Montecasino is situated in Fourways, North of Johannesburg. It is a great place if you are looking for entertainment, Restaurants, Casino and a Cinema. It is a fun place to take out-of-towners and tourists.
The complex also offers accommodation in the 5 star Palazzo Montecasino hotel. It is a very modern Tuscan style building where they often hosts international performers.
The casino is open 24 hours and occupies a large space. They have 1,700 gaming machines and seventy-three table and poker games. The property has twenty-four restaurants, three bars and a hotel with 246 rooms.
They also have children’s programs at the Bambini Crèche facilities. This includes a convention and meeting space, daycare and playground.
Security is good and the casino has under roof parking.
My friend Monica decided to bring me here when I visited South Africa in 2010 for the World Cup Soccer. We ate at the Metropolis restaurant and it was an excellent choice. The whole place was geared up for the World Cup and flags were waving everywhere. It was a great feeling to see the place in such a festive mood.
I have been to Montecasino on a couple of occasions over the years. I often met friends at one of the many great restaurants and then went for a live show afterwards. They always have a jam-packed program with comedians and or International performers.
