“A Multi-Service Complex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is much more than just a casino. It is like a covered indoor street with restaurants, stores, theatres,...and the casino. It is fun to wander around, choose a place to snack, eat, drink...and possible shop.

“Awesome place with friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

This place is great for adults because they have the casino and a great seafood restaurant as well as kids because they have an amusment park right next door. The dealers in the casino were friendly and willing to teach me to play blackjack because I was only 18 and had never played. The amusment park was also fun and was not to crowded! Go check it out and have some fun, not sure about prices...

They also do outdoor shows, I added a pic below!

“Should be called Montekitsch!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I fully accept that people will react differnently to venues but personally I found Montecasino one of only two duds on a recent 15 day trip to SA/Zimbabwe. It is kitsch personified with it's recreation, including washing drying on a line above one of the side 'streets'. All under cover, it's totally tacky with operpriced restaurants offer average food. To be fair, it was very busy and people seemed to be enjoying themselves but really not for me! The one thing that did amuse me (should it have done?) was the sign just inside the entrance from the multi-story car park directing people to the Gun Safe Room! I think they were going for Las Vegas, SA but it just didn't work for me.
