Monaco Gambling Guide

 

Monaco, officially the Principality of Monaco is a sovereign city-state and microstate located on the French Riviera in Western Europe. Monaco shares borders with France on 3 sides and the Mediterranean Sea on the other. Monaco is the second smallest country of the world (after the Vatican). Monaco has an estimated population of 37,800 and it is the most densely populated country in the world. Monaco is a well-known country around the world due to its status as the playground for rich people. Similarly to Zürich and Genova, 30% of Monaco’s population is made up of millionaires.

Monaco is also a tax haven, as the country does not have an income tax, which made it a popular destination for wealthy Europeans.

Gambling has a rich history in Monaco. The first casino (the famous Le Grand Casino de Monte Carlo) was opened in 1858 by Francois Blanc, the inventor of roulette. Gambling is legal for tourists only* and the industry thrives there with many casinos operating successfully. However, local citizens are not allowed to play in the casinos. Although gambling is illegal for citizens of Monaco, they can play online in foreign online casinos, because online gambling is not regulated.
