Owner description: Dragonara Casino, the number one casino in Malta, is owned and operated by Dragonara Gaming Limited. The Dragonara Casino is housed within the majestic Dragonara Palace and has been operating since 1964 offering a unique gaming and entertainment destination 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Dragonara Casino is conveniently located within the St. Julian’s are featuring 250 slot machines, 15 live tables, a premier poker room overlooking the St. George’s Bay, a VIP-Lounge for high-roller private gaming, a Sports Lounge and one of Malta’s top rated restaurants. Dragonara Gaming Limited took over the operation of the Dragonara Casino in 2010 and since then has invested over €25 Million in the property. The Casino underwent a major investment upgrade project earlier in 2016 propelling the property into the ranks of the most prestigious and pristine gaming properties in the Mediterranean. Situated on the tip of the ‘Tad-Dragun’ promontory in St Julian’s the Dragonara Palace is one of Malta’s most extraordinary and imposing private properties built in the classical style almost as a grand romantic folly. Built in 1870 as the summer residence of the Marquis Scicluna the Dragonara Palace opened as Malta’s first Casino in 1964. The Dragonara Casino was one of the first major projects to establish Malta as a prime tourist destination. The Palace is a landmark property in Malta surrounded by a colonnaded veranda that abuts directly onto the sea. It retains many of the original architectural and interior design features, which have been successfully adapted to the requirements of casino patrons.

Have visited the casino a few times whilst staying at the Westin. It is not huge and has lots of slot machines, which are always very busy and some tables and a poker room. We mainly play the slots and they are Ok with multiple games on each machine. It always seems a busy venue with mainly locals from what we can gather. It is not anywhere near the style of Vegas, but then nowhere else is close to being like a Vegas casino so I would say it is a fun place to spend an hour or so if you like a bit of gambling.

Went to this casino in July and even though we were up for some gambling we only went there once because one particular dealer was very rude. Here name as mentioned on her name tag was Kristina. This person obviously did not want to be there and honestly she shouldn't !! Some of the people on the table were talking to each other and the only thing she did not do is slap them in the face ! She would through the cards to us like we were animals and speak to everyone in a VERY RUDE way. Even though she was not refering to us, we just got up and left and never returned !

Maybe a little small, but well sized for the Island and resort of Paceville. Very professional staff and well looked after property. If you decide to visit, ensure you take a form of I.D with you.
