The Casino welcomed 120 exclusive guests from all over the world for a memorable dinner in October based on the theme “Gaming Lights”. The event was headed by Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess of Hanover.

  • Childhood
  • Fear
  • Combat
  • Love

This new exceptional experience illustrates the ongoing commitment of the Monte-Carlo Societe de Bains de Mer Gaming Department to make Monaco the finest and most exclusive gaming destination in Europe by 2020.

“Gaming Lights”, a dinner filled with lights and emotions for an extraordinary gaming experience the first delights of childhood, chills of fear, combat and love were the themes of the event.

During this exceptional evening, the exclusive Casino de Monte-Carlo guests were able to experience these emotions on four illuminated tables. It was hosted by a Master of Ceremonies experienced in meeting important celebrities: British sports journalist Darren Tulett.

The dinner, created by Thierry Saez Manzanares, Executive Chef at Casino de Monte-Carlo and fine connoisseur of the tastes of the world’s best players, was accompanied with wines from the cellars of Hotel de Paris Monte Carlo.

Following a welcome cocktail in the Atrium, bathed in light, the dinner opened in Salle Medecin with a dreamlike journey imagined by LUM in collaboration with composer and conductor, Thomas Roussel.

The journey began in darkness before the architecture was gradually illuminated with lights and shadows. A shower of luminous confetti captured the space to introduce the Childhood theme, with acrobatic performances by 8 dancers and 12 musicians from local schools – the Monaco GR company and the Etoile de Monaco company.

The theme of fear then took over, in a stormy atmosphere with lightning and giant shadows springing up from every corner. It was followed by the theme of combat came. With luminous lines clashing together to recreate the movements of Kendo, before the arrival of Kendokas, whose performance infused the participants with adrenaline.

And because the Love of Gaming always triumphs, the last scene paid tribute to love in a shower of gold and roses.

The sublime visual experience consisted of 10 dancers, who then invited guests to dance, before opening the gaming tables, including French roulette, the signature of Casino de Monte-Carlo.
