Opening Hours

Open 24 hours

Not just a casino but a vacation destination. That is Montecasino, a full service casino leisure complex established in South Africa in 2000. The property, designed in an elegant Italian style, features everything you might need for a carefree escape- besides the casino, you will find hotel accommodation, conference facilities, dining, shopping, entertainment, child care, gardens, ATMs and foreign exchange services and much, much more. Located in Johannesburg in SA's vibrant Gauteng Province, the complex is owned by Togo Sun Holdings, as part of their group of gaming and hotel properties in Africa and the Seychelles.

The Casino

The property's motto, "We've got it", could easily be amended to read, "We've got it all". And this expansiveness is embodied in the casino, whose huge floor is divided into sections to suit all tastes - smoking, non-smoking public and private areas. A grand total of 1700 slot machines await your pleasure and the palpable excitement of the players on all sides of you will add immeasurably to your gaming experience. Nearly 100 progressive slots are offered, with jackpots in the hundreds of thousands of rand. For those who prefer the elegant mood of casino table games, take your pick from among 70 tables with favorites such as blackjack, American roulette, craps, baccarat and poker.

The Hotels

Enhance your visit with accommodation fit for a winner. Not one but three hotels are available to be your home away from home. Be kind to your wallet with the attractively futuristic style Sun Square, which has 180 rooms for business travelers and vacationers alike; enjoy the indoor outdoor bar and lounge, whose wooden deck overlooks the swimming pool. For the ultimate in luxury, the serenely elegant Palazzo Hotel combines 246 sumptuous air conditioned rooms and penthouse suites with convenient access to both the Montecasino facilities and the nearby commercial district of Sandton. The latest addition to the complex is the 194 room Southern Sun. While its exterior is modeled after an Italian villa of the 15th century, inside the eclectically furnished hotel is modern and comfortable.

Dining and Entertainment

Lively casino and luscious rooms. Could you ask for anything more? How about a selection of restaurants to please your palate? You'll discover more than 20 eateries of all kinds and price ranges, with delectable specialties ranging from upscale ethnic cuisine to simple - and simply delicious - steak. Step out after dinner to the cinema (one of 15, with plenty of family friendly options) or a theater performance, or perhaps a comedy club. The next day, enjoy a morning outdoors observing amphibians, reptiles and mammals at the Bird Gardens. The amazing, enormous Hyundai Hot Air Balloon is right nearby, if you'd like to go for a ride.
