Up until 1977, there were no operational land-based casinos in Luxembourg. However, there is currently a single casino operating in the country today – the Casino 2000. Casino 2000 is a casino and entertainment complex situated in Mondorf-les-Bains in the southern area of Luxembourg, and it serves as the country’s only casino gaming establishment.
Casino 2000 officially opened in Mondorf-les-Bains in 1983, after the Luxembourg parliament had approved the bill to build the country’s first land-based casino gaming site in 1977. In 2011, Casino 2000 added additional business and conference facilities to the existing casino to meet the increasing demand of the public.
