Strategically located just 30 30-minute drive away from Johannesburg’s international airport, Montecasino is considered Gauteng’s premier entertainment destination – not only for its superb casino but also for its five-star accommodation, buzzing nightlife and quality family fun.

Montecasino, part of the Tsogo Sun Gaming group and constructed to the tune of R1.4 billion, has the look and feel of a classic Tuscan village. This is the case of old-world charm meets modern features, with the last word in casino technology nestling comfortably within traditional Italian architecture.

Montecasino provides visitors with something extra’ through over 30 different dining outlets, nightclubs, theatres, sporting grounds, a bird garden and world-class conference facilities.


As can be expected from a casino that is so impressive in size and quality, Montecasino offers no less than 1700 slot games on its casino floor. The floor is divided into areas catering to all players – including a main casino floor for non-smokers, two smoking casinos (large and small) and a smoking and non-smoking private.

Since its inception in 2000, Montecasino has rewarded hundreds of thousands of players and this is not surprising considering the over 100 progressive jackpots offered on the casino floor. Wagering denominations on these progressives range from 2c to R100, meaning players can try their luck to win a huge prize.

Slot games such as Geisha, Shamans Magic, Dolphin Treasure and Ruby Magic continue to pay out top prizes repeatedly. The table games at Montecasino will also not disappoint, with over 60 games throughout the casino, including some of the most popular out there, such as blackjack, American roulette, craps, Let it Ride and baccarat.

Montecasino runs regular promotions to attract visitors where millions of rands worth of prizes are given away in cash and luxury items such as cars.

Dining and Bars

As noted, 33 different food and beverage locations are situated throughout Montecasino to suit all tastes and pockets. From Italian to Israeli, Chinese to American, seafood to coffee shops – every type of palette is catered for at Montecasino.


Visitors to Montecasino can choose from two fine hotels incorporated within the complex. The stylish Sun Square Hotel was designed with seasoned travellers in mind and is the perfect location for business and leisure visitors.

The Palazzo Hotel is a five-star hotel that embodies elegance and sophistication. This hotel is an architectural masterpiece with stunning landscaped gardens, world-class water features and easy access to the casino’s entertainment and shopping complexes.
