The Montesino was founded in October 2008. The initial idea was based on a vision for poker and more. The aim was to have it be an high-class entertainment centre with competent staff, an excellent operational atmosphere and the best service, combined with fun entertainment.   

The new poker casino has broken new ground and has impressed its guests with a certain something extra, perfect service and multiple entertainment activities. Poker is the focus of our general entertainment program.

The Montesino has a large playing area with more than 40 poker tables for tournaments and cash games. In addition, our guests will find a sports bar with a terrace featuring a beautiful panoramic view, a cosy restaurant area with culinary delights from the “Cooks” kitchen, and an exclusive VIP lounge with luxurious furnishings and its own bar. There are also options for viewing several major sporting events on three projection screens, plus 34 TV screens to watch the events live.

With a multifaceted and varied tournament schedule, as well as ongoing attractive cash game options, the Montesino has been able to make a special name for itself on the poker scene in recent years. It’s not for nothing that the poker temple has been a regular stop on the World Poker Tour (WPT) over the past five years, where many well-known international poker pros have been hosted in recent years.
