Review written by Sophie Couard, on March 8, 2016.
The history of Venice and casinos dates back to the 17th century when the first casino in Italy opened. Today, the city has several casinos.
One of the casinos is the Ca 'Noghera which opened in 1999. It is located near the airport Marco Polo and has a very modern design. It was the first casino in the country to offer a selection of American casino games to their players.
Let us now see what the casino has to offer.
A nice and varied game selection
Let me start the review about the casino with some bad news. Unfortunately, you have to pay an admission of €5 if you want to enter the gaming hall, which by the way is 5,000 m² large. Furthermore, you must also present a valid ID (identity card, driving license or passport). The casino is open to everyone over 18 years.
The slot machines
The slot machine room is open Sunday to Friday from 11 am to 3 am and until 3.30 am on Saturday. There are more than 600 devices from 1 cent to €10. You can choose from:
- traditional slot machines,
- video slot machines,
- video poker,
- multi-game devices,
- games with a progressive jackpot,
- multiplayer electronic roulette games,
- an electronic wheel of fortune.
The table games
The area with the traditional games is open Sunday to Thursday from 3.30 pm to 3.15 am and until 3.45 am on Saturday. There is a good selection of table games allowing you to play:
- fair roulette,
- Caribbean stud poker,
- French roulette,
- chemin de fer,
- punto banco.
There is also a very nice poker room in the establishment. Here, you can test your abilities to play against other people at a game of Texas Hold'em, which is available as tournaments or cash games.
Three restaurants and a bar
Complementing this great game selection, the Casino Ca 'Noghera in Venice also offers other types of services. You can find three restaurants (which are open daily from 7 pm to 11 pm) and a bar (which is open the same hours as the slot machine room). You can take a break there or just relax between the games.
The Ristorante il Milione di Marco Polo
This restaurant is ideal for a meal (even a quicker one), and it offers a creative cuisine that includes meat and fish dishes of the Mediterranean and Venice served in a sophisticated and glamorous atmosphere.
In this restaurant you can find high quality products and wines from around the world, and it is renowned for their good food. This is the perfect place for a quick bite of high quality cuisine.
As the name suggests, you can find a nice selection of pizzas in this restaurant. The pizzas are baked in a wood oven and excellent regional products are used. You can find all the classics as well as some more original creations.
The Lounge Bar
There is also a lounge bar in the centre of the slot machines room where you can enjoy a good glass of wine or even a cocktail. The bar has a modern atmosphere and is tastefully decorated. It offers a good menu with fair prices.
Unfortunately, the establishment does not have a hotel. Fortunately, there are many hotels available in Venice, as the city attracts a lot of tourists. Some of the recommended hotels nearby are:
- the B&B Casa del Miele Venice with prices starting from €76 per night,
- the B&B Cà Noghera Da Romolo with prices starting from €89 per night,
- the Noghera with prices starting from €91 per night.
A town with many sights
The Casino Ca 'Noghera in Venice is right next to the Marco Polo airport. The unusual and fascinating Italian city lets you dream when you explore its many canals on a gondola. It is also full of interesting monuments, either political, religious, economic or cultural. You can also visit many different palaces, such as the Ca 'd'Oro, which was built in the 18th century, but also churches and beautiful basilicas that allow you to discover the charm of the Italian tradition with religion. And then there is also the legendary St. Mark, that combines the pleasures of shopping with architectural masterpieces.
Sure, you probably will not go to the Casino Ca 'Noghera in Venice to enjoy the location or the old building, as the establishment is relatively new and located near the famous lagoon. Well, when you go there, you will probably want to play the casino games, and in this field, the establishment definitely succeeds, as they offer a great and varied game selection with many American games.
