Monte Carlo Las Vegas review
Alluding to the wonderful gaming environment of Monte Carlo, this MGM Resorts International property was one of the more luxurious casinos on the Las Vegas Strip. The casino was an entertaining and friendly with a huge selection of slots, poker and casino games. With up to $10,000 high limit tables available it offered classic casino action in a sophisticated atmosphere and with the personal attention that would elevate your Vegas experience to be the best it could be.
Originally a joint venture between Mirage Resorts and Circus Circus Enterprises, the Monte Carlo was due to be named “Grand Victoria”, having been built to invoke the Place du Casino in Monte Carlo. The megaresort hotel and casino are nearly 110m tall, with a total gaming space of 9,500 m2. Chandelier domes, marble floors, and ornate fountains have earned this casino an AAA-Four Diamond rating.
The company’s tagline was “unpretentiously luxurious”, and it’s often played on its reputation as a luxurious casino to bring in more patrons. On the top floor of the Monte Carlo, however, was an ultra-luxury boutique hotel for the most affluent patrons.
Their 9,500 m2 casino has 1,400 slot machines, 60 gaming tables, and 15 poker tables. The casino has largely been popularised by its appearance in the Amazing Race, where contestants had to count out $1 million in poker chips, but the gaming experience is enough to attract thousands of players as well.
There are both Limit and No Limit Texas Hold’Em games available in their poker room, and even though the poker room holds regular tournaments, there are casual games held in the casino as well. They also offer Baccarat, Blackjack, Crazy 4 Poker, Craps and Roulette, ensuring that every type of gamer enjoys their stay.
The most honoured and awarded restaurant in Las Vegas, Andre’s Restaurant, can be found in the Monte Carlo, serving up authentic French cuisine to patrons. The Double Barrel Roadhouse also features great live performances with delicious American cuisine. Seasonal and authentic Italian cuisine can also be found in the D. Vino. An extensive wine list is also served at the casino’s restaurants.
The Monte Carlo offers great shows from performers like the Blue Man Group, as well as Cirque Du Soleil’s Zumanity performance. Death-defying stunts are commonplace in the Monte Carlo’s entertainment centre, which can also be booked for corporate events and conventions.
There’s no dress code at the Monte Carlo, but some of the restaurants do require guests to dress in smart casual attire. In other parts of the casino, however, dressing for comfort is optimal.
The Monte Carlo subscribes to the MGM MLife Membership Programme, allowing guests to collect points for each service they avail of at the casino. Each dollar spent entitles players to a corresponding number of points, which can be redeemed in other casinos that participate in the MLife programme.
