Casino de la Vallee (Italy)

Casino de la Vallee

Casino Overview

Casino de la Vallee is located in Saint Vincent, an Italian town sometimes referred to as the “Riviera of the Alps,” thanks in large part to its famous therapeutic spas.

It was first established by then mayor Elia Page after the Second World War, as a good way to infuse much needed funds into the town’s economy and help with the rebuilding efforts.  On March 21, 1947 at 9pm sharp, the casino opened with the standard “Gentlemen, place your bets,” call of the croupier.  Just three gamblers did so.

 

Since then, Casino de la Vallee has grown into one of the biggest casinos in Europe.

Popular Games

While there is no sportsbook, racebook or off track betting here, there are plenty of standard casino games, particularly slot machines, video poker and table games.  In addition, you can spend your time playing 5 Card Stud, Caribbean Stud, English roulette, American roulette, blackjack, craps, Chemin de Fer, Punto Banco, or Trente Quarante if you prefer. 

Known For

One of the interesting things about the Casino de la Vallee is its “tiered” dress code. While there is no dress codeto play in the Slot Circus, there is a dress code (for men only) playing American games, which includes no sandals, no sleeveless shirts and no shorts above the knee.  The dress code (again for men only) is even stricter when playing French games and includes no t-shirts, no track suits, and no long shorts (i.e. long pants only).

Amenities

There are a number of bars at the Casino de la Vallee - one in the French games room (with cold dish table service), one in the American games arcade, and one in the Slot Circus room.

If you’re so inclined, you can also dine in style at the elegant Restaurant Brasserie du Casino, which includes an impressive wine cellar.
