Austrian Casinos: Baden
Baden is a small town in Austria, located to the south-west of Vienna and famous for beautiful parks, wine tasting and thermal spas.
The Baden casino first opened its doors on April 12 1934 and was, at the time, the first casino to operate all year round. One of five casinos in Austria, it was closed during the Second World War and moved to the Kongresshaus in 1968.
March 1995 saw a major refurbishment which transformed the casino into the biggest in Europe. Since its move to Kongresshaus, it has seen more than 12 million guests enter the front doors, all with dreams of winning a life changing sum of money. Among them have been some famous names, including the likes of Naomi Campbell and some high ranking politicians.
The figures involved in the Baden Casino are impressive to say the least, with more than EUR270m having been taken home by guests over the years. The casino estimates that its roulette ball has been rolled a staggering 23 million times and dealers have dealt over 12 million poker hands.
The casino has a number of restaurants, including the high cuisine of DO & CO. The restaurant "Dome" has exclusive tables and a stunning setting in what was previously the spa. It's also worth checking out the restaurant inside the casino hall itself. Reservations are recommended for all restaurants.
The first game to be introduced was blackjack (in 1972), followed by American roulette and, of course, poker. Today there are 9 American Roulette tables, 7 Blackjack tables, multiple poker tables and a table for Seven Eleven.
There are some great promos at Baden Casino, the pick of which is probably the ladies night each Wednesday. The prize on offer is none other than a diamond.
