If there is one thing that Malaysia is famous for, it is for Genting and its remarkable casino. Tourists and gamblers from all over the world travel to Genting yearly to have their luck tested in this Asian gem. A premier casino in the region, Casino de Genting offers the latest electronic table games, slot machines and other classic table games such as Roulette, Baccarat, Pai Gow, Blackjack, and more. Open all year round, the only gaming venue in Malaysia is divided into a variety of sections decorated with different themes, from the glittery and fabulous lights from Hollywood to the elite and luxurious setting of Monte Carlo.
On April 28, 1969, founder Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong submitted an application for a casino license to the former Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman, and it was approved that very afternoon. Till today, Casino de Genting remains as Malaysia’s one and only casino. By 1980, the casino had doubled the number of staffs, tables and the number of slot machines.
From then onwards, what started off as a resort-cum-casino has transformed into an empire, with three additional hotels and a diversification of games and décor to be catered to the players. Colors and lights fills the sky of Genting, making it nothing less glamorous than any other prominent casinos in the world.
As the casino grew, so did the clientele.
It wasn’t long before players from every corner of the world started to know about this place, including those from the US, Macau, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Europe. In November 2004, Casino de Genting marked the opening of a gaming venue in its First World Hotel, which utilized the latest gaming technology such as electronic table games and slot machines which used a cashless system.
Casino de Genting has come a long way in establishing itself as one of the best casino in Asia. With over 200,000 square feet dedicated to providing some of the most exciting casino games in the world through the use of the most sophisticated technology, the casino promises to continue its effort in offering the most updated games in the region.
