The casino is situated on the main street of Sanremo. If you walk the main street you can snap a photo in front but I highly recommend staying away from the inside.
On the first floor there are 400 slot machines which the casino management is quite proud of for some ridiculous reason. You can gain entry to the slot machine section without ID and there is no dress code.
On the upper floor you find the live games (poker, baccarat/punto banco, blackjack and roulette). To gain entry you must show identification (passport, driving license didn't cut it), after you show them your passport they will take a picture of you with a webcam.
Once you enter the game room proper you can buy chips with cash only (there are atm's outside the room if you dont carry cash). In the foye they have tables for blackjack, punto banco and roulette, in a dedicated sideroom there are French(i think) roulette tables instead of American. Then there is a backroom with poker tables next to a bar area.
I went there on a Thursday night and there were perhaps 50 people on the live game floor, as I dont play slots that was the only section I was interested in. The roulette table was min 50€ to get 50 x 1€ chips, blackjack was min 5€ and min 10€. The punto banco table was crowded so I didnt get a chance to experience it. In the poker room there were two full tables, the remnants of a tournament, apparently there are poker tournaments from Thursday to Sunday.
There was a dealer on an empty poker table near those but as there was no one playing with-n-go I had little incentive to sit down there.
On the upper floor there is a dress code, no shorts and no sneakers. Plenty of men wore polo shirts but everyone wore pants with dress or "dressy" shoes, this goes for men only. Women in classy dresses or pants + blouse.
I went there on the wednesday wearing shorts and did not gain entry, on Thursday afternoon I called them to ask about the dresscode but no one was available that spoke English.
I found this casino subpar, I'd rather take the 40 minute train to Monte Carlo or even Nice to play live games than go in there again, interior was dated but had it's charm.
The management really need to hoist their pants up, update the service and gaming. It felt old and boring, few people playing and little to no enthusiasm.
I can definitely see it sucessfull if it were a little more modern, more action on table/card games rather than slots.
