorium is painted in
red and gold and embellished with bas-reliefs, frescoes and sculptures.
Besides everything else, the gambling rooms of the Le Casino de Monte
Carlo act as a timeless pull. There are many huge gambling rooms that are
wonderfully decorated with beautiful art work- sculptures and paintings
etc. the mesmerizing beauty o these games add to the enthusiasm to play
different games of chance. However, a paradigm example of creativity and
elegance are the private rooms of this casino. Parading European styles
and culture to its best, these private rooms are incredibly glamorous. It
is a lifetime experience to play some of the hottest games like European
roulette, English Roulette, trente et quarante, blackjack etc. within
these richly-decorated four walls.
Apart from the famous Le Casino Monte Carlo, there are several other good
hubs in Monte Carlo to spin the wheel of fortune. Known for its 19th
century ambience, the Le Café de Paris casino is meant only for players
above 21 years of age. American roulette, baccarat, blackjack, chemin de
fer, electronic roulette etc. are the largely played games here.
But the young adults between 18-21 years should not get disappointed.
Adhering to the dress code they can also successfully try their luck at
the well-known Le Sun Casino that is located in the Monte Carlo Grand
Hotel. The casino offers a set of 27 tables games, baccarat, and American
roulette, blackjack, chemin de fer, craps and punto banco.
The Le Sporting Monte Carlo casino is a summer attraction. The casino that
opens from last Friday of June to middle of September is known for its not
less than 62 slot machines and 24 table games that include roulette,
baccarat, banque a tout va, blackjack, chemin de fer, English roulette,
French Roulette and punto banco.
These casinos and many others have largely contributed to their nation
i.e. Monaco's economy though its economy is not just based on gambling and
tourism. Yet in today's world, Monaco is globally acclaimed as the epitome
of the gaming world, a place that conjoins gaming and wealth with beauty
and international sophistication.
