Casino Lugano – Switzerland

Switzerland is more famous for its banks than its casinos but the Casino Lugano has been entertaining gamblers since 1804 and shows no sign of stopping anytime soon.

At he start of the nineteenth century, the main games were biribisso and dice. Today, blackjack, roulette and punto banco are on the gaming menu. There are also both smoking and non-smoking slots areas.

In 2014, the hotel had a makeover with the addition of the new Laurent Perrier Champagne bar and the Chicco d’Oro Snack Bar. The casino’s a la carte restaurant Elementl was redesigned and moved. It offers diners a menu based on the four elements of nature.

The casino is situated next to the stunning Lake Lugano. If you are rolling out of the casino at 4am in the morning the worse for wear, you could always enjoy a refreshing swim in the lake.

The casino uses a CashCard system for the slots. The personalised e-card controls your credit and winnings and enables rapid identification, as well as simplified bonus accumulation.

Stunning views, Swiss efficiency, and the chance to stash that multi-million dollar progressive jackpot win in a secret bank account. There are a lot of reasons to love the Casino Lugano.
