Montecasino Johannesburg – South Africa

Montecasino Johannesburg

MonteCasino Johannesburg is one of Gauteng’s most popular entertainment venues. A R1.4 billion gambling, retail, and leisure complex is located within the tranquil village.

Montecasino, as it is known by locals, is smack bang in the heart of Fourways, almost where the former set of stop streets originally stood before development ushered in a major set of roads and lights that admittedly make navigating Fourways far easier, but take away the charm of what used to be ‘Fourways-out-in-the-sticks.’

Montecasino appears to be a classic Italian town from the road, like a picturesque Tuscan or Umbrian hilltop village smack dab in the middle of modern Johannesburg’s northern suburbs. It is advertised as one of Gauteng’s top entertainment places, which it is.

A R1.4 billion gambling, retail, and leisure complex is located within the quiet town and comprises a casino with over 1700 slot machines and 70 gaming tables, the 5-star Palazzo MonteCasino Hotel, conferencing facilities, a variety of themed restaurants, shops, and the Pieter Toerien Theatre.

The Montecasino is very popular in Johannesburg. Visitors throng here on weekends and in the evenings for late-night shopping and a variety of restaurants serving Japanese, Portuguese, Mediterranean, Eastern fusion, and, of course, Italian cuisine. The Palazzo hotel, a 5-star luxury hotel with 246 rooms and a swimming pool, is located off to one corner of Montecasino, while the Montecasino Bird Gardens, home to approximately 1000 birds and small animals, is located next door to the Montecasino.

Montecasino’s accessibility from almost anyplace makes it even more appealing. The complex is only 30 minutes from OR Tambo International Airport, is close to multiple other shopping complexes, has easy access to nearly all major highways, and is just minutes from Sandton CBD.
