The Monticello Grand Casino and Entertainment World is the largest and most comprehensive entertainment complex in Chile. Opened by none other than Jennifer Lopez in December 2009, the resort is a recent addition to the Sun International portfolio.
The Monticello not only includes a world class casino, there is also a five star hotel, ten restaurants to choose from, a spa, the Suka Nightclub, and a conference centre that can accommodate nearly 2,000 people.
It’s also one of Chile’s leading live music venues. Acts performing at the time of writing, include Engelbert Humperdinck, KC and the Sunshine Band, Jose Rodriguez, and Creedence Clearwater Revisited.
The Grand Casino lives up to its name with nearly 2,000 slots in play, including linked progressives and smart card cash-free technology. Table games on offer include blackjack, roulette, craps and baccarat. There are 80 tables in play at the venue, so there should be no need to wait for a game.
For bingo fanatics, a 300-seat auditorium, on the second floor, serves up the action. Sports fans can enjoy their favourite games in the Monticello’s Bravo Bar.
As the casino is part of a much wider entertainment complex, there are numerous drinking and eating choices. Meat features heavily on the menu – not surprising for a country famed for its beef.
Although a 45 minute drive from Chile’s capital city Santiago, the Monticello resort is worth the trip. If the entertainment and action on offer don’t press your buttons, it is hard to see how anyone wouldn’t be moved by the amazing scenery and the backdrop of the Andes. Go visit.
The casino is a 45 minute drive from Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport. There is free parking for more than 2,000 cars.
