As its name suggests, Montecasino is a casino, but it’s also an entertainment complex and shopping mall packed with adult and family amusements. Located smack bang in the middle of the northern Johannesburg suburb of Fourways, Montecasino offers a little bit of Vegas in the suburbs.
Modelled to resemble a Tuscan village, the Montecasino complex is huge, busy and flashy. And, with its make-believe sky-roof and pastiche village setting, unashamedly faux.
‘Monte’ as the locals call it, is all about escapism. Whether you’re chasing that elusive fortune in the casino; enjoying an afternoon window-shopping in the dozens of specialist stores; or absconding reality for a while at one of the Teatro Montecasino’s extravagant stage shows.
The distinctive complex also has movie theatres, fun arcades, numerous restaurants, an outdoor bird garden, a skate park, a comedy lounge and hot air balloon rides. There are 2 excellent on-site hotels: the 5-star Palazzo Inter-Continental and the Sun Square Hotel.
Next time you need to leave the rigours of life behind, or just feel the need to let the good times roll, make your way to Montecasino for un buon momento that the whole family will love.
Address: Montecasino Boulevard, Cnr William Nicol and Witkoppen, Fourways, Sandton
